From Chalcedon’s Archive: I Review a Very Weird Book

Chalcedon published this review last year. In retrospect, I think Heaven Breaks In, by Nicholas Cappas, is one of the oddest books I’ve ever read.

I mean, the college setting of this book is so far out, it’s just about extraterrestrial.

We want to regain cultural ground for Christ’s Kingdom, we want to win it back–and that means our “Christian fiction” has to be at least as good, and preferably better than, as the stuff cooked up by secular writers. The label “Christian” should not be used as an excuse for inferior quality!

As I learn to find my way around Chalcedon’s new website (www.chalcedon.edu/resources), I’ll try to get readers to follow me there. This blog is the child of Chalcedon, and I hope the kid has grown enough to help Ma and Dad around the house.

For those of you who are more tech-savvy than I am (that would be just about everybody), the new Chalcedon site is a treasure trove–videos, podcasts, chapel services (also posted on Facebook), interviews, Q&A sessions. I hope you have time to sample its wares. And let me know, if you have something you’d like me to pass on to the management.
