Book Review – The Parables of Jesus by James Montgomery Boice

The Parables of Jesus by James Montgomery Boice is widely-known to be the gold standard on understanding the parables and after reading it I now know why. Boice thinks through each parable with clarity and direction. An easy mistake when reading the parables its to get lost with the cultural details, but Boice seldom falls into this trap…

Profiles: J.I. Packer

Lately, I’ve been asked about a lot of writers and if I thought they were any good. I don’t claim to be an expert or anything but I do read regularly and intentionally. Most of the people asking me about authors are asking about “iffy” authors who have had some theological issues or perhaps the asker just was questioning some things.

I’ve received this question quite a bit over the last few weeks.

There are many choices out there and one needs to be careful about the translation that they use because not all translations are the same in quality and faithfulness to the original manuscripts. Here are some questions to think about…

FBC Post: Easter is Over Now What?

FBC Post: Easter is Over Now What?

hristians sometimes live their lives going from one spiritual high to the next. You know the feeling, there’s a spiritual high or intensity of our faith while we celebrate Christmas for example. Through Advent we look forward to the birth of the Savior and there’s a palpable energy in the church as we joyfully remember how our God became a man for us. After Christmas though we often have a lull until we begin to build up once again for Easter. For the few weeks surrounding Easter, that energy in our hearts is back that fervor in our spiritual life is intensified…
