Apologetics Tom Ascol – Give Them Law and Gospel “What God requires in His law, He provides in His gospel. That is the message of the Bible and it is what everyone needs to hear and believe.

Apologetics John Tweeddale – A Theology of the Home “The home front is the forlorn battlefield of the cultural wars. In our strivings to defend the gospel against doctrinal decline in the church and increasing secularism in the culture, we must not forget the importance of cultivating virtue in the home.
