Start With Amen

Start With Amen
By Beth Guckenberger

Millions of Christians all over the world say this word every day.  Yet few realize what richness, depth, truth, and connection are packed into this sacred phrase.

作者: 查斯特、添美斯  (Tim Chester & Steve Timmis)

《约翰一二三书注释》:行在光中
A Commentary On The Letters Of John
作者: 大卫.鲍森  (David Pawson)

喜欢读信件的人,应该会喜欢大部份的新约圣经。神选择这种个人性和特定的信件传达祂的话语,实在令人惊讶。原著作者一定没想到,他们是在为全球历世历代之人写圣经。

在第一封书信中,使徒约翰对他在福音书里鲜明的对比发出共鸣,提醒他的读者,是选择活在情欲、谎言和不法的黑暗中,还是活在爱与生命的光明中? (more…)

Reading People

Reading People
By Anne Bogel

If the viral Buzzfeed-style personality quizzes are any indication, we are collectively obsessed with the idea of defining and knowing ourselves and our unique place in the world.  But what we’re finding is this: knowing which Harry Potter character you are is easy, but actually knowing yourself isn’t as simple as just checking a few boxes on an online quiz.

For readers who long to dig deeper into what makes them (more…)
