  • 5 Reasons to Study Old Testament History: Shakespeare said that history is “a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” The Christian view of history is quite a contrast; we believe God ordained it, organizes it, and moves it towards a meaningful, definite, and certain purpose.
  • Why the Bodily Resurrection Matters–Especially to Women: We live during a time when women are encouraged to detach from our bodies.
