I share an ongoing group text with my husband, our two grown children, and our beloved young in-laws who married those sweet kids of ours. I’m sure y’all are involved in your own group threads. We use ours to communicate important information like who was a rock star at soccer practice, who learned to go potty, and who has a loose tooth. As of this writing, those feats have been attributed to the grands, but you never know.
Occasionally, I’ll also hijack our group thread...
“Is God not with us just as much as with a man?”
When women in the 1930s and ’40s challenged the church’s hesitancy to send female missionaries into remote areas, the early leadership of what would eventually become Wycliffe Bible Translators couldn’t argue against them.
So began generations of women learning far-away tongues, recounting Bible stories, and bringing New Testaments into new languages. Over the past several decades, unmarried women in particular have dedicated...
The Jesus Storybook Bible has reached a milestone of two million copies sold. A Bible like no other, it invites children (and adults) to join in the greatest of all adventures: to discover for themselves that Jesus is at the center of God’s great story of salvation—and at the center of their own story too!
Bible Gateway interviewed New York Times bestselling author Sally Lloyd-Jones about her book, The Jesus Storybook Bible (Zonderkidz).
Twelve seconds of silence is an awkward eternity on television. Amr Adeeb, perhaps the most prominent talk show host in Egypt, leaned forward as he searched for a response.
“The Copts of Egypt … are made of … steel!” he finally uttered.
Moments earlier, Adeeb was watching a colleague in a simple home in Alexandria speak with the widow of Naseem Faheem, the guard at St. Mark’s Cathedral in the seaside Mediterranean city.
On Palm Sunday, the guard had redirected a suicide bomber through...
Twelve years into his career, Aaron Shust is continuing to make just as much impact as ever on his listeners. When "My Savior My God" debuted nearly a decade ago, it rocketed Aaron to his position as an artist to watch as he took home the Dove Award for New Artist of the Year in 2007 and hasn't slowed down since. The following hits "My Hope Is In You," "Matchless," "God Of Brilliant Lights" and recent "You Redeem" have continued to encourage fans with Biblical truth wrapped in...

It’s 7:03 a.m., and I’ve already hit snooze twice. The alarm buzzes again. As I try to rouse myself after another late night, the day’s tasks pour into my mind. My wife and I gear up to make breakfast for four hungry kids—one’s hollering from behind a closed door to be let out.
We’ve been in diapers for six years running at our house. Needless to say, sleep is a luxury. So why is it that I often wake up feeling guilty for sleeping? Maybe you’re not like me, but so often...
