I am going to (unwisely) analyze something that will probably make a lot of people upset. Last night, my wife and I watched Jill Duggar’s wedding on TLC. It was great. The Duggars are great. Honestly, how can you not love this gigantic family that clearly loves the Lord...
We run into problems when we try to define Christian music as either “music made by Christians” or “music with Christian subject matter.” Perhaps a third definition will give us better results. Maybe Christian music is music directed at Christian audiences. This one sounds a bit more plausible. After all,...
Amongst other things, the days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve are for spending time with family watching TV shows you don’t care about. While channel surfing with my in-laws last night, we struck gold. We happened upon a show called Extreme Cheapskates. It’s unbelievable. Basically, the show features people...
If that title got you interested, you’re either under six years of age (in which case you probably can’t read) or you’re a young parent. If you don’t fit either description and are reading anyhow, keep going! There are spiritual lessons to be gleaned from unlikely sources. My oldest daughter...
This year’s Grammy Awards (the 56th) has caused quite a stir. On some level, the Grammys are always a big deal. It’s got to be one of the most viewed, most diverse, most star-studded concerts every year. The event inherently celebrates God’s gift of music, and that aspect of...
Before Thanksgiving, my wife and I watched The Perks of Being a Wallflower. As I’ve been looking at the movie lineup this Christmas season, I’m realizing that The Perks of Being a Wallflower is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. Not everyone will agree. Viewers...
Today Resonate releases. If you’ve missed my almost subtle promotion of the book this month, the book is entitled Resonate: Enjoying God’s Gift of Music, and it’s essentially a theological look at and a appreciative exploration of music: what it is, what it does, how it works, what the...
This post is a response to one of the suggestions we’ve received on the blog. Here’s the question: “How does a Christian respond to the popular YOLO (you only live once) philosophy? Do you only live once? How many times do you live, if not? One? Three? I've heard some...
  I got serious about my faith when I entered college, and one fruit of this increased commitment was that I found myself turning into a reader. This newfound passion for reading would end up costing me way more money and time than I could have imagined (and at this...
“Christians should thank God for J. K. Rowling and for her clear presentation of the central values that are at the core of Christian faith and practice.” That’s not my statement, though as I’ll explain I agree with it enthusiastically. That statement comes from Jerram Barrs, in his excellent book...
