But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Review: Lila

Written by

imageI’ve got two hypotheses about this well-written book. Both are bracing, and both very clearly reflect my own worldview. If any reader doesn’t share that (Christian, biblicist) worldview, I still welcome any wisdom you can provide to help me decide between my two hypotheses.
