22 Christian Stories Your Pastor Never Told You

Take flight

Over the course of 2,000 years, Christianity has spread to every corner of the world. According to the Pew Research Center, there are 2.4 billion Christians in the world, a staggering 33% of the entire world population—and that’s just today.

But thousands of fascinating tales are just waiting to be celebrated and explored.

An open letter to Tim Challies, in response to a recent blog post.

Dear Tim,

The people in my office at Faithlife, makers of Logos Bible Software, read your post “Going All-in With Ebooks” with excitement—and not just because we sell ebooks (including quite a few of them to you, and some of them by you). We read with interest because we are interested in reading. We like books, as do our users, and we like all kinds of books: biography, history, fiction, memoir, and, preeminently, theology and biblical commentary.

How to Host a Marriage Retreat for Your Small Group

The Mingling of Souls Marriage Conference

Small groups help us take “community” from the abstract to the concrete. They allow our relationships with fellow believers to flourish into meaningful friendships as we grow and serve and study the Word together. They provide both a context for us to meet together and the intimacy we need to practically motivate one another towards acts of love and good works (Hebrews 10:24–25). And the better we know each other, the better equipped we are to speak wisdom into each other’s lives.
