Baptism: The Point of No Return
A story from Somalia. The pastor’s wife approached him, with tears in her eyes, and handed him his cell phone. As apprehension spread throughout the congregation, the pastor listened for quite some time, turned off the device, bowed his head, and handed his cell phone back to his...
What Is Cultural Apologetics?
Effective apologetics today requires a genuine missionary encounter. In 1936, a 27-year-old man named Lesslie Newbigin set out from England for India to share Christ among the Hindus. Newbigin faithfully ministered in India for the next 38 years. When he returned to his home country in 1974, he...
A Call for Jesus-y Evangelicals
We need leaders marked by the living presence of Jesus that inspires men and women to bold faith. “Follow me, as I follow Christ,”[1] seems like a pretty audacious statement to make for the average modern-day church leader. It presupposes that the things that I spend my time doing,...
Mike Pence Is Coming to Taylor’s Graduation. The Class of 2019 Is Ready.
Four years of political spats on campus have prepared us for partisan divides and controversy. Taylor University recently made national news with its announcement that Vice President Mike Pence will deliver this year’s commencement address—spurring backlash from students, alumni,...
Is Islam Receptive to Religious Freedom?
The short-term outlook appears grim, says scholar Daniel Philpott, but there are grounds for hope. In the West and elsewhere, views of Islam are sharply divided. To put the matter far too simply, one side describes Islam as a “religion of peace,” while the other contends that it is...
Planning for Ministry and Still Unsure about Where to Go to College?
Let me give you a recommendation. Choosing a college can be a daunting task. If you are going into ministry, you don’t just have to decide the college, but you have to decide the type of college. You have to consider majors, locations, costs, student activities, school reputation and more...
Suffering and Submission in Gethsemane
Even as Jesus struggled, he was resolute about what he wanted most of all. “He fell with his face to the ground and prayed, ‘My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will’” (Matt. 26:39). When we sing the old hymn “I...
Christ's Confident Resolve
What Jesus' arrest and trial can teach us about facing opposition. “So again Pilate asked him, ‘Aren’t you going to answer? See how many things they are accusing you of’” (Mark 15:4). When we approach Easter, there are many things we think about: Jesus’ death...
Love That Will Not Let Go
Mary Magdalene both clung to the risen Christ and went out to bear witness. Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”). Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me … Go instead to my...
At Notre Dame, Good Friday Came Early
The cathedral’s famous Gothic form, which proclaimed Christ in shape and structure, will never die. Gothic architecture has long reached where Christian missionaries would go but are not permitted: the minds and hearts of the faithless. The world’s grief over the flames at Notre-Dame de...
