About Us

Real. Clear. True.

We host thoughtful and gracious discussions that clarify topics of theology, philosophy, politics, ministry, culture, and life.

  • Real: We address issues of cultural and personal significance that help Christians engage in the public sphere. We write about real and relevant issues we’re actually considering, dealing with, and thinking about. We may disagree from time to time, but we’ll be kind and charitable towards each other and the views we address.
  • Clear: We emphasize clarity of thought to nurture right thinking about reality. We endeavour to play a role in creating intelligent, thoughtful, warm-hearted Christians who wear Christ attractively.
  • Theology: We begin with the conviction that the Bible is our final authority in life and thought, and therefore ours is a faith seeking understanding. Our contributors are followers of Jesus Christ who are committed to the authority of the Bible and the ministry of the local church.
