The Audacity to Hope (1990)

“It's easy to hope when there are evidences all around of how good God is.

Easter and the Problem of Evil

Easter and the Problem of Evil This Easter I waited for the usual Newsweek, Time or U.S. News magazine cover story about “Why Jesus Really Died,” or the “Lost Christianities” the Church has supposedly suppressed in centuries past. Mercifully, I didn’t notice any (I did find a very respectful photo essay on Ireland’s religious orders in Newsweek). Could it be… READ MORE >
