For all my readers and subscribers.
Ready to take the next step in our journey?
Over the next 6 weeks, I’ll be sharing a series of posts, book reviews & other resources to help you develop a distinctly Christian vision for life, culture, relationships and service. If you are interested in a deeper understanding of the Christian worldview without being overly academic, I promise you will enjoy growing with me and others on this journey.
I will also be tackling some of the biggest issues in this cultural moment. We will help each other become men and women who understand the times and respond from the a biblical foundation. Ready? Let’s go!
1. Read my recently completed Critical Response and Worldview Analysis of the book “White Fragility” by Robin DiAngelo.
This is a sneak peek of the two part series that will be published next week.
2. Recommended Resources to get us rolling:
Book: A Christian Manifesto by is A. Schaeffer
If you have not read this book yet or its been a few years, its time! Written in 1981, this volume was prophetic in that we’re seeing what Schaeffer was describing 40 years ago.
Podcast: Theology Pugcast – A Tale of Two Revolutions (July 27, 2020)
In this episode, Glenn contrasts the secular, Enlightenment-inspired French Revolution with the spiritual revolution that transformed England at roughly the same time. The French Enlightenment was an anti-Christian project that provided a radical critique of society and theorized about how to fix it. Once the French internalized Enlightenment ideas, the Revolution became inevitable, though it took a government debt crisis to trigger it. The elite’s theories didn’t solve the problem, resulting in chaos and the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of French citizens. In contrast, the spiritual revolution in England from the Evangelical Revivals reached deep into the lower classes and prevented England from degenerating into the violence of the French Revolution. It also led to Wilberforce and the Clapham sect and the spiritual and moral transformation of English society. Chris and Tom chime in about the philosophical ideas of the Enlightenment and the parallels with America today.
