Disquiet Time (and a New Patheos Blogger)

In an interesting convergence, I was asked to review the book Disquiet Time: Rants and Reflections on the Good Book by the Skeptical, the Faithful, and a Few Scoundrels on my blog, and not long afterwards, I learned that one of its editors and contributors, Cathleen Falsani, is now blogging at Patheos. It thus seemed [Read More...]

The Bible – Jerry Sumney’s Interactive Textbook

I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to participate in the Patheos book club about Jerry Sumney’s interactive textbook, The Bible: An Introduction. While focused on the academic matters one would expect, such as situating the text in its ancient context, and clarifying scholarly perspectives on matters ranging from its sources to its meaning, Sumney [Read More...]

Late to Love

When I heard that Sam Rocha, fellow Patheos blogger, was releasing what he called an “Augustinian soul album,” how could I not be intrigued? And so, when I heard that he was looking for reviewers to listen to and blog about the album before its release, I jumped at the opportunity. The album is called [Read More...]

RSS Feed

Hello blog readers! I hope that most of you who have subscribed to my blog's RSS feed are continuing to see posts appear. But I know that at least a couple of people have found that, since the Patheos upgrade, they are no longer seeing new posts. I thought I would mention it, in the [Read More...]

Patheos Upgrade

The Patheos website will be undergoing an upgrade, a process which will last until sometime tomorrow if all goes smoothly. You should be able to continue commenting and discussing, but I will not be able to post until the upgrade is done. When it is, I'll let you know!   [Read more...]

Look Up From The Bible

The above quote from Eric Reitan comes from a post he wrote offering five Christian reasons to doubt Biblical inerrancy. That post in turn was responding to the Patheos multi-blog conversation on progressive Christianity and the Bible. Click through to explore both in more detail. The post by Derek Flood on an inspired but not [Read More...]

Got Religion?

I’m delighted to be part of the Patheos book club about Naomi Schaefer Riley’s book Got Religion?: How Churches, Mosques, and Synagogues Can Bring Young People Back. Don’t miss that there is a giveaway if you don’t already have a copy of the book! The book seeks to make sense of the current generation of [Read More...]

All-Time Least Popular Posts!

I got the idea from Fred Clark. To celebrate the 5th anniversary of Patheos, we were asked to list our top posts. But everyone does that, and so it seems so uninteresting – especially when a list of the most popular posts on this blog are always visible in the sidebar. And so I thought [Read More...]

Patheos @ 5

Today is the date that Patheos is celebrating to mark its fifth year. It was actually founded in 2008 but really began to take off the following year. Today you’ll find lots of Patheos bloggers recapping their experience. I have a round-up of my least popular blog posts of all time to share later today. And [Read More...]

Patheos Posts on the Real Nye-Ham Debate

Today I made a spoof post about the upcoming debate between Ken Ham and Bill Nye, but there have been a lot of more serious treatments of the subject, including a number here on Patheos blogs. Evangelicals are not necessarily more likely to side with Ken Ham than other Christians. Geek Goes Rogue will be [Read More...]

Defining Progressive Christianity

The above definition came my way via the Patheos Progressive Christian portal page on Facebook, although it did not originate there.   [Read more...]
