I heard Ravi Zaccarias on the radio this weekend. He was explaining the term, "apple of my eye". He said that it is literally translated, "little maiden of my eye"--the idea being we are so close to God that we see our reflection glistening in his eye. That idea of God's acceptance--of my own image, dancing in his eyes, was like a fresh breath of God's grace all over again. Thanks for reminding us of this truth of our acceptance in Christ. I marvel that not only does God accept losers, He rejoices over us with singing. Zeph. 3:17

I read Prothero's book last summer and thought it was exceptionally well done. Evangelicals have much to learn from this kind of historiography that looks not only at church history per se but also pop culture, media studies, world religions, etc. in parallel.

Welcome to CGO

  • Welcome to Common Grounds Online. Readers of Common Grounds have suggested a website to continue the explorations they began in the book. In keeping with the interactions of Professor MacGregor, Brad, Lauren and Jarrod, the theme of this site is ‘learning and living the Christian story.’

    I have invited friends, and a few friends of friends, to communicate aspects of the Christian story that have been significant in their own lives. We’re all trying to find joy and pleasure in this life and the next, but often we forfeit the joy that could be ours by living out foolish, competing scripts. What distinguishes Common Grounds Online Contributors is not our own goodness, achievement or service, but rather the recognition of our need of God’s grace abounding in our lives.
