Repenting of The Wrong Kind of “Male Leadership”

Here’s the answer to the trivia question “What is the closest the iMonk came to becoming a Muslim?” In October of 1995, Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan sponsored what was called the “Million Man March” on the mall in Washington, D.C. While probably less than half a million men attended, the march was […]

Interview: Scot Mcknight on Evangelicals and Marian Dogmas

UPDATE: I have gotten more mail on this than any recent piece. I just can’t individually answer these letters. So sorry. I need an assistant. The reason Scot Mcknight is such an amazing gift to the church is that he is humble enough to make his formidable skills as a New Testament scholar available to […]

Coffee Cup Apologetics 6: The Cross and Evil

Finishing with the question of believing in God despite the reality of evil. My focus is the cross. Plus, a recommendation of an Alister McGrath interview. The Alister McGrath Interview. Coffee Cup Apologetics now has its own website: ccapologetics.wordpress.com

“Thank You, and I Am Not A Christian.”

Several weeks ago, I removed all specific references to where I work from this web site. Without violating that, I want to tell you a story from yesterday, when our high school had its 104th graduation ceremony. For the past 30+ years, our school has taken many internationals and children of internationals as students. A […]

Recommendation and Review: For Men Only by Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn

Several months ago, my wife asked me to read For Women Only by Shaunti Feldhahn. It’s a book about the inner lives of men, a subject about which I figured I knew really well and no chick could educate me. I didn’t read it. A few weeks ago, she purchased the companion volume, For Men […]

Internet Monk Radio Podcast #59

Why the post “On Going Back to an SBC Church” touched such a nerve. On Going Back To An SBC Church. Read it if you haven’t, and especially the comments. IM Radio is on iTunes. Search for Monk and ignore the other guy.

iMonk 101: The Prodigal Project

Since the post on “Dangerous Grace” is appreciated, here’s another Biblical study from my Men’s Group: The Prodigal Project. I’m sure you know the story, but have you taken a fresh look at it lately? The key to a lot of happiness in my life is in this story. The reason for a lot of […]

Grace Is As Dangerous As Ever

The last few weeks of my men’s morning Bible study has been about “Texts That Will Get You In Trouble,” and we spent two sessions on John 8, and Jesus’ words to the woman caught in adultery: “Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more.” Read Leviticus 20:10 and the other older testament […]

New IM Banner: Thanks to Michael Buckley

Artist Michael Buckley is a long-time IM/BHT reader and he has created a wonderful artistic representation of post-evangelicalism just for the IM banner. It’s meaningful, true and beautiful. The large version is available here for you to enjoy. Thank you, Michael. You are a great friend to me and to the IM community.

Riffs: 05:12:07: John Dennis on the Life He Didn’t Live…Because He Lived the “Christian” Life

This post is really going to annoy a lot of you, but I want to remind you that this web site is about provocative thinking and writing to get you vitally connected to Jesus. Sometimes, the only way to HEAR something, to really HEAR IT, is to hear it in a way that offends you, […]
