  • Encouraging One Another

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Sep 17, 2011 Category: Articles

    I write, but I also read. The two actually go hand in hand. To read only is to be a wisdom vortex, to take in but never breath out. To write only is to embrace the folly that wisdom ends with you. Without drinking deeply of the wisdom of others we will soon become clouds without rain. Keep Reading
  • Feminine Threads

    from Starr Meade Sep 16, 2011 Category: Book Reviews

    “Christianity is a religion of history.” With these words, Diana Lynn Severance launches into a comprehensive survey of church history from the New Testament to the present day. As is obvious by the book’s title, Feminine Threads: Women in the Tapestry of Christian History is a survey intended to be selective. Severance brings two particular aspects of church history into sharp focus:  the roles of individual women in that history and the way the church has thought about women through the centuries.

  • Where Is Your Hope?

    from Tim Challies Sep 14, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    The story is told that a financially comfortable North American went to visit a mission church that was located in the village dump in a city in Africa. Wondering, he shadowed the pastor for much of the day until he finally burst out and said, “Where is your hope?” He could find no tools with which the pastor could work, no materials with which he could build, no food that he could pass on to the poverty-stricken people. “Where is your hope?” Keep Reading
