In Metaphysical Perspectives , Nicholas Rescher offers a grand vision of how to conceptualize, and in some cases answer, some of the most fundamental issues in metaphysics and value theory. Rescher addresses what he sees as the three prime areas of metaphysical concern: (1) the world as such and the architecture of nature at large, (2) ourselves as nature's denizens and our potential for learning about it, and (3) the transcendent domain of possibility and value. Rescher engages issues across a wide range of metaphysical themes, from different world views and ultimate questions to contingency and necessity, intelligent design and world-improvability, personhood and consciousness, empathy and other minds, moral obligation, and philosophical methodology. Over the course of this book, Rescher discusses, with his characteristic fusion of idealism and pragmatism, an integrated overview of the key philosophical problems grounded in an idealistically value-oriented approach. His discussion seeks to shed new light on philosophically central issues from a unified point of view.

ICYMI: Jimmy Kimmel Tells Viewers, 'I Happen to Be a Christian, Too'

Not only has he been a vocal critic of (now-former) Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore—who just lost the election to Democrat Doug Jones following numerous allegations that he sexually pursued (and even molested) teen girls—Jimmy Kimmel has also been an advocate of healthcare laws he believes best support the families of young children. Earlier this week, Kimmel brought his newborn son to the show after he successfully went through heart surgery, and pleaded with viewers to support legislation that he believes will help more children like his son. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqulWPljawo But one of the storylines that has gotten a bit lost

How Jazz Can Shape Apologetics

Jazz is a national treasure, but is no longer a common pastime. First rock and then hip hop eclipsed its popularity long ago. Historian Gerald Early claims that three things uniquely define America: the Constitution, baseball, and jazz. Yet the sale of jazz records accounts for only a small fraction the music market. The last time I checked, it was 4%. Many of my students at Denver Seminary and at other institutions where I teach know very little about it, and are a bit puzzled if not flummoxed by my references to it. Others claim they “do not understand jazz,” perhaps with a twinge of guilt that they should. Last summer, a very intelligent and godly campus minister and long-time friend attended a jazz concert with me. Afterward he said, “The music has a center, but I cannot find it.” I humbly told him that I had found it and that I loved it. I love it for many reasons. One outstanding reason is that it can help inform and reform our apologetics engagements through its distinctive genius. All that is needed is a bit of transposition from the sensibilities of jazz to the skills of apologetics.

2 Christianity Today’s 2018 Book Awards

“Globalization is a complicated topic. Myers makes dense concepts relatively accessible to his readers and provides theological lenses through which to see the issues at stake. He is most concerned about the intersection of globalization with the poor and with Christian mission. The book explains how globalization is part and parcel of world Christianity, and vice versa. Myers takes a clear-eyed view of globalizing processes, seeing both the good and the evil they bring. One of the most helpful lessons Myers provides is on the role individual humans might play in a globalized society, and how we should not lose sight of an all-powerful God, who is over, above, and in the midst of globalization, even as globalization is part of our fallen creation and is not likely to last forever.” —Stephen Offutt, associate professor of development studies, Asbury Theological Seminary

Christianity Today’s 2018 Book of the Year

“Trevin Wax is on a quest for deep and enduring joy, and he’s not content to go at it alone. This book is a winsome invitation into the Christian faith and witness that has so much more to say than ‘This is right and this is wrong.’ Rather, ‘This is better.’ Wax is no incurable optimist or jaded cynic. He commends the real God who will satisfy our souls, now and forever, and holds out, as he says, ‘the good news that is true, good, and beautiful.’ ” —David Mathis, executive editor, desiringGod.org

Watch Where You Walk in 2018

Such love will cost us, of course; we’ll have to relinquish handfuls of time and comfort and convenience. But in the end, Jesus knows how to repay everything you lose on the path of love, “Whatever good anyone does, this he will receive back from the Lord” (Ephesians 6:8). Go low in love, and Christ himself will lift you up. Walk in love this year.

Homesick for Heaven: A Story to Share with Non-Christians - Christian Research Institute

Throughout several decades of marriage, my wife and I have been privileged to live in four houses close to natural environments. Our present home was new when we purchased it, and located only a short walk from a beautiful grove of ancient live oaks. Within minutes, we can hike under their massive sheltering branches and then plunge into an “elfin forest” of native chaparral. Still, we wanted nature even closer. So within days after moving in, we began the backbreaking labor of planting groundcover, shrubs, and trees to cover the barren earth. We put out birdfeeders and birdbaths and planted flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. We wanted nature at our doorstep; we wanted to look out our windows and see greenery; we wanted birds and other animals to feed in our yard. The hard work paid off. So far we have identified nearly forty different species of birds just looking out our living room windows. We’ve had raccoons, opossums, squirrels, rabbits, and lizards find nourishment in our yard.

Looking back at some of the things your parents told you to do “because they said so,” was it the right thing? Yes. Can you see in hindsight now how they were wise? God will say the same thing the rest of your life, not just when you’re a kid. When you’re 80 years old, God is going to be saying, “I want you to do this.” And you’re going to go, “Why? That doesn’t make sense.” And God will say, “Because I said so.”

Paul vs. Muhammad: An Introduction

Is Christianity at War with Science?

The claim that Christianity is at war with science is one of the most common claims I hear from young people today.

The Trinity Fitness Centers are spreading fast; they’ve made it easy to start new ones. And I know this isn’t a topic we normally address at the Colson Center or here on BreakPoint. But it’s a terrific example of applying Christ’s Lordship over every square inch, including the sweaty ones… and of Christians working locally to bring restoration in a culture that’s too often bowling alone.

A New Year, A New Bible Reading Plan

Happy New Year! 2018 is here already, and I cannot believe it. Thanks for joining us for another year — our sixth year on the podcast. Pastor John, I cannot believe we have been doing this now for 230 weeks in row. And another new year is upon us. And that means Christians across the globe will be starting, or re-starting, their read-through-the-Bible-in-a-year plans. So, I want to ask: Can you make a case for the discipline? Name the plan you use. Explain why you like it. Explain the pace of reading. And maybe what you’ve learned after doing this for so many years.

Why Did God Create Angelic Beings? | Cold Case Christianity

Why did God create angelic beings? Given their love for God’s children, angels appear to be yet another expression of God’s love for us. God’s angels give us a glimpse into His heart, for when we observe the loving activity of angels, we are actually witnessing the loving nature of God Himself.

Looking Up by Kyle Hooks :: Reasons for the Bible: The Bible is Consistent

God, the creator of all things, is both loving and angry, vengeful and merciful, “the just and the justifier” (Romans 6:23). Humans, his creation, are unequivocally sinful and depraved by their own choices, deserve death, but enjoy God’s grace because at the very least they do not die in the instance of their sin. More than that, they enjoy sun, rain, food, drink, friendship, family and love, which are all given from the hand of God no matter how hard they think they worked for it. Some people are even redeemed, made new and regarded as righteous by putting their faith in God and allowing him to do so, despite their continuation in sin. God made payment for the sin of mankind by offering himself — as Jesus Christ who is fully God and man — to accomplish justice and to offer grace to those who will accept it. Abraham enjoyed this relationship with God the same way Paul did. In short, “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

Does Jeremiah 29:11 Apply to You?

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” These words are the John 3:16 of American cultural Christianity. Watch how often they show up on the Bible verse plaques sold in Bible Belt mall kiosks or posted on Facebook walls, even on tattoos. Whether as home decor or on social media posts, I see this passage claimed fervently by people I know haven’t been in a church service since the first Bush Administration. Naturally, this love for Jeremiah 29:11 has often led more theologically-oriented Christians to lament its out-of-context use. So much so that a young Christian recently asked me, “Does Jeremiah 29:11 apply to me, or not?” My answer: Kind of. Let me take that back. Yes, it does apply to you, but not in the way many “claim” the passage. Not a Prosperity Gospel Preacher Many understand the text to be about God’s favor on one’s life and plans. If I just have confidence and follow my heart , someone might think, God will bless me . That’s not the prophet Jeremiah; that’s Deepak Chopra.
