When God Calls You to Discomfort

Was July the 'Hottest Month on Record?' Who Cares?

World Climate Change Conference 2015 (COP21)

Mainstream media the world over breathlessly report that scientists say July 2016 was the "hottest" month in the global temperature record stretching back to 1880 (or as CNN wrongly reported, "ever")! And future Julys will only become hotter! Repent, the end is near!

Dalit protest

For more than a month now the swell of the Dalit (sometimes called "untouchables") uprising has grown across India. Riots stir main streets and town centers; protesters clash with police; and a war of words has begun, with India's prime minister, Narendra Modi, locked in everyone's bull's eye.

The Sadness of Progressives Who Want Resegregation

Wallace Henley Portrait

Having lived through the Wallace era, and, as a young Birmingham newspaper reporter covering him and his exploitation of the race issue to advance his political interests, it was distressing to read recently of college students announcing they wanted roommates of their race only.

Aleppo Boy Omran Daqneesh: What Are We Doing for These Precious Kids?

aleppo boy

Perhaps you've seen the picture of Omran Daqneesh, the five-year-old little boy pulled from the rubble and placed into an ambulance, following an airstrike in Aleppo, Syria. I stared at the photo for a long time. And I watched the footage – just barely over a minute (before clicking, know that it's graphic) – of the rescue worker placing him in that chair. Rather than crying in fear or from pain, he stared calmly at the cameras, likely disoriented and in shock.

Ben-Hur

Before an illustrious line of Ben-Hurs — played by Ramon Novarro in 1925, Charlton Heston in 1959, and now Jack Huston in 2016 — graced the big screen, the character of Judah Ben-Hur was crafted in Lew Wallace's 1880 novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ.

Raising Good Kids in a Crazy World

Marina Slayton

My Advice to Ryan Lochte and Myself

Ryan Lochte

'Ben-Hur:' The Incredible Story Behind the Movie

Ben Hur

A remake of Ben-Hur movie is about to hit the movie screens. What's fascinating to me is the story behind the book, which has also inspired two previous movies — the 1925 silent version and the 1959 movie-of-the-year, starring Charlton Heston. That version won 11 Oscars, more than any other movie before it and has only since been tied by Titanic (1997).

Ask Chuck: Refinancing vs. Recasting a Home Mortgage

Chuck Bentley

Dear Chuck, My husband and I own a home and are trying to decide if we should change our mortgage to get in better financial health.

A Modern Epidemic of Control Freaks

Pastor Rick McDaniel

On May 9 in Yellowstone National Park a father and son saw a baby bison, decided it looked cold and needed to be rescued. The high temperature that day was 50 degrees and the low was 39. They transported the bison calf in the back of their Toyota Sequoia to a ranger station.
