Most of us have answered a knock on our door, only to discover a smiling, well-dressed couple—Watchtower publication in hand—standing on the other side, waiting to talk with us about the gospel according to the Jehovah’s Witnesses.

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.

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.

Naturalism: Bumping into Reality

  Lately I’ve been enjoying my nine-year-old Annabeth’s theological common sense.  “Papa, why don’t atheists believe in God?” she asked. “Well, for a number of reasons,” I said.  “Partly because they can’t see Him, so they don’t believe in Him.” “Can they see atoms?” she offered. “Good point. But I think they’d say that doesn’t count since they can still detect atoms with scientific instruments, something they can’t do with God.  They won’t believe in anything they can’t measure scientifically.”
