In this age of terrorism, where does your mind go when you see someone who looks like a Muslim? Have you noticed how your body shifts? Do you find you...
After allegations that recent migrants assaulted young women at a Swedish music festival -- and that Swedish police covered it up -- Swedish asylum seekers are sharing fears of a backlash.
A careful study of the first caliphate (632-661 C.E.) demonstrates that the ISIS caliphate launched by Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi in Iraq is a non-starter...
What is the effluvium spurting from that white head? It's Trumple's economically and socially illiterate assertion that minorities and immigrants are the cause of income disparity in this country.
Interpretations of law, whether religious or secular, are always influenced by specific historical and cultural contexts. To drive this point home, I asked my students to reflect on the mindset that has developed in America after Sept. 11, which is comparable to the one during the Mamluk period. In such crisis-ridden circumstances, ordinarily peace-loving people will clamor for military retaliation against a ruthless violent enemy that threatens to annihilate them.
What if reverence toward God and standards of respectful human communication are irretrievably lost? And what if awe and reverence are lost at a time when some sense of the Holy in the religions, toward nature and in human interactions, merits retrieval?

What I find most distressing about Wheaton is not its generally obnoxious vapidity. What I find so distressing about Wheaton is its hubris. What sheer and utter arrogance it is to fire a professor for giving an opinion that has been echoed by numerous theologians, including its most famous alumnus, Billy Graham.
Many in the Western world believe that the Muslim response to terrorist acts perpetuated by outfits like ISIS in the name of Islam is a 'reactionary' response. That's false.
Professor Hawkins has stumbled upon another of those theological landmines in the evangelical world: a belief that is rarely mentioned, widely held, little considered, and provokes a fight as soon as it surfaces.
My British wife worries that our five-year-old talks too much about Trump -- in particular, that the teachers in his pre-school might conclude that we are Trump supporters, which, for the record, we are not.
