New Content and Media Mentions
First Things published an adaptation of my post on the SBC abuse report.
Trevin Wax continues with his series that engages with my three worlds model. It’s about contextualizing Tim Keller. Bethel McGrew chimed in with some thoughts of her own in a two part series. See part one and part two.
Janie B. Cheaney mentioned me in her World magazine column on being alive in the negative world.
Also new this week:
I wrote about conservatives’ missing link on gender roles. This is useful pre-reading for my monthly newsletter that comes out Monday.
My podcast this week is about the quest for legacy. I explore our desires to inherit and pass on family traditions and heirlooms, and how that romantic vision often collides with reality. I got a ton of emails about this one, so it really resonated with people. Subscribers can read the transcript.
I also did an experimental live discussion with Paul Vanderklay and Bethel McGrew in front of an audience at an event in Wheaton this week. We discussed the state of the church. Due to travel this week, I will be posting the transcript of this next week.
