In order to understand evangelical Christian culture one should read, study and pay attention to the themes from George Orwell in his classic novels.

The Wondering Eagle recently obtained the North Star Theological Vision for the Sojourn Network. This blog is preserving it due to how other material related to Daniel Montgomery has disappeared from the Sojourn Network.
