posted by Jesus Creed Admin

This has been a busy summer for me – much more so than usual – and it has taken me a while to work through John F. Haught’s book  Making Sense of Evolution: Darwin, God, and the Drama of Life.  […]

Slippery Slopes? (RJS)

posted by Jesus Creed Admin

It is common to hear Christians express concern about the slippery slope. The image is of a peak, or perhaps a plateau or mesa on which we are safe – but to step away is to risk all. In the […]

What About the Genealogies? (RJS)
