The Common Life is a a multi-authored writing project aimed at exploring the profound depths of the Christian faith and presenting them in a way that is both challenging and accessible. Many of today’s resources are either too shallow to swim in or too deep for comfort. Our hope is that we can offer some meaningful whisper in the midst of a noisy polarized culture.
That said, our topics will be eclectic, ranging from gender identity to punk rock, from pacifism to experiencing God’s omnipresence. But no matter how wide-ranging, we hope that all of our subject matter will be helpful, thoughtful, and engaging.
