To this point, the books we’ve recommended as our book of the “month” have been popular level books—books that the average reader can get through without too much difficulty. This “month,” I’m recommending a book that will require more effort from the average reader, but I think it’s worth...
Last week, Eternity Bible College hosted its annual Winterim course, which always features distinguished guest professors teaching on a issue that is pertinent to the life and health of the church. This year, we were honored to have Dr. Joel Willitts from Northpark University teaching on the Kingdom of...
As Mark blogged about previously, we're excited to roll out an online Greek and Hebrew program at Eternity. Mark talked about the benefits of learning Greek and Hebrew, which I recommend you read. I'll emphasize a point he made in passing. Most people think that we should study the languages...
You don’t often hear this. In fact, I often hear the opposite, something like: “Bible Scholars stifle our faith;” “they only complicate the Bible so that the common person is confused;” “you don’t need to be a scholar to understand God;” and on and on. There’s some truth to this....

A recent editorial piece in Christianity Today written by Mark Galli titled “Higher Ed at a Crossroad” caught our collective attention at Eternity Bible College. The article presents the case of a particular seminary to exemplify ways Christian Colleges may provide a high quality, low cost education with an...
I recently announced that I will be leading an internship program through my church, Cornerstone South LA. We call it The Apprenticeship, and it’s designed to train cross-cultural church planters. This is something that has been in my mind for quite a long time, and I’m excited to see...
