  • WORLD Announces Children's Books of the Year 2016

    I once again had the honor to serve on the committee to choose the fiction and nonfiction books in this annual competition for the best books for middle-school kids. (There's also a category for picture books, for the younger crowd). And the winners are . . . READ FULL ARTICLE »
  • Information for Life

    I have a set of maxims I call "Roberto's Rules." While not inflexible, I try to adhere to them because 98.392 percent of the time they make life simpler and more sensible. For instance, Roberto's Rule #6 states, "Never try to teach a pig how to sing. It's a waste of your time and it annoys the pig."

    Roberto's Rule #17 states, "If after having described people's behavior, the speaker feels the need to say 'these people aren't crazy,' they probably are crazy."

    A while back someone asked me what precautions I had taken in case of an EMP blast or other collapse of the power grid. What would I do to take care of my son? What they had in mind was stockpiling freeze-dried food and water. What I had in mind was singing "Nearer my God to Thee" and looking forward to heaven. (Seriously, my son's palate is, shall we say, limited. Just starving together would be less trouble than trying to get him to eat this.)

  • Victory in Virginia

    The Washington Post reports that an abortion clinic here in Fairfax County, Virginia, has had its license suspended for "deficiencies" that include the following:

    "Inspectors observed dirty equipment, expired medication in unlocked cabinets, lax storage of medical records and a failure of staff to sterilize and maintain medical equipment and follow hand-washing protocols, according to a 52-page report.

    "In one case, a patient had to be rushed to a local emergency room for prolonged bleeding after sutures were not available at the clinic, the report says. In another, a nurse used a plunger to unstop a toilet and then held a patient’s hand during a surgical procedure without changing scrubs, according to the report."
  • Are Christians in a Culture War? Interview with Josh McDowell

    This goal of this blog is for me to soak up wisdom from my father and share it with you. I have been blessed to have an incredibly influential father, Josh McDowell. He has written over 150 books and spoken to more young people live than anyone in history. But what I appreciate most about my father is his love for my mom, for his kids, and now for his many grandkids. Enjoy!

  • The Worldview Behind 'The Jungle Book' Movie

    My entire family went to see "The Jungle Book" this past weekend. From my 3 ½-year old son, to my mother-in-law, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Disney is to be commended for making an engaging, creative, and faithful “live” version of this classic story.

    Like all fictional movies, "The Jungle Book" offers a story, which has worldview implications. Two questions lie at the heart of the movie: What does it mean to be human? And secondarily: How does man relate to nature? Specifically, these questions are explored through the life of Mowgli—a young boy whom wolves raise in the jungle.

  • The Final Push

    By this point in the academic semester, with summer just around the corner, many of us in school have hit the wall of end-of-semester stress. Assignments pile up. Papers, presentations, and exams invite us to believe our professors are conspiring against us, praying we fail out before the final day of class. This can easily begin to press into our faith in Christ, whether it be causing us to doubt Him, sacrifice our time with Him, or even curse Him for our current state.

    If you are at the breaking point: This is for you.
