As one of our faithful readers was perusing the current issue of Modern Reformation, he came across this sentence in the Geek Squad section: Refracted by/through the Fall, the cultural mandate is no longer holy work. It is profane though legitimate and common and valid for all creatures created in God’s image. This raised a bit of [...]
“What I’m arguing in this book is that liberals have to wake up. Art is spiritual—it uses physical materials, but it’s a spiritual quest, and the artistic mission has a spiritual goal. But nothing in the ideology or language of current academe—from Berkeley to Harvard—permits anyone to say that.” Watch InstaVision’s interview with literary critic [...]
Zondervan is celebrating Reformation Week with an e-book sale (which is an arguably better way to do it than the let’s-get-bombed-on-six-kinds-of-sugars-and-additives tradition). We think it’s a pretty sweet deal (pun totally intended) – $20 for The Christian Faith! Go to www.amazon.com (or any other major e-book retailer) and stock up – just make sure [...]
Rev. Ken Jones of The White Horse Inn discusses his views on reforming the local church, and why it’s worth the headache. The reality is that a church has the right to be wrong – if the conviction of the leadership of the church is different from what your new convictions are, and you try [...]
We sat down to chat with Dr. Rosenbladt about his article in this month’s issue of Modern Reformation, ‘What Drove Luther’s Hammer’, and learned about sleeping on concrete floors, a ruined gastrointestinal tract, and the stupidest decision ever made in Western Christianity. If you know of anyone who thinks they can earn their way to [...]
We’re sending off the summer with two great interviews with Dr. Adam Francisco of Concordia University. In this interviews, Dr. Francisco gives us great insight into the historical development and theological influences on the Koran, the Islam PR re-vamp, and the difference between Muslims and Islam. Watch, learn, and be edified. Happy Viewing!
I love children’s books – I never would’ve made it through Moby Dick without the Great Illustrated Classics version. They’ve proved invaluable when teaching my ESL students, too – Ivanhoe becomes a lot more palatable to new English readers once you’ve removed the polysyllabic words and anti-Semitism, and I’m convinced that even the most apathetic [...]
Sex advice columnist and MTV-show host Dan Savage has come up against heavy criticism of late for his remarks about homosexuality and other eight-letter-words in Scripture. Thrilling as it would be to jump right into that tête-a-tête, the conversation has been had, with no words minced and little love lost. Rather than reiterate what has [...]
Modern Reformation contributor and street evangelist veteran Leon Brown sat down with us to discuss his article “Common Objections” – need some practical advice from an old hand? Look no further!
When I was nineteen, my former pastor’s wife gave me a book called Blue Like Jazz. I had heard enough about it to be suspicious, but I went home, closed myself up in my library, and read it. I was completely confused. The Christian faith he was talking about bore enough of a resemblance to [...]
