Coram Deo ~

Looking at contemporary culture from a Christian worldview


Coram Deo is Latin for “before the face of God.” It carries the notion of our living under the gaze of God to the honor and glory of God.

Dr. R.C. Sproul writes that Coram Deo “literally refers to something that takes place in the presence of, or before the face of, God. To live Coram Deo is to live one’s entire life in the presence of God, under the authority of God, to the glory of God.” Watch this 2 minute video for a great explanation.  My wife and I chose that name for a church newsletter we started publishing in September, 1998. That newsletter, which was published monthly until the end of 2013, started as two sheets of paper (four pages), and included an article from our lead pastor, movie, book and music reviews, as well as church specific information. Eventually, the newsletter would reach 30 pages each month, and also be available online. In January 2014 we transitioned fully to a non-church specific blog format.

Our focus today remains true to our original vision of looking at culture from a Christian worldview. Our areas of focus are:

  • Book, music and movie reviews.
  • Sharing helpful links and quotes that I enjoy and that I think you will enjoy as well.
  • An emphasis on integrating our faith and our work (or vocations).

While I may be the primary blogger, there will be contributions from my wife, Tammy, who does all of the behind the scenes work to make the blog look so good.

We appreciate you reading the blog and please let us know what you think and how we can make the blog better and more useful to you.
