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.

Pandita Ramabai

My next article in the series "Christians who Changed their World" is up. This set focuses on non-Western Christians and women. Today's article features both: Pandita Ramabai was a remarkable woman who was an acknowledged Hindu scholar, but who was dissatisfied by the attitudes toward women she found within Hinduism. This led her to Christianity. She then became a major promoter of women's rights and women's education in India.
