"Hostility to Hospitality..." Review

In this extended book review of Hostility to Hospitality: Spirituality and Professional Socialization within Medicine published in the Christian Journal for Global Health, ISCAST President, Alan Gijsbers, summarises and critiques an important book exploring the need for a larger place for spirituality in the delivery of health care.

He agrees with the need but critiques some of reasons put forward to meet that need. For Alan the secular world need not be a hostile place for spirituality, but it calls for wisdom and winsomeness in the way we promote the gospel. 

Review of "Going 'Green'—Forests, Fire and a Flawed Conservation Culture," by Mark Poynter

This review, by ISCAST fellow Ian Hore-Lacy, affirms Mark Poynter's view about Australian forest management that "culpable high-level ignorance threatens not just forestry but the forests themselves." According to Ian, this "begs for fuller attention by those concerned with stewardship of God’s creation in its providential aspects for human beings." 

John Ortberg on boiling kettles and remodeled apes

ISCAST readers who were around in 2017 might remember Michael Smith's review of How I Changed My Mind about Evolution.  (You can find the review here)

For those who didn't get to read the book itself, or would perhaps like to revisit some of the ideas explored therein, the Science and Belief website has published an excerpt by John Ortberg, titled "Boiling kettles and remodeled apes."
