Interview with Curriculum Author Michael Kelley

Scribe members were recently offered a wonderful opportunity to receive and review a DVD-based small group curriculum published by Threads/LifeWay called The Tough Sayings of Jesus II (Leader Kit).

A Top Ten Movie List

Memes. I have a love/hate relationship with memes. When I’m tagged, I kind of cringe a bit, initially, because I’m not sure what is entailed in any given meme. Some I skip; others I dive into head first because they are actually meaningful. I was just tagged for a meme, but luckily it is a [...]

The Supremacy of Christ in a Postmodern World

It is a critique that may just prove to be the final straw that breaks an increasingly unpopular and self-contradicting camel’s back. Why we’re Not Emergent is a really good read. I highly recommended it [...]

Who Hosts The World’s Largest Bible Printing Facility?

Which country hosts the world’s largest Bible printing facility? United States? No. Germany? Nada. The UK? Nix. South Korea? Nope. Communist China? Yes! Who would have guessed?
In two weeks, the world’s largest Bible printing facility will open in Nanjing, China, prompting some to dub the historic eastern Chinese city the Bible printing capital of the [...]

A Wolf in Sheep Garb Camps at Cornerstone

Sometimes there is more to a visitor than meets the eye! Self-proclaimed atheist Matt Taibbi decided to go undercover and spend some time in Pastor John Hagee’s Cornerstone Church. His goal was not spiritual enrichment, scriptural enlightenment, or Christian fellowship; Taibbi was motived by dirt. He wanted to get some dirt on Hagee and those [...]

The New Centrist Evangelical Voting Block

Rev Dr Anthony Campolo, professor emeritus of Sociology at Eastern University, Pennsylvania, thinks the new centrist evangelicals could decide the upcoming election. Campolo says:
There are millions of us who espouse an evangelical theology but who reject being classified as part of the religious right.
Right on, Campolo. I do think this fresh expression of evangelicalism is [...]
