My Favorite Proverb There is one particular biblical verse with which I have been infatuated for some time and which I have made a constant conscious commitment to follow. That verse goes a little something like this: “Ten cubits shall be the length of each board and one and a half cubits the width of […]
Seeing the Signs There it was… high above in the sky—gigantic, vibrant, shining brilliantly and radiant as the noonday sun, suspended above as if descending from heaven… It was a sign!

(Image: Henze/NASA) Have you ever came across a news feed or article about something phenomenal and didn’t have a clue about it? You might begin to wonder whether or not you live under a rock or something… For me, one of the things that […]
Both Nietzsche and the collective Christian witness proclaim messages of the redemption of humanity from its current state. But just as their worldviews are different, so are their messages of redemption. In fact, the two worldviews are so different that one’s message of redemption is incompatible with the other’s framework. In a world that has […]
Apologetics is often understood as a list of facts and arguments that Christians need to memorize if they don’t want to get intellectually slaughtered by the nearest angry atheist who says, “Jesus didn’t exist” or, “Why would a good God allow evil?” Ironically enough, many (if not most) books on apologetics are structured in this […]
This past weekend, I was out spending time with a friend for her birthday, when a group of ten guys who were part of a bachelor party came and surrounded us.

His guests for one of the segments that day were Michael Shermer, founder of Skeptic Magazine, and William Lane Craig, philosophy professor at Biola University’s Talbot School of Theology. Their discussion was based on the recent opinion piece […]
If you have ever had the privilege of sharing the Gospel with a Muslim, you have probably heard many of their standard objections to Christianity. One of the most common that they turn to rather quickly is that the Bible has been corrupted. The objection has the effect of hitting most of us with psychological […]
Is there any good reason—biblical, philosophical, scientific or otherwise—to believe in innate morality? This post is partly a sequel to my earlier response to Ray Comfort’s video, Evolution vs. God. If you haven’t seen the video or read my comments about the video, check it out here. I don’t intend to rehash that earlier post, nor […]
Don’t get me wrong, I love N.T. Wright, Ravi Zacharias, Tim Keller, William Lane Craig and Os Guinness and all the rest. They’re phenomenal. But I love coming across new, useful resources and the ones listed below have proved to be extremely encouraging to me. I hope you find something here that will personally be […]
