Having Coffee With God December 21, 2012
Imagine if God were an actual being, a perfect companion who could grasp your hands, give you advice, and offer you total, unconditional love. For about a quarter of Americans – many of whom are Evangelical Christians – a vivid, intimate connection with God is the goal of spiritual experience. And thinking about God in this way isn't always easy. It takes imagination, discernment, and above all, faith. From April 2012.

Unholy Alliance? Christian and Jewish Zionists December 21, 2012
It’s clear why many Jews support Zionism. That’s the movement to support the Jewish state of Israel, the ancient homeland of the Jews. What’s not so clear is why another group wants the same thing – Evangelical Christians. Max Blumenthal explains how two groups, driven by seemingly contradictory theologies, have become political allies. From March 2012.
