Martin Luther and John Calvin are the two most widely recognized individuals from the reformation, but there are many other forgotten leaders of the reformation that we don’t often hear about. This feature is a conversation looking at a few of these unknown heroes of the reformation. Mr. Greg Quiggle also helps us understand this important time.
All across the country many states have enacted some version of the Citizens Participation Act, a law intended to protect grass-roots advocates and common citizens from the threat of legal action by big business. A recent case in Illinois demonstrates the weaknesses of this poorly written law as it is being flipped on its head and used by big businesses to intimidate a prolife advocacy group.

There has been a lot of attention this year on the reformation, and while there were certainly many different factors which led to it, one of the most significant was a return to studying the scriptures in the original languages. In turn, this revival led to translating the Bible into the common languages across Europe.
When the Apostle Paul addressed the men of Athens in the book of Acts he asserted our complete dependence on God; that everything in life is “in Him and through Him.” Yet, there are so many areas today where we forget to acknowledge God’s role if not ignore it. Unfortunately, one such area commonly overlooked is the education of our children.
Most of us as believers would agree that the scriptures are the ultimate authority in our lives for both doctrine and practice. But often, various camps within Christianity differ on how to apply the scriptures in these areas. This feature takes a look at this issue with Tony Payne, Publishing Director of Mathias Media, and Dr. Gerald Peterman, Chair of the Bible Department at the Moody Bible Institute.
A number of years ago a little book burst onto the bestseller’s list entitled: The Prayer of Jabez.
This once forgotten figure, buried in the genealogies of the Chronicles, was at the center of a debate about the believer and prayer. Nearly 10 years later, Jabez has faded back into pages of the Old Testament—but a new book reexamines these two short verses and offers an insight into how God uses pain to bring healing into our lives as His children.

This feature is an update on the appeal of this case as well as look at the ongoing struggles regarding the public display of the 10 Commandments.
For more than 50 years there has been a lot of attention given to church growth models. The rise of youth programs, ministries to single people, and church outreach events are just a few of the many approaches designed to get people into our churches.
However in recent years, many have realized that something more is needed. Last week a conference was held at Trinity International University that equated true gospel growth with people growth.
Many of us support missionaries personally or attend a local church that does. While our financial gifts make their ministry possible what can we do to encourage them in other ways as well? I recently spoke to a number of missionaries that shared testimonies of supporters who have blessed them in unique ways.
