How does one review a book such as this? Everyone should read it—I wish the need for it did not exist. Beyond the beautiful picture of family the book presents and Rachael Denhollander’s enjoyment of the sport of gymnastics in her youth, I wish none of the things in th...

In the past few weeks, we have witnessed the renunciation of faith by a man who once held a position as a major thought-leader in evangelicalism. I do not need to recount Josh Harris’s work here and the grief of those lamenting his carefully crafted social media releas...

“The truth is that there’s a lot in the Bible that isn’t about Jesus.”

If God Is For Us, by Trillia Newbell, is an excellently-written and well-organized Bible study of Romans 8.  Different from other studies which utilize recorded teaching sessions and require group discussion, If God Is For Us stands alone and allows for more flexibilit...
