  • Does the Center Hold?

    from Keith Mathison Feb 25, 2009 Category: Articles

    If I have heard it once, I've heard it a thousand times: "A Calvinist evangelist? Isn't that an oxymoron? Calvinism undermines evangelism." This accusation has been repeated so many times that few make the effort to argue it. Instead, it is simply assumed. Never mind that some of the church's greatest evangelists have been Calvinists. One need only be reminded of men such as George Whitefield, David Brainerd, or "the father of modern missions," William Carey. "Yes," we are told, "these men were great evangelists and Calvinists, but that is because they were inconsistent." But is this true? Keep Reading
  • The Gospel of Reality

    from Gene Edward Veith Feb 24, 2009 Category: Articles

    Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are not enough for many denizens of the twenty-first century.

But comparing the New Testament Gospels to those written centuries later only confirms that these writings are works of history. Keep Reading

It's hard to look over the line-up for Ligonier's upcoming national conference and not pause to give thanks to God for these men. They are valiant-for-truth and imitators of Jesus. As such, they are men worth reading, hearing, and knowing. Keep Reading
  • Top 5 Commentaries on the Books of Colossians and Philemon

    from Keith Mathison Feb 22, 2009 Category: Articles

    The epistles to the Colossians and to Philemon were written by Paul during the early part of his Roman imprisonment. Paul apparently wrote to the Colossian church because he had heard that false teachers had come to the city and were spreading erroneous doctrine in the young church. There are a number of helpful commentaries on Colossians and Philemon, and the following are five of the best. Keep Reading
