“Jesus and the Lions’ Den”— it’s not a misprint!

Alison Mitchell | September 10th 2019

There are some Old Testament stories that pop up in almost every toddler Bible: Noah and the ark, Jonah and the big fish, David and Goliath…

Daniel in the lions’ den is one of those—but there’s far more to it than most infant Bibles show—which is why we have cheekily called the story “Jesus and the Lions’ Den” instead.... continue reading


Have You Ever Lost Trust in God?

Elodie Quetant | September 3rd 2019

I once did. It felt like a balloon in my chest quickly deflated. As I ransacked my mind for Scripture to keep me hopeful, my faith’s air level neared zero, and then it was too late—my heart decided to blame God. I never experienced this before. Even when life served its worst circumstances, I had faith that God saw and heard me.... continue reading

Peculiar Passages: The Prophet, the Dead Boy, and Some Very Strange Events

Carl Laferton | August 22nd 2019

2 Kings 4 v 14-37 is strange. We’re in Israel in about 800BC, and a barren woman living in Shunem gives a room to (well, builds a room for) Elisha, God’s prophet, and is given a son by God (v 14-17).... continue reading


Russell Moore on Abuse Within the Church

Russell Moore | August 21st 2019

As Christians, we see both the horror of evil and, against that, the triumphant beauty of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We don’t see the world, or history, or our own life plotlines as sentimental morality tales, nor do we see them as gothic horror stories.
