You probably don’t know this, but I wrote a book! Simon, Who is Called Peter has just been published by Wipf and Stock Publishers, and it’s also available through Amazon. I’m super excited about it, and I’d love for you to give it a read. If you’ve ever wanted to get a human picture of Jesus’ most […]
I seriously need to rethink the content of my sidebar, and especially, of the blogroll. I was enrolled in some old blogrolls that, while useful, are no longer available. Suggestions welcome.
    Isaiah 11:1-5 “There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit. And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the […]
A poem by my friend Howard Ingham You led me to believe it was all about dying. You never told me life was involved, Thanks to the binds you were so set on tying. You led me to believe it was all about dying - You were lying. I plan on applying These principles until the issue is resolved. You led me [...]
From the far star points of his pinned extremities, cold inched in — black ice and squid ink– till the hung flesh was empty. Lonely in that void even for pain, he missed his splintered feet, the human stare buried in his face. He ached for two hands made of meat he could reach to the end of. In the corpse’s [...]
This morning I popped out of Church near the beginning of our second service to be interviewed for BBC London. I thank God for a great morning at Jubilee, and I was glad that I was also able to speak about the real meaning of Easter to many who were not in church today:

The Lord is risen! I hope everyone has a great Easter. As a token of celebration, let me share with you this magnificent piece of music: the Ouverture from the Orchestral Suite No. 3, by Johann Sebastian Bach, in one of its best renderings, by Karl Richter. Enjoy!
Dizzy with joy, the Easter morning sun trembles in the heavens; the tacky buds unclenched, release the appropriate festschrift of leaves. Unsuspected, in their microworld tiny cells teem, crossplay, rich networks of twisted rings interlace, relate to the concord of history rebegun. A starling mimics Bravura, wood-pigeons whoop it up, the orchestra purrs, tunes into a master craftsman. Life da capo, as riding our whirling [...]
Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia! Earth and heaven in chorus say, Alleluia! Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia! Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia! Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia! Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia! Death in vain forbids him rise, Alleluia! Christ has opened paradise, Alleluia! Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia! Where, O death, [...]
Maybe He looked indeed much as Rembrandt envisioned Him in those small heads that seem in fact portraits of more than a model. A dark, still young, very intelligent face, a soul-mirror gaze of deep understanding, unjudging. That face, in extremis, would have clenched its teeth in a grimace not shown in even the great crucifixions. The burden of humanness (I begin to [...]
“Keep your mind in hell and despair not.” — St. Silouan the Athonite I’ve been thinking a lot about death lately. An acquaintance of mine is a widower, and while I knew previously that his wife died several years ago, I only recently learned how: she suffered a sudden and massive heart attack. This woman was […]
To be crucified is first to lie down on a shaved tree, and then to have oafs stretch you out on a crossbar as if for flight, then thick spikes fix you into place. Once the cross pops up and the pole stob sinks vertically in an earth hole, perhaps at an awkward list, what [...]
We are beginning the Holy Week holiday. Maudy Thursday and Good Friday are full holidays, and many also worked the previous Wednesday only until noon. Maundy Thursday is the day where we commemorate Christ’s institution of the Lord’s Supper. Thus, in our country is a day of karu guasu (Guarani: “eat a lot”). Families gather […]
This article was posted on the Crossway Blog, the publishers of my book Raised With Christ. Sunday’s Coming! This week, the attention of every Christian begins to turn towards the vibrant celebration that Easter Sunday will be. Even as we approach Good Friday, we do so with the sure and certain knowledge that, to quote [Read More...]

“To set apart one day a week for freedom, a day on which we would not use the instruments which have been so easily turned into weapons of destruction, a day for being with ourselves, a day of detachment from the vulgar, of independence of external obligations, a day on which we stop worshipping the […]
Just two days to wait before we can see this wonderful movie in British cinemas. Go buy your tickets now! This was the third of my interviews that I filmed last week at the UK premiere:

Those of you who have been reading Christian blogs for almost ten years will no doubt remember one of my early inspirations, an insanely popular blogger called Josh Claybourn. Well, eventually Josh hung up his blogging hat and I have been trying to persuade him ever since to re-enter the fray. Well today I am [Read More...]

900,000 needing to use foodbanks “should shock and anger us” Figures “should lead Government to examine why the post-Welfare Reform benefits system allows so many people to go hungry.” Leaders of the Methodist Church, Baptist Union of Great Britain and United Reformed Church have responded with concern to the latest figures from the Trussell Trust, released today. “These [...]
For most churches, Easter Sunday will be one of the biggest services of the whole year. It is one of those times that people will come out to church. And so you would think that preachers would be relishing preaching this Sunday. Most will. But it can be harder than you think to come up [Read More...]

Wait, so I have finally become a heretic right with a headline like that, right? It is perhaps a slight overstatement of my point but if I added the word “only” then I hope you would see my point entirely. A couple of days ago an article was going around the internet proposing that the [Read More...]

Here’s a letter I emailed to the British newspaper the i, printed yesterday (14 April): I’m delighted and encouraged to hear that David Cameron has stressed the importance of explaining to young people the significance of Easter. Presumably that will include emphasising that, fundamentally, the resurrection was God’s vindication of Jesus of Nazareth, the northern [...]
