Objects of Grace (James Romaine, 2002)
C.S. Lewis and the Arts (Rod Miller, Ed., 2013) BY: Denis Haack Square Halo Books, with its emphasis on faith and the arts, has published two books in which the scholarship to which I refer is on thoughtful display.
It Was Good: Making Music to the Glory of God (Ned Bustard, Ed., 2002) BY: Denis Haack Written by musicians, theologians, songwriters and musicologists, this book is a valuable resource for musicians and those of us who cannot live without music.
Notes from the House of the Dead (Fyodor Dostoevsky, 1861) BY: Denis Haack For four years Fyodor Dostoevsky languished in a military labor camp. Listed as “dangerous,” he spent his entire four year imprisonment in iron shackles and was allowed only one book, a New Testament.
World War Z (Marc Forster, 2013) BY: Denis Haack People who are not blind to reality know somehow that evil prowls the dark corners seeking to bring death and devastation into the lives of unsuspecting human beings across the face of God’s good world.
Slipping into politicization BY: Denis Haack It’s impossible not to be effected by our culture. Being discerning doesn’t pretend this doesn’t occur but acknowledges it. And it requires that we examine all beliefs, benefiting us by revealing where we stand in relation to or against them.
I Want to Show You More, Stories (Jamie Quatro,2013) BY: Denis Haack In her debut book of fiction, a collection of short stories, Jamie Quatro has bequeathed a deliciously subversive gift to the world, and to the evangelical church.
Francis Schaeffer: A Mind and Heart for God (Bruce Little, 2010)
Schaeffer on the Christian Life: Countercultural Spirituality (William Edgar, 2013) BY: Denis Haack For those who want an introduction to Schaeffer—the man, his life, his impact and his thinking—there are two books, both brief and accessible, that I would recommend.
Taking the Long View in a Life of Hospitality BY: Andi Ashworth Even if you possess gifts, skills, and insights that have grown with experience, the satisfaction of caring for people in meaningful ways can turn to burn out, especially when the care overshadows other callings or is lived without boundaries or breaks.
Faithfulness in a Consumerist Society BY: Denis Haack Whether we realize it or not, consumerism touches on issues of character, inspires personal feelings of significance and meaning, and helps shape our understanding of human flourishing.
I love my neighbor as myself but only because I don’t much care for myself.

This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.
Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
