The Evil That Haunts Us

The Wall Street Journal recently commemorated the 50 year anniversary of the Alexander Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago: An Experiment  in Literary Investigation, calling it "arguably the 20th century's greatest piece of nonfiction prose." Solzhenitsyn wrote it from over hundreds of interviews of fellow prisoners. He dedicated the work to those who didn't live to tell their stories. In it, Solzhenitsyn writes…...

The Trouble With “X”

It is true that we are far too stingy when it comes to doling out grace to others and far too generous in serving ourselves. That's because our faults are understandable.

Idol Thoughts On Investing in Others

There have only been a few new shows April and I have really enjoyed throughout our marriage.

C.S. Lewis on Mixing Faith & Politics

Lewis knew a thing or two about love for God and country. He served in the first World War. He was an atheist then too, but that doesn't mean he changed his view of service, or, even warfare after he become a Christian.
