I discovered John Mark McMillan a couple of years ago and I have been thoroughly impressed ever since. He is a Christian artist who is not like most Christian artists. To be honest, I am not impressed with a lot of Christian music. I think much of it is shallow and not good musically. John […]

Syria Brian Zahnd has written a wonderful monologue on the situation in Syria. It is brief but to the point. It presents ways of responding in a Christian way to many of the questions and points that are being raised. How does a Christian respond to this business about a red line being crossed? Zahnd […]
