Could the appearance of a hummingbird, a flock of geese, or a beautiful sunset bring comfort and peace to grieving loved ones following an untimely loss? Does God send such signs to his beloved to help the process of mending their hearts?
Recently our dear friend Kathy Buskirk passed into the waiting arms of the Lord after a valiant battle with cancer. At the relatively young age of 60, her loss was devastating to her friends and family.

An evangelical apologist’s characterization of one biblical verse has called into question his entire 700-page book and his belief in the inerrancy of Scripture, with two respected theologians saying the matter demonstrates that it is not sufficient to affirm biblical inerrancy in principle without also affirming it in details.
In “The Resurrection of Jesus: A New Historiographical Approach,” Mike Licona presents a defense of the historicity of the bodily resurrection of Jesus from the dead, arguing that Jesus’ resurrection must have been literal.
