spacer Today spring is in the air and explosions tore lives and property apart in Brussels. The contradiction seems too great to be possible and yet it is real. Beauty and brokenness that both stagger the imagination. Every worldview and religion agrees that something is wrong, but each proposes a different solution. It is an issue worth some careful reflection and conversation.

Ransom exists to try to encourage that sort of reflection and conversation. We hope you find our website stimulating even if you come to different conclusions. Some issues just can't be ignored. Thanks for visiting.
