I first became aware of Billy Joel after the release of Glass Houses in 1980. But I became a fan three years later in 1983 when my friend’s dad picked us up from school in his Camaro while blasting the An Innocent Man album on his stereo. I was mesmerized by the doo-wop style: it was […] The post Me and Billy Joel appeared first on Randal Rauser ..read more

That said, I do read tweets on occasion and today I read a tweet from Ben Watkins for which I wanted to provide a quick reply. Ben’s tweet is […] The post Naturalism and Theism Compared and Contrasted appeared first on Randal Rauser ..read more

As a fifty year old, cynical GenX male, I suspect I am not the primary audience for a Beth Moore book. Before I picked up her new memoir, I knew only that she was a very popular Southern Baptist Bible teacher/speaker and that she had left the Southern Baptist Convention recently under some controversy. All […] The post Beth Moore, Baby Killer? appeared first on Randal Rauser ..read more

Yesterday, Canada’s leading evening news program, The National, broadcast a short six-minute documentary on the John Stackhouse case. What is particularly significant is that the documentary introduces two witnesses to the public: Courtney and Indira. This is significant because the original Summary of Findings of the investigation posted by Crandall University was anonymous. And as […] The post The John Stackhouse Case Continued: The Witnesses Speak appeared first on Randal Rauser ..read more

On November 23, CBC posted the news that one of Canada’s leading evangelical scholars, John Stackhouse, had been terminated by Crandall University for sexual harassment of students.

It’s been 28 years since Bill Watterson stopped drawing Calvin and Hobbes and people still love it. Why is that?

First, I don’t think any cartoon has ever equalled Calvin and Hobbes’ masterful depiction of childhood imagination.
