"I am not very far into this book, however it might be a rather balanced account of freedom of religion and the founding fathers. Extremism, from both right and left is tearing this country apart and this debate is at the heart. I am thinking this book might be a good read for both sides. Time will tell."

A well woven narrative meant to demonstrate the larger story about God's grace. The more I read from this Author the more I like the way he thinks. I only wish that he was still with us.

One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
"I’m kinda sad because this past Sunday I concluded a 23 week sermon series through Romans. That’s right, ROMANS! Crazy, I know. I swore I wouldn’t even attempt to preach through Romans till I was at least 50 years old but I decided to do it becaus..." Read more of this blog post »

Steve Brown
“God save me from politicians, Christians, or pagans who think they are my mother!”
Steve Brown, A Scandalous Freedom

Tullian Tchividjian
“The ironic thing about legalism is that it not only doesn't make people work harder, it makes them give up. Moralism doesn't produce morality; rather, it produces immorality.”
Tullian Tchividjian

“Trust him. And when you have done that, you are living the life of grace. No matter what happens to you in the course of that trusting - no matter how many waverings you may have, no matter how many suspicions that you have bought a poke with no pig in it, no matter how much heaviness and sadness your lapses, vices, indispositions, and bratty whining may cause you - you believe simply that Somebody Else, by his death and resurrection, has made it all right, and you just say thank you and shut up. The whole slop-closet full of mildewed performances (which is all you have to offer) is simply your death; it is Jesus who is your life. If he refused to condemn you because your works were rotten, he certainly isn't going to flunk you because your faith isn't so hot. You can fail utterly, therefore, and still live the life of grace. You can fold up spiritually, morally, or intellectually and still be safe. Because at the very worst, all you can be is dead - and for him who is the Resurrection and the Life, that just makes you his cup of tea.”
Robert Farrar Capon, Between Noon & Three: Romance, Law & the Outrage of Grace

Steve Brown
“If you use the law to judge others, go ahead, but don't assume that your judgment mimics the judgement of God.”
Steve Brown, A Scandalous Freedom

Edward Albee
“You're alive only once, as far as we know, and what could be worse than getting to the end of your life and realizing you hadn't lived it?”
Edward Albee
