    Hollywood is releasing several stories from the Bible this year, to varying reactions. “We’re talking about sacred characters and sacred stories,” says San Diego State University history professor Edward Blum, “and so it’s not just Noah on screen talking to some powerful force.

  • New-Calvinism_FEAT

    “For some, Calvinism is divisive and unbiblical” says Southern Baptist pastor Daniel Montgomery of Sojourn Community Church in Louisville, Kentucky, “We’ve seen that it unifies our efforts.
