I have learned that whenever C. S. Lewis weighs in on a subject, I’d better pay attention. He’s not always right, of course, but he is always wise and thought provoking. This is true of everything that Lewis wrote on anything. But when it comes to Lewis writing about...
In honor of the launch of our Fall semester, I’m going to explore an interesting phenomenon: plagiarism. Few will be surprised to learn the truth. Christian students plagiarize, whether they attend public or private colleges, secular or Christian universities. I find the psychology behind the urge to cheat fascinating, but...
A. W. Tozer famously said, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” John Frame widens that thought to extend to literally everything: “The most important fact about anything in the world is its relationship to God's lordship.” Frame intends...
I get asked quite often how much money one should spend on building a personal library, and about what sort of books should be in that library. My answer usually directs them to some good reference tools, such as commentaries and Bible dictionaries, or other resources that they will...
Rarely is training glamorous; rarely is it exciting. Training is usually incredibly difficult and labor intensive. Seasons of training are hardly desirable but almost always necessary. The most compelling part of robust training is often seeing what is being produced. Here is an example of what is being produced from Eternity Bible College. Lucas Everett is...
What makes a good reader? With C. S. Lewis’ help, we have already exposed “the unliterary,” “the status seeker,” and “the devotee of culture” as poor readers. But what makes a good reader? Lewis explains that a good reader has a much different experience with a book than a poor...

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...
Yesterday we looked at two of Lewis’ categories of poor readers: the unliterary (a broad category of those who merely use books to get at ideas) and the status seeker (who reads so he can talk about—or boast about, really—what he’s read). But Lewis’ list gets more interesting. And...
First a qualification. For most people, learning Hebrew and Greek is not easy. But Eternity Bible College is now offering a unique approach to teaching these biblical languages that will make the learning process much easier—relatively speaking—for most people.   A Case for Learning the Languages Let me be clear. I don’t...
