Who Is Helping Christians Cope with Non-Christian Messages? Church and ministry leadership resources to better equip, train and provide ideas for today’s church and ministry leaders, like you. Get updates from Roger E. Olson delivered straight to your inbox Some years ago I felt called to use my four degrees in religious studies and (now) many years of teaching Christian theology to help Christians discern between cultural messages that are compatible with Christianity and those that are not. I have used this blog for that. In fact, that call is one of the main reasons I began this blog—about eight years ago now. I have composed and posted well over a thousand essays here and many of them have been about the problem we Christians face in a pluralistic culture that 1) contains many messages that are alien to and even hostile to authentic Christianity, and 2) is sometimes downright hostile to classical Christianity. This call and concern led me to write what I consider my most important book: Essentials of Christian Thought: Seeing Reality through the Biblical Story (Zondervan).
