Biblical WarfareBook Review: Spiritual Warfare: A Biblical and Balanced Perspective via Reformed Baptist Fellowship

In the subtitle of their book on spiritual warfare, authors Brian Borgman and Rob Ventura promise to provide a perspective that is both biblical and balanced. The prospect of a balanced approach is immediately appealing, given widespread excesses in various branches of modern Christianity on the subject; and I thought it a successful endeavor in that regard.

We go beyond that properly Berean spirit that receives the word with all readiness and searches the Scriptures to find out whether the things being taught are so (Acts 17.11)


Five Mankillers via Scott Brown Online

After many years of ministry to men, it is clear to me how simple men are. They all struggle with the same basic things.  That’s one thing I like about working with men. Men are not complex. I have come across several summaries of the things that kill men off.
