  • Bach sacred cantata – Erschallet, ihr Lieder, erklinget, ihr Saiten! BWV 172

    Bach wrote this cantata, while in Weimar, on May 20, 1714, for Pentecost Sunday. The libretto is based on John 14:23–31. It is one of my very favorite Bach cantatas! The work is in six movements, and scored for four vocal soloists, four-part choir, three trumpets, timpani, oboe, bassoon and a string orchestra of two […]

  • The Righteous Brothers

    The soul group The Righteous Brothers is my favorite group/duo from the 1960s. Dubbed “blue-eyed soul”, their music touched millions and still does to this day. Known for their passionate soul music featuring fantastic harmonizing between Bobby Hatfield (blond hair) who was a countertenor and Bill Medley (dark hair) who is a bass/baritone. Sadly, Bobby […]

  • The Closing of the Evangelical Mind?

    “The scandal of the evangelical mind is that there is not much of an evangelical mind.” So begins Mark Noll’s The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, published nearly 30 years ago in 1994. What Noll calls “an epistle from a wounded lover” landed as a bombshell in the 1990s that has continued to reverberate in the […]

  • 25 qualities of unbelief and faith

    The following is “25 qualities of unbelief and faith” by John Bunyan. Faith believeth the Word of God; but unbelief questioneth the certainty of the same (Ps. 106:24).
