One of my former Asbury Seminary students, who is a violinist, came up to me in church this morning so excited.  She had met the master  (no not that Jewish Master, another Jewish master— musician) and gotten his autograph. She was simply bubbling over with joy.   I must admit I was as well after seeing him perform from the third row last Saturday night in Singletary auditorium in Lexington. The story of Itzak Perlman is a moving one.  Born in… Read more

Moyer V. Hubbard,  Christianity in the Greco-Roman World. A Narrative Introduction, (Baker, 2010), 344 pages,  $24.99. There are books which are coal mines, all you get out of them is stuff that quickly burns up— lots of heat, not much light, and too much blown smoke.   And you end up with soot on your hands.   Then there are books that are like tin mines— yes, they are useful, but its not the most precious metal and frankly its too… Read more

 Greg Bandy from Asbury University called me, and asked me to join a preview of this movie over a week ago.  Unfortunately I was on a plane to New Orleans when it was being shown.  There were no divine adjustments in my schedule permitting me to see it then.   And that brings us to our movie, which is well worth the time and money to see.   Is it about predestination?  Well,  not exactly, though it has been billed that way.  … Read more

I have seen some strange movies in my time.  You have to understand I grew up watching the Twilight Zone, so I know strange when I see it—– and Rango is got to be the strangest animated film posing as a children’s movie I have ever seen.  It is cast as a Western, albeit a Western set in modernity, so there is a tiny 19th century style town called Dirt, and the Mayor has a plot and a plan to buy… Read more

There is an interesting article in the Huffington Post by Phil Zuckerman and others about a recent Pew  Survey of the social and political views of Evangelicals compared to the teachings of  Jesus (including the Sermon on the Mount).    Here is the intro paragraph….. “The results from a recent poll published by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life (http://www.pewforum.org/Politics-and-Elections/Tea-Party-and-Religion.aspx) reveal what social scientists have known for a long time: White Evangelical Christians are the group least likely to… Read more

Here is an article sent to me by Mark Rodgers of the Clapham Group.  See what you think.

Here we are at the entrance to the Snug Harbor Jazz club.  You will notice I have had too much good cajun and creole and French food this past week. You will also notice that the concert is sold out….. and I’m on the front row 🙂    Yeah. You will also notice from the picture immediately here to the left just how tiny the venue is.  If it holds even 100 people I’d be entirely surprised.  Note as well the… Read more
