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.

How Do I Know?

Bottom line: confidence in my transformation is not the source of my assurance. Rather, the source of my assurance comes from faith in Christ’s substitution.

Mom, Dad and Memorial Day

My parents met in Alaska during World War II.

Oh, the Places You'll Go!

I recently tweeted, “Travel every chance you have, to every place you can. After reading, it’s the best way to stay in school.” Many responded in one way or another with the following question: “Where are the best places to go?”

I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

And he has made me glad.

Our Fickleness, His Faithfulness

We may fail a thousand times … but our God cannot fail, not even once.

Dress to Impress

My wife is reading a biography of Amy Carmichael who among other things was a missionary

Well-Disguised Mercies

Today's mercies are for today's burdens.

God and Sandy (2013)

When faced with tragedies such as the tornadoes in Oklahoma, people tend to ask, "Where was God?" This blog was originally released following hurricane Sandy in 2012.

Hymn Stories: Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah

If Isaac Watts is known as the father of English hymnody, William Williams (1717-1791) is considered by many to be the father of Welsh hymnody.

When You Are Tempted to Doubt

When you are tempted to doubt your salvation, remember God’s faithfulness.

How Blessed We Already Are

If only we had eyes to see what God has done for us.

The Church Without _______

I'm generally not a big fan of bumper stickers, of advertising platitudinous tweets or angry opinions with my vehicle. But this one caught my attention.

Remember the Infertile Too
