A New Verse to a Favorite Hymn

A New Verse to a Favorite Hymn

To the tune of Frederick M. Lehman’s “The Love of God”:

The love of God no hand can stay,
Nor doctrine keep us from his heart.
Though we ourselves may turn away,
God’s love shall ne’er from us depart.

And though we fight God to the grave,
Death fails his love to forestall.
For to this end his life he gave,
That he might reconcile all.

This Nameless Movement of God

This Nameless Movement of God

I posted the following thoughts on my Facebook wall yesterday. The reaction to my post was so strong that I thought I’d share it with my blog readers, along with some additional thoughts.


There is a movement within Christianity for which I do not have a name.

We have many differences, despite our shared convictions. Some of us are conservatives, some liberals, and some progressives. You’ll find us among Evangelicals, Anabaptists, Catholics, Orthodox, Anglicans, Lutherans, Methodists, Pentecostals, and pretty much any other Christian denomination or tradition.

Logos 7 (Software Review)

Logos 7 (Software Review)

In case you haven’t heard, Logos 7 has arrived. I’ve been using Logos Bible Software as my primary study tool since Logos 5, and I am convinced that it is the best option out there for building a digital theological library. It has far more content available than any of its competitors, and the resources are linked together in ways that make it incredibly easy to navigate and find what you’re looking for.

The easiest (and cheapest) way to fill your Logos library is to purchase a base package. Base packages include an assortment of all the various kinds of tools needed for in-depth study, and they come in a number of different sizes and theological traditions. You’ll pay way less for the resources in a base package than you would for them individually. But keep reading to learn how to get Logos free!
