It is becoming increasingly common for Christians to look at the secular world around them and interpret it in theological terms. In fact, it’s something we like posting about from time to time (see the links below). But is that a valid approach? Shouldn’t it feel artificial to look at...
I’m writing this post from downtown San Francisco, where I just finished attending the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) conference.
