  • BOOK REVIEW: 'Almost Christian'

    It's the only academic book I've read that nearly brought me to tears. "Almost Christian: What the Faith of Our Teenagers Is Telling the American Church" is at once a complex and emotional story. Its contents are often hard to grasp, but when you do get them, they grab you hard — as if you're in the grip of a mighty wrestler's headlock.

    DECKER: China's Diocletian

    Easter is a dangerous time to be a Christian in communist China. Holy Week - which commemorates the arrest, torture, crucifixion and eventual resurrection of Jesus Christ - witnessed an increase in government-directed violence and persecution against followers of Jesus. China's Communist Party cracks down on believers because trust in an all-powerful God undermines blind allegiance to the idea of an all-powerful state.

    EDITORIAL: Obama to Christians: Forget you

    President Obama delivered official messages for Passover, Ramadan and Diwali. But for Easter? Not so much. The White House came under fire this week for neglecting to issue official statements for either Easter or Good Friday, though Mr. Obama did take time Friday to address Earth Day, a celebration observed by tens of thousands of pagan worshippers of the earth goddess Gaia.
