Five Fascinating Facts about Queen Elizabeth II

Alison Mitchell | June 2nd 2022

Queen Elizabeth II has been Britain’s queen for over 70 years, having become queen in 1926 when she was just 25 years old. During her reign she has worked with 14 British prime ministers and met every US president since Harry S. Truman (except for President Lyndon B. Johnson).

How Do I Share the Gospel?

Randy Newman | April 7th 2022

Paul told Timothy to “do the work of an evangelist” (2 Timothy 4:5). We might consider that he’d say the same thing to us. We should take comfort in knowing that Timothy was a timid non-evangelist. But that comfort could diminish when we realize his shyness didn’t let him “off the hook." He was still to do that work—as difficult and as daunting as it may have seemed.... continue reading

How C.S. Lewis Helped Lead Me to Christ

Randy Newman | September 30th 2021

It’s the intertwining of the two forces of mind and imagination that, I believe, made C.S. Lewis such a powerful evangelist, not only for me but for countless others. An expert on medieval literature may not seem like the kind of person God would use for widespread evangelistic fruit. But Lewis saw himself as a “translator—one turning Christian doctrine ... into language that unscholarly people would attend to and could understand.”... continue reading

Preparing God’s People for Outreach (and Outrage)

Randy Newman | September 14th 2021

If you look at a short bio on the back of one of C.S. Lewis’s books, you’ll see that he taught at both Oxford and Cambridge. He spent much more time at Oxford (29 years) and moved to Cambridge only for the last seven years of his career. You may wonder why he made the switch. If you read a fuller biography, you learn that it involved a fair amount of personal pain and no small amount of persecution for his faith.... continue reading

How Weakness Qualifies You to Share The Gospel

Rebecca Manley Pippert | April 8th 2021

To be human—to be dependent—is wonderful in God’s eyes! That is why we must never despise our smallness, since the Son of God became “small” when he became human. His birth is a tremendous validation of how good it is to be human. Christ becoming flesh “hallows all flesh,” as the poet Charles Williams said.... continue reading
