Recommendation and Review: Pierced For Our Transgressions by Steve Jeffery, Michael Ovey and Andrew Sach

This is the season of “Best of” lists, and I’m sure Pierced For Our Transgressions by Steve Jeffery, Michael Ovey and Andrew Sach will be on more than a few lists. In the past year, Pierced For Our Transgressions may be the best-reviewed, highest recommended book in the Reformed blogosphere. It was also one of […]

Riffs: 12:20:07: Religion Reporters Do Love Their Christmas Legends

UPDATE: Check out what Williams really said when he used the word “legend.” Talk about a hit piece. Sad. Here’s the Transcript. Check out the deliberate misquoting. UPDATE II: Here’s Williams just a few days ago when asked if he believed in the virgin birth. Yes; I believe that the conception of Jesus was a […]

An Advent/Christmas devotion and greetings.

Review: Thank God For Evolution! by Michael Dowd

UPDATE: Rev. Dowd has graciously joined the comment thread. Thank God For Evolution! is available as a free pdf download.

There are people (a great many of them) who are slowly ceasing to be Christians but who still call themselves by that name; some […]

No Big Thing

The Mood of Advent: We All Need A Savior

Update: This piece isn’t universally appreciated 🙂 Remember that Advent isn’t the season of Joy. It’s the season of waiting. I have several friends who are doing Advent in their Baptist churches for the first time, and they have lots of questions about candles and logistics. I wish there were more questions about Advent itself. […]

Coffee Cup Apologetics 30

Podcast 30 Should we do apologetics with people who really, really dislike Christianity? (There’s some empty space on the end of this one. My apologies. I don’t want to redo the whole podcast over 4 minutes.) The podcast website is Coffee Cup Apologetics. All the episodes of Coffee Cup Apologetics are now on iTunes. Go […]
