Keith Mathison: “The year 2008 witnessed the publication of a large number of Christian books. Deciding which to include in this list was no simple matter.

Jim Elliff has a new site called “Way to God.” “Are you looking for the way to God? I’d like to help. On the site you will find answers to questions, clarifying articles, audio and the stories of people who have come to Christ.”


A Whole Lot of DAC
Hundreds of MP3s by D.A. Carson have been uploaded to the Gospel Coalition web site. Hundreds!
