“But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was…”

Luke 10:33

Two men.

One the victim of robbers and unfortunate circumstance; the other going about his day-to-day business.  They had no prior knowledge of each other and, as far as we know, no subsequent meeting.  But in the decision of the Samaritan to throw a wrench in his routine and tend to the needs of a stranger, grace was born and Christ’s love became visible.  And that is what I hope Samaritan’s Song will be: a place where those who require grace will find it, those who wish to share love can offer it, and where Christ might be known and understood.

I am a scholar and a writer and a Christian; this blog is the mingling of those three life-threads.  For more on my background, see this post.  You can expect to find Bible studies here and short devotional pieces.  There’s a place to talk about music and a place to talk about books; there’s a place where you can pray, and ask to be prayed for.  Oh, and if you’re on Twitter, say hi: I’m @samarisong

If you’re a believer, welcome.

If you’re a believer of another faith, welcome.

If you’re not a believer, welcome.

May you come in peace and leave in peace.

    1. I do love apologetics & pop theology too: Philip Yancey and C.S. Lewis remain some of my absolute favorite authors of all time. (I have also taught Strobel and Ravi Zacharias to small groups before and enjoyed it enormously). I haven’t considered reviewing movies – I don’t watch enough – but have 2 book reviews on books about Christianity and introversion that I will be posting soon!
