    Politics from the Pulpit?

     Unless you are a cloistered cleric, you are aware—perhaps painfully aware—that we are in the thick of a presidential election year. Social media and the 24 hour news cycle provide an incessant source of political punditry and prognostication.

    Norway’s Parental Rights Down the Rabbit Hole, America Next?

     In 1865, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, published his famous novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Readers then and now continue to be mystified by a narrative that can only be described as illogical and wholly irrational.

    A Bible for Cheeseheads: An Interview with Art Starr

    Attorney and Chicago Bears fan John Mauck interrogates Pat Baker (aka Art Starr), the author of The Cheesehead Bible. This adaption of the Gospel for Packer fans presents a stirring saga of the burly people of Wisconsin who turn war into ritual. You may say its a cheesy book of biblical proportions.   Read More...

    Avoiding the Mission Drift: An Interview with Peter Greer

    Without careful attention, faith-based organizations drift from their founding mission. It's that simple. It will happen. Slowly, silently, and with little fanfare, organizations routinely drift from their purpose, and many never return to their original intent.   On our inaugural show of Lawyers for Jesus, we spoke to Peter Greer of Hope International, a global Christ-centered microenterprise development organization empowering the poor throughout Af...  Read More...
