Do note, though, that each episode will be available for only one week. After the week is up you will need to purchase the series. Here’s …

Speak, O Lord

I woke up this morning with a song in my head–a song that seemed quite appropriate for a Sunday morning. “Speak, O Lord” is written by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend and simply asks God to speak through his Word. Here are the lyrics to it: Speak, O Lord, as we come to You To receive the food of Your Holy Word. Take Your truth, plant it deep in us; Shape and fashion us in Your likeness, That the light …

5 Books To Read Before Easter

Easter is fast approaching. As Christians begin to turn their gaze towards the death and resurrection of the Savior, it seems appropriate that we should look for resources that will help us meditate on the cross and that will help prepare our hearts. To that end I’d like to suggest five books you may wish to read as Easter approaches. Each of these titles deals with the cross. Each will benefit you immensely as you prepare to remember the Lord. …

3 Vignettes

At the recent Ligonier Ministries National Conference I was asked to speak on “The Next Story.” Instead of speaking about my book or offering up a summary of it, I took a look at 3 vignettes, 3 little stories that help us understand what’s going on here in the digital world. It’s just a short presentation but one I thought you might enjoy. Here it is:

The Only Way and Our Only Hope

A couple of months ago Crossway released Don’t Call it a Comeback: The Old Faith for a New Day. I contributed a chapter to that book titled “Jesus Christ: The Only Way and Our Only Hope.” This chapter deals with religious pluralism, inclusivism and exlusivism, all words and terms that have become hot topics because of Rob Bell’s book Love Wins (my review). Crossway has excerpted that chapter and made it available to you as a free PDF. You can …
