Entrusted With The Remains: A Prayer For The Church Of The Present

Sitting about a foot away from me, next to my desk, is a green suitcase containing 22 small notebooks, each one full of pages of handwritten notes.

The Book I’ve Been Waiting For: Ryken’s Bible Handbook

I’ve been teaching the Bible to high school students for 13 years, and hope to do so for many more. In that time, I’ve been looking for a particular resource, and I’ve never found it…until now.

The “Look At Me!” Offering: Trying To Hear What Jesus Says About Public Compassion

I miss the old days. If I’m saying that, you know that the birthdays are piling up, right? But I do. I miss the old days. What old days? The old days when you weren’t obligated to tell everyone how much you cared, how much you were doing for whomever is less fortunate than you, […]
