    from Keith Mathison Jul 22, 2009 Category: Articles

    First released in 1994, Accordance is the only full-featured Bible study program designed specifically for Mac users. Until very recently, I was a PC user, so when I switched to Mac, I was interested in what Accordance could do. In the interest of full disclosure, the copy of Accordance I am reviewing is a review copy of Accordance 8 sent to me gratis by Oak Tree.  Keep Reading
  • The Glory of God

    from Keith Mathison Jul 14, 2009 Category: Articles

    The year 2009 marks the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin. A number of publishers are celebrating this 'Calvin Quincentennial' by releasing new books on the life, work, and teaching of Calvin. Among these are a new book titled Living for God's Glory: An Introduction to Calvinism by Joel R. Beeke. Dr. Beeke is well qualified to edit and co-author such a volume. He is the president and professor of systematic theology and homiletics at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary and the pastor of the Heritage Netherlands Reformed Congregation in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He has written, co-authored, or edited over fifty books, and he has also written fifteen hundred articles for various publications, including Tabletalk. Keep Reading

  • Atheism Remix

    from Keith Mathison Jun 23, 2009 Category: Articles

    In 2004, Alister McGrath published a book entitled The Twilight of Atheism: The Rise and Fall of Disbelief in the Modern World. Although the book did not suggest that atheism was dead, its publication may have been a bit premature. For in 2006, atheism scored a propaganda coup with the media attention given to three best-selling books promoting a new and aggressive form of atheism: The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, Breaking the Spell by Daniel Dennett, and Letter to a Christian Nation by Sam Harris. Not to be outdone, Christopher Hitchens published the best-selling God Is Not Great in 2007. Dubbed the "New Atheists" for their belligerent tone and militant intolerance, these authors have declared war on theism in general and Christianity in particular, and they have emboldened a new generation of skeptics.

  • Top 5 Commentaries on the Book of Revelation

    from Keith Mathison Jun 20, 2009 Category: Articles

    Preparing a "Top 5" list of commentaries on the book of Revelation is extremely challenging in a number of ways. I cannot point to a single commentary with which I agree entirely. My own understanding of the book is set forth in a very summary manner in the last chapter of my book From Age to Age (a chapter that is not intended to be read until all of the other chapters have been completed).

  • Study Apologetics at Home with Ligonier Academy

    from Keith Mathison Jun 02, 2009 Category: Ligonier Academy

    Scripture exhorts us to always be ready to make a defense to anyone who asks us for a reason for the hope that is in us (1 Peter 3:15). Are you ready? What would you say if challenged by an atheist or agnostic? What would you say if challenged by a Muslim or a Mormon? Keep Reading
