  Several years ago the “big thing” in the Christian world was the WWJD movement.

He had his proofs and they are strong enough to stand without being a bit snarky (though that may just be enthusiasm on his part, but it is hard to tell from just reading.). He was speaking to the choir in regards to me and it was quite good to read a book that is filled with great research/5.
