In one of his final books John Stott wrote of the need to learn dependence. It sounds strange in a world that prizes independence and hammers away the need to “believe in yourself”. But Stott was...

Have you noticed that the two great lies in Genesis 3 – you can do what you like and nothing will come of it – continue to thunder down the world? The non-Christian world wants to be able to do...

People who work in radio (especially talk-back radio) claim that it’s more personal than television because it requires careful listening not just careless watching. Married men like me know how...
