When Home Hurts

There are some books that I simply wish never needed to be written, this is one of them. I wish this book didn’t need to exist, but I’m glad that it does because of the world that we live in. Domestic abuse is no laughing matter, it is a serious issue that every person shouldContinue reading “When Home Hurts”

Marriage, Theology, Prayer, Self Harm and Following Jesus

I haven’t been keeping up with my normal weekly pattern of book reviews lately. Maybe you noticed, maybe you didn’t. Regardless, I have a plan that I keep to. But the past month or soo I’ve taken it a bit slower. However, even though the reviews haven’t been coming out, I have still been reading.Continue reading “Marriage, Theology, Prayer, Self Harm and Following Jesus”

Let’s Talk About Sex

Complementarity, a view of the two sexes that is hated by many people, including Christians. I’m not going to lie, I am a complementarian.Continue reading “Complementarity Must Be Divorced From Culture”

Tough Issues, True Hope

Context keeps you right… or at least it should!

One of the blessings of being a native English speaker is that I have the Bible, God’s Word, in my own language and in so many different translations. This is a privilege that many people can take for granted. I worry that many Christians today have become numb to the joy and honour that itContinue reading “Context keeps you right… or at least it should!”
