On Christian Education

The year 1956 started off on the wrong foot for many people, but especially so for devotees of classical literature who suddenly discovered that their beloved Bard of Avon was being subjected to heavy crossfire on both sides of the Atlantic. Their stumbling block was an upstart New Yorker who began to push even harder […]

Metamorphosis

The creation of God, of which we are witnesses and a part, is not stagnant and dormant, but is constantly changing. We may take a trip and come back after some time and find that many things have changed and appear to be different than what they were when we left. This change which we […]

Acts 8

Introductory Remarks: It is not difficult to see the connection between the introductory verses of this chapter, vss. 1-4, which tell of the rise of persecution, and the remaining section, which treats the missionary-ministry of Philip. Nor is there by any means a lack of connection between this chapter and the general idea of the […]

God’s Way

God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform; He plants His footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm.   Deep in unfathomable mines Of never-failing skill, He treasures up His bright designs And works His sov’reign will.   Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take, The clouds ye so much dread Are […]
