I have, however, been blogging consistently for several years all while trying to do it with as much excellence as I know how.

Every month or so, I come across a news article or a new book that claims the evangelical movement is falling apart.

The “nones” are on the rise, secularism is the future, and Christianity will soon be powerless.
