  • God's Greatest Gift

    Matthew Harmon
    God's Greatest Gift Here in this simple phrase we have mysteries so great that the angels desperately long to understand. In a nutshell, the greatest gift that God gives us is himself.

  • The Holy Spirit and the Scandal of Christ's Birth

    Douglas Sean O'Donnell

  • The Gospel in Joshua

    ESV Gospel Transformation Bible
    The Gospel in Joshua The spotlight is not on Joshua’s moral example or on timeless principles of conduct but on Yahweh’s fulfillment of a historical promise. Even Joshua’s name (“Yahweh Saves!”) points away from himself to the real hero of the story. Joshua is a story of grace.
