Rationality and Faith: An Excerpt from Escape from Reason

This month’s free Ebook is Escape from Reason, Francis Schaeffer’s classic examination of postmodernism and Christianity’s response.

Escape from Reason is justifiably ranked as one of the greatest apologetic works of the twentieth century, in part due to Schaeffer’s overwhelming compassion for those lost in humanism that engages the Christian heart and mind on every page. [Read more…]

The Two Most Overlooked Pauline Epistles

The letters to the Thessalonians are often overlooked within the Pauline corpus. Paul’s meatier theological writings, such as Romans or Colossians, often get most of the attention, but 1 and 2 Thessalonians are packed with theology, too. In his letters to the church in Thessalonica, Paul helps his brethren consider the true nature of Christ. They also contain some of the clearest eschatological teachings in all of his writings.

How to Choose Your Next Read

I used to feel a lot of pressure to read must-read books. I felt guilty when I saw books on my friends’ shelves that I clearly should have read by that time. Things like Calvin’s Institutes, and whatever else my more advanced peers in biblical studies had read. I still feel some of that pressure, and I think some of it is healthy.

But then one of my favorite writers, Alan Jacobs, liberated me. He recommended that I drop out of the Vigilant School of the Must-Reads and live my reading life under the sign of Whim. I should read what I want. [Read more…]

June’s Free Ebook: Escape from Reason by Francis Schaeffer

Christian apologist Francis Schaeffer profoundly impacted twentieth-century evangelicalism. And few books have shaped the modern Church’s understanding of the culture more than his classic work, Escape from Reason.

Escape from Reason is Schaeffer’s masterpiece of postmodern analysis. He unpacks humanism’s presuppositions and pushes post-modernism to its logical conclusion–total meaninglessness. But in that despair, he counters with the answer to modern man’s existential crisis—the gospel of Jesus Christ. [Read more…]

being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit

Using the inline interlinear feature I observed at the beginning of the first clause was a Greek word (μέν or men) that wasn’t translated. Then at the beginning of the second clause was a Greek conjunction (δέ or de) which was translated but. [Read more…]
