The Pastor's Family

I admit it: I sometimes grow weary of hearing about all the challenges faced by pastors and pastors’ wives and pastors’ kids. Is a pastor’s vocation really so different from any other?

When God Says To Get Drunk

Solomon asks, “Why should you be intoxicated, my son, with a forbidden woman and embrace the bosom of an adulteress?” We are called (commanded even) to a different kind of intoxication.

What Pornography Will Cost the Church

What do we, as Christians, stand to lose if so many of our young men continue to spend their teens and twenties in the pursuit of pornographic pleasure?

Redoubling Failing Efforts

Left to ourselves we look for salvation anywhere and everywhere except in the place it can be found—in Jesus Christ.

The Book Glutton

It is not sinful to throw away a book. Free yourself to throw away bad books. And when I say to throw them away, I mean it.

We Are All Virgins Now

Virginity matters because sexual purity matters because God says it matters. But it is not the highest of virtues.

Real Men Cry

It’s been the message I’ve received from all around: “Real men don’t cry. Not in public, anyway.” It’s pride, I’m sure. Pride that flows out of believing a lie.

So You Want To Sin, Do You?

So you want to sin, do you? I get that. I’ve been there. I've been there today. And yesterday. And the day before. But can I beg just 5 minutes of your time?

10 Ways To Resist The Devil

“Resist the devil and he will flee from you,” says James 4:7. The question is, though, how do we do this?

12 Ways To Preserve Christian Unity

Satan's great plan is to cause Christians to divide, to be bitter and jealous, and ultimately to “bite and devour one another” (Gal. 5:15). Here are twelve ways that you can repulse Satan’s attacks.

Love Into Light

This book is a powerful, biblical, compassionate look at a moral issue that represents a great opportunity for the church.

8 Ways Satan Convinces You To Question Your Salvation

Here are eight ways in which Satan keeps Christians in a sad, doubting, questioning, condition.

When Dancing Turns to Mourning

I'm surrounded by Bibles and I say, “I’m tired. I don’t feel like it. It all feels the same. It just doesn’t seem exciting today.” My dancing has turned into mourning, my celebrating into complaining.

The Joy of Not Sinning

If God has the ability to immediately remove all of a Christian’s sin the very moment he puts his faith in Jesus Christ, why didn’t He?

8 Ways Satan Keeps You From Worship

Satan wants to keep you from worshiping the One he hates. Which of these temptations is the one Satan brings to you?

Not By Sight

"Not By Sight" is a book about walking by faith. It is a book I will ask my son to read this summer along with his devotions; he, at thirteen, will be able to read and understand it and will certainly benefit from it. It is a book you should consider reading as well.

Satan Wants to Help You

Satan wants to help you—to help you sin. He is hell bent on taking you to hell with him. Thomas Books, in his book Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices, drew up a list of the devices Satan uses to draw you—yes you!—to sin. Here are six of them...

Glimpses of Grace

In her book, "Glimpses of Grace," Gloria uses both precision and grace as she shows that the good news, when properly understood and carefully applied, must transform the way a woman carries out the task the Lord has given her.

The Purposes of the Heart

I want to do the right things. I want to do the right things for the right reasons. In fact, I want to do the best things for the best reasons, the highest things for the highest reasons. Sometimes I know I do this. Sometimes I know I don’t. Most of the time I’m just not sure.

The Circle Maker (review)

I admire Batterson's desire to pray boldly and love his call to more prayer, better prayer, more audacious prayer. Yet so much of what he teaches is sub-biblical, extra-biblical or just plain unbiblical.
