THE DEAD LETTERS
Quote: Phillip Brooks:
The Bible is like a telescope. If a man looks through his telescope he sees worlds beyond; but if he looks at his telescope, he does not see anything but that.
The Bible is a thing to be looked through to see that

BIBLE IS ALL ABOUT JESUS
The university library in Kansas is home to a very unusual Bible. At first it looks very ordinary, but when the gilt edges are slightly parted, it reveals a picture of Christ with his disciples in the upper room. Underneath the picture are the words; "It is myself,

THE BORN-AGAIN VASE
A number of years ago I had the opportunity to tour the Villeroy and Boch porcelain factory in Torgau, Germany. Porcelain is one of the most beautiful and enduring things that human beings can make. Even today much of what we know about ancient cultures comes from what they

PENNIES FROM HEAVEN
Many of the farms in the state of Nebraska are right on the edge of the fertile plains that receive enough rainfall to produce abundant crops. Some years the yields can be a little lower simply because they are not blessed with as much rain as other farmers. Being so

PEALE AND PAUL
Many of you are familiar with Norman Vincent Peale’s book, The Power of Positive Living. It’s a good book. It won’t get you to heaven, but it will really help you approach life with the right kind of outlook.

ALLOW THE WORD TO DISTURB YOU
"We need to repent of the haughty way in which we sometimes stand in judgment upon Scripture and must learn to sit humbly under its judgment instead. If we come to Scripture with our minds made up, expecting to hear from it only an echo of our own thoughts and
History of Israel stands as a witness...
About 300 years ago, the King of Sweden was having personal doubts about God’s existence and the Bible's divine nature. He called for Count Von Zinzendorf, who was the bishop of the Moravian Church, to provide evidence about God’s existence and Divine
THE BIBLE IS LIKE AN IPOD
Several years ago I purchased an iPod, and at first I was delighted to hear music. I can listen to music for literally hours upon hours without having to flip a tape or put in another CD.

ADDING TO THE WORD
Years ago, my Dad's physician told him to take one aspirin a day for his heart. My Dad was a very smart man, but he figured if one aspirin is good, two would be better. So my dad "added" to the word of his physician, and day after day my dad took two aspirin.

KNOW THE TRUE FROM THE FALSE
I have heard and read several variations of this story. Some relate it to training bank tellers, some to treasury agents, and some to FBI agents. I don’t know which, if any, is true. The story makes a good point even if none of the stories are true.

It was early in 1945. As United States forces pushed deep into Okinawa they came across a village unlike any they had ever seen. Here at Shimabuku they were met and welcomed by two old men who invited the troops in as "fellow Christians."

THE TRUTH OF THE BOOK
John Ortberg states
