On the Church

by David Robinson and Joe Boot and Michael Thiessen and P. Andrew Sandlin and Ryan Eras

February 21, 2020

The church has a significant, but not ultimate, role to play in the life of the believer, in the culture, and in the Kingdom of God.

 

Cultural Theology

by Andrew Sandlin and Jeremy Johnston and Joe Boot and Peter Jones and Ryan Eras

September 25, 2019

Cultural theology is the discipline of understanding what God’s Word says about culture, and applying that understanding to those various cultural spheres. Cultural theology is an approach that aims to get to the root of all human activity by examining the god concept at work in a particular cultural sphere.

 

Error and Heresy

by David Robinson and Jacob Reaume and Joe Boot and Ryan Eras and Samuel Sey

April 19, 2019

The articles in this issue of Jubilee represent some of the most pressing and high-profile theological controversies that Western Christians are facing today. As the authors show, the errors found in these doctrines are not new, but are rather updated expressions of old heresies.

 

Science and Origins

by Andrew Sandlin and Gordon Wilson and Joe Boot and Willem J. Ouweneel

February 25, 2019

Our understanding of the first chapters of Genesis has implications for the way we understand the rest of Scripture. And very real, practical matters are caught up in how we answer this question. What is a human being? What is God? How should we think about caring for the natural world? How should we treat our neighbour? How should we treat our dinner? Our starting point has a great deal to say about where we end up.

 

Film & TV

by Brian Mattson and Colin Harbinson and David Robinson and Marcus Pittman and Ryan Eras

September 7, 2018

As Christians we believe in the Lordship of Christ over all of history – including the history of communications – that God is working in and through historical events and persons to accomplish his eternal purposes which can never be thwarted (Job 42:2).

 

Worldview

by Douglas Wilson and Joe Boot and P. Andrew Sandlin and Ryan Eras and Willem J. Ouweneel

April 16, 2018

Our worldview has deep, far-reaching meaning for the things we do every day, for the kind of person we become, and the kind of world we create. An idolatrous worldview will lead to further idolatry, while submission to the Word of God as the source of the one true and faithful worldview will mean light and life and flourishing.

October 30, 2017

Canada’s 150th

by Andre Schutten and Joe Boot and Michael Wagner and Ryan Eras and Steven Martins

June 26, 2017

A godly, rightly-ordered sense of patriotism is one mark of rightly-ordered affections. As Canadians celebrate our sesquicentennial, let us do so in a spirit of full and everlasting joy, knowing that Canada, like all nations and kingdoms, is under the righteous rule of King Jesus.

 

Trailblazers – Christian Biography and Testimony

by Ben House and James K. A. Smith and Joe Boot and R.A. Sheats

April 17, 2017

The stories, testimonies and profiles of our godly forebears are a powerful and direct link to the past, allowing us to see major historical events and eras through the eyes of those who lived through and participated in them. Such a unique perspective serves not only to enlarge our understanding of history, it also provides insight into the character of these men and women we study. It is instructive for us to consider particularly the impact of some of those saints of old who were concerned with building a godly social order. There are valuable lessons to be learned from the lives of these trailblazing figures.

 

Money & Economics

by Andrew Sandlin and Brian Mattson and Joe Boot and Tim Dieppe

January 3, 2017

God in His Word has much to say about money and economic issues, and the ways that we produce and use it. There are many perspectives among Christians concerning this issue. What is the biblical way to think about money on a personal and societal level? How should we understand money in light of the kingdom of God? What does a responsible, godly attitude towards wealth look like?

 

Islam

by Belteshazzar and Joe Boot and Marvin Albert and Ryan Eras and Tony Costa

August 21, 2016

Islam has positioned itself as a correction and completion of Judaism and Christianity. However, Islam and the Quran are incompatible with Christian doctrine and the text of Scripture. The church must take the growth of Islam seriously; it is a movement and a worldview that is as political as it is religious, with significant implications for culture and society. As heralds of the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are entrusted with delivering the good news of the gospel to Muslims, to declare freedom in Christ from slavery to sin, and to present Christ, not sinful man, as the sovereign King who rules justly and righteously.
