by Jason J. Stellman

New covenant believers live between “the already” and “not yet,” a point in redemptive history between the partial and complete fulfillment of God’s promises. This means they are exiles and pilgrims in the divinely ordained overlap of the ages. As Rev. Jason J. Stellman argues in his book Dual Citizens: Worship and Life Between the Already and the … Read more…

Business for the Glory of God

Business for the Glory of God

by Wayne Grudem and Wayne Grudem

Can business activity in itself be morally good and pleasing to God? Sometimes business can seem so shady-manipulating the 'bottom line,' deceiving the consumer, or gaining promotions because of whom you know.

I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist (Foreword by David Limbaugh)

I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist (Foreword by David Limbaugh)

by Norman Geisler, Frank Turek, Norman L. Geisler, Frank Turek and David Limbaugh

To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical.

Suffering and the Sovereignty of God

by John Piper, Joni Eareckson Tada, Justin Taylor, Justin Taylor, John Piper, David Powlison, Joni Eareckson Tada, Mark Talbot, Stephen F. Saint, Carl F. EllisJr. and Dustin Shramek

In the last few years, 9/11, a tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and many other tragedies have shown us that the vision of God in today's churches in relation to evil and suffering is often frivolous.

Total Truth: Liberating Christianity From Its Cultural Captivity

Total Truth: Liberating Christianity From Its Cultural Captivity

by Nancy Pearcey

Does God belong in the public arena of politics, business, law, and education? Or is religion a private matter only-personally comforting but publicly irrelevant? In today's cultural etiquette, it is not considered polite to mix public and private, or sacred and secular. This division is the single most potent force keeping Christianit… Read more…

Falling Into the Face of God

Falling Into the Face of God

by William Elliott, William Elliott and William J. Elliott

In early June of 2002, I left the United States and traveled to the locus of my own soul. If one were to look at a map, they would say that my destination was Israel (specifically the Judean Desert) and that I had traveled 6,497 miles. But in actuality, I traveled much farther than that-upon a road whose traversing is not measured in miles, but by the deepen… Read more…
