Steering Through Chaos: Vice and Virtue in an Age of Moral Confusion (Os Guinness, 2000) BY: Denis Haack The Series explores the issues of our day in the context of faith and presents the perspective of faith in the context of the sweep of Western civilization.
When No One Sees: The Importance of Character in an Age of Image (Os Guinness, 2000) BY: Denis Haack This book represents a way of thinking and living which is discerning and challenging rather than merely reactionary and comfortable.

Someone to Watch Over Me (Richard Bausch, 2004) BY: Marsena Konkle It might seem that such a short story would be incapable of exploring real issues with any depth. Easily read, easily forgotten, right? But such is not the case with “Someone to Watch Over Me”
If I Die in a Combat Zone... (Tim O'Brien, 1975) BY: Marsena Konkle Like many men who have experienced the trauma of combat, Tim O'Brien has spent his years since Vietnam haunted by memories and nightmares.

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.
