  • The Christian Lover: The Sweetness of Love and Marriage in the Letters of Believers

    from Deborah Finnamore Jan 12, 2009 Category: Articles

    Marriage is under siege in our time, and Christian unions are not going unscathed. Dr. Michael A.G. Haykin believes that love letters written by Christian husbands and wives of the past can help strengthen the ties that bind believing spouses today. In this anthology, Haykin brings together letters from one or both parties in twelve significant relationships from church history.

In the end, The Christian Lover is a celebration of marriage, an intimate window into the thoughts of men and women who were deeply in love with both God and one another. Keep Reading

But when preaching is neglected, those who have been called to feed the sheep do little more than pet them. Here is encouragement for pastors to persevere in their calling and wisdom to guide congregations in holding their shepherds to the biblical standards. Keep Reading
