My Wife Is a Bible Instructor

IT ALL began one morning during chapel exercises on the campus of Pacific Union College in the fall of 1932. I saw a young lady standing near me who didn't have a songbook. So I handed her one. A year later we were married. It doesn't take much to get big things started. And important things too!

Beware of Constructed Anithesis

A Time to Fear

FEAR GOD. The first two words of the first angel's message are profoundly significant for an age that has become casual and care less toward the Deity and is so often irreverent. There is a logical progression in what the three an gels say, and these very first words need to be understood because they lay the foundation for all of man's relationships to his Maker and to his fellow man. . .

Jesus, Son of God

THE APOSTLE JOHN wrote his Gospel with a specific and very direct purpose. He declares this to be: "Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book: but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name" (chap. 20:30, 31).*

Micah--Condemnation and Compassion

ALTHOUGH he did not begin his ministry in the time of Uzziah, Micah was contemporary with Isaiah, exercising his prophetic office during the reigns of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah in Judah.

Of this group Micah seems to have been the youngest.

A New Day for Evangelism (Part 1)

LEIGHTON FORD correctly declares that the Christian is true to his calling only when he is engaged in evangelizing the world about him. He quotes Archbishop Temple by saying, "The church is the only organization on earth which does not exist for the sake of its members." 1 There has been a tendency among some in recent years to downgrade evangelism. But a new day is dawning for gospel outreach. . .

Fight Truth Decay

A DRAMATIC shift of emphasis seems to be taking place in the religious life of America. Americans are turning to religion again, and young people are at the fore front of this thrust. Church attendance swelled by nearly three million in the past three years, as compared with an increase of only 5.5 million over the twenty-year period between 1951 and 1971.
