Josh Mcarthur and his wife Allison are former Eternity Students who now serve in Costa Rica with 6:8 Ministries When I was 18, God shook my world and exposed the hypocrisy and self-righteousness that had marked my life. I grew up in a Christian home, had amazing parents who served...
I mentioned before that our book of the month feature wasn’t necessarily going to be a monthly feature. I wasn’t lying. We’ll just post about great books we’ve read whenever we feel like passing them on to you. This “month” I want to recommend When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate...
The environment can be a polarizing issue. Talk too much about caring for the earth and you risk being branded a liberal, as though recycling is the equivalent of compromising the gospel.

I have already made a lot of fuss about The Hunger Games (click here, here, or here), but I can’t resist at least one more post. A friend of mine watched the movie in the theater on opening night. The house was packed. The audience rode the emotional roller...
I’m writing this post from downtown San Francisco, where I just finished attending the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) conference. Every year, thousands of leading evangelical theologians gather together at an upscale hotel to present papers on various biblical, ethical, and theological issues. “Logical Contradiction and God’s Omnipotence” and “Foundationalism...
