Blessed feast of St. Ninian!
Among other saintly commemorations today, we remember Ninian, the Enlightener of Scotland. From all apparent worldly analyses, St. Ninian was something of a failure. He’s called the Enlightener of Scotland, because he first brought the Christian faith there in the final years of the 4th century, but he wasn’t terribly ... READ MORE ›

I wrote this about a year ago. 
As a kid growing up in Evangelical churches, I would occasionally hear about the ultimate in Christian travel—the Holy Land tour. And . . . .

I happened upon this article today. Here’s an excerpt: Like St. Paul before him, St. Ignatius, in his capacity as Bishop of Antioch, is writing with authority against those who break off from the Church founded by Christ.

I've just learned that the Ancient Faith Publishing editorial board has accepted for publication my new book about St. Ignatius of Antioch, tentatively titled:

BEARING GOD: What a First Century Syrian Martyr Teaches Us About Life in Christ

Glory to God!

Details about release date, etc., will be forthcoming as they come available. This will be my third book with AFP.

A friend shared this article today, in which one of the writers at The Gospel Coalition (a generally Reformed bunch of Evangelicals) laments the lack of confession in (his?) church: It is puzzling to see one of the defining marks of a Christian’s identity quietly disappear from a church’s worship. I’m speaking, of course, about confession – a time when the church comes together as a repentant people, and asks God to forgive and cleanse, to renew ...
