Crossroads, my current project and first novel-sized work, is in the genre I call Christian dystopian. As I’ve rewritten, reread, and reconsidered it, I have been caused to examine its deepest elements.
This has led me to answer the question, why dystopian?
For one, the genre is interesting and pop...Read more of this blog post »

Begin februari besloot ik om blogs in de spots een beetje om te gooien; ik wilde bloggers complimenten kunnen geven en daarom vroeg ik jullie om (anoniem) jullie complimenten in te zenden.

It is Not Your Fault, an undated tract published by Evangelical Tract Distributors, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
THE RESURRECTION FACT reminds me a lot of the classical works on evidential apologetics--especially the classic by John Warwick Montgomery, [[ASIN:0840756410 Faith Founded on Fact: Essays in Evidential Apologetics]]. I found the THE RESURRECTION FACT to be a well-written book, which discusses the...Read more of this blog post »

Să mergi în fiecare zi la școală și să plătești acolo cu tinerețea ta.
Să poți rezolva ecuații, dar la gară și la poștă să nu te poți descurca.
Să faci o facultate, un master și să nu-ți găsești un loc de muncă,
Iar atunci când îl găsești, salariul să nu-ți ajungă.
Să-ți plece copiii din țară ca să-ș...Read more of this blog post »
I hope you’ve had a good week. I’m wrapping up the last couple weeks of the training I’ve been in.

My brother came up to me with a particular bounce in his step a couple of weeks ago. With a very wide and genuine grin he was clearly excited. We don’t usually have much in common to talk about, and he very obviously had something big to tell me. “Soooooo.” He said with a gigantic smile, “One of...Read more of this blog post »
After being reintroduced to one of my favourite PC games Monkey Island, I realised I know little to nothing about voodoo. I know it’s a spiritual practice that originated in Africa with incredible shamanistic views. Then I was introduced to the word ‘folkways’.
