What is Mockingbird?

Top Blog Posts / Reading/Viewing/Listening

Welcome to the Mockingbird website!

Mockingbird is an organization devoted to “connecting the Christian faith with the realities of everyday life”. This site is one of our chief venues for doing so. We also publish books and magazines, host conferences, and distribute podcasts.

We think of mbird.com as an ever-growing catalog of the ways in which a Christian understanding of reality – what people are like, what God is like, and how the two intersect – is borne out around us. This looks different every day. One minute we’re talking about parenting, the next pop music, the next religious history. Sometimes we’re simply being ridiculous.

We have done our best to make sure there is something for everyone, so if you don’t find something of interest immediately, click around our archives, listen to a recording, peruse our publications. We’re glad you found us. Grace abounds.

Still Confused?

There’s tons more information on our History and Frequently Asked Questions pages. But for the uninitiated, here’s a taste of our “greatest hits”, broken down by subject (followed by a list of some recommended reading/listening):
