“The Powers of Darkness & the People of God”– CalvaryChapel.com
“In recent years, there has been a heightened interest in the unseen reality of evil. Because of this, Pastor Brian Brodersen updated his book Spiritual Warfare and gave it a new title: The Powers of Darkness and the People of God. It still deals with the subject of spiritual warfare, but the emphasis is to help the individual Christian in his or her personal battle with the powers of darkness. Our prayer is that this book is a blessing and a help to a new generation of readers.”

“Engaging Opposition: Expressing Love Through Conversation”– CalvaryChapel.com
“If we believe that we have the truth, then what can a person’s rigorous questioning of our faith do to us? I believe the word of God and the Christian faith stands up to the most rigorous of questions. We have nothing to fear from those who oppose our views. If we do fear the questions of those with differing views, what does that say about our faith? Are we worried that they will uncover something that is untrue? Surely not.”
“When Someone You Admire Abandons the Faith”– Russell Moore
“Evangelical author Joshua Harris announces on Instagram that he no longer considers himself a Christian. Evangelical songwriter Marty Sampson now says the same thing about himself. The Internet is atwitter with opinions on all of that, from atheists, from Christians, and everyone in between. As sad as I am about all of this, I can’t help but think about lots of people I’ve known, many of whom would never make headlines, who just, sometimes very quietly, walked away from the faith.”
