Our Need for Friendly Giants

How 'The BFG' rekindles our dream of the divine. On Paul Simon’s new album Stranger to Stranger, he sings: I trade my tears To ask the Lord For proof of love If only for the explanation That tells me what my dreams are made of… This reminds me of what C. S. Lewis said: “If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in this world can...

The Church and the Huddled Masses

Throughout US history, the church has had a complicated relationship with the "homeless, tempest-tost" looking for a better life. I wince at the image of three-year-old Alan Kurdi, washed ashore on a Turkish beach one year ago. Or of five-year-old Omran Daqneesh, bloodied and dusty after surviving a bombing in Aleppo. I think of my own one-year-old...

Evangelical Views of the 2016 Election: Follow Up w/ Deborah Fikes on Why She Supports Clinton Despite Clinton's Views on Abortion, Marriage, & Rel Liberty

Clinton supporter answers common Evangelical objections Hillary Clinton has been an aggressive pro-choice advocate and her views on abortion are far from what evangelicals believe. Why should pro-life evangelicals vote for someone with whom they disagree so deeply? For me, the reality of what happens to an unborn child in an abortion procedure is...

Race in America: Race and Ecclesiology (The Church's Response Matters)

Managing Director of the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism Last week, I binge watched (apparently, that’s a thing) Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix. Based in Harlem, the show is unapologetically black and unapologetically political. One article in Time calls it the “most political superhero show yet.” It pulls no social punches, addressing everything...

Evangelical Views of the 2016 Election: Norman Geisler on Why He's Supporting Trump and not Changing His Mind

Trump supporter answers common Evangelical objections He’s certainly changed his views over the years, so how can you trust his stance on issues of evangelical concern (e.g. abortion, same-sex marriage) once he is elected? This question seems to suppose that it is wrong to change your view, even when you are wrong. By this logic the Supreme Court...

Call Out Locker Room Talk for the Sin That It Is

We can’t excuse inconsistent principles in our politicians, or in each other. “It’s just locker room talk.” With these five words, Donald Trump and many of his supporters have tried to brush away the presidential candidate’s sexually predatory comments recorded in a 2005 conversation between the GOP presidential candidate and NBC host Billy Bush....

'The Birth of a Nation' Releases to Mixed Reviews and Moral Dilemmas

Things we're reading and discussing this week. This week, the much-discussed Nat Turner biopic Birth of a Nation released to mixed reviews, partially on account of the controversy surrounding director Nate Parker’s past in the months before the release, partially on account of the film’s disputed artistic merits. CT interviewed Parker about his Christian...

[Updated with James MacDonald reaction] Two days after The Washington Post released a video of Donald Trump candidly bragging about his aggressive groping and kissing of women, there has been little public movement among his leading evangelical supporters and detractors.
