Quick update: Very soon I will be posting an interview I did with the foremost expert on the subject of angels — yea, those mysterious creatures that Scripture speaks about. The interview is FASCINATING and you don’t want to miss it. So keep an eye out. That said, here’s an article written by Nathan Ovitt that will  help you consume more books. — If I put a bumper sticker on my car, it would probably read “So many books, so… Read more

The age-old question that has tormented philosophers and theologians for centuries is resurfacing again . . . with new vigor. This time it’s emerging in the wake of the horrors of a mass murder of small children in Newtown, Connecticut. Regrettably, atrocities like this have been going on in our world since the Fall.

Recently, I was asked to refer people to any female Christian authors who are known for writing on (and speaking on) the deeper Christian life. Those who are familiar with my work know that this is the genre in which I write and speak.

Soon, we’ll turn our heads and Christmas will be upon us. That said, The Nativity Story (DVD) is well worth watching. While it doesn’t match the Gospel story perfectly, overall, it’s pretty close. The acting is great as well. I also appreciate how they depict Joseph. As with movies of this sort, I lost half my body weight weeping through it. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should. Now on to Christmas songs. My all-time favorite Christmas song, hands down, is this… Read more
