Antidepressant Medication: A Christian Psychologist’s View by Mike Benoit

For one last post on the issue of Christians and Antidepressants, I’ve asked former BHT fellow Mike Benoit to share his perspective from within the discipline of psychology. Mike Benoit is finishing a Ph.D. dissertation in Counseling Psychology and looking for an academic position somewhere. His new venture is a podcast called Giving Psychology Away […]

What About Antidepressant Medication?

I’ve been asked to give my view on the use of antidepressant medication, and I assume especially as it relates to the Christian community. I’ve written about growing up with my dad’s severe depression, and I’ve written an entire series on “The Christian and Mental Illness.” I’m currently reading “Darkness is My Only Companion” and […]

Because there is such abuse and misuse in this area, it’s very easy to create a […]

iMonk 101: Our Problem With Grace

One of my all time favorite Internet Monk essays is this one: “Our Problem with Grace.” If you know my admiration for the writing of Robert Capon, you’ll recognize his influence on this piece. I’m convinced that grace is one of the most difficult concepts for Christians to live with and live by. But if […]

Simply or Merely? Comparing Mere Christianity and Simply Christian

Upon finishing N.T. Wright’s Simply Christian, I found myself comparing it to the classic C.S. Lewis book, Mere Christianity. Wright, the publishers and many readers have invited the comparisons as well. I’ve read Mere Christianity many times with my Advanced Bible students. I’m impressed with the durability of Mere Christianity. The chapters were originally delivered […]

Don’t Waste Your Missional Calling

These Lives and Deaths Were No Tragedy In April 2000, Ruby Eliason and Laura Edwards were killed in Cameroon, West Africa. Ruby was over eighty. Single all her life, she poured it out for one great thing: to make Jesus Christ known among the unreached, the poor, and the sick. Laura was a widow, a […]
