  • Why Believe Anything at all about JESUS?

    And how choosing obfuscation leads to absurdity and not-so-pop nihilism.

  • Beginning with the End in View?

    Eschatology and worldview, how the popular avoidance of a sane approach to the ‘last things’ fouls us and robs us of vivid high-definition clarity.

  • Ending up with the Beginnings in View?

    How marginalizing origins wreaks havoc, and understanding brings shalom.
