Awesome Christian Advice From a Hardcore Atheist

Daniel Dennett is a hardcore atheist. He is also a philosopher and scientist, but for the purposes of this piece, I am thinking of him primarily in terms of his staunch atheism.

The Self-Centred Gospel of Glennon Doyle Melton

The book of Jude is one of the most interesting in the New Testament.
