When Christianity Became Cool – Gene Veith: “The 1970s was a time of hippies, free love, psychedelic drugs, and cultural revolution. But it was also a time of major religious revival, with the ‘Jesus Movement’ gaining headway in that very counter-culture. How could that be? Baylor professor Philip Jenkins credits the Byrds, who popularized a recovery of American roots music, much of which is explicitly Christian.”

An Amazing Find – “As the Toledo Blade reports, when Karl Kissner and his cousins were clearing out his grandfather’s home in Defiance, Ohio, on Feb. 29 they came across a box of very rare and very valuable baseball cards.” Three million dollars’ worth…
