Free E-Book: God and the Gay Christian? A Response to Matthew Vines (Albert Mohler, ed)

Today, Matthew Vines has released a controversial book called God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships.

In response, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary has released a short book, edited by Albert Mohler, that  challenges and refutes Vines’ claims. This E-book is available for free download here.

As a result Christians […]

Books Worth Reading: Mere Apologetics by Alister McGrath

A while back I picked up this book at a discount store near my house. I recognized the name so I figured it would be worth reading. I have know Alister McGrath primarily as a historian, having read his books on the Reformation and John Calvin. However, this little book is considerably different than what I have read by him before. In Mere Apologetics, McGrath presents a basic overview of apologetic theory and practice. The apologetic task is a very personal one for McGrath, in that he was at one time an atheist himself. Now he is an advocate for […]
