Have you ever had anyone screw you over? I’m not talking about the high school-level gossip of someone you thought was your friend. I’m talking about someone taking something intensely personal and using it to hurt you. The...
I have been studying through the Book of Acts lately. It is one of my favorite books to study—so rich with history. It shows you the larval stage of Jesus’ Church on earth. It shows you the boldness of the early Christian...
I’m a big fan of Christian hip-hop. Some people find the notion of the genre to be somewhat of an oxymoron. Christian hip-hop? And I understand. Given that the urban church/urban Christian subculture tends to be 10-15 years...
I recently got into a lively “Tweet Off” with author Jackson Pearce about, of all things, the $45 million payout Conan O’Brien is receiving in order to exit The Tonight Show. The debate didn’t center around the recen...
The Christian Manifesto. We’re here to make Jesus’ name famous, to review Christian (and non-Christian) materials with a critical eye, and to provide interviews with dynamic voices within (and without) the Church. W...
At The Christian Manifesto we don’t insulate ourselves. We believe that all of Creation is charged with the grandeur of God. We’re just as comfortable reviewing and critiquing the creative work of Eminem as we are Steven Curtis Chapman. We won’t crucify an artist because he swears too much nor will we praise an artist simply because they make worship music. We won’t degrade an author because their writing is risqué or praise one because their main character is an Amish woman. We’ll say things in our blogs that buck the status quo and (possibly) raise your ire, all while believing that God is fully revealed in the person of Jesus. We will interview voices both inside and outside the Christian sphere, pulling no punches with either crowd.
We’re Christians. We’re reviewers. We’re bloggers. We’re interviewers. We’re a team, but we do not always agree with one another. We attempt to come by each identity honestly.
Welcome to The Christian Manifesto. We’re glad you could join us.
