  • Business on Mission

    I had the privilege of speaking to about 350 businesspeople recently at the Business on Mission conference in Lynchburg, Va. My presentation came from the book I wrote with John Stonestreet, “Restoring All Things,” and the key points of my presentation were as follows:
  • What Comes after the Religious Right?

    I think you all will enjoy this discussion with my friend Brad Littlejohn. He and Pastor Benjamin Miller talk about what the “religious right” got right, and what it got wrong. They focus on how we can move forward as Christians in a post-Christian culture without falling into the opposite error, which Brad calls “neo-anabaptism” (something I wrote a column about recently).

    The key to charting a course between these two extremes is involving the Church as an institution, rather than as merely a gathering of individuals. Christian identity and engagement of society and politics must be rooted in this context. Otherwise, we will either lose ourselves in moral majoritarian thinking, or surrender to an escapist impulse. Great and highly relevant stuff!READ FULL ARTICLE »
  • Facing the History of the Pill

    This article about the sad, sordid history of the birth control pill is utterly fascinating, especially when you consider where it was published -- in VICE, which is anything but socially conservative. Have we come all the way from "Criticizing the Pill is sexist!" to "Not criticizing the Pill is sexist"? If even secular publications are willing to face the truth about how its advocates exploited women, including and especially poor Hispanic women, then maybe we really have. More importantly, maybe we've reached the point where we can have a serious discussion on the topic without mudslinging and blame-shifting.READ FULL ARTICLE »
  • Big 12 Follies

    Yesterday, the Big 12 announced that, contrary to expectations, it would not be expanding from 10 to 12 teams. The reasons for the proposed expansion had little to do with proper nomenclature—after all, the Big Ten has 14 teams—and everything to do with money. Adding two teams would allow the conference to hold a lucrative championship game and also better position itself to have a participant in the four-team college football playoff.

    No official reasons were given for the decision not to expand, but, of course, that didn’t stop people from speculating. While most interest seemed to be on why the University of Houston wasn’t invited, the really interesting speculation centered on why Brigham Young University didn’t make the cut. READ FULL ARTICLE »

  • 'The Wrong Act at the Wrong Time': Stonestreet on Prop 106

    John Stonestreet has a new op-ed in USA Today about Prop 106, the bill that would legalize doctor-assisted suicide in Colorado. John writes:
  • Remaking Lewis

    If you recently saw a political meme beginning, "My dear Wormwood, Be sure that the patient remains completely fixated on politics," then you did not see an actual quotation from "The Screwtape Letters." You saw yet another fake quotation circulated under C. S. Lewis's name. So many of these are now littering the Web that William O'Flaherty, of Essential C. S. Lewis, now has a Web page and a Facebook group devoted to debunking them.

    Lord knows we all get tricked by fake quotations sometimes. It's happened to me, too. But some are inclined to brush off the trickery as unimportant. I disagree. I think it's important to be aware of the trend -- and I think it matters deeply how we respond when we discover the truth.
