The Problem of Integration John Coe affirms the assertion, ‘Man must know himself and God,’ but questions modern methodologies, both Christian and otherwise. Speaking old wisdom into a ‘rent reality,’ Coe refuses to accept any of the divorced categories of modernity, manufactured by a fundamentally secular epistemology. The first important recovery he proposes is the […]
So many of us are lonely. Modern Western culture — Christian and not — has all but lost its rich heritage of friendship. Below is my first try at writing out an idea I call “Covenantal Friendship.” I wrote this piece to get out of an assignment for a seminary counseling course. I’d treasure your […]
Kanye West’s 7th album, The Life of Pablo (TLOP) was released a few weeks ago. On this album, Kanye gives his listeners a window into his life and thoughts. Furthermore, I believe this album gives us a picture of a particular type of Christianity that characterizes our american society. The Atlantic’s review of the album […]
“By the sweat of your face you will eat bread, until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For you are dust. And to dust you will return” (Genesis 3.19). Ever since then, humanity has been faced with a choice regarding this decree: either ignore it, avoid it, and live […]

When I was 17, I started to write a few chord progressions and corresponding melodies that eventually, after a 3-year process of revision and re-revision, became a song I finally […]
I once attended a funeral for a man (lets call him “Joe-Bob”) who was renowned in our little town in South Dakota for his regular place at the local bar. It was a unique affair with testimonials that praised Joe-Bob’s happy outlook on life, his ability to hold his alcohol, and his consistent appearance at […]
Donald Trump addressed a mandatory convocation at Liberty University this week, and the internet has been abuzz. The “big news”? Trump said “Two Corinthians” instead of “Second Corinthians”, seemingly revealing his true biblical illiteracy. Little attention has been paid, at least as far as Twitter is concerned, about the content of his quotation, or the […]
2015 was a strange year for the world. Historic court decisions in the US, riots and political uprisings throughout the world, Wars, terrorism, political civil wars, and terrible tragedies. It seems that the world as we know is crumbling around us. The new year didn’t bring anything that new, but simply a pause to our […]
I am pleased to say that my newest article has just appeared in the latest issue of Sehnsucht: The C. S. Lewis Journal—the only academic journal devoted exclusively to the life and work of C. S. Lewis. My article is on C. S. Lewis’ (arguably) greatest work of fiction, Till We Have Faces, and looks […]
