Students Need to Know Why They Know What They Know

Students Need to Know Why They Know What They Know John Calvin. The name evokes images of esoteric theological discussions in medieval European churches.

Sign of a New Reformation?

Could a new reformation be on the horizon? We often talk about and pray for much needed revival, a movement of God that would lead to reformation in the West. We speak of a post-Christian world, a post-modern world. We are watching what happens to societies that sever their Judeo-Christian
