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.

Discovery Bible Study and Lectio Divina

This pair of articles from the Worldview Journal (here and here) are my first foray into a larger project dealing with developing a more systematic approach to discipleship. Discovery Bible Study is a relatively new approach to Scripture which focuses on obedience; Lectio Divina is a very ancient approach that involves internalizing Scripture to shape our inner lives and our hearts. Together, they are a powerful combination that helps us both to become what God calls us to be and to do what he tells us to do. The basic instructions for both approaches are in the articles; try them out and if you feel inspired, let me know how they work for you.
