Christianity and Indigenous Peoples in Canada

In the 2011 Canadian census, which is the most recent one to give us information on religion, 63% of Indigenous respondents self-identified as Christian, compared to 67% of non-Indigenous respondents. Most Indigenous people identified as Roman Catholics; the next largest groupings were, in order, Anglican, United Church, and Pentecostal. While it’s true that “census Christians” don’t necessarily attend worship services regularly, if at all, the statistic suggests at least that most Indigenous people take a positive view of Jesus. And it’s not just that a lot of Indigenous individuals are Christian. For several Indigenous nations, Christianity has developed as an...

Who Is Athanasius of Alexandria?

Today, we tend to take the doctrine of the Trinity for granted at some level—that is, we assume that it’s self-evident that Jesus, the Word of God, is fully God in all the ways God the Father is, likewise the Holy Spirit, but there’s still only one God, in the greatest, most beautiful mystery of our faith. But when we start thinking about the details, a lot of us are fuzzy. What does consubstantial even mean? How can three persons have a single essence? Or be a single essence? Some even ask, what does all this abstruse theological reasoning have...

Joe Rogan and the Search for Transcendence

Living in Montreal, I am used to encountering deeply secular people. No heaven above, no hell below, no God at all. Can you even show me one solid piece of evidence for your God? Why would you believe in old debunked myths? These are the kinds of questions they ask. How does one share the hope of the gospel with such people? Depending on the particular stripe of unbelief, it may be to poke holes in the materialist fortress, to point out self-evident echoes of eternity in their own beliefs, to show the moral implications of atheism, or any number...

R. J. Rushdoony: A Patriarch for Modern Theonomy

I grew up with R. J. Rushdoony and Gary North on my family’s bookshelves. My homeschool curriculum had indirect ties to him. Aspects of my university and seminary education also bore the influence of Rushdoony’s thought. I read the works of Cornelius Van Til (who influenced Rushdoony) and Greg Bahnsen to understand apologetics.[1] Despite these connection points, I had no reason to dig into Rushdoony’s works themselves. After all, theonomy had died out in the 1980s and 90s, which was preceded (if not caused) by infighting among its key players. Rushdoony and Gary North (his son-in-law), for example, had a...

The Wingfeather Saga: A Review

There is a feeling I get when I finish a truly special book. It is the sense that I’ve been granted a rare glimpse of something beautiful and good, a sense of gratitude and satisfaction, like when you come to the end of a great vacation. I don’t imagine I’m the only one. And this is exactly how I felt as I closed the back cover of book 4 in the Wingfeather Saga. I soaked in that quiet moment even as my shirt soaked up the tears that the final pages had elicited. What is the Wingfeather Saga? It is...
