Communicating for Life: Christian Stewardship in Community and Media (Quentin Schultze, 2000) BY: Denis Haack When we sit down with brothers or sisters with different callings than our own we sharpen our discernment with their questions, and they can profit from what we’ve learned and tried.
Complete in Christ: Rediscovering Jesus and Ourselves (Nigel Cameron, 1989) BY: Denis Haack It is easy, in our desire to honor Christ as God, to so emphasize his divinity that we lose sight with the equally important truth that he is fully human.
Cutting-Edge Bioethics: A Christian Exploration of Technologies and Trends (Edited by Kilner, Hook, and Uustal, 2002) BY: Denis Haack Medical technology is aggressively expanding in ways that only a few years ago were imaginable only as science fiction.
Doing Theology for the People of God: Studies in Honor of J. I. Packer (Edited by Donald Lewis and Alister McGrath, 1996) BY: Denis Haack 1996 was the year in which J.I. Packer retired from full-time teaching as Sangwoo Youtong Chee Professor of Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, B.C. — though not from active ministry among the people of God.
Doing Well and Doing Good: Money, Giving, and Caring in a Free Society (Os Guiness, 2001) BY: Denis Haack Creative and stimulating, the Trinity Series study guides are designed “to help thoughtful people examine the foundational issues through which faith acts upon the public good of modern society.”
Cocoa Crispies Christianity BY: Michael Metzger When told that nature reveals the glory of God, Woody Allen replied that he only saw a giant restaurant. Fair enough. If someone can’t see God in the grandeur, try the granular. Rather than scraping the heavens, suggest that God can be found in a bowl of Cocoa Krispies.
Missions in a Risk-Averse Age BY: Denis Haack At times I've wondered whether the advent of bike-safety helmets for children will mark the beginning of the end of the modern missionary movement. Don't misunderstand, this is not to suggest that a concern for children’s safety is misplaced. Rather, I want us to reflect carefully on whether missions, especially in high-risk situations, can remain robust in an age as risk-averse as ours.
Where Have I Heard That Before? World Rhythms in Cinema BY: Matthew Hundley You may not be up on the latest world music, but chances are you’ve heard a wide selection of global grooves in an unlikely place…the cinema. With the increased emphasis on global issues in movies like Children of Men, City of God, and The Constant Gardener world rhythms play an increasing role in establishing global context in a film.
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.
