The Power of Understanding Biblical Archaeology

a005_c021_0604vo3_630x332 Most of us who study the Bible understand the importance of archaeology. It shows us glimpses of what life was like in the ancient world and provides us with important background information on the Bible. While we recognize its importance, we don’t know much about the actual process of doing archaeology in the field. What does being an archaeologist involve?

10 Practical Tips for Family Devotions This Christmas

christmas-family-worshipIf I thought I was a pretty scintillating Bible teacher, the kind that makes people sit on the edge of their seats, the kind that is also able to put the cookies on the lower shelf and interest even kids, that thought was shattered when my own kids got old enough for family devotions (age 2). You have never seen such bored kids, kids achieving new and powerful levels of bored. I confess that this caused no small level of frustration for me.

With the on-going expansion of non-European, non-Protestant immigrant communities across the United States, we’re increasingly challenged to think about how the United States can be one unified nation when so many different ethnic and religious communities live here.”
