I’m writing this just over a week after the galling attack on Israel by Hamas terrorists from Gaza. Many ask me if I have friends in Israel who I am praying for – absolutely! Others ask me if I have an opinion on the conflict. Obviously I see it as a sickening act of terrorism […]
Just today I had a lovely zoom conversation with a woman who wanted to talk through some difficult issues with me – tough biblical passages, what are Christians supposed to do with observing the Torah, etc, etc. She wrote me an email asking if she could talk to me for an hour, and insisted on […]
Those of you who have been following my blog have read that in the past few years I’ve been working with a brilliant Old Testament scholar, Rev. Dr. Milly Maturu Erema, a Ugandan professor with fascinating cultural insights on the biblical world that come from her East African background that resembles the Ancient Near East […]
I recently posted a reflection on Isaiah 32, which reveals a gorgeous vision of what Christ’s messianic kingdom will be like.

You’ve actually heard me quote her several times in my books, along with other Africans and Asians who I consult for their non-Western perspective.
