Maggie Grace: A Reflection of the Goodness of the God Who Made Her

Randy and MaggieRecently when we were filming in my office, our Golden retriever Maggie, who is growing more each day, made a guest appearance. Thought I would share it with you. Maggie is a gift from God to Nanci and me. We love dogs in general and this one in particular.

March for Life, Politics, Comments, and Huckabees at Norris Ranch

March for LifeI'm interrupting my new series of blogs on longing. Why? Partly because today, January 22, is the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the most tragic judicial decision in American history. It’s also the annual March for Life, which I’ve participated in, and where my heart has been today.


Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Martin Luther King, Jr.Every year, while Eternal Perspective Ministries doesn’t close for every holiday, I make sure we’re closed on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. I want to send a message that it is a serious and legitimate holiday that deserves observance. It is less about one man than it is about a vision, a movement, a value of reconciliation between people of every tribe, nation and language.

LifeChange booksThis month, three randomly drawn winners will receive a book gift set of Randy’s books The Grace and Truth Paradox, The Purity Principle, and The Treasure Principle. They may be small, but each of these books has a powerful message.

The Grace and Truth Paradox is based on John 1:14, which boils down for us what it means to be Christlike. It means to be full of only two things: Grace and Truth. Instead of a dozen, this gives us just ...

Mike Huckabee, Iowa Caucus and boasting in God Alone

Iowa CaucusLast night we were with a group of folks here in Oregon, at Heidi's restaurant in Gresham, watching the election coverage. The gathering was hosted by nineteen year old brothers Alex and Brett Harris, who run therebelution.com website, which is in my opinion the best place your teenagers can go online.


Money, Possessions and Eternity Book Giveaway, and Info about Randy’s Theology of Money Class

Money, Possessions & EternityThis month we’re giving away Randy’s book Money, Possessions and Eternity to three randomly drawn winners.

In this thoroughly researched and extensively updated classic, Randy Alcorn shows us how to view them accurately—as God's provision for our good, the good of others, and His glory.

This practical and refreshing theology of money contains topical and Scripture indexes, a study guide, and five helpful appendices.


Here’s Randy, explaining more ...

More Than a Seatbelt Ad

Here’s a beautiful seatbelt ad that speaks powerfully about more than seatbelts.

Motivated by Eternal Reward?

left outReaders of my books often question whether the doctrine of eternal rewards is biblical. They say, It seems self-centered to do good works so I will be rewarded.

We have so emphasized the idea of never acting in our own self-interest, that we ignore the continuous appeals of Scripture to be motivated by the fact that following our Lord is not only right, but smart. And sin is not only wrong, but stupid.


My Favorite Fiction

I think of how God had his hand on my life long before I was in high school, when I read for the first time a book that really captivated me...the Bible. That Book came alive to me when I met the Author, who soon became my best friend. Can't wait for all the adventures He has awaiting us, His children, in the new universe.

My Favorite Nonfiction Books

The Knowledge of the Holy

Books and bookstores have had an enormous influence on my own life. I came to Christ as a teenager, at Powell Valley Covenant Church in Gresham, less than a mile from where I live now. My first youth pastor, Paul Siwick, did me a huge favor—he gave me a key to his office, so I could go in any time and read his books, hundreds of them. I read everything I could get my hands on.
