Os GuinnessIf you’re not familiar with Os Guinness, he is an author and social critic who lives in the Washington DC area. He’s written or edited more than 25 books and is a frequent speaker and seminar leader at political and business conferences in both the United States and Europe. When Os and I were both speaking at the C. S. Lewis conference in Oxford in July, Nanci and I had a delightful dinner with him and his wife Jenny.

Not Cool: Obama's Pro-abortion Stance, and Christians enabling him

ObamaA year and a half ago, when I first heard about Barack Obama, I got excited. I really wanted to support him. An evangelical Christian told me Obama was prolife. I didn’t care that Obama was a Democrat. I wanted a pro-life, pro-environment, pro-racial equality president who took seriously our need to care for the poor and defend the needy.

Granted, I also wanted someone who wasn’t a New Age anti-industry activist with a “Meat is Murder” bumper sticker. I wanted someone who is committed to national defense, but knows when not to go on offense. I wanted ...

Nourishment for the Soul

Ken and Joni TadaJoni Eareckson Tada announced this week that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. (Read her blog post, written in her typically Christ-centered way.) 

Over the years Joni has become a dear friend to Nanci and me, and we also deeply appreciate her husband Ken. I interviewed Joni and quote from her often in If God is Good, and she is one of the people I dedicated the book to. (She is the founder and CEO of Joni and Friends, a wonderful ministry to the disabled. Check them out at www.joniandfriends.org. JAF is a ministry worthy of support, an investment in eternity.)

Nathan loved baseball. He watched it on TV...went to games...read books about it...collected baseball cards. And he talked and dreamed with his grandfather about running the bases. Gramps always told him, "I'm pretty sure our best baseball is still ahead of us." Nathan loved ...

Now, THAT’S what I call a Kingdom-Impacting App!

Jesus Film MediaRecently I met with my long time friend and former director of The Jesus Film Project, Jim Green. He suggested I download the new Jesus Film app on my smartphone. I did and when he showed me what it offers, in over 1,100 languages, I was astounded.

 

“O My Soul”: Engaging in Biblical Self-Talk

PsalmsEvery time the psalmists used the phrase, “O my soul,” they were engaging in self-talk. We all talk to ourselves. Whether or not this is a good practice depends largely on what we are saying, and whether it is true and helpful.

 

Oak Hills Church and Texas Trip

Randy Alcorn at Oak Hills ChurchNanci and I had a wonderful time last weekend with the people of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio. What a wonderful church family, with great Christ-centered worship. I spoke to them about “Heaven: Where God Will Bring Good out of Bad”, drawing most of the message from Romans 8, and focusing on verse 28, “In all things God works for the good of those who love Him,” or “All things work together for good to those who love God.”
