This has been a remarkably busy summer for me personally. Lot’s of milestones for the kids, and on top of my other responsibilities, I’ve not been able to post as frequently at Patheos as I would like to. But amid the busyness, I’ve been receiving requests to appear in different venues. If you’re interested in tuning in to hear me interviewed about my latest book, Man of the House–or you would actually like to attend an event where I will… Read more

People that hate the traditional family–you know, the natural family, the one instituted through the union of a man and a woman–these people love to quote Luke 14:26– If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.

You could say that the modern world reduced things to atoms, and when it came to social life, especially politics, the modern world reduced everything to individuals. For liberals, a man’s identity and his freedom were sacrosanct, and social institutions had to justify themselves to him. You could go on to say that the post-modern world has split the atom. And finding that individuals are not the stable things modern people thought they were, kings and men are working hard… Read more

A few years back there was a flash of enthusiasm among people who read books published by InterVarsity Press for something called “culture making”. The idea, as I recall, had something to do with creativity, that and the notion that Christians shouldn’t be preoccupied with politics, or even apologetics. The world could use more beautiful things, and if Christians made more of them, they’d be more attractive. If I’ve misrepresented this, please forgive me. But it is the impression I… Read more

I’ve been working my way through a marvelous book by my friend Allan C. Carlson entitled, Family Cycles. The book really should be mandatory reading in every conservative seminary in the land. When I was last with Allan I asked him why, with all the ostensible commitment to the traditional family in places like the Southern Baptist Convention, his books aren’t more widely read among conservative evangelicals. He didn’t know. But reading his latest book should be required for anyone… Read more
