Prepared for Evangelism – Randy Alcorn excerpts one of his books to provide some wisdom on evangelism.

How Do We Define Biblical Words? – Bill Mounce looks at that question. It may well be a question you’ve never really thought about before.

John 10:16 Conference – New Yorkers may want to take a look at the John 10:16 Conference.

Along with that, however, we also want to clarify some of the misconceptions about the redemption He has provided in His Son Jesus Christ.”

Brilliant and Foolish – Bob Kelleman shows that the world’s most intelligent person is also the world’s most foolish. “Many people consider Stephen Hawking, the renown physicist and best-selling author, to be the most brilliant person alive.

    Let’s Hear It For the Second Parents

    While today we tend to associate step-parents with divorce, in previous centuries they were almost exclusively associated with death and with either widow- or widowerhood.
