Blankets (Craig Thompson, 2003) BY: Jeremy Huggins When you pick up the book Blankets youíll immediately notice is the drawing on the cover: Two adolescents stand huddled in the snow, a thick forest as backdrop, and it looks cold: one picture saying 582 pagesí worth of words.

The Decline of the Secular University (C. John Sommerville, 2006) BY: Karl E. Johnson There are those who believe that there is no such thing as "a view from nowhere," that secularism is no less neutral a perspective than other "traditions of inquiry," and that true neutrality consists of equal accommodation of all particular viewpoints, including both the religious and the secular. With the publication of The Decline of the Secular University, C. John Sommerville joins these voices.
It Was Good: Making Art to the Glory of God, revised & expanded (Ed. Ned Bustard, 2006) BY: Denis Haack Engaging this book is like having a chance to hang with a group of thoughtful Christians who care deeply about both art and faith.
Using Words to Wound Instead of Heal BY: Denis Haack Words have the power to hurt, to cause shame, to instill fear, to wound so deeply that being beat up seemed preferable. Itís simply not true that words can never harm you. Some can tear at the fabric of your soul.
A Faithful, Messy Purity BY: Denis Haack There is a difference between keeping ourselves pure, and keeping ourselves aloof from a broken reality. Itís a huge difference. The first is courageous; the second, arrogant.
I love my neighbor as myself but only because I donít 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.
