RTHODOX DRAGONS, who would have thought? I have a number of dragon books I’ve self-published for my kids that are inspired by doctrinal statements. It all started with James, a dragon who lives in the drain in the Josephus Bowl at Southern Seminary. I’m joined today by Micah for whom this story was written (and for his twin brother Isaiah). You can check out the digital flip book here.
OLEY Moley was a rolly polly. Josiah the Gentle Giant loved to play with him. But some times, the Gentle Giant would squeeze the rolly pollies just a little too much. And they would squish. The following video is a reading of the story I made for Josiah’s birthday in 2013. Here’s a digital flip book version if you want to read it online. Thanks for letting me share!
HE Night the Wild Things Came Out to Play is of course inspired byMaurice Sendak’s classic children’s story “Where the Wild Things Are.” The following video is a reading of the story I made for our twins retelling how April and I used to go to their room, sometimes even wake them up, and have epic stuffed animal fights. Thanks for letting me share!
ETER spoke his mind a lot. Sometimes that was a good thing. If you’re anything like me, you find a lot of common ground with the disciple Peter. He needed to be forgiven a lot. And Jesus forgave him again, and again, and again. The following video is from a book reading event I did for Grace Baptist Church in Cedarville, Ohio.
E’RE stuck in a house. Maybe you are too? That’s a couple lines for a short children’s story I wrote tonight that made me think of an idea. I love to publish short kids’ books for my own kids. I self- publish them through a company called Blurb. But with this story, I want to use your kids’ art!
HRISTIANITY, if false, is of no importance,” C.S. Lewis wrote, “and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.” Lewis’s point was simple, Christianity was like any other worldview. It was either true or false. There was no middle ground. In the following talk I give my response to the question, “Is Christianity True?”
ON’T Check Your Brains at the Door was the first apologetic book I remember reading after my teenage conversion. It’s a short book written by Josh McDowell to help prepare young people to face the intellectual challenges of the day. I was reminded of that experience as I originally prepared this talk responding to the question “Is Christianity Rational?” that I published for my students (and others) through Facebook live.
