If you’ve taken a look around the new website design, you’ve noticed a couple of tabs that don’t have any entries under them yet. One of those is “Podcast.” Most people know what a podcast is. When I started figuring that out, one thing I learned is that content and length vary a LOT. I …

Since Amazon banned me from reviewing, I guess I've been sulking in a corner, thinking writing reviews anywhere else wouldn't matter. But you need to read this book. It's wonderful. My review is posted on Goodreads, but, since …

The Conflict of the Ages

Every good writing teacher tells us to narrow our topic because the sure sign of a novice is a paper entitled "The Universe and Everything in It."

What’s Elk Jerky for the Soul?

Today we Christians hear many messages designed to make us feel better, and above all to be easy to digest (understand, absorb), like chicken soup.
