Over the years I've begun collecting extra copies of books that I have found to be insightful, motivating, and rooted in gospel truth. They are the kind of books that you go back to again and again. Each page draws you to the heart of the gospel and spurs you into prayer and reflection. Most […]

Long before George H. W. Bush spoke of a kinder, gentler America-almost fifty years before to be exact-American evangelicals had tried to fashion a less abrasive and more affirming version of their faith. The year was 1924 and a variety of fundamentalists assembled to put aside acrimony and mudslinging, and to put forward a positive […]
