Let's be honest, when someone tells you what their favorite Bible translation is, you fairly or unfairly make certain immediate assumptions about that person; caricatures will pop into your mind.
For example, if someone says their preferred translation is the NIV Bible, what immediately comes to your mind? What about the King James? ESV? See what we mean? What you think and what we think may be different, but that point is . . . something does pop up.
And, when it comes to our favorite Bible translations, we can get pretty defensive. Bible translations can often be hot-button topics for believers that can cause arguments, debates, and division. more >>
New Testament scholar and author Robert Hutchinson writes in a new book that recent archaeological discoveries and biblical scholarship prove not only Jesus' existence but that biblical accounts of his life and death are more accurate than secular scholars have led people to believe.
While atheist and secular scholars have over the last century progressed the idea that there is no proof that Jesus existed or that He was and acted exactly how He was depicted in the New Testament, Hutchinson highlights in his recent book, Searching for Jesus, various archaeological finds and research from the past few years that disprove the theories progressed by secular "mythicists."
The discoveries that Hutchinson mentions in his book, he says, disprove theories by scholars such as Bart Ehrman and Robert Schweitzer, who in the early 1900s theorized that Jesus was nothing more that an apocalyptic prophet. more >>

Seems like comic book movies are constantly trying to push new borders on content and storylines. The latest film in the X-Men franchise might be pushing it on religion.
In a trailer released earlier this month by 20th Century Fox, the 2016 film "X-Men: Apocalypse" finds the group of superpower-laden heroes battling an ancient villain named Apocalypse.
"I've been called many things over many lifetimes," says Apocalypse, who lists Yahweh alongside the Egyptian god Ra and the Hindu god Krishna as the names he's been called. more >>
Below is part one of a two-part interview with well-known conservative and Christian author David Limbaugh on his new book, The Emmaus Code. Limbaugh wrote his latest book to help unlock the complexities many have in reading and studying the Old Testament, including many Christians.
Limbaugh argues the Old Testament continually points to the person and work of Jesus Christ and the plan to reconcile us to the Trinitarian fellowship and love of God.
CP: While you have written a good deal on Christianity, you are primarily known for political commentary. What prompted a book about the Christocentric nature of the Old Testament? more >>
With the April 2016 premiere of the sixth season of HBO's "Game of Thrones" drawing closer and still no sixth installment to the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series in sight, fans of the George R.R. Martin novels are on tenterhooks and keeping a close watch on the author to try to guess when the new novel will be released.
Neither Martin nor HBO, which has been producing the "Game of Thrones TV series since 2011, have revealed whether or not "Winds of Winter" will be released before Season 6 premieres, nor even whether or not the author has finished writing the book. Martin did, however, admit at a talk at Northwestern University earlier this month that he is a very slow writer and that he didn't expect that the show would catch up to him, as he had such a huge lead. "Game of Thrones," the first volume from the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, was published in 1996.
Now, fans have taken a recent blog post by the "Game of Thrones" author as a hint about the release date of the much-anticipated "Winds of Winter," which "A Song of Ice and Fire" readers have been waiting for since 2011's "A Dance of Dragons." more >>
