Muslims, Christians, and Jesus

"I lived in Lebanon from 1992 until 2004. If 9/11 was going to rip the world apart, I was going to do everything I could to stop it. We had worked long to build friendships, and the last thing I wanted was to let them be torn away by international politics, hatred, and misunderstanding."

Rex's Miracle

As I lay in bed, I acknowledged how few moments in life touch us to the core of our very being. [Yet] it’s in those moments that you know what you need to know and you forget what should be forgotten. You have a brief glimpse of eternity, as time is suspended as though God is looking you straight in the eye, with a smile that leaves you clear in the knowledge that all is right and good and is as it should be...

Catching Christmas

Is Rome the True Church?

In this major critical analysis, Norman Geisler and Joshua Betancourt examine the Roman church’s claim to being the only true church and its implications. Since this claim is the most fundamental of all Catholic dogmas—all other doctrines being based on it—the whole of the Roman system stands or falls here.

Worldliness

Worldliness—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes, and the boasting of what he has or does—actively opposes God and the truth of His Word. How, then, can a believer relate to the world without being seduced by its system? Pastor C. J. Mahaney introduces the answer.

Reforming or Conforming?

While self-described “post-conservative evangelicals” enjoy increasing influence in the evangelical world, they represent a significant challenge to biblical faith. Editor Gary Johnson lays the foundation to understand why postmodernism – and its place in the emergent church – challenges the center of evangelical Christianity.

Spectacular Sins

God has not answered all of our questions about sin and suffering, but there are things he wants us to know—such as what’s at stake in the “spectacular” sins of others and the horrible tragedies of this life; their global purpose, both historically and today; and what these events say to us personally.
