Whatever You Do: Stewardship and the Purpose of Life

By Karin Stetina Jan. 30, 2017 9:00 a.m. Church Life, Marriage and Family, New Testament, Old Testament, Spiritual Formation, Theology

What is the purpose of life? How does work fit into the purpose? As a college student I spent many hours contemplating these important questions and many others, such as:

  • Do we have free will or are we predestined?
  • What is the best form of worship- hymns or praise songs?
  • How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

Maybe you have asked some of these same burning questions? ...

The Importance of Personal Devotions

By William Lane Craig Jan. 27, 2017 9:00 a.m. Philosophy, Spiritual Formation

Good Morning Dr Craig,

Thank you so much for having answered my last e-mail in your reasonable faith podcast of 11-08-2015. I listened it in the bus to work, and was really surprised and glad to tears. Thank you.

I've read with a great interest your Q&A #52, about personal productivity, and it has raised more questions to me (as I begin to write myself and find a way to worship by writing):

Do you pray during your work, Augustine style? How do you pray for your writings in general?

How do you do your devotions? ...

A "Chance" Encounter with the Miraculous

By Sean McDowell Jan. 25, 2017 9:00 a.m. Apologetics, Evangelism

Last week I had an experience I will remember for a long time. Since it was raining outside, we took my three kids and some of their cousins to Big Air Trampoline Park to get some of their energy out.

The place was packed full of young kids and their parents. While my kids were enjoying the trampolines, dodge ball, and the climbing wall, I found an open seat in the small café to edit some of the chapters for an update I am working on with my father for his classic book, Evidence that Demands a Verdict ...

When Did Jesus Bear the Penalty for Sin?

By William Lane Craig Jan. 20, 2017 9:00 a.m. Philosophy

Dear Dr. Craig,

I have a question regarding the chronology of the atonement.

I know that, in one sense, the atonement encompasses all of Jesus' life in that it involves the imputation of his righteousness to us and not only our sin to him, and therefore we can say that everything from his birth, the silent years of his life, his baptism, temptation, etc. are all a part of the atonement.

On the other hand, the bible seems to focus specifically on the death of Jesus on the cross ...
