In his new book, "What Good Is God?" evangelical author Philip Yancey asks, "Does belief in God really matter when life gets tough?" These and other questions and answers form the basis of his book and are the result of a near-fatal traffic accident Yancey experienced. Doctors told him he would not recover from his injuries and that he should say goodbye to his family and friends. Although Yancey survived, he continued to ask himself those same questions. For his book, he posed these questions to people who had undergone a similar experience of being "broken in body and in spirit," according to an interview with CNN, from former prostitutes in Thailand to members of an underground church in China.

As a youth, I was diagnosed with a stomach condition that eventually reshaped the way I see the world and forced me take things a little less for granted. This condition, in its early days, forced me to be hospitalized many times in order to get my health back on track. I've stayed in hospitals, from Childrens Hospital in Los Angeles to Verdugo Hills Hospital in the foothills. It's under control now, although I still have my bad days. But they are nothing like the punch-in-the-kidneys kind of flare-ups I've experienced in the past.

Q. The NBC television network has come under fire for omitting the words “under God” from a broadcast of the Pledge of Allegiance shown before the U.S. Open golf championship. The video montage of patriotic images including the American flag was dubbed with children reciting the Pledge — without the phrases “under God” and “indivisible.” A second showing of the video also left out the phrase “one nation.” NBC's omission has caused a storm of outrage, with demands for the people responsible for cutting the Pledge to be fired and calls for a campaign to boycott NBC shows and its advertisers springing up on social media and blogs.

"Now, I'm not big on blasphemy, but that last one made me laugh. " - Morgan Freeman as God in "Bruce Almighty" We are all guilty of doing it. You, sitting there, reading this right now. Me. Your brother, sister, father and mother. My co-workers, in the little corner of the newsroom in which I work, say it all the time. (In fact, a few were just let loose as I composed this paragraph.)

As a child, teenager and young woman, I recall gazing into the sky and feeling like something was missing from my life. It literally felt as if there was a hole that needed to be filled. As a young adult, before rededicating my life to Christ, I used to try to fill that void with relationships and even the party scene. That was before the Lord got a hold of my life at 20 and drastically changed the way I lived, felt and conducted my choices. That was a season when the emptiness I had was altered.

In the 12th Century, Peter of Damascus wrote, “...Then we should also marvel how demons and various diseases are dispelled by the sign of the precious and life-giving Cross, which all can make without cost or effort.” I never paid attention to the crucifix or the ritual of signing the cross. In March 1970, that changed after Sgt. Wolfgram signed the cross, praying, “God hide us from a superior enemy force hunting us.” North Vietnamese regulars walked right by us. We could smell the tobacco on their breath.

Q. An American evangelical group called the Cornwall Alliance has placed itself in the center of debate over the environment by taking a hard line against green groups. Using the Dominion Mandate — the verse in Genesis about God giving man dominion over all life on Earth — as its chief argument, the Cornwall Alliance is vehemently opposed to environmental groups, which it sees as being un-Christian and pagan, and which it has labeled the “Green Dragon.” A book by the alliance, “Resisting the Green Dragon: Dominion not Death,” reads in part, “[s]

Q. Brigham Young University recently suspended its star basketball center, Brandon Davies, for violating the college's strict Honor Code. Davies admitted to officials that he'd had pre-marital sex with his girlfriend, an Arizona State University freshman. Although he currently remains a student, there is still a chance the 19-year-old will be expelled from the school. He has publicly apologized to his teammates and fans. The Honor Code, which students are obligated to abide by, requires them to be honest, live a chaste and virtuous life, obey the law and all campus policies, use clean language, respect others, abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee and substance abuse, participate regularly in church services and observe a dress and grooming standard.
