Four View on Hell supplies a means of exposure to perspectives that are presently being entertained within the pale of evangelicalism, generously conceived. All in all, regardless of whether or not one resonates with the viewpoints it adumbrates, this book nevertheless is to be commended for its lucid explication of four contemporary outlooks on the subject of hell.

The ladies in your church are called to be disciples of Jesus. https://wp.me/p4dWCg-1TX @TayTurkington @VerityFell0ship

Even though the life of a pastor is hectic, it’s likely that educating leaders in your church to use the Bible well is high on your priority list. However, with a busy schedule and a focus on developing elders, pastors sometimes overlook the training of…
Women likely fill more than half of the seats in your church and want to handle the Word of God correctly, so their training is essential.

What advice would you give a budding missionary candidate? @EvanDBurns weighs in.

What would you say to a budding missionary candidate? I have a close friend who is a veteran pastor, missionary, and now a member care director in the city in which I serve. He says there has been a surge of young adults in recent years who have landed on…
The missionary life is not all romance and radical adventure; it is also mingled with heartbreak and loss, where we discover God’s love and providence.

How Did Paul Understand the Trinity? @wesleyhill @eerdmansbooks

In recent years, there has been a growing gap between exegetical studies in the Pauline epistles on the one hand, and trinitarian theology on the other. A widely held view among scholars is that Paul began from the starting point of Jewish monotheism and…
Wesley Hill's thesis is that Paul cannot talk about one of the persons of the Godhead without mentioning one or more of the other persons.

How do you live in familial community, as described in the New Testament? @BradAWatson @GCDiscipleship

In our culture, we call a group of people who care for one-another a community. Broken families, codependent relationships, and an epidemic of loneliness have created a ravenous hunger for community in this generation. This is what we long for in and…

Have you felt God quench your insatiable appetite? @whitneywoollard @GCDiscipleship

As far back as I remember I’ve lived with an insatiable appetite. I’ve always hungered for more - more of a good meal or a good feeling or a good moment. Regardless of how satisfying the food or the experience or the relationship may be, I inevitably…

How tightly do you cling to possessions?

According to Jesus, one's earthly possessions can impede a person's affection for God. It is very difficult to leave behind belongings that provide comfort and stability - even if such things are temporary.

Ephesians 4:8-11 has been a challenging text for interpreters, probably since Paul first wrote this epistle.

Redeeming Theology @whitneywoollard @GCDiscipleship

Contrary to popular opinion, theology is not defined by intellectual scholars reading books or arrogant seminarians picking fights. The term theology means “the study of God.”
Humans are interpreters of meaning. As a believer, you receive information about God, the world, and life and systematized it into a Christian worldview.
