Open Thread: The De-Churching of America: What do YOU Think?

I’m reading some books on the de-churching of America, i.e. the drop in church attendance over the last 50 years. Research being what it is, I know that anything can be proven, but I have my own research tool: the IM readership. Without going into great detail, what have you seen in your own extended […]

Fr. Ernesto Obregon: An Orthodox View of the Issues In Sola Fide

UPDATE: A great way to learn more about Orthodoxy is the amazing selection of podcasts at Ancient Faith Radio. There are 4 pages of podcasts! I have always enjoyed Fr. Reardon. Perhaps some commenters can share their favorite. One of the frequent commenters here at Internet Monk recently is Father Ernesto Obregon, an Orthodox priest. […]

Riffs: 11:13:08: My Response to Scot McKnight and “What Evangelicals Do Well.”

First, read Scot McKnight’s BeliefNet piece, “What Do Evangelicals Do Well?” I’m not Scot McKnight, and I don’t play him on TV. I’m nowhere in his league on New Testament scholarship and he’s got far more world-wide experience than me in describing evangelicals. He’s written lots of great books and has a classy blog. So […]

Sola Fide? Yeah, Whatever.

UPDATE: 11:13:08 Open commenting is now over, and moderated commenting will be the norm for the foreseeable future. Expect ACTIVE moderation. Several years ago I wrote an essay on sola fide- salvation by faith alone- that I really liked, but no one else seemed to like. At the time, when I was just starting to […]

What Just Can’t Be, But Is

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy […]

Interviews, Interviews, Interviews

I’m getting interviewed all over the place. Must be a very slow time of year. I’m interviewed in the current issue of Modern Reformation magazine’s issue on “Evangelicalism’s Winter.” I’m really proud of this interview. It answers a lot of questions about post-evangelicalism. Special thanks to Eric Landry at MR to be in the same […]

Alone, and Not Alone: Meditations From the Evangelical Wilderness

We talk about the evangelical wilderness around here a lot. It’s sometimes academic, and sometimes it’s very personal to all of us. These are some of my thoughts from there today. If God has taught me anything, it’s that you (yes YOU) are out there, and I’m not the only one. This post is for […]

Riffs: The Creation Museum in Kentucky, reviewed in the New Yorker (June 2007)

Since we’ve been discussing Adam and Eve, I thought this article on the Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky would be a good follow-up. The picture is the Adam and Eve display in the museum, which is a multi-million dollar facility with state of the art exhibits. It is sponsored by the Answers in Genesis ministry […]
