Colbert Show Video

I wanted to share a couple of video clips from the Colbert Report. Now, typically, fundamentalist Baptists aren't Colbert's biggest fans, and, really, I think it's hidden somewhere that the SBC doesn't much approve of anything on the Comedy Channel. And there are some good reasons for that. Colbert, however, is quite sharp, and worth the occasional check-in. I think he's better than Jon Stewart, because it seems to me Colbert skewers both sides of a debate equally. He did, however, have a great interview with Bart Ehrman, and another good one with Queen Noor.

Bart Ehrman is supposedly a theologian. However, to make the job easier, he has decided that you can't really know anything about God, which means you can't pick on a theologian for just, well, making it up as he goes....



Her Majesty, Queen Noor, is the widow of the late King Hussein of Jordan. When he passed away and King Abdullah II and Queen Rania took the reins of the Hashemite Kingdom, Queen Noor needing something to pour her energy into. She was on Colbert the other day, talking about some of it. And since Colbert's funny, although sometimes irreverent, and he's also quite sharp, I thought it would be good to share their exchange:

Now, who seems to have a better head on their shoulders?

And isn't good Queen Noor is a good sport? Or would Colbert not have a head at all?

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: By the Waters of Babylon

Worship. It is what the church does as we strive to honor God with our lips and our lives. And then, many churches argue about worship. I have about a half-dozen books on my shelf about worship, but adding Scott Aniol’s By the Waters of Babylon to the shelf has been excellent.

First of all, Aniol’s work is not based on solving a musical debate. While that branch of worship is often the most troublesome in the local church, By the Waters of Babylon takes a broader view. The starting point is the place of the church. That place is a parallel of Psalm 137, where the people of God, Israel, found themselves in a strange land. The people of God, again, find themselves in a strange land.
Second, in summary, the book works logically to the text of Scripture, primarily Psalm 137 but well-filled with other passages. Then it works outward from how the text addresses the problems submitted in the first chapter into how worship, specifically corporate worship, should look in the 21st century Weste…
