posted by Stephanie Drury

What more relevant way to encourage and shepherd your flock than via fan page? These are created either by members of their church or by the pastor himself masquerading as a member of the church.

#113 Tim Tebow

posted by Stephanie Drury

American evangelicals exalt Tim Tebow. They can’t resist a player with Bible verses on his eyeblack.

posted by Stephanie Drury

#68 Beth Moore

posted by Stephanie Drury

Christian women adore Beth Moore. At this moment 91% of them are either in the middle of a Beth Moore Bible study or about to start another Beth Moore Bible study.
