Rent (Chris Columbus, 2005) spacer Rent (Chris Columbus, 2005)
BY: Denis Haack
It is generally assumed that Gen-Xers are relativistic, and that Rent simply celebrates an easy-going relativism in lifestyle and sexuality. But the characters depicted in Rent, like the Gen-Xers they represent, hold strong moral notions.

Whale Rider (Niki Caro, 2002) spacer Whale Rider (Niki Caro, 2002)
BY: Denis Haack
One of the delights of Whale Rider is the eleven-year old Keisha Castle-Hughes, who plays Pai in her first role as an actress. It is a remarkable performance. This low-budget film is both charming and revealing.

Understanding the Bible (John Stott; 1972, 1984, 2001) spacer Understanding the Bible (John Stott; 1972, 1984, 2001)
BY: Denis Haack
Scripture molds our mind and imagination, we grow in discernment, the ability to chart a path through the myriad choices presented to us in our post-Christian pluralistic world.

Virtual Faith: The Irreverent Spiritual Quest of Generation X (Tom Beaudoin, 1998) spacer Virtual Faith: The Irreverent Spiritual Quest of Generation X (Tom Beaudoin, 1998)
BY: Denis Haack
This is a book about impropriety and irreverence, beginning with my fundamental claim that Generation X is—despite and even because of appearances—strikingly religious.

A Visit to Vanity Fair: Moral Essays on the Present Age (Alan Jacobs , 2001) spacer A Visit to Vanity Fair: Moral Essays on the Present Age (Alan Jacobs , 2001)
BY: Denis Haack
The essays in A Visit to Vanity Fair can be read in any order, and none are so long that even in the press of busyness we shouldn’t be able to carve out the time.

Welfare in America: Christian Perspectives on a Policy in Crisis (Carlson-Thies/Skillen, 1996) spacer Welfare in America: Christian Perspectives on a Policy in Crisis (Carlson-Thies/Skillen, 1996)
BY: Denis Haack
“Welfare in America,” James Skillen writes, “argues that assistance to the needy does not, and should not, come primarily from government. Government, whether at federal or state levels, should help hold people accountable to their various institutional and personal responsibilities rather than fill in for every failure.”

What I Think I Did: A Season of Survival in Two Acts (Larry Woiwode, 2000) spacer What I Think I Did: A Season of Survival in Two Acts (Larry Woiwode, 2000)
BY: Denis Haack

spacer 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.
