Books that Inform

posted by Ruth Graham

A book that recently came my way is Indivisible by James Robison and Jay W. Richards. It is a good read. The have “put the  hay down where the cows can get it”. With all the many voices clamoring to be heard theirs is a clarion call to understand our roots and look to the way the Founding Fathers set our government up. It has been very helpful to me as I listen to all the pundits and talking heads. James and Jay articulate the Christian worldview that is so necessary in order to discern what is taking place these days.

Whether you are a Republican or Democrat, we need to understand the times. This is a pivotal year in the life of our country and I, for one, am very concerned. We can no longer sit on the sidelines and be apathetic. It is time to speak up.

I urge you to run, not walk, to your bookstore and get a copy of Indivisible.

In the same vein, it was helpful to read Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxes to understand the times that lead up to the rise of Adolf Hitler. Our political life cannot be separated from our spiritual life. Dietrich Bonhoeffer lost his life because He was willing to take a stand against the evil of his day. We must do likewise.

    I strongly agree with your view that we should stand up for what we think is just and speak up. Thank you for sharing Indivisible, I will definitely check it out.

Good and Evil
The contrast between evil and good has been in the news and on our front pages this week. It was a thrill to see Dr. Brantley on the news yesterday as he left Emory University Hospital hand in hand with his wife. It is a miracle that he is alive and expected to live a full life. Ebola is a deadly

Rest, Elijah!
Many of us are familiar with the story of the great Old Testament prophet, Elijah. Quite a man. He confronted the wicked Queen Jezebel many times - stood for God's truth and authority at his own risk. Jezebel, with her husband, Ahab, were formidable, powerful, calculating adversaries. They struck t

Hope vs. Despair
Have you ever been depressed? Low? Lower than a "lizard's belt buckle", as my mother used to say. "Cast down", as King David said in Psalm 42. David wrote he cried day and night while men taunted him. He thought back to the good times which made him feel worse. He uses the word,  "disturbed" -

The Iron Dome
Last Saturday night, my little town did its fireworks - we do them the week after the 4th. As I crawled into bed, I could hear all the booms and see the glow from the explosions in the distance. Of course, I couldn't help but think of those in war-torn areas of he world. I remember being in Sar

A Pedophile's Dream...Sex Traffickers Welcome!
There is a lot of talk about the immigration issue and the situation on our Southern border. But I have not heard anyone mention that having all these unaccompanied children in our border states and beyond is a real dream come true for pedophiles and sex-traffickers. Strangers are allowed to step fo
