Engaging Doubt for Clarity’s Sake spacer Engaging Doubt for Clarity’s Sake
BY: Denis Haack
Sound bites are not sufficient for making an adequate case for the faith, nor are easy arguments against unbelief convincing. A good way to demonstrate our conviction that non-Christians are made in God’s image is to search out and engage their most profound doubts and challenges to Christian faith.

Engaging New Atheists (2): Three Consolations on Reading Dawkins spacer Engaging New Atheists (2): Three Consolations on Reading Dawkins
BY: Fiona Grooms
In the space of 32 pages, Richard Dawkins summarily refutes, to his own satisfaction, two thousand years worth of arguments for the existence of God. For Christians who have read and been dismayed by Dawkins’ The God Delusion, I can offer three sorts of consolation.

Engaging New Atheists: Agreeing with Christopher Hitchens spacer Engaging New Atheists: Agreeing with Christopher Hitchens
BY: Denis Haack
Films like Fight Club (1999), Garden State (2004), Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), and The Golden Compass (2007) explicitly raise searching questions on perennial issues: the meaning of being human, the problem of evil, the need for significance, and the possibility of transcendence. At the same time and seemingly in sharp contrast, an impressive number of assertive—some would say aggressive or militant—voices are arguing that unbelief is the only possible option for thinking people today.

Engaging the Arts: Are You A Patron?: Discernment Exercise spacer Engaging the Arts: Are You A Patron?: Discernment Exercise
BY: Denis Haack
The arts, contrary to liberal ideology, cannot solve the deepest problems of the human race, nor, contrary to conservative ideology, are the arts luxuries unnecessary to existence. Made in the image of the Creator, human beings are inescapably creative.

spacer I am writing this on November 5th, the day after the mid-term election. Whether you are pleased by the results or unhappy about them, may I suggest a few things? The election is not the harbinger of either the national turn-around you have hoped for or the beginning of the apocalypse you have long dreaded. Democracy works only when good people compromise for the common good. And civility is essential--listening and speaking with care and kindness--if we are to have a national conversation that does not descend into shrill rhetorical posturing.

We don't concentrate on politics in Ransom because we believe that culture is prior to politics. So we try to think about and reflect on the perennial issues that seem to matter most. We hope you'll find the resources we've posted here helpful in that process. Thanks for visiting.
