Training Partners: Philadelphia Eagles Teammates Find Renewal and Strength in Scripture

When Trey Burton signed with the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles as a rookie free agent in 2014, he could see divine fingerprints all over the deal. At the time, Burton, an undrafted multipurpose offensive player, was looking for both an NFL team and a spiritual home. He and his two younger brothers had grown up in a single-parent family after his father had left when he was two weeks old. Burton attended a Christian academy in grade school and professed faith in kindergarten, but as he got older, worldly temptations kept getting the best of him. He lacked spiritual fruit.

Faith Forward: An Interview with John and Lisa Bevere

How can Christians strengthen their witness in the world? For John and Lisa Bevere, the answer lies in breaking away from distractions and living as God’s holy people.

Reconciliation: Reflecting God’s Fullness Together

What can C.S. Lewis teach us about reconciliation?” asked my friend Dr. Claudia May, a professor of reconciliation studies. Although I’ve studied Lewis’s writings for years, this wasn’t a question I’d ever considered. In an increasingly divided climate—politically, religiously, and otherwise—reconciliation is an unavoidable topic. As Christians, we are motivated to engage in the work of reconciliation because we pursue the reconciling One who still calls, “Follow me.” Christ’s work in our world makes reconciliation more timeless than timely (2 Cor 5:19).

Preaching Christ in a Place with Many Gods: Paul’s Visit to the Areopagus

When Paul went to Athens, he might as well have stepped into a time machine and taken a trans-Atlantic flight. There, in the intellectual heart of ancient Greece, Paul found himself in a culture uncannily similar to that of our own 21st-century United States.
