A Look Back At My 2016 Article, “Republicans Can’t Be Christians — Sorry!”

President Donald Trump with one of his most ardent evangelical supporters, the sellout Franklin Graham [I published this earlier today on Medium. It's literally the same thing, but better proofed and edited, so it's perhaps 1% better if grammatical mistakes just kill you like they do some. If that's the case, you may wish to …

Book Review: Bart Ehrman’s Did Jesus Exist?: The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazareth

Well, unfortunately I'm rather livid at the moment because even though I had written I do not have the time or energy for a proper review due to severely bad health and a late time of night, I had just spent 1.5 hours working on the BEGINNING of a review, presumably saving as I went …

A Review of The Underground Church

The Underground Church: Reclaiming the Subversive Way of Jesus by Robin Meyers My rating: 5 of 5 stars I really liked this book even though its idealistic vision is so utopian that its recommendations can surely never be acted upon by most Christians. It's a heartfelt book with a vision -- one of love and …
