Love Your Life
Victoria Osteen’s first book will release next month. “As a minister, she reaches out to an enormous community of people who look to her for guidance, strength, wisdom, and encouragement. She knows as well as anyone that operating in so many different roles can be extremely demanding, yet she has managed to find balance, living her life in the unforced rhythms of grace. If you ask her, she’ll tell you that she loves her life and she wants you to love your life, too.”

Martin Downes points to a new series called Classic Reformed Theology. “The series will provide critical English editions of key texts from the vitally important era of Reformed orthodoxy.”

There’s a new face around – and it’s a baby’s.”
