Leventhal, professor of church missions and ministries and director of the graduate school of ministry program at Southern Evangelical Seminary, told those gathered at SES' 23rd annual National Conference on Christian apologetics in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Friday that Jesus even appeared to people during the Holocaust.
As an example, Leventhal shared the testimony of a Jewish man named Joseph who during the Holocaust was forced to work in a Nazi labor camp. more >>
If God is as loving as people say, why does He condemn people who don't keep His statutes? Why are nonbelievers banished to spend eternity in Hell? These questions are pondered by many, but Christian apologist Lee Strobel says God doesn't send people to Hell — they send themselves.

While she never thought about writing a book until evangelical publishing company Zondervan approached her with the idea, which she initially declined, after a few days God began to give her a vision of what He wanted her to write about, which led to Finding Your Voice. Grant said she wrote the book to help others "find their God-given voice" in a world that's filled with noise and compromise.
The Seattle, Washington, native said many people have mistaken the book for being about singing or the music industry, but it's actually about finding one's own voice and purpose. more >>
