Inerrant Word – InerrantWord is a new web site from John MacArthur dedicated to the always-important subject of inerrancy. It is part of the lead-up to next year’s Shepherds’ Conference Summit on Inerrancy.

Whisperings – Here is some counsel for pastors and church leaders who find themselves the subject of gossip.
