In the country where the preaching of John Knox once made monarchs tremble, there is now a majority of the population that confesses no religious faith. Soon the nation that sent missionaries around the world will be in need of missionaries … Continue reading The Sad State of Scotland
I can't remember the first time I heard Merle Haggard; it was unquestionably at a very young age, as the Hag was one of my grandfather's favorite artists (along with Hank Williams, Sr. and Johnny Cash). Haggard was one of those old-time country singers and songwriters that didn't have to look far for the inspiration … Continue reading Death of an Icon

Thus far, I'm two and a half pages into a review of In Defense of Plural Marriage by Ronald C. Den Otter, and I'm more convinced now than I was when I purchased it that Den Otter's book might be the most important overlooked volume of the past year. My fellow believers, you need to be aware … Continue reading Update
