The Boston Globe on Church Planting in “godless” Massachusetts

Yesterday, the Boston Globe published an interesting piece (with a sensationalistic title) on the growing number of evangelical church plants in the Boston area.

Faith in Faithless Fiction?

Regular readers of the Center for Gospel Culture know that we are fiction fans. Furthermore, we don’t shy away from grappling with contemporary fiction.
