The 2014 Christianity Today Book AwardsChristianity Today

The Christianity Today book awards are always helpful for reading ideas.

Judge's Ruling Could Jeopardize NSA SurveillanceAndrew Cohen

Well, not shockingly, a federal judge rules on the NSA saying, "Surely, such a program infringes on 'that degree of privacy' that the Founders enshrined in the Fourth Amendment. Indeed, I have little doubt that the author of our Constitution, James Madison, who cautioned us to be aware 'the abridgment of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power,' would be aghast."

Indeed. As I wrote (calling for Christians to speak out) our Founding Fathers were a bit wiser regarding the dangers of government power.

Call Jesus (or Santa) white? Expect a big fightEdward J. Blum

Ed Blum gives more context on the White Jesus conversation.

Rev. Samuel Rodriguez is the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference. He was nominated by TIME Magazine as one of their "100 Most Influential People in The World" and was the keynote speaker at 40th anniversary commemorative service at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. Sammy joined me to discuss the Latino Reformation and his new book The Lamb's Agenda (Thomas Nelson, 2013). Don't forget to join me every Tuesday at 3:00 PM Eastern for The Exchange.
