This is a blog written by scholars, for anyone who wants to consider the Christian faith through a deeper lens. Here are a few of the guidelines we use to write by.
1) REASON & REFLECTION. The short essays featured here should employ a skeptical and thoughtful consideration of some issue. It might draw from the scholar's life (and indeed it is preferred) but these experiences should be informed by some thinker, philosophy, or hermeneutic.
2) RESPECTFUL REACTION. Sometimes we disagree. Often, in fact. No matter: every essay and response should respect the author's ideas, even while offering an insightful critique.
3) RATIONAL RHETORIC. Every essay should be thoughtfully composed and include some idea or theory from the academic world. These thinkers have much to add to the Christian conversation, and evangelicals tend to neglect or silence them too often.
4) RELEVANT REVERENCE. The mission of this blog is to live out the first commandment to the fullest: to love God with all our heart, our mind, our soul, and body. Every essay through its provocation of consideration should exercise the mindful worship of the author and the reader.
