If you had a choice between a good book written this year and a good book on the same topic written over 100 years ago, which would you choose? Here are a few reasons why you might consider choosing the older book. 1. Old books give us perspective. Sometimes we...
I’ve been studying the Bible for over 16 years now, but only recently thought about what the Bible says about racial reconciliation. Racial tension is as old as Noah, and with Martin Luther King Day approaching, I thought I’d blog about what I now consider a theologically crucial topic. So...
