Three Christians, teachers, and intellectuals gather digitally to hold forth on literature, theology, philosophy, and other things human beings do well. Taking the question at hand utterly seriously and ourselves not at all, the Christian Humanists attempt to record weekly during the school year and take on some interesting questions. Our website, should you wish to visit us, is http://www.christianhumanist.org, and our email is thechristianhumanist@gmail.com.
