Help in Unbelief

You may not readily admit it, but you've been there with me. The ever-irksome foe named Doubt darkens your door of faith, casting a shadow over everything you have believed for much of your life.

But what if we can learn the beauty, the extraordinariness, the profundity of Christian faith from chapters like Genesis 3, 2 Kings 4, Matthew… Continue reading Book Review: Portraits of Faith (Joel R. Beeke)

What Submission is Not
