The Gospel According to the Gospels

Mike Harding FrontLine • January/February 2009 The Good News of the Gospels centers on the bloody, sacrificial, vicarious death of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross for our sins, evidenced by His burial and bodily resurrection.

Martin Luther — The Man Who Started the Reformation

Sam Horn Bring … the Books FrontLine • September/October 2006 Since your Imperial Majesty requires a plain answer, I will give one without horns or hoof!

The Same Commit Thou to Faithful Men

Josiah M. Wambua FrontLine • January/February 2010 The cliché “Christianity in Africa is many miles wide but only a few inches deep” is not new to most ears.

God Setteth the Solitary in Families

John Vaughn FrontLine • May/June 2003 God’s people have taken refuge in the Psalms for centuries, and well they should. Psalm 68 is rich with promises and words of comfort.

The Neglected Stepchild of the Bible

Layton Talbert FrontLine • May/June 2003 This column has previously addressed the neglected stepchild of the New Testament, the diminutive but beautiful Book of Philemon. But to another volume belongs the dubious distinction of being perhaps the most misunderstood (and often abused) stepchild of the sacred library as a whole, both Old and New Testaments. […]

Straight Cuts: The Responsibilities of Leaders and Followers

Randy Shaylor FrontLine • May/June 2007 Hebrews 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
