Should Christians Write Dystopians?

Disclaimer: All I have to say is NOT because of any specific book in particular. I have been thinking of this for a long time and meaning to say it. This is in no way pointing out a specific book or author. It’s my own musings and convictions and NOT meant as an insult, holier-than-thou,Continue reading “Should Christians Write Dystopians?”

It’s Not Better in Egypt

It’s noon, in the desert. Heat ripples off the endless sand. There is no life to be seen, except perhaps a single solitary insect. And you’re standing at the door of your tent, tired of eating bread. Not a very enviable position, is it? It’s easy to understand why you would start crying, “Who shallContinue reading “It’s Not Better in Egypt”

5 Reasons to Read Classics

If you know me at all, you know that I’m a voracious reader who downs between 400–700+ books a year, depending on circumstances. The greater portion of those are what I call classics, and which for the purpose of this post I will define as books written pre-1980.  Classics are my bread and butter. My go-to.

Hello, 2023, the Year of Restoration

It’s been 2023 for 11 days. I haven’t been charmed, to be honest. We’ve have wave after wave of troubles and bad news. I’ve been utterly swamped and stressed. But yesterday in my devotions I read, “Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof,” and I’m hoping it’s true for 2023 too. I completelyContinue reading “Hello, 2023, the Year of Restoration”
