Yesterday, I introduced the topic of suffering. Specifically, I raised the age old question, “Why does God allow his children to suffer?” And although I have spent a lot of time looking into the Bible’s answer to this question, in yesterday’s post I explored one of three similes that...
The world is not the way it’s supposed to be. We know it. We’ve always known it. People throughout history have tried to identify exactly what is wrong with the world—lack of information, a few evil people who oppress the innocent, a struggle between the classes, an unfinished evolutionary...
Leonardo Da Vinci was brilliant. And not just in one area. He showed great skill in chemistry, music, architecture, anatomy, engineering, etc. Yet as he explored the world in an effort to find meaning, he realized that meaning would not be discovered through the sciences. You simply cannot begin...
I’m going to begin a series on the relationship between Christians and violence, which, as you might already know, can be a pretty heated discussion.

A couple of weeks ago, I raised this same question regarding music (see the post below), but the same sort of question can be raised with movies. A few years ago, a bunch of us at EBC went out to the movies and saw the Gran Torino with Clint...
Many of our readers are already familiar with The Silo Project. Essentially, we’ve taken material from our college classrooms and are offering it to normal people (i.e., non-scholars, non-theology-nerds) in an attractive, affordable, self-paced format. You can learn about worldview or Old Testament or counseling or whatever at your...
