Regular readers of our blog will know that Preston Sprinkle has just published his book Fight: A Christian Case for Non-Violence with the help of Eternity graduate Andrew Rillera.

“I refuse to create a theology that allows for sickness.” I recently came across this sentence, spoken by a pastor with increasing prominence. This statement is so unfortunate. For one thing, it doesn’t fit the Scriptures. For another thing, it doesn’t fit with the world as anyone experiences it....
Revelation is a tale of two cities. I just finished teaching a three-week summer session of New Testament Survey, which culminated in reading the book of Revelation overnight. As I read through this enigmatic book in a very short period of time, I was struck by the contrast it...
