A Time To Laugh | He has made everything beautiful in His time. | Camille Lewis
I’m a happy wife to Grant and a gentle, work-at-home mom to my sweet children and six babies in Heaven. I am also an independent scholar, historian, published author, and freelance journalist — what is now called a “nontraditional academic.” I like to knit, smock, bead, scrap, read, and, of course, blog.

Brehm Center: creative integration of worship, theology, & arts in culture. - Brehm Center
Founded in 2001, and named after Fuller Seminary Board of Trustee members William and Delores Brehm; the Brehm Center’s mission is to revitalize the church and culture through the arts. We believe that God is the original artist, the first Creator. By engaging expert faculty, world-class artists, and visiting scholars to investigate the theory and practice of making art in ministry, we hope to inspire a new generation of culture-changers for Jesus’ name.
Often described as an “evangelical think tank”, the Brehm Center and its initiatives sponsor research, community outreach, and integrated education in worship, theology and the arts. The Brehm Center does not operate as a separate school at Fuller. Rather, a Brehm Center Emphasis can be pursued in tandem with any current Fuller Seminary Degree program in the schools of Theology, Psychology, or Intercultural Studies.

Sarah Over the Moon | Sarah Moon
Working my way from fundamentalism to freedom (without losing my mind)
*****
Thank you for visiting my blog!
In it, I tell stories, and I stand on soapboxes.
I call out and I call to action.
I try to figure out who God is.
I attempt to reconcile my Christian faith with my feminist politics.
*****
Welcome readers!
My name is Sarah Moon, and I am a writer and student. I am currently attending Bowling Green State University in Ohio, pursuing a degree in Women’s Studies.
I am a feminist and a member of BGSU’s Organization for Women’s Issues. I am passionate about reconciling my Christian faith with feminism, and about helping to make the church a better place for women everywhere.
I’m opinionated, but I appreciate other points of view, so feel free to ask me any questions!

Five Sided Christian | James Miller
I decided to name my Christian blog Five Sided Christian because the number five in Scripture symbolises "grace" which is absolutely foundational to my Christian doctrine and lifestyle and so is entirely appropriate for the kind of Christianity I believe in.
The number five also ties in with the Five Solas of the Reformation which teach doctrines close to my heart:
Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone) / Sola Fide (Faith Alone) / Sola Gratia (Grace Alone) / Solus Christus (Christ Alone) / Soli Deo Gloria (God's Glory Alone)
I have chosen five key adjectives to describe the focus of my kind of Christianity:
Evangelical / Reformational / Missional / Social / Political

owen strachan | gospel calculus, with some whiz-bang
I am Assistant Professor of Christian Theology and Church History at Boyce College in Louisville, Kentucky. At Boyce, I have the privilege of teaching the full range of both systematic theology and church history. I also teach for The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (for example, an elective course on Fundamentalism & Evangelicalism in summer 2012).
I’m a contributing writer for The Gospel Coalition, a blog columnist for Credo magazine, a contributor to Project TGM, and a fellow of the Society for the Advancement of Ecclesial Theology. From 2008-10, I was the full-time Managing Director of the Carl F. H. Henry Center for Theological Understanding at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and Associate Director of the Jonathan Edwards Center at TEDS.
I earned a PhD in Theological Studies (Historical Theology) under Douglas Sweeney at TEDS from 2008-11, writing on Billy Graham, Harold Ockenga, and the mid-twentieth century re-enchantment of the evangelical mind. From 2005-07, I was the Editorial Assistant to Southern Seminary President Al Mohler, working for him as I completed an MDiv in Biblical & Theological Studies. Before that, I worked on the federal political level, serving the Bush White House in the U. S. Department of State. I have also worked on the state level for the Commissioner of the Maine Department of Labor.
I interned at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC and wrote for 9Marks. I graduated from Bowdoin College with an AB in History in 2003 and am from the coast of Maine. A member of Kenwood Baptist Church, I am married to the lovely Bethany and am the father of two sweet little kids. A hip hop aficionado and player of pickup basketball, I’ve cut a rap cd (no, seriously).
Because words matter, I have published six books and have written for publications like The Atlantic, First Things, Christianity Today, and the Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology.

The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy
NOTE: This was the statement that launched the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy, an interdenominational joint effort by hundreds of evangelical scholars and leaders to defend biblical inerrancy against the trend toward liberal and neo-orthodox conceptions of Scripture.
The Statement was produced at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Chicago in the fall of 1978, during an international summit conference of concerned evangelical leaders. It was signed by nearly 300 noted evangelical scholars, including Boice, Norman L. Geisler, John Gerstner, Carl F. H. Henry, Kenneth Kantzer, Harold Lindsell, John Warwick Montgomery, Roger Nicole, J.I. Packer, Robert Preus, Earl Radmacher, Francis Schaeffer, R.C. Sproul, and John Wenham.
The ICBI disbanded in 1988, its work complete. The Council ultimately produced three major statements: this one on biblical inerrancy in 1978, one on biblical hermeneutics in 1982, and one on biblical application in 1986. A published copy of the statement may be found in Carl F. H. Henry in God, Revelation and Authority, vol. 4 (Waco, Tx.: Word Books, 1979), on pp. 211-219.

Wesley J. Wildman's Home Page
Academic: I teach philosophy, theology, religion, and ethics at Boston University in the United States. I direct Boston University's unique religion and science PhD program. I also work in the theology, comparative theology, and philosophy of religion programs within Boston University's graduate school, and a variety of graduate degree programs in Boston University's School of Theology. With Patrick McNamara, I founded the Institute for the Bio-Cultural Study of Religion, a research institute dedicated to the scientific study of religion.
Outreach: With Chapin Garner I run the Liberal Evangelical Project. This project aims to empower Christians who see themselves as intentional moderates and to offer resources to Christian congregations who intend to be both Christ-centered and creatively inclusive. These Christians and congregations have both liberal and evangelical instincts, they find polarized political and religious debates alienating, and they are inspired by Jesus' example of radical inclusiveness and by his preaching of a love that transcends ideological and theological divisions. Resources are collected at LiberalEvangelical.org, including news articles and Dr. Brandon Daniel-Hughes' perceptive and eccentric Le Blog.
Personal: I live with my family in the Boston area, having emigrated from Australia. I am fond of cricket, Vegemite, and Australian Rules Football.

John G. Stackhouse, Jr. is an award-winning scholar and public communicator who has spent years adventurously mapping our complex cultural terrain, identifying both its worthy achievements and its zones of confusion.
He collects research from a wide range of sources, corrects currently popular interpretations, and connects audiences with information and insight they can put immediately into practice. He is therefore a skilled guide in helping us chart a course through the prospects and impasses of modern society. And he does all this with a wit you’ll find surprisingly refreshing in a scholar.
Our world demands our best,
and Dr. Stackhouse helps us think it and do it.

I've been happily married to the love of my life for over 13 years and we have 3 beautiful children. After my graduation from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in 2011 with an MA in Biblical Studies, we moved to Illinois where I'm working on a PhD in Old Testament at Wheaton College Graduate School under Dr. Daniel Block. I believe passionately in the Word of God (both written and incarnate!) and my deepest joy is seeing lives transformed by the truth of Jesus Christ.

Shored Fragments | Steve Holmes
A blog by Steve Holmes, a Baptist minister, presently employed to teach theology in St Mary’s College, St Andrews, Scotland.
This blog is an exploration of theology and culture from an Evangelical perspective. Part of this, of course, is a focus on what each of these words mean, with the contests over ‘evangelical’ being – at present – more prominent in my mind than the others.

Bryce Walker | Thinking in a Public Forum
I research and write in the area of intellectual history. I am also a husband, father, and friend. The gap between my intellectual pursuits and my life has often been too wide. This blog is an attempt to maintain a nexus between the two.
So that you do not feel misled, I would like to make it clear that I am writing here under a pen name. I have found that blogging can have many negative effects for those in academia…especially those of us who are attempting to think outside of our field of specialization. “Life” usually falls into that category. Thus, I believe that the pen name is a vocational necessity until I have tenure.

P.OST | an evangelical theology for the age to come | Andrew Perriman
My name is Andrew Perriman. My wife, Belinda, and I have lived in various parts of the world over the last 28 years: the Far East, Africa, the Middle East, the Netherlands, and London. Until recently we lived in Dubai, a stone’s throw from the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. We are now back in London.
I’ve combined theological studies and writing with pastoral and missional work in a wide range of contexts. Belinda works in the oil industry.
My overriding theological interest at the moment is in how we retell the biblical story as we negotiate the difficult transition from the centre to the margins of our culture following the collapse of Western Christendom.
In addition to some articles in academic journals, I have written Speaking of Women: Interpreting Paul (IVP, 1998); The Coming of the Son of Man: New Testament Eschatology for an Emerging Church (Paternoster, 2005); Otherways (OST, 2007); Re: Mission: Biblical Mission for a Post-Biblical Church (Faith in An Emerging Culture) (Paternoster, 2007); The Future of the People of God: Reading Romans Before and After Western Christendom (Wipf and Stock, 2010); and I edited a report for the Evangelical Alliance in the UK entitled Faith, Health and Prosperity: A Report on ‘Word of Faith’ and ‘Positive Confession’ Theologies (Paternoster, 2003), also published in the US.
I am also part of Christian Associates, a wonderful organization that seeks to develop open, creative communities of faith for the emerging culture. I should stress, though, that the views expressed on this blog do not necessarily coincide with the position of Christian Associates on the matters discussed.

It is a blend of both nonfiction and historical fiction. I’m the editor of a classic Dutch-Latin text, and I’ve contributed chapters and articles on the history of Christianity. I have a B.A. in Theology, a M.A. in the History of Christian Thought, and a Ph.D. in Historical and Theological Studies (History of Christianity). I have lived in Michigan, Perrysburg (Ohio), Chicago, Philadelphia, and Birmingham, Alabama.

Professor Obvious | Boldly professing the obvious since 2009
Jason A. Staples is a Ph.D. Candidate in Ancient Mediterranean Religions at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a football analyst for NoleDigest.com (FoxSports/Scout.com), and a professional voice talent. He has a B.A. in Religion and an M.A. in Religions of Western Antiquity from Florida State University.
Jason’s doctoral research focuses on the intersections between Judaism and Christianity in the first century, particularly how each group uses and interprets the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament to make its own claim upon the heritage of ancient Israel. His dissertation, “Paul, the Gentiles, and the Restoration of Israel,” examines early Jewish expectations of Israelite restoration and how these expectations shaped the early Jesus movement, with special attention on how the apostle Paul understood his Gentile mission as a necessary component of Israel’s full restoration through the promised “new covenant.” Early returns from this research are presented in the article, “What Do the Gentiles Have to Do with ‘All Israel’? A Fresh Look at Romans 11:25–26,” JBL 130.2 (2011): 371–90. Jason’s academic work has also been published in The Journal of Religion and Film and Facts on File’s Encyclopedia of World History. His wider academic research interests include New Testament, Early Christian history, literature, and thought; Pauline Studies; Second Temple Judaism; the use of Scripture in the New Testament, the Gospels & the historical Jesus; Jewish-Christian relations; exile and restoration; apocalypticism; ancient rhetoric; Imperial Platonism; Hebrew Bible; Wisdom & Apocalyptic Literature; Apostolic Fathers; Dead Sea Scrolls; American Evangelicalism; and religion in popular culture.
This blog focuses primarily upon topics in biblical studies (i.e. New Testament/Hebrew Bible, Paul, Early Christianity, Early Judaism, translation issues, etc.), mainly from a critical/academic perspective, though the aim is to keep each post accessible to any interested reader. Other posts may involve news items or delve into more modern subjects like current religious trends and thought, sexuality, economics, football, and miscellaneous posts on pop culture.
The title of the blog arose from Jason’s realization that most of his scholarship (and teaching/blogging) amounts to pointing out the obvious. “Captain Obvious” was already taken, leading to the multivalent “Professor Obvious.”

Gentle Wisdom - thoughts on life from Peter Kirk, a follower of Jesus
My name is Peter Kirk, and I live in Chelmsford in the south east of England.
I started in life by studying Physics at the University of Cambridge, and worked for several years in the electronics and software industry in Chelmsford, Essex. I left this work and studied theology to MA level at London Bible College, now London School of Theology. Then I joined Wycliffe Bible Translators, and after training in linguistics I served for seven years in the Caucasus region, coordinating a Bible translation project. In 2002 I left WBT, but until 2008 I continued to work part time as an exegetical adviser to the same translation project, based at home in the UK with occasional visits to the Caucasus. I am a member of Meadgate Church, Great Baddow, in the Church of England diocese of Chelmsford.
In 2009 I was married to Lorenza, who is from Italy. In 2010 we temporarily moved north from Chelmsford to Warrington, where we attended Oasis Church, Warrington. In 2011 we moved back to Chelmsford.

STUFF CHRISTIAN CULTURE LIKES | Stephanie Drury
this blog is devoted to the stuff american evangelical culture likes
*****
Hi. This is a scientific approach to highlight and explain stuff Christian culture likes. They are pretty predictable. I sort of consider myself an expert on Christian culture as I am a preacher's kid and I'm also married to a preacher's kid. At one point or another I've been a willing participant in almost all the things I talk about here. Christian culture is funny because it doesn't have much (if anything) to do with Christ himself.
*****
"Why do people in church seem like cheerful, brainless tourists on a packaged tour of the Absolute? … Does anyone have the foggiest idea what sort of power we blithely invoke? Or, as I suspect, does no one believe a word of it? ...we should all be wearing crash helmets". —Annie Dillard, Teaching a Stone to Talk

A Christian Humor Blog with Stephanie Drury - Stuff Christian Culture Likes
A preacher's kid's humorous take on the stuff American evangelicals like

Distracted, southern, mommy, voracious reader of all things crap.
I like electric blankets, dogs wearing cones, and people with depression (because they tend to be nice). I don't like earthquakes, pesto, or changing lanes near a semi.

Credo Magazine
Credo is Latin for “I believe.” From the early Church Fathers to the sixteenth-century Reformers to present-day Evangelicals, Christians have faithfully confessed the faith once for all delivered to the saints (Jude 1:3), over against error and heresy. Credo magazine seeks to situate itself in this biblical tradition by teaching “what accords with sound doctrine” (Titus 2:1).
Credo magazine is self-consciously Evangelical, Reformational, and Baptistic: Evangelical since it aims at being supremely Gospel-centered, exalting in the substitutionary death and historical resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ; Reformational as the gospel it promotes is defined by the solas of the Reformation; and while Credo magazine welcomes contributors from diverse ecclesial backgrounds, it seeks to especially celebrate those doctrines that mark the Baptist tradition.
Credo is a free, full-color, digital magazine that is published bi-monthly and includes:
• Articles by some of the best pastors and scholars today on the most vital and pertinent issues in Christianity.
• Columns engaging pastoral issues in the church and monumental figures in church history.
• Interviews with important pastors and scholars on both their ministries and their new books.
• Reviews of some of the most recent books in Christian theology and literature.
We hope that by providing our magazine free of charge we can have a larger impact on the evangelical community. In order to achieve this goal, we welcome any donations to further the mission of Credo Magazine.

Reclaiming the Mission | David Fitch
I'm a bi-vocational pastor at Life on the Vine and the B.R. Lindner Chair of Evangelical Theology at Northern Seminary.
I am the author of numerous articles on church , culture, mission and theological ethics in journals as diverse as the Journal of the Academy for Evangelism in Theological Education, Missiology, Discernment, Pastoral Psychology and the Journal of Christian Education. I am author of The End of Evangelicalism? Discerning a New Future for Mission (Cascade Books, 2011) and The Great Giveaway: Reclaiming the Mission of the Church from …. (Baker Books, 2005) and the forthcoming Prodigal Christianity: 10 Signposts into the Mission Frontier (Jossey-Bass, 2013) wirh Geoff Holsclaw.
I occasionally serve the furthering of Christ’s Kingdom by speaking/presenting on the challenges of being Christ’s Body in the new contexts of post Christendom, postmodernity and North American consumerist culture. I seek to encourage the church to faithfulness, encourage pastors to more faithfulness, develop and encourage missional church planters, and help denominations/churches navigate the new terrains of N. American post-Christendom culture(s). From time to time, I spend weekends with churches exploring how to be God’s Mission in their locales, leading churches, pastors, and church boards through the process of understanding context and Mission.

Frank Viola — Rediscovering the Supremacy of Jesus Christ
I’ve authored a number of books on Jesus, mission, spiritual formation, and church.
My intent for this blog is to discuss the “hot-button” issues of theology and culture with a view to rediscovering the supremacy of Jesus Christ.
I’ve written three books totally dedicated to the supremacy of Christ: Jesus Manifesto, From Eternity to Here, and Jesus: A Theography.
*****
Who is This Blog For?
* Evangelical Christians who are thoughtful, enjoy being challenged, and revel in engaging in conversations on culture and theology.
*Progressive Christians who have the same interests.
* People who aren’t Christians but who want to hear an evangelical Christian perspective that’s neither Left nor Right and that breaks with the status quo.
* Christians who are interested in rediscovering the supremacy of Jesus Christ in all things, especially in theology and culture.

Peter Enns — rethinking biblical christianity...
Peter Enns is a biblical scholar who writes, speaks, and teaches on the intersection of Bible and contemporary Christian faith. He follows Jesus and the New York Yankees (in that order), and has far too much of "The Office" dialogue accidentally committed to memory than he would like to admit.
*****
I graduated from Messiah College in 1982 with a B.S. in Behavioral Science, from Westminster Theological Seminary in 1989 with an M.D.iv, and from Harvard University in 1994 with a Ph.D. in Near Eastern Langauges and Civilizations.
I taught at Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia) from 1994-2008. I have also taught courses at Harvard University, Princeton Theological Seminary, Fuller Theological Seminary, Lutheran Theological Seminary (Philadelphia), Biblical Theological Seminary, Temple University, and Eastern University. I am currently on the faculty at Eastern University teaching courses in Old and New Testaments.
My academic interests continue to develop, but they include: Old Testament Theology, Biblical Theology, Wisdom Literature (esp. Ecclesiastes), the NT’s use of the OT, Second Temple literature, and the general issue of how ancient Scripture intersects with modern thought.

The Wartburg Watch 2012 | Dissecting Christian Trends
Why Wartburg?
Remember where Prince Frederick hid Martin Luther when Pope Leo wanted him killed? It was Wartburg Castle. It was here that Luther translated the New Testament into German. This coincided with the invention of the Gutenberg Press. Luther's writings dominated most of the publications from this press. We believe the Internet is today's Gutenberg Press.

What Are We ?
We are two Christian women who have seriously pursued our faith. We have discovered some disturbing trends within Christendom which compelled us to start TWW. Our goal is to shine a light into the darkness, exposing hypocrisy, heresy, and arrogance while also examining trends that affect the faith in the public square. Truth and transparency are of utmost importance to us.

What is the focus at TWW?
We look at all of the trends within evangelical Christianity, along with other stories and trends that impact the faith. We have become quite interested in church conflict, spiritual abuse, and hyper-authoritarian polity. We are equal opportunity offenders and do not emphasize one denomination over another.

Woman Submit! Christians & Domestic Violence | Jocelyn Andersen
The doctrine of female subordination to male authority lies at the very root of gender abuse against women which is rampant among professing Christians. The premise is despotic and abusive in and of itself. Gender abuse, which includes domestic abuse and the hate crime of domestic violence will never be eradicated among Christians until gender equality for Christian women is acknowledged and practically implemented within our homes and churches.

Love, Joy, Feminism | by Libby Anne
I was raised in an evangelical family, was homeschooled, was taught to embrace courtship rather than dating, learned that women’s place is in the home, and was highly involved in the religious right. College turned my world upside down, and I am today an atheist, a feminist, and a progressive.
I find myself endlessly fascinated by religion, feminism, and politics. I blog about all sorts of issues, but especially about the trials and joys of leaving fundamentalist and evangelical religion, the problems with the the Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements, the fallout of what I call “purity culture,” the intricacies of conservative and religious right politics, and the importance of feminism. Because I was once myself an evangelical, a religious right activist, and an antifeminist, I try to address these issues with empathy.

Heidelblog | Recovering the Reformed Confession | R. Scott Clark
Welcome! The HB is dedicated to Recovering the Reformed Confession by recovering Reformed theology, piety, and practice.
The name “Heidelblog” is derived from the name of the German city Heidelberg, where the the Reformed Church there adopted the explanation of the faith in the form a collection of questions and answers. That explanation is known as the Heidelberg Catechism (1563).
The HB exists to explain and encourage a return to the historic understanding of Scripture as confessed by the Reformed Churches.
Thanks for visiting the HB.

Society of Evangelical Arminians
Welcome to the online home of the Society of Evangelical Arminians (SEA). Our society exists to glorify God by edifying his people, protecting them from error, and fostering the proper representation of our magnificent God to the world by lovingly and respectfully promoting and advancing sound, biblical doctrine and theology in the area of soteriology (the doctrine of salvation). That means teaching and defending Arminianism, the system of theology that we believe most accurately reflects the teaching of the Bible, the very word of God. It also means refuting Calvinism, a system of theology that lies within the pale of basic Christian orthodoxy, but that is at odds with Arminianism on many key points and that we believe seriously errs in its understanding of God, salvation, and the Bible.

Roger E. Olson | My Evangelical Arminian Theological Musings
First, I will use this blog to share some of my thoughts about theology: reviews of books, comments about current theological topics and miscellaneous ideas especially about evangelical theology (I consider myself an evangelical theologian even if some of my critics don’t!) and Arminian theology (I’m proud to call myself an Arminian and hope folks will look into what that really means before jumping to conclusions!). I may occasionally say something about a different subject.
Second, my intention is that this blog will be a place for irenic exploration and conversation; it is not for insulting people or movements or flaming them. Constructive criticism is, of course, fine.
Third, please understand that I cannot respond personally to all comments even if they are directed to me. Time simply won’t permit it. (I have books and articles to write, courses to teach and papers to prepare for conferences.) Also, if you e-mail me directly (it’s easy to find my e-mail address) please don’t be upset if I don’t respond. I get over 100 e-mails per day and simply can’t respond to all of them.
Fourth, the scene in the above photo expresses a lot about my approach to theology. I view it as a journey, a pilgrimage if you will. For me, theology is an exciting adventure and not a place to settle in and defend. My mind changes even if not easily or with every wind of culture that blows. My favorite theologians are “pilgrim theologians”: Juergen Moltmann is a primary example and Clark Pinnock is another. Some critics call them “moving targets,” but I consider them theological explorers. As Puritan pastor John Robinson told his congregation “God always has new light to break forth from his Word.” Here I hope to share some of that new light I am exploring and I invite you to join in the conversation.

Young, Evangelical, and Catholic | A blog by Brantly Millegan
My name is Brantly Callaway Millegan. My beautiful wife Krista and I are both Catholic 20-somethings that got married while we were still in college. So far we've been blessed with two cute kids, Elijah and Adelaide.
Although we both grew up in Protestant churches, we were both fully received into the Catholic Church at Easter Vigil 2010 about a month before graduating from Wheaton College, the so-called "Harvard of evangelical schools".
At present, I am working part-time on a Master of Arts of Theology at the St Paul Seminary School of Divinity in St Paul, MN and I'm working full-time as the Director of Family Faith Formation at St Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Buffalo, MN.
Aside from spending time with my family and friends, I enjoy reading, playing the piano, and the show LOST.
