8 Reasons for the Media Blackout on Kermit Gosnell

We are accustomed to 24/7 news coverage of tragedies involving child killings. Not so with Dr. Gosnell. Here are the reasons why:

4 Things to Remember During Unwelcome Work

The truths you learn in the valleys keep your feet steady on the mountaintops. There is a time for everything – even unwelcome work. Look for the hidden blessings.

Jesus is On the "Wrong Side of History"

A fictional conversation from the first century A.D.

Easter Meditations

We need more than a shoulder to cry on. We need more than hands and feet that will take the nails that we deserve. We need the strong arms of a Savior who comes back from the dead.

Read the Fine Print Before Supporting “Marriage Equality”

Those of us who continue to advocate for the traditional definition of marriage are painted as mean-spirited and regressive. Still, informed citizens ought to consider the implications of overhauling one definition of marriage and replacing it with another.

Jesus Gives Us an Identity, Not Just a Task

Witnessing cannot be reduced to one aspect of a Christian’s activity. It should be seen as the foundational aspect of a Christian’s identity.

Evangelism: "Go and Wait" Precedes "Go and Tell"

Underscoring the importance of the Holy Spirit, Jesus didn't first say “go and tell,” but “go and wait.” We set the sail, but God sends the wind.

How Does Christianity Grow? Lessons from Rodney Stark

We ought to see Stark's book as an examination of the means God used to fulfill his purposes. A sociological approach should not be set against a supernatural approach. Understanding these human elements will help us make some points of application for society.

The Rise of Christianity: A Summary of Rodney Stark’s Proposal

Later, I’ll offer some points of application for today’s church. Right now, I’m curious as to which of these contributions to the rise of early Christianity surprises you.

Don’t Privatize Your Creed

Confess what the centuries have labeled the historical faith, or, well … follow the crowd of those “new kind of Christians” who arrive at the old kind of nothing yet still believe themselves faithful.

Why I’ll Be Reading Rob Bell’s New Book

Rob Bell has a new book coming out. Many evangelical readers, bloggers and pastors will skip this one, but here are 3 reasons I'll be reading it...

Turning on Tebow

Some Christians feel betrayed by Tebow. I get it. But why lash out so quickly? Why not wait until more comes to light? Why throw the guy under the bus?

Behind the Scenes of The Gospel Project: Meet Daniel Davis

In my work at LifeWay, I focus primarily on The Gospel Project. We’ve been excited to watch the launch and progress of this new curriculum.

Why Doesn’t Your Church “Get With the Program?”

We are not beholden to the authority of “cultural consensus.” The King has already given us a program. And that is why we can’t get with the world’s.

Apologetics and the Importance of Listening

Today, I’m glad to welcome author and professor, Mary Jo Sharp, for a conversation about apologetics and the importance of listening.

Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart? A Conversation with J. D. Greear

If you’ve ever counseled people who are constantly questioning the sincerity of their faith or the legitimacy of their salvation, you’ll want to read and recommend this book. It’s one of the best books on assurance I’ve come across.

The Precarious Promise of Pragmatism

Don’t fall into the trap of making numerical growth the goal, but don’t fall into the other ditch of being satisfied with little to no fruit. Instead, examine what the Scripture teaches about fruitfulness.

If Days Could Speak (January 22, 1973)

What if every day of the year could speak? What would the message of each day bring? I wonder.

How Andy Stanley and Tim Keller Preach with Non-Believers in Mind

There’s no denying the significant differences between Andy Stanley and Tim Keller when it comes to theology and ministry. But we can learn from them both in how to respectfully engage the unsaved people in our midst at church.

Why I Am Writing a Fiction Book

In certain Christian circles, we can write 50-page criticisms of The Shack, but we can’t come up with a better story. We grasp the issues, but others grasp the medium. The same is true of movies, music, spoken word videos, and other forms of art.
