My Next Book

My wife has been after me to write another book. She didn’t suggest subject or title. Her assertion is simply that it is time for me to write again. Perhaps my lifelong partner detects the creative angst and subtle depression that are familiar harbingers of this writer’s muse. At any rate, the pressure is on. […]

The Reincarnation of Adolf Hitler

I’ve been a World War Two buff for many years – books, movies, documentaries – and recently began reading a major account of that war: “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich,” by William L. Shiver. First published in 1961, this 1200-page documentary became an international best seller and is still widely considered to […]

That Day On My Knees…

That Day On My Knees… by Julie Hughes   There are many ways to engage in missions and church planting. If you are planting a successful thriving traditional “hub” style church, and you are satisfied with the amount and quality of fruit, keep on going! But we were not satisfied.

MERCY is perhaps the most defining feature of God’s character as revealed in Jesus Christ. Mercy not only reveals God’s willingness to forgive sins, and Christ’s work to fulfill it, but it also reveals His utter kindness and His desire to “let His face shine upon us” in terms of favor and blessing.

Transformation… and the Turkanas

On a recent trip to Kenya my wife and I, and our Globe Leadership Team, visited a small tribal village on the edge of Kitale. For reasons of war and drought, a few Turkana people migrated here from Kenya’s northern desert regions over sixty years ago. Since then the tribe has lived in filthy squalor […]

The Cost of Discipleship

When we think about the “cost of discipleship,” most of us focus on the personal cost: What I must change, give up, or sacrifice to follow Jesus. There is certainly a case for this in scripture. Jesus’ call to discipleship demands total allegiance, to “give up one’s life,” to “die to self,” to “take up […]

An Opportune Trouble

I don’t normally comment on current affairs, but decided to share a few words that I hope are helpful to everyone who is concerned about the state of our nation. First of all, I believe our nation – our culture, our economy, and our political and judicial framework – will continue to descend into more […]
