The word evangelist comes from the Greek – meaning the messenger of good news. I have often described Richard Dawkins as an atheist evangelist…but it doesn’t really work because atheism has no good news. … Continue reading The Atheist Cacangelist
I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favour to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all. Moreover, no one knows when their hour will come: As fish are caught in a cruel net, or birds are taken in … Continue reading Ecclesiastes 9: Time and chance, and why we can’t always get what we want
(Richard Dawkins is in Sydney this weekend so I issued this challenge to him on the Christian Today website) Dear Professor Dawkins, Apologies for writing you another letter (remember The Dawkins Letters?) but you just don’t seem to be responding. It’s so funny how we don’t talk any more. Anyway, I hope you are well and fully recovered from your recent bout of illness (I would … Continue reading An open letter to Richard Dawkins: What have you got to lose by debating God’s existence with me this weekend?

The more we speak about unity … Continue reading A Profound Message in Bitterly Divided Times – Christmas Saturday Essay in The Daily Mail
Loving doing Ecclesiastes for Christian Today – it always amazes me how beautifully and directly relevant it is to today’s culture. My favourite Gospel book! Here is the latest one on ch.3:9-11. I had orginally entitled this ‘The Burden of Eternity and Beauty’ but I prefer their retitling! Ecclesiastes 3: There’s a reason why we’re born with a sense of eternity As we head towards Christmas … Continue reading Ecclesiastes 3:9-11- There’s a reason why we’re born with a sense of eternity
