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.

In honor of Black History Month ...

I've published two new articles in the series, Christians who Changed their World. The first is Josephine Margaret Bakhita, a woman enslaved as a girl in Sudan who eventually found freedom in a convent, and Frederick Douglass, another former slave who became one of America's greatest public intellectuals. Douglass appears on lists of prominent atheists, but if you actually take the time to look at his career and read his own works, his Christian commitments come through loud and clear.
