The Reformation led to a full embrace of the radical political implications of a humanity created in the image of God.
When I was a child, I read only baseball box scores. More recently, when Marilynne Robinson has a new book I immediately order it.
My files are full of stewardship sermons. So it came as a shock when people would say, “We know you don’t like to talk about money.”
Whenever I preached a dense sermon or used too many references, a missionary friend would gently remind me to proclaim the gospel simply.
The Peaceable Kingdom pricks my conscience every time I see it because of the enormous gap between its vision and the world's reality.
