It’s a short but powerful story from ESPN of how Mark Schlereth, a former NFL player, used to spend time with his son, Daniel. After Mark talks about being around for his son despite [Read More...]

Bowdoin College: Religious Freedom Is “Alive and Thriving”

Tim Keller on Mars Hill Preaching, Homosexuality, and Transgender Identity

I recently had the privilege of interviewing Manhattan pastor Tim Keller for Christianity Today. The interview was about Keller’s new book Encounters with Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life’s Biggest Questions (Dutton, Nov. 2013).
