As legendary Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tim Brown was granted all the fame, fortune, success and women he needed as he earned the nickname of "Mr. Raider" in the '90s, there was one thing that was desperately missing from the hall-of-famer's life that made him dislike what he saw in the mirror — a relationship with Jesus.
The 49-year-old Brown, a 2015 inductee into the Pro Hall of Fame who is sixth all-time in NFL career receiving yards, explains in his new book, The Making of a Man: How Men and Boys Honor God and Live With Integrity, that despite all his success, he didn't consider himself to be a man until he put his full faith in the Lord during the summer before his ninth NFL season.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Brown explained that he had a strict religious upbringing attending the Church of God in Christ services about three times a week as a child. But by the time he went off to college at Notre Dame and became the first receiver ever to win a Heisman Trophy, he felt ashamed to call himself a Christian because he was not guarding his "spiritual heart" or living by God's design. more >>
One year after nearly losing his life in Liberia, American Ebola survivor, Dr. Kent Brantly, is speaking out about why he has no regrets about serving as a medical missionary in the West African nation. He also shares his hopes that his story might inspire others to answer God's call in their own lives.
In July 2014, Brantly, who was serving in Monrovia with the medical mission group Samaritan's Purse, contracted Ebola — also known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever — while treating sick patients. He was given the experimental drug ZMapp and flown back to the United States where he underwent three weeks of intensive treatment at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital.

An irony of American politics today is that conservative policies have helped lift the most people out of poverty, but most Americans don't know that because conservatives have been horrible at communicating the success of their own policies, Arthur Brooks writes in his new book, The Conservative Heart: How To Build a Fairer, Happier, and More Prosperous America.
In a July 7 interview with The Christian Post, Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute, added that Christians are especially well poised to deliver the message that public policy should aim for the benefit of people, especially the poor and powerless.
"This could really be the true Christian moment," Brooks said. more >>
NEW YORK — Ever since witnessing just how much evangelism coupled with good works can impact communities and even bring Christians together, Kevin Palau, son of popular Latin American evangelist Luis Palau, says he has been captivated by the idea of "unity."
It all began 30 years ago, when he started working with The Luis Palau Association, the organization supporting his father's global evangelism ministry. But instead of working there for three decades, Palau was only supposed to be at the nonprofit for one year. That's what he had in mind anyway.
As Palau explains in his book Unlikely: Setting Aside Our Differences to Live Out the Gospel, after graduating from Wheaton College, he was hoping that a stint supporting his father's ministry would be a good way to help pay off the student loans he had accumulated over the years. more >>
