Kate Bowler’s ‘No Cure For Being Human’ Is Missing Something Really Important

Hope is a centerpiece of Christian faith, and it’s beautifully on display in the Christmas season. But something is happening to the message Christians have heralded through the centuries.

In his January 1961 farewell address to the nation, President Dwight Eisenhower bequeathed to us phrase still used today.

Saving Children From Being Soft, Entitled, And Aimless

Peruse any list of non-fiction bestsellers these days, and one is quickly struck by the reality that the most successful authors tend to be giants of American culture—prominent politicians, erudite pundits of all political persuasions, blue-check celebrities, or the occasional Ivy League academic hoping to cross over from scholarly paper writing into mainstream American mass market book commercialism.
