Current Issues Joe Carter – Why it’s so Difficult to Defund Planned Parenthood “Until there are more pro-life members in the Senate, Planned Parenthood will continue to collect more than $60,000 an hour, every hour of every day of every year, from the American taxpayer.” Bible Study/Preaching/Family Issues/Apologetics Kevin DeYoung – Theological Primer: Divine Infinity “There are a number of ways to categorize the attributes of God, but the most common way is to divide them into God’s incommunicable and communicable attributes.

Current Issues Albert Mohler – The Gathering Storm: Religious Liberty in the Wake of the Sexual Revolution “Human rights and human dignity are temporary abstractions if they are severed from their reality as gifts of the Creator.

Current Events Albert Mohler – The Shack: The Missing Art of Evangelical Discernment “The popularity of this book among evangelicals can only be explained by a lack of basic theological knowledge among us — a failure even to understand the Gospel of Christ. The tragedy that evangelicals have lost the art of biblical discernment must be traced to a disastrous loss of biblical knowledge.
