The Calling of a Shepherd: Writer Tim Challies on Leading with Love at Church and at Home

Christian author and blogger Tim Challies has served his church faithfully for years, but he’s rarely the guy standing in the spotlight. His interests in ministry have always led him to work behind the scenes, helping to disciple the people in his care.

Building a Bridge to Faith: Kin Yip Louie Reaches Out to Young People in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is an iconic city bridging Western and Eastern culture. For 150 years it was under British rule, which sheltered it from the upheaval of China’s Communist revolution in the 1950s. In 1997, when the British ceded Hong Kong’s territory back to China, it was designated as a nearly autonomous region.

Israel at a Crossroads: Choices and Consequences in Deuteronomy

Deuteronomy is set east of the Jordan River on the plains of Moab, just outside the promised land (1:1). Here, the Israelites stood on the precipice of a new era. Behind them lay the exodus and the wilderness, where Israel experienced some of its highest highs and lowest lows. On the one hand, there was an awesome salvation from one of the greatest empires of the ancient Near East. On the other hand, there was failure so monumental that an entire generation was lost.

Supernatural Geography: Two Verses in Deuteronomy Frame the Entire Old Testament

Regardless of whether they have read the Bible, most people have heard of the tower of Babel. The account of the confusion of human language is recorded in Genesis 11:1–9. But the familiar Sunday school story is about much more than that. Its real importance is something that few people ever hear in church.
