Revelation TV interview: my story and Hope Reborn

I found filming this interview very emotional. Indeed, at one point I was close to tears. I was asked to share my testimony of conversion, and we spoke about the role that my tent preaching grandfather and prophecy had in shaping my life and ministry. When we turned to discuss Hope Reborn, it struck me that this book, probably more than anything else I have done so far, fulfills the prophetic charge my grandfather gave me.This video should help you understand the goals behind Hope Reborn a … [Read more...]

Piper responds to Patheos authors’ disagreement over Romans 7

John Piper has responded to what he calls our "gracious demurring" on the man of Romans 7 during the conference here and here, and my previous post on the subject.I love that he took the time to explain his position further, and that we are all able to discuss these matters as brothers and friends.  He is totally right when he says: I doubt that when it comes to a positive description of what the Christian life should be, and what it normally is, the three of us would differ significantly. I … [Read more...]

In London? Go to Wembley and see Love Beyond Musical TONIGHT

Thanks to the kindness of the organizers, I was able to attend last night's performance of the musical Love Beyond in which the Bible gets the West End treatment.

Even though it went on until late, they were humming some of the tunes on the way home. It was well worth the additional challenge of getting them up for school this … [Read more...]

An angry judge?But the Bible reveals that God is intensely personal and he is very interested in you. HE wants to know you.  Part of getting to know someone is getting to know about someone. It is not enough to merely learn about them, but it is a helpful and necessary start. We must know why we believe what we believe and … [Read more...]
