- The Invisible Anglicanism of CS Lewis: If you spend any length of time interacting with contemporary writing about CS Lewis, you’ll discover one thing almost instantly: Lewis has become a theological Rorshach test for his readers. – See more at. (Mere Orthodoxy)
- Finding a Place to Ask the Tough Questions: I think that the faith of my childhood, that faith that was neatly encapsulated in a two-sentence sinner’s prayer prayed at an exact time and place that instantaneously and transactionally changed me into someone who never has doubts again, has not held true in my own experience. On this journey of looking for God I’ve experienced instead: tentative hope, dark doubt, bright epiphanies, and even some days when I don’t know if I believe in God anymore. (Amy Butler)
- One of the Most Significant Days in Church History: Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday: without the birth of Muhammad there would be no Islam. And, at this point in history, Islam represents one of the most significant religious challenges to the claims of Christianity.

- Read the Bible Like a Texan, Y’all: We might not like it or understand it, but apparently the Church is God’s plan to mediate his power and presence to the world. Frankly, it’s remarkable that Paul is so confident about this truth as he writes specifically to the Corinthian church. The church in Corinth was “Church-Gone-Wild XXX” – they were immersed in factions, debauchery, and sexual immorality. Yet, warts and all, their community was where God had chosen to dwell in a powerful and immediate way. (Cataclysmic)
