Noah: Holy fear

January 2, 2012

Noah: Holy fear In New York City in the early summer of 2011, an eight-year-old boy walked seven blocks home alone from his day camp.

June 5, 2016

Noah: God's Favored Son Tommy Smothers, half of the popular comedy duo from the 1960s known as the Smothers Brothers, was famous for saying, “Mom always liked you best.” It turns out he may have been right.

May 16, 2011

Devotion for May 16, 2011 For those who believe the biblical account of Genesis, the Flood is the defining event of the geological record of our planet.

Noah: Salvation, Justice, and God’s Faithfulness

July 9, 2012

Noah: Salvation, Justice, and God’s Faithfulness In the original “creation mandate,” God told Adam and Eve, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it” (Gen. 1:28–31).

Question and Answer

Righteous Excess A prominent pastor faces accusations of sexual impropriety. A Christian college president admits to financial misdeeds.

Noah: God’s Presence, Creation’s Hope

January 14, 2013

Noah: God’s Presence, Creation’s Hope The speed and scope of creation’s unraveling from Genesis 3 until our text today should astonish us. The rebellion began in the hearts of Adam and Eve, spread to their descendents, and then polygamous marriages between angels and women created a cruel and violent race. All that God intended for creation...
