  • How Should Christians Observe Halloween?

    With the prominent celebration of Halloween at the end of this month, perhaps a good topic for discussion among Christian evangelists would be the appropriate Christian approach to this observance. How should individual Christians and local churches handle this cultural clash of death and evil with the biblical principles of life and goodness? That’s what […]

  • Which Is It: ISIS, ISIL, or IS?

    Maybe you’ve noticed that President Obama prefers to call the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (or ISIS) by the alternate name of ISIL (which means the Islamic State in the Levant). So, what’s the difference? Actually, there’s a big difference. ISIS is a much more accurate description of the present status of the terrorist […]

  • Are You Sure You’re Going to Heaven?

    Random street interviews I’ve watched seem to indicate that the majority of people believe they’re going to Heaven because they’re a “good person”. But is that the qualifier for going to Heaven?

  • Happy Resurrection Day!

    Resurrection Sunday is my favorite of all the Christian holy days of the year, because it commemorates Jesus’ victory over sin and the grave.

  • What’s So Holy About Holy Week?

    Why is the week before Easter (better described as Resurrection Day) called Holy Week? In our so-called post-modern society where few people, including supposed Christians, know anything about Jesus Christ and the faith that worships Him (called Christianity), now is as good a time as any to explain this. In order to explain Holy Week, […]

In her new study guide, In Pursuit of Happiness: Stewarding Freedom as a Modern Christian Woman, Laury L. Davis asks women to consider how they are handling this great stewardship.

  • On the Air Via the Web: The Kevin Zimmerman Show

    On March 20, 2014, my good friend and the subject of my book A Time for Everything: the Kevin Zimmerman Story, Kevin Zimmerman, hosted me on his weekly Internet radio program, The Kevin Zimmerman Show. I meant to post a link to the archived recording of that live interview sooner, but I’ve been rather distracted […]

  • Why Is Fundamentalist Such an Ugly Word?

    Do you know what the true meaning is of the terms fundamentalism or fundamentalist? If you think these are defined as “a narrow-minded worldview” and “a judgmental, mean-spirited  person with a narrow-minded worldview” (respectively), then you’ve been duped by the secularists who despise anyone with a strongly held conviction about anything religious, especially the Bible […]
