Once again archaeology confirms biblical history. I'll explain the latest find — just bring along your sense of humor.
The late Chuck Colson was known for many things: his role in the Watergate scandal, his subsequent conversion to Christ; his work with prisoners around the world, and his efforts in promoting a Christian worldview.
But to his closest associates, Chuck was also known for his sense of humor. He loved practical jokes, and as odd as this sounds, jokes about bathroom mishaps — the kind of potty humor made famous by humorist Dave Barry. more >>
Former Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson has slammed the United Nations and UNESCO for passing a resolution last week that denies the Christian and Jewish connection to the Temple Mount and Western Wall in Jerusalem.

Strobel's desire to verify the claim led him to consult an expert on the Crucifixion, Dr. Alexander Metherell, MD, PhD. more >>
How do you read a scroll you can't open? Modern technology provides the answer, and shows that Scripture is more durable than the material it's written on.
Is the Bible we read today the same Bible that was written millennia ago by prophets and apostles? That was a question that consumed scholars for generations.
You see, prior to 1947, the earliest manuscript copies of the Old Testament were from the Middle Ages. Critics seized on this as a major hole in the Bible's reliability. How, they asked, could we trust a text that had been copied hundreds of times in the thousands of years since its authors wrote it? Surely it had suffered corruption through all those duplications. more >>
