Things That Matter

We have all been encouraged by the life story as well as the writings of this conservative commentator. For the Christian, there are a few things that cannot be accepted. Krauthammer does not believe that life begins at conception (p. 200) nor does he believe that creation is acceptable science (p. 210). However, his essays […]

Killing Kennedy

I am reading the trilogy by O’Reilly of Killing Lincoln, which I enjoyed very much, Killing Kennedy, which I finally enjoyed at the end, and, later this year, Killing Jesus, which I am in doubt about.  Kennedy was a unique American President, of which there is no doubt.  He was the first Catholic president coming from a well-to-do […]

The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent

The alarming growth of Islam around the world and especially in the United States is a subject of interest to all Christians.  Lutzer does his usual good job of documenting the rise of Islam with its government of Shariah Law, the Muslim Brotherhood, and its goal of eventual takeover of the whole world in the […]

The Reformation In England

Roger Williams and the Creation of the A...

Although you may not know John Barry (a free lance writer and historian), every American ought to know Roger Williams.  Williams (1603-1683) established the Providence Plantation, later to become Providence, Rhode Island, under democratic governance with the only true separation of church and state in the world.  Williams is also regarded as the cofounder of […]

The Roots of Obama’s Rage

This is the book on which the movie 2014 is based.  What an eye-opener this is!  D’Souza is Indian born and a student of Obama’s life and what makes the man tick.  After thinking he had Obama figured out, he finally came to the conclusion that Obama is living out the life of his activist […]
