Excerpts from the September–October 2016 Issue!

Holiness and Happiness: Randy Alcorn's Journey of Transformation and Joy

Growing up in a non-Christian home, Randy Alcorn’s fi rst thoughts of God and spirituality were of emptiness and absence. With only limited exposure to the Bible, Alcorn—now a speaker, author, and director of Eternal Perspective Ministries—recalls a sort of spiritual awakening as a young teenager, when he joined a school astronomy club.

An Ancient Guide to Eternal Truth: 7 Reasons to Let the Apostles' Creed Guide Your Bible Study

There are many great tools out there to help you dig into God’s Word, from theological dictionaries to commentaries to study Bibles. But have you ever thought about using the Apostles’ Creed as a study guide?

—Michael F. Bird

Disarming the Powers of Darkness

—Michael S. Heiser

A Portrait of the Invisible God

The Colossians poem celebrates the marvelous disclosure of God in Christ by means of a series of contrasting images, which include: things visible and invisible; the creator and creation; heaven and earth; eternity and time; and God’s order and good pleasure in the reconciliation between God and opponents through the cross of Christ. Through this beautiful combination of imagery, Paul shows us what God looks like.
