Paul David Tripp: Street-Level Christianity

Paul David Tripp, biblical counselor, author and international speaker says it wasn’t until college that he learned to connect his knowledge about the Bible to life-transformation. “The Bible is a grand redemptive story, but it may be better to say it’s a theologically annotated story. To some degree, every passage tells something about God, about me, about life in the fallen world, about the disaster of sin and the operation of God’s grace—every passage tells me something about every dimension of my life.” Making that connection “was like rockets going off.”—Jessi Strong

Hope for a Troubled Church

In a world that emphasizes prestige and wealth, Antionio Barro of the South American Theological Seminary trains his students to care for the poor and needy. “Other seminaries may train people to become pastors and maintain existing churches. That’s a very old idea. We operate under the integral mission of the church—we want to train somebody to become a pastor of a neighborhood or even of a street. Your ministry exists as a light to your neighborhood; it goes beyond just preaching every Sunday.”—Jessi Strong

Not Your Average Bible Study: The Call of Discipleship: 8 Weeks in the Sermon on the Mount

It’s easy to appear righteous, do good deeds for all to see, and claim allegiance to the Lord (see Matt 6:1–8; 7:21–23). But to uphold God’s perfect standard of righteousness (5:20, 48) we must discipline our thoughts, not just our actions (5:21–30). We need to shift our focus from the paths of earthly kingdoms to ways of God’s kingdom (6:19–24). In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus explains what it means to follow Him.—Miles Custis

Special Section: Reading Joshua for Today

The Great Dilemma of Divine Warfare

“I just can’t imagine believing in a God who would kill innocent people through war,” my friend remarked. And there it was—the thing holding him back from believing in Jesus. We usually place our warring God in the context of a different time or place without really acknowledging the severity of God issuing war. In doing so, we misunderstand what is really going on in our world today. We also miss a theological concept that could positively change the way we worship and live.—John D. Barry

Won’t Back Down

Ensconced in the walls of Jericho, Rahab is doomed. Her dwelling is not just in Jericho but a part of the wall—the very first target on the Israelite hit list. Joshua is planning to “utterly [destroy] by the edge of the sword all who [are] in the city, both men and women, young and old, ox, sheep, and donkey” (Josh 6:21). When confronted with impossible odds, some people shrink in fear while others stand their ground. The book of Joshua is a lesson in the type of courage that springs from faith.—Eli Evans
