The Nones, The League & Death of the Nuclear Family

spring-break-sun

It’s a Homebrewed CultureCast Spring Break Special! Jordan took his family to Disneyland this week, so Christian recruited his wife, Rev. Amy Piatt to co-host. They act pretty much like what you’d expect a married couple hosting a radio show together to act like, so that’s kind of entertaining in itself. [Read more...]

The Problem With the Tebow Easter Extravaganza

bilde

I didn’t see Tim Tebow’s Easter Sunday appearance in Texas. For one, it’s in Texas and I’m not. Plus I kind of have a standing gig on Sundays. But more than that, I was irked when I heard about the big event being planned on, of all days, Easter Sunday. For the most part, I [Read More...]

NBA’s Jeremy Lin and The “Messiah Formula”

jeremy_lin_1211

No, he doesn’t go down on one knee every time he nails a dunk or a perimeter shot. And as far as I know, he’s not building any hospitals in far-off countries. But the 23-year-old point guard for the New York Knicks suddenly finds himself in a spotlight familiar enough to Tebow that the pair [Read More...]

Did Saturday Night Live’s Tim Tebow Skit Go Too Far?

Living in Colorado, I get more than a healthy dose of Tim Tebow Mania. I’ve written about the Tebow phenomenon before, but now, Saturday Night live has chimed in with their own skit: Some, such as the perpetually offended Pat Robertson, came out guns blazing after the skit aired, saying it was an affront both [Read More...]

Tim Tebow: The Mile High Messiah

tim-tebow-broncos

You don’t have to be from Colorado these days to hear about the so-called “Tebow Mystique.” An adoration for the new Denver Broncos quarterback that borders on hero-worship or even idolatry, the praise he is enjoying is, in itself, newsworthy. And yes, though the winning streak led by Tebow has been buttressed by a generally [Read More...]

The Only Thing We Have To Fear…

Several people asked me to write and update after I went to the Red Letter Christians retreat in Pennsylvania. First off, it was an incredible trip. To share time, meals and ideas with fellow authors and speakers for three days was a rare opportunity for which I’m greatly humbled and thankful. Tony Campolo, you rock! [Read More...]
