Remove Your Swagger and Take Up Your Cross

Chandler Book

Matt Chandler has released a new book called, To Live Is Christ to Die Is Gain. Many I'm sure still remember his first book, The Explicit Gospel, which is an excellent book! Before getting into this book, I want to first mention that I think Chandler is one of the best preachers in the world, YES, the world. If you haven't heard the man preach, check it out.

daddaughter

My job consists of me driving around from cafe to cafe, finding wifi and designing websites. Normally I won't witness anything enthusing. In fact, on more than one occasion I've heard people brag about their partying over the weekend and how drunk they got.

Spitting into the Sky

spit

At the end of C S Lewis’ Til We Have Faces there is this amazing scene. The protagonist, Orual, at the end of her life comes to face the gods.

She comes with her case against them – a large book – but arriving finds only a small scrap of paper scribbled with accusations. She reads her complaints to them again and again but they do not respond. In the end it is her complaint against the … [Read more...]
