Welcome!

This blog grows out of my conviction that every aspect of our lives is sacred and is to be nurtured and celebrated as a good gift of God. Most of the posts will be the sorts of things you would expect from a historian and worldview teacher, but some are likely to be a bit surprising. Since God created all things good, including all aspects of human life, everything is interesting and important from the perspective of a biblical worldview. Everything under the Sun and under Heaven is thus fair game here. I hope you find it interesting and enjoyable.

True Reason

In response to the new atheists' Reason Rally, to be held on March 24 on the Washington Mall, Tom Gilson over at Breakpoint asked me to contribute chapter to a book tentatively titled "Reason, Really?" After batting around a few possible topics, we settled on Christianity and slavery. Other chapters were contributed by William Lane Craig, Sean McDowell, Chuck Edwards, John DePoe, Peter Grice, Matthew Flannagan, Randy Hardman, David Marshall, Carson Weitnauer, and David Wood. In what probably counts as the greatest miracle since the Resurrection, the book was completed in less than two months.

The book, which has been retitled "True Reason," has been released as an e-book published by Patheos Press. You can order the book for all the major e-readers through this link. If there's enough interest, Patheos may put out a print edition as well.
