Watch the Trailer for ‘The Biggest Story: The Animated Short Film’  “Narrated by the author and featuring captivating animations adapted from the book, along with an original score by composer John Poon, The Biggest Story: The Animated Short Film will engage children as they are led on an exciting journey through the Bible in just 26 minutes—connecting the dots from the garden of Eden to Christ’s death on the cross to the new heaven and new earth.”

How Can I Learn to Receive—and Give—Criticism in Light of the Cross? Justin Taylor helpfully outlines Alfred Poirier’s work.

When You’re Not a Typical Woman “In my conversations with ladies of many ages, I’ve noticed that we have varying understandings of the typical woman, but few of us think of ourselves as one. Start a conversation with a woman in your church, ask her all about herself, find out her life story, and usually you will hit a point where she will tell you that she doesn’t (or didn’t) feel like a typical woman.”

Is the Christian Faith Rational?  “When I say that Christianity is rational, I do not mean that the truth of Christianity in all of its majesty can be deduced from a few logical principles by a speculative philosopher. There is much information about the nature of God that we can find only because God himself chooses to reveal it to us. He reveals these things through his prophets, through history, through the Bible, and through his only begotten Son, Jesus.

But what he reveals is intelligible; we can understand it with our intellect. He doesn’t ask us to throw away our minds in order to become Christians. There are people who think that to become a Christian, one must leave one’s brain somewhere in the parking lot. The only leap that the New Testament calls us to make is not into the darkness but out of the darkness into the light, into that which we can indeed understand.”
