    by Christopher J. H. Wright

    ECPA Top Shelf Book Cover Award

    When the Israelites exclaimed, "Here are your gods!" at the sight of the golden calf, they were attempting to hold on to the God of their history while fashioning idols for their own purposes.

    Connecting with the Movement Shaping Our Culture

    by Efrem Smith and Phil Jackson
    Foreword by Bakari Kitwana and Alton B. Pollard III

    Hip-hop is here. The beats ring out in our cities. Hip-hop culture is all around us: in the clothes youth wear, in the music they listen to, in the ways they express themselves. It is the language they speak, the rhythm they move to. It is a culture familiar with the hard realities of our broken world; the generation raised with rap knows about the pain.

Indeed from Hume's day to ours, the vast majority of philosophical attacks against the rationality of theism have borne an unmistakable Humean aroma. The last forty years, however, have been marked by a resurgence in Christian ...
