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.

Andre and Magda Trocme and the Village of Le-Chambon-sur-Lignon

The latest article in the series Christians who Changed their World is about a village in France during World War II. Led by its Huguenot pastor and his wife, this village and the surrounding area saved the lives of a number of Jews equal to their own population by hiding them from the Nazis and their Vichy collaborators and in some cases smuggling them to Switzerland. It's a great story, and if you haven't heard it yet, you'll want to read the article.
