I enjoy reading biographies.  It is always a fascinating thing to find out what makes a person tick.  Abigail Santamaria very thoroughly researched the life of Joy Davidman Gresham, the woman who captivated C.S. Lewis as the subtitle states.   Now I know why many of Lewis’s friends did not like Joy.  They were intrigued by her and so was I, but she would have been a difficult person to get along with.  She explored and immersed herself in all the...

  Genesis 1 The woman was made of a rib out of the side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be tramped upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved.1 Matthew Henry so succinctly describes woman and her nature and value.  What is woman?  What is God’s purpose for her?  In the wake of feminism and gender identity issues, it would do us well to...

Carolyn Custis James wrote this book as her own addendum to the best selling secular book, Half the Sky, which is a book based on the Chinese proverb that women hold up half the sky.  It is a cry for justice and action against the oppression of women and girls around the world.  Without having read Half the Sky, I think I might agree with it actually.   There is no objection from me if we want to encourage people to help end the degradation of women around...

 Honour widows that are widows indeed …she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.   (1 Timothy 5:3, 5). Widows were a prominent figure in the epistles as well as the early apostolic churches of the 1st through 3rd centuries.  The Bible encourages special honor be given to these godly women of the church, and their role became more and more organized and formalized in the early...

Scripture gives us this juxtaposition of getting out our telescopes and viewing the vastness of His Word and yet using the microscope to really investigate the nitty gritty details.   The great constellations of foundational doctrines are so plain for all the world to see.  It is like coming across the wide plain and seeing the whole mountain range before you.  Viewing those mighty vistas of great truths.  You gaze in awe at one huge mountain, then shift...

Sally Llod-Jones has written quite a popular children’s Bible published under the children’s wing of Zondervan Publishing.  I might rather have called it, “the Children’s Bible Storybook” because it is not a Bible.  It’s not a translation.   It’s not even really a paraphrase. Maybe we might call it a children’s devotional book.  It is a storybook based on the Bible much like the Christian Bible history...
