Real Raisings from the Dead or Fake News?

This is an excellent article from Craig Keener.

Not every claim to a miraculous raising today is authentic. Everywhere in the world, most people who die stay dead. Even those resuscitated miraculously, such as Lazarus, die again; all healing in our mortal bodies is by definition temporary.

Sometimes he continues to grant signs of the future, reminders of the resurrection hope that in him awaits us all.

The Economics of Arrival in two minutes

My friend Jeremy Williams has recently written a book (& rebranded his blog) on sustainable economics.

Can you sum up the whole of our book The Economics of Arrival in two minutes? I’d like to think not, or we could have saved ourselves a whole lot of time. But if you’ve been wondering what the book is about and whether it’s for you, this will give you a sense of its key messages.

How this guy runs in some of these places is beyond me. I’d be on my hands and knees (possibly trembling with fear).
