God Writes a Great Story

I recently picked up a book my son was reading and flipped through it, noticing that a number of pages were folded down. Curious, I asked him why he did it. “Because those are all my favorite parts,” he responded. He’s a boy after my own heart because I do the same thing. I dog-ear and mark up my books so I can go back and reread my favorite parts. In some books though, there are no pages folded down. In those books, I found myself editing as I read, thinking of ways I would have written it differently,...

Here’s the fascinating irony: Every rebel who searches for freedom apart from...

Much has been said about who the church is, what the church does, and how the church does it over the past two thousand years. We live in an age where there is no shortage of ecclesiology books that address such topics. I have found that many of these books live in one of two worlds: they are either extremely dense and narrowed in their intended audience, or they shirk on depth altogether, providing a fairly uninformative read. Joe Thorn’s “Of The Church” series attempts (and succeeds) avoiding both of these worlds by offering a 3-volume set of short,...
