Ministering to and with Widows

posted by Scot McKnight

Every pastor needs this book on the shelf. Every church needs five copies of this book in store. And of course every widow could benefit from this book because it is written to help with “the new you.” That book […]

The Paradox of Freedom

posted by Scot McKnight

Michael Card, known mostly for his lyrics and music and concerts (and one of my favorite Christian musicians), has explored how it is that Christians find freedom. And what he has discovered is that freedom comes through slavery, which is […]
