A few blogs ago, I made a statement that may have been a bit provocative. I said: “The apostle Paul spent more time in his letters talking about the redistribution of wealth within the global body than he did on justification by faith.” I thought it would be good...
Eternity Bible College has just rolled out one the most exciting tools we’ve ever created. I’m going to share briefly about it here and offer it to you at a discount, but first the rationale. Every Christian has a responsibility to know God, to study his word, and to help...
Eternity Bible College exists for several reasons; one of them is to provide a quality, life-transforming education at a price that students are able to afford so they can graduate debt-free.  We are committed to this because we believe student debt is deadly.  How many dreams of serving God...

Earlier today, Frank Viola wrote up a review of Multiply at Patheos.com. The review was positive overall, but he brought up five great questions he’d like to hear Francis respond to. I think Frank’s questions are important, so I’d like to take a minute to respond as the co-author...
