“I have never been the kind to enjoy an afternoon at the art gallery. It's not that I don't like art--I really do--but more that I don't understand it very well. Of course the fact that I am red-green color blind probably doesn't help my cause too much, but it seems that what excites artists, what stands out to them, does very little for me. One of those funny... Read Full Review

“We are definitely not facing a shortage of books on leadership. These titles have sections all their own in the big bookstores, they line the airport bookstalls, and they appear on the bestseller lists with predictable regularity. Much like books on prayer or books on parenting and a select handful of other topics, it appears that there simply cannot be too many of... Read Full Review

“There's little doubt that pornography is a modern-day plague. Though pornography has always existed in one form or another, the Internet has created a medium through which it can be disseminated both widely and discreetly. Almost an entire generation of boys has succumbed at one time or another, with a new generation quickly falling into all of the same traps. And... Read Full Review
by Jonathan Cahn
“ Is it fact or fiction? That is the question everyone asks when they first encounter Jonathan Cahn's book The Harbinger. The answer is both, I guess--a little from column a and a little from column b. How about this: The Harbinger is meant to be fact presented in the form of a novel; in reality it is an unfortunate mixture of truth and error presented... Read Full Review

“Take a look at this graphic. Image that the middle box in the chart is your house and the boxes that surround it are the eight houses closest to your own. I doubt your neighborhood is arranged like a tic-tac-toe board, so you may need to use your imagination just a little bit.   Here's what I want you to do. First, write the names of the people who live... Read Full Review

“I occasionally write under a pseudonym. There are some things I feel like I can say, or maybe even ought to say, that wouldn't be wise to contribute under my own name. And so there have been a handful of times over the years that I've written under a pseudonym. There are several complications that come with writing under a pen name, chief among them that it is...

by Christopher Hitchens
“I began reading Mortality, Christopher Hitchens' newest book--his final book--on the day it was released. I couldn't sleep that day, so woke up in the wee hours, downloaded it to the iPad and began reading. It's not a long work, so did not take more than a couple of hours. Like everything Hitchens wrote, Mortality is brilliant and insightful and well-written and... Read Full Review

“It’s a feeling every reader knows and loves, and perhaps especially the reader of theology. It is the feeling that comes as you read a book and find yourself thinking "This could change everything." There are some books that go straight to what you think you know, what you are so sure of, what you’ve so carefully constructed, and begin to pull it all apart and to... Read Full Review
by R.C. Sproul
“R.C. Sproul has a long history of making a stand for truth. He has an equal history of standing firm against error, using his ministry platform to refute errors that are seeping into the Evangelical church. On several occasions he has reacted to those who have sought to minimize the differences between Protestant theology and Roman Catholic theology. Faith Alone... Read Full Review
