We had a brief 'holiday' for the month of March but we are back with brand new links!
Remember, we are a 'filing-cabinet' style website. This means that our site has hundreds and hundreds of links on many differnent topic areas.
And we have just added some more!
For example - check out these 3 articles:
- "Predestination: Should We Even Talk About It?" by Daniel Hyde (Ligonier Ministries).
- The Case for the Reliability of the Old Testament (Free Bible Insert) (Cold-Case Christianity)
- 'The Conflicting Genealogies of Jesus' by Sean McDowell (Conversant Life).
Please read on for more additions...
It was towards mid-afternoon in the Middle East. You know, the sleepy section of the afternoon where you feel like resting and letting your thoughts wander, as in a dream.
Well, that’s exactly what I was doing. Just walking lazily through the desert oasis at Ein Gedi in Israel; allowing my restful mind to wander before an abrupt stunned fear grabbed hold of me in a controllable, yet unbelievable way.
Why? What happened? You will have to read on…
We are at it again! New additions this month abound! This one, for example, is one of the best sites we have linked: Third Millennium Ministries.Their mission is to prepare Christian leaders by providing biblical education, for the world, for free. The gospel of Christ is their passion so you will find in-depth biblical education for Christian leaders around the world in their languages, for their lands, and absolutely free.

As we approach the end of the year it will evident to most of us that we will actually have time to read a book! The following book is contemporary to say the least and was born out of a series of blogs by Dr. Keith Mathison.

Hi everyone! This month we have added some more excellent links, articles and videos.
For example, this is very good: THE ONE MINUTE APOLOGIST which has its own YouTube channel with hundreds of videos on various apologetic topics! We have actually included this one on our site: Are All Religions Basically The Same?
We highly recommend another dedicated YouTube channel well worth viewing: White Horse Inn. This is also one of our favourite podcasts. This particular channel features excellent videos that are consistent with the White Horse Inn radio broadcasts.
Read on for more, including Christian Audio's free eBook of the month...
Reformation Trust is offering a free eBook for the month of November only.
Steven Lawson’s 'The Gospel Focus of Charles Spurgeon' is all about one of our favourite Baptists - Charles Spurgeon of course!
He was the eloquent preacher of nineteenth-century London fondly known today as “the prince of preachers.” In this book Lawson 'shows that Spurgeon fearlessly taught the doctrines of grace and simultaneously held forth the free offer of salvation in Jesus Christ.'
This critical balance between divine sovereignty in salvation and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ is in full view in this book and we here, at Christian Faith, hope you take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
Offer concludes: November 30, 2013.
Once again Reformation Trust is offering a free eBook for this month only.
This book is called 'John Calvin: A Heart for Devotion, Doctrine, and Doxology' by various contributors such as Jay Adams, Eric Alexander Thabiti Anyabwile, Joel Beeke, Jerry Bridges, Sinclair Ferguson, Robert Godfrey, D. G. Hart, Michael Horton, Phillip R. Johnson, Steven Lawson, John MacArthur, Keith Mathison, Richard Phillips, Harry Reeder, Philip Graham Ryken, Derek Thomas, and Thomas Ascol.
The eBook explores Calvin 'the man; his work (as a Reformer, a churchman, a preacher, a counselor, and a writer); and his teachings.'
Offer concludes: October 31, 2013.
