Well, we are back to a text that gave rise to a 14-part series I did some time back on homosexuality. We need today to pause to look at the context for this text: it has to do with those […]

World as Eikon

posted by xscot mcknight

As Tom Wright observes, natural theology has attached itself to Romans 1:19-21 and gotten all it can out of these verses. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 […]

Suppressing Truth, Suppressing Grace

posted by xscot mcknight

In college I read Francis Schaeffer, about everything he had written. I remember his talking about “suppressing the truth” from Romans 1:18, and I remember grieving over such a condition on the part of fellow Eikons. What does it mean, […]

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou
