In July of 2010, Dr. Steve Harper launched the Oboedire site to provide a multi-faceted perspective on Christian spiritual formation. Since then, he has written on a host of topics.
They are listed alphabetically in the “Categories” section on the righthand sidebar. You may access them at any time. To read a particular theme, open the topic and scroll down to the first entry, and then scroll upward to read subsequent posts in the order in which they are written.
The most recent theme is “The Prophetic Task.” Drawing from the writings of Dr. Walter Brueggemann, Steve writes about the need to challenge “the principalities and powers” which substitute “the kingdoms of this world” for the Kingdom of God. We are living through a time when this substitution is particularly acute, problematic, and threatening to the ways of God. To read this series, scroll down to the introductory article (October 16, 2017) and then read upward to the final post on January 15, 2018.
Oboedire is currently “in hybernation,” with possible future series in production. When a new series commences, it will be announced at least a week in advance on the Oboedire home page. If you are a subscriber, you will get these announcements and all future posts automatically.
To subscribe, go to the righthand sidebar and enter your email into the “Sign Me Up” box.
In addition to the blogs, you can find out about Steve’s books. Go to the righthand sidebar and tap the “My Books” link.
And remember, Oboedire grows as you share particular posts on your social media, and as you let others know about the site. Thanks for helping spread the word about Oboedire.
Most importantly, pray for Steve, asking God to inspire and guide him as he writes. Pray too that those who read these posts will grow in grace and be formed into increasing Christlikeness.
