Thirty-Two Rooms and No Way Out: Adventures in Bookstore Claustrophobia

This post is an odd soup. Call it one part “Second Half of Life,” for just getting old and pathetic; one part “In The Study,” for the sermon idea I’ll get out of it; and one part “Parable, Metaphor and Illustration” for what you can do with it. Laugh at me, with me, and then […]

True Confessions of an Egg Nog Addict

Having arrived at age 50, I am striving for a degree of self-knowledge that might be called true wisdom. Yes, there is much to be learned from books and teachers, but I believe that the Greeks were right: a man who does not know himself, no matter what else he knows, is woefully ignorant. The […]

Life At Our House: The Christmas Tree Caper

Denise blogs about life at our house, where the family takes my mental quirks and creates smiles and laughter for, you, the IM reader. If you would like to buy working Christmas lights for a poor family, just contact me at christmaslights@imonk.com. READ: Decking the Halls…Spencer Style

The Man Behind the Curtain: Lesslie Newbigin (SATIRE!)

BHT fellow and soon to be philosophy professor Joel Hunter penned this stinging piece of satire (that’s SATIRE) about the man who really needs to be held responsible for all these postmodern, missional, contemplative woes. It’s missionary statesman and missional thinker Lesslie Newbigin. Read and be shocked. (SATIRE AHEAD.) While we’re measuring one another for […]

Review: Pocket Guide To The Bible by Jason Boyett

UPDATE: Jason is guestblogging at the BHT June 12-16. My White Castles have yet to arrive. A few years ago our family encountered The Reduced Shakespeare Company’s “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged,” a two hour stage production that took my beloved Bard, mixed him with three manic, irreverent comedians, and produced the most […]

Book Review: Common Grounds by Ben Young and Glenn Lucke

[I want to thank Glenn Lucke and Broadman & Holman Publishers for providing me with a review copy of Common Grounds. Visit their blog at Common Grounds Online.] Who would have thought that one of the most loved or loathed words in evangelicalism would turn out to be “conversation?” Conversation is among the most popular […]

Can I Have My Bible Back?

Joel Hunter wrote this absolutely outstanding piece about the Bible and propositional, positivist versions of truth. I believe IM readers will resonate with much of what he is saying, and it’s said well. The post was prompted by this post from Dr. Lawson Stone on “Hindenberg Theology,” (continued here), and is indebted to Calvin Seerveld’s […]
