Ancient Words, Ever True?

  It’s not unusual for people to dismiss the Bible because it was “only written by men.” How do you respond when you hear this What evidence would you give that the Bible is not just a human invention, but rather a supernatural revelation?

Christianity: Fantasy or Reality?

  Once I was sitting on an airplane next to a stockbroker.  He asked me what I did for a living and I told him I was a writer.  When he asked what I wrote about, immediately I faced a problem.  I wanted to tell him that I write about religion, specifically Christianity, but I didn’t want him to make a mistake many people make when they think about those two things.

The Trinity: A Solution, Not a Problem Part 1

  I want to start by asking three questions I hope will alert you to problems I’m willing to bet you’ve never thought about as a Christian. Three Questions, Three Problems Here’s the first question: What is the one thing that everyone who believes in God agrees on about what God is like?  The answer, by common assent, is that God is love.

Redeeming the Time

   “The days drag on, the years fly by,” the saying goes.  So true.  Our time is precious, and the older I get the faster it seems to go.  James says life is like a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.  So much to do; so little time to do it.

Misquoting God Part 2

  Read part 1 I would like to rescue you from a mistake virtually every Christian makes now and then when they go to the Bible that prevents you from knowing what God is saying to you personally in His Word.  You may not thank me, though, because some of what I have to say will probably irritate you.

Misquoting God Part 1

  Verses Commonly Misunderstood, Mischaracterized, or Maligned It doesn’t happen often, but this time I was caught completely flatfooted, struck dumb by a challenge from a young Christian woman in Cairo.

Line in the Sand

  In Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia, four children, poking about in the back of an old wardrobe in the attic, stumble on another world filled with peculiar delights and strange enchantments.  Did you ever tumble by accident into an ancient world?  Something like that happened to me recently.

Where Was God?

The images are sadly familiar. Buildings ripped from their foundations. Corpses mingled with debris. Parents and friends grieving for lost loved ones. Flowers and candles and makeshift memorials. New Orleans, Newtown, New York, Littleton. In one sense tragedies like these will never be old news. And when new disasters inevitably arrive, the question on the lips of so many is an age old query: “Where was God?”   One Wrong Answer

Do You Take the Bible Literally?

  I never like the question, “Do you take the Bible literally?” It comes up with some frequency, and it deserves a response.  But I think it’s an ambiguous—and, therefore, confusing—question, making it awkward to answer. Clearly, even those of us with a high view of Scripture don’t take everything literally. Jesus is the “door,” but He’s not made of wood. We are the “branches,” but we’re not sprouting leaves.
