    I haven't really talked about heaven at all on this blog, but I have to say I've been skeptical for quite some time about how the concept is commonly perceived. And then along comes theological heavy-hitter N. T. Wright with a new book called How God Became King: The Forgotten Story of the Gospels, which sounds like it will add some serious academic credibility to my gut instinct. I haven't read it yet, but it's

    I promise I had nothing to do with this. Neither did my LEGO-obsessed son Huw. It was was created by designer Mihai Mihu. If that name isn't already cool enough, check out the detailed photos on his Flickr page. The project took about a year to complete. Thanks to Tom Whaley, our motion graphics designer, for pointing this

    In case you've never heard of it, the Wild Goose Festival is a three-day event in Shakori Hills, NC, which describes itself as:
    a community creating a festival at the intersection of justice, spirituality and art. The first festival took place in June 2011; the next one is June 21-24 2012. We take inspiration from many places, such as Greenbelt, Burning Man, the Iona Community, SXSW, and others. The festival is open to everyone; we don’t censor what can be said; we invite

    A while back it occurred to me that I should always be suspicious of a theology that arises from the suburbs of North America, because its comfortable surroundings is bound to have a distorting effect. But then I heard the voice of one of my mentors saying that when we feel the boat tipping in one direction, the natural human tendency is to run to the opposite side. So I probably shouldn’t put any more faith in a theology that arises from the dusty shantytowns of Soweto, because the conditions of deprivation are bound to have a distorting effect. No matter

    Summer is nearly here, which means the theatrical release of Hellbound? is only a few months away. As we put the finishing touches on the film, we're also ramping up efforts to raise awareness about Hellbound? and get people excited to see it this fall. In addition to the usual marketing channels, this summer my co-producer David Rempel and I will be hitting the road to promote the film at various festivals across the United States. Our first confirmed stops include:

    Dear Huw, Gretchen, Zeph and Lark, I know people have been saying all sorts of things about me lately, and you're probably pretty confused. So I thought I'd ask a few questions to help clear things up: If I'm not going to punish you for the rest of your life, why bother obeying me? If I'm not going to punish you for the rest of your life, why bother helping your brother or sister when they're in need? If I'm not going to punish you for the rest of your life, why bother forgiving your brother or sister if they hurt you? If I'm not

    In a blog post written last summer (but recently dredged up by Nick Ahern), Baptist theologian Roger Olson asks how serious a heresy universalism is. He goes on to unpack different kinds of universalism, arguing that some forms of universalism are an egregious error, while other forms are simple errors--and that everyone has some sort of simple errors in their theology. I'll let you sort that out for yourself. What I want to address is something else he says toward the beginning of the piece:
    I would have to wonder how a God of

    When Han Solo rides out of Echo Base in search of Luke Skywalker near the beginning of the Empire Strikes Back, his last words to those who question the wisdom of his actions are, "Then I'll see you in hell!" Of course, this begs the question of whether or not there is a hell within the Star Wars cosmology and, if so, what is it like? Thankfully, someone has put some thought into this vexing question. You can read his musings here. Incidentally, this isn't the only time Han uses the word "hell." True Star Wars
