“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

This blog post requires an hour and ten minutes of your time. Sorry about that. Below is a YouTube link to a play called "Socrates Meets Jesus" taken from a 2002 book of the same name by Peter Kreeft. The play was written by Kevin O'Brien and delivered by an amateur theatre group in Worcester, Massachusetts, at a 2013 conference of the American Chesterton Society. 

From the video: After reading the Bible Socrates says he is surprised by the name of God: I AM, That I AM. (Exodus 3.14)

"That name seemed very special to me. ... When He is telling his name He is telling us his identity, His nature. He is 'Being' itself -- "AM", as well as personhood "I" -- I AM. That revelation to Moses was utterly unique and unpredictable."
