Aljazeera does a great piece on Christianity and American Politics.  Watch both parts.  Steve Holt was upset with Tony Campolo’s endorsement of Hilary Clinton, but I guess I am still mystified by Tony and thought it wasn’t that big of a deal.  What stuck out to me the most was the substance in the questions and quality of reporting.  Maybe CNN and FOX News could give Aljazeera a holla to get some help in how to do religion pieces.

Phyllis Tickle on ‘A Crash Course in Jesus Studies.’  Are you as excited as I am that Phyllis is blogging more and that she has a new book coming out soon?
