‘Christian vs. Almost Christian Fantasy’ (2015)

Maybe this year I’ll find some really great, current, Christian fantasy to review.


I have to be careful about going into the theology shop, because I’m not a theologian, I might break something.

But a demon-hunting hit squad? If that seems a familiar motif, it’s from a book called Pax Demonica about “a demon-hunting soccer mom.” I know, I know–but really, it wasn’t as bad as it sounds. But the theology was way, way off.

Is it really necessary to warn anyone that learning Christian doctrine from paperback novels is probably not a good idea?

Well, it’ll make an interesting defense on Judgment Day. “But Lord! I was only doing what was trending!”

‘Who’s a Bad Christian?’ (2016)

I thought this piece was worth revisiting. A lot has happened in the two years since it was first posted: but nothing has happened to make it out of date.


And now, because the landlord has had five or six months to fix the problem with the laundry machines in our basement, but hasn’t, I have to go to the laundromat.

I’ll have an important post for you this afternoon, though. Mustn’t rush through it this morning.
