When Life Burst Out of Death
A theological imagining of how the Big Bang echoes Easter. Ironically, in defense of biblical faith, some Christians denounce the Big Bang—a theory originally rejected by many in the scientific community on the grounds that it smuggled a biblical view into science. Belgian Catholic priest...
Is the Wrath of God Really Satisfying?
God’s anger against sin is real on Good Friday, but he doesn’t “turn his face away” from the Cross. “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” These words come from the lips of Jesus as he hangs on the cross (Matt. 27:46; Mark 15:34). They are powerful and haunting, and they...
Easter Fool’s Day
The real divine “prank” is not the Resurrection. This Holy Week, hundreds of frazzled preachers around the world have undoubtedly heaved a sigh of relief. Instead of having to fret over what illustration to use on Easter Sunday morning to capture their listeners’ attention, they can...
6 Ways to Survive the Grief of Childlessness
In a time of loss and lament, here’s how I found spiritual solace. When I was 19, a doctor said words I hoped never to hear: “You won’t ever be able to carry your own child.” I was too stunned to cry; all I felt was numbness. It took a few days for the shock to turn into...
NBC Resurrects ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’
How will Christians respond to the live production? The show’s history offers some clues. “Jesus Christ, Superstar, do you think you’re what they say you are?” This question—sung by Judas Iscariot and a backup chorus—has reverberated across popular culture for...
Good Friday, Billy Graham, and the Transcendent Gospel
The truth presented to us in scripture should tell us something about not only who we are but who our neighbors are: image bearers of the Father in heaven. Today is Good Friday; the day we remember Christ’s death on the cross. This sacrifice—the greatest outpouring of love this...
The Incredible Hospitality of Good Friday
Jesus’ death demonstrates God’s love for outsiders, enemies, and strangers. It can travel anywhere in time and space, and it looks much bigger on the inside (or smaller on the outside, depending on where you’re standing). In 1963, it blended in perfectly as a British police box. But...
US Catholics More Concerned About Climate Change Than Persecuted Christians
Most think persecution is severe, but only half are very concerned or strongly support asylum or financial aid. The Colosseum in Rome was recently lit up the color of blood. “This is a symbol of the persecution of Christians in the entire world—those who suffer because of...
Will Trump’s New Secretary of State Prioritize Religious Freedom?
Fired Rex Tillerson was still shuffling strategy. Now experts are looking to Mike Pompeo to set the tone. Top advocates have spent much of President Donald Trump’s time in office waiting for his administration’s international religious freedom efforts to fall into place. With...
Food for Thought: The Theological Life of Pi
The mind-boggling discoveries of computers and what we—and God?—still may never know. For Pi Day this year, chew on this: Does God know all the digits in pi? Or does he know the answer to the myriad of unresolved mathematical problems out there today? The great fifth-century African...
