A New Fantasy Novel that Puts God at the Center!
September 04, 2014

The Siren Song of Treason By Robert Knight, Contributing Writer “The Palace” by Lee Duigon, Storehouse Press, Vallecito, California, 321-page large paperback Reviewed by Robert Knight If you take Mark Twain’s “The Prince and the Pauper,” place it in a post-modern world of donkey carts, add magical characters and unexplained mysteries, and, most importantly, put God at the center, you have Lee Duigon’s latest fantasy novel.

These ads seem to have no-cut contracts with all pro sports—baseball, football, basketball, hockey, golf, all of them. It is impossible to watch any professional sporting broadcasts without being molested by these ads. Most everyone whom I have talked to about these commercials finds them annoying bu...

What’s Next After GOD’S NOT DEAD?

Is Church Accountability the Key to Overcoming Drug Addiction? By Michelle S. Lazurek, Contributing Writer A few years ago, I walked into what I thought would be a normal small group. I slumped down onto the couch, took off my coat, and placed my Bible and study book on the coffee table. As people began to enter, we made idle chitchat while we scoffed down the many refreshments on the table before us. As the group began to share about their weeks, they shared superficially about their jobs, families and extracurricular activities. One ordinarily talkative man remained eerily silent. When we got to him, he uttered one word as tears streamed down his face: “Help!” In that moment, I knew this was no ordinary meeting. We all gathe...
