Lewis on Communicating Our Faith

Few modern writers have been able to communicate the truth of the Christian faith as effectively as C. S. Lewis. It only makes sense then, pay attention to a few of the things he had to say on the subject. In an essay entitled “Christian Apologetics,” he offers this observation: Our business is to present

Osteen, Shuller, and Thermometers

Your Turn: Christ and Politics

Before we begin I must make a few comments: 1. Of the regular bloggers at EverySquareInch, I am most likely the least politically aware.2. I’m 26…thus I don’t have a wide base of experience and maturity to draw from.3. I generally lean toward the Republican side, but disagree with the oft-said premise in some circles,
