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.

Chiune Sugihara

This past Saturday, USA Network put on “Schindler’s List” without commercial interruption. My newest article features Chiune Sugihara, a Japanese consular official who has been described as the Japanese Schindler—only Sugihara saved many thousands more than Schindler and was not motivated by exploiting their labor as Schindler had been in the beginning. For me personally, this is one of the most moving stories I have recounted. I hope you enjoy it.
