Tithing 2

Tithing 2

On 3/24 Stephen Chatelier wrote: It is fair to say that I was a touch skeptical - perhaps even smug – about the latest book for review. Tithing, I thought, was so conservative. Me, I’m into the more radical, free-wheelin’, give generously kinda giving (in theory, not practice, of course!). So when in the introduction author, Douglas ...

The Selfless Gene

The Selfless Gene

On 3/13 Stephen Chatelier wrote: Real, full-blooded Darwinism, marked and scarred where it has engaged properly with the world, is a hugely more compelling creed than the one peddled in the paperbacks and accepted uncritically by scientifically unlettered people who want some sort of scientific excuse to rubbish religion.

The Sacred Meal 2

The Sacred Meal 2

On 12/31 Stephen Chatelier wrote: The Sacred Meal by Nora Gallagher is part of the Ancient Practices Series. It is a good book. Gallagher writes with efficiency and a decidedly non-academic style.

Fearless

Fearless

On 9/8 Stephen Chatelier wrote: So ubiquitous are his books, I have not had much other chance but to know of Max Lucado for many years now. Perhaps because of the sheer volume of Lucado paperbacks in Christian bookstores, I have always avoided his books. So, it was with a degree of hesitation and not an insignificant dose of curiosity ... Fearless: Max Lucado

The Hole in Our Gospel

The Hole in Our Gospel

On 7/27 Stephen Chatelier wrote: Discussion surrounding the task of Christian discipleship often ends up capitulating to the dichotomization so embedded in our Western ways of thinking. Richard Stearns, president of World Vision USA, attempts to avoid this in, The Hole in Our Gospel, by suggesting that (evangelical) Christians need ... The Hole in Our Gospel: Book Review
