Even the least traveled among us understands that there are such things as cultural "no-nos" that one would be wise to avoid. Wearing a Los Angeles Lakers jersey in South Boston would be one example (albeit a commendable and heroic one to be sure). In the world of American evangelicalism, one of the most offensive […]

"Eschatology… precedes everything," writes Rev. Jason Stellman in the preface to Dual Citizens. Life on earth can only be understood through the lens of what lies beyond: we can understand the past and present only in light of God's promises for the future.
