Available at Amazon.com andwww.AnswersInGenesis.org. Reviewed by Abigail Nobel. Are you attending college? Sending your child? Or preparing high school students for that next big step? If so, you are rightly concerned about the anti-Christian influences rampant there, and this book is for you. It presents difficult topics and biblical solutions in an entertaining, easy read.

Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the Lord. Jeremiah 8:7 With eager anticipation we await the return of the birds to our neighborhoods. Our eagerness to see and hear the birds again arises, in part, from the fact that their return signifies the end of winter. As Christians, we ought to welcome the end of winter and the arrival of spring, not so much because we dislike the snow or the cold weather,...

We can well imagine that day in Bethany. The kitchen was bustling with activity. The sweet smell of baking bread wafted from the oven. Pungent Mediterranean food simmered in pots over a crackling fire. The roasting meat mingled with herbs rendered a most savory aroma. Martha was putting forth her best culinary effort, and it was all worth it. Jesus was visiting, and they must serve him the choicest they had. She was determined this would be a feast fit for a king. Yet something was amiss: Martha lost her sous-chef. Mary was not helping Martha with the dinner, but...

Previous article in this series: February 15, 2010, p. 226. The Postmillennial Interpretation of Revelation 20 (cont.) The Loosing of Satan Just as Satan has been bound by the exalted Jesus Christ at the beginning of the millennium, so he will be loosed by Christ at the end of the millennium. The loosing of Satan is taught in verse seven of Revelation 20: “And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison.” In harmony with the truth that the binding of Satan refers to Christ’s preventing Satan from deceiving the nations during the period of the thousand...

No matter what you do or where you go, there is one thing you do every day. You talk. From the time you get up in the morning until you lay your head on your pillow at night, you talk. Your life is filled with communication. In the kitchen, the family room, the car, the classroom, the hallways of school, on the basketball court or baseball field, you talk. In our techy society, you have many ways to communicate: texting, Facebook, email, instant messaging, Twitter, etc. Yet the primary way of communicating is talking. God has given to man the...

Many who deny that the days in Genesis 1 are real days try to persuade us to believe that God did not intend for us to take Genesis to be a record of real history. Some say the Bible begins with a myth. Others say it begins with a vision filled with symbolic language. Either way, they are trying to convince us that the events recorded in the first chapters of Genesis never took place. Such teachings we must wholeheartedly reject. Real History, Not a Vision Some have said that just as the Bible ends with a series of visions containing symbolism,...

The church’s need for ministers has always been great. Christ’s words found in Luke 10:2apply to the whole New Testament age. “The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send labourers into his harvest.” There never has been a time when the church could not use more men to go into all the world to preach the gospel as pastors and teachers. But there are times for a particular denomination when the words of Christ ring especially true. The Theological School Committee (TSC) and faculty of our seminary...

Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Romans 8:33, 34 The preceding verses place us in eternity. “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his son. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified” (vv....
