Christians are part of communities where we do want to help the community to try to buttress, to build up, to strengthen and to serve those who are in need.

It is also sinful judgment.

May 29, 2020

Historian Tom Holland has written a new book, Dominion: How the Christian Revolution Remade the World, which has come as something of a surprise for several reasons. First, Holland is not a Christian. Second, Holland’s book is one of the most ambitious historical defenses of Christianity in a very long time.
