Interview with Randy Alcorn on Prolife Issues

By Brian Womack | January 1, 1992
Even in this world I’m optimistic about the opportunity to impact and influence all kinds of people. I’ve seen joy and peace in the lives of many women who’ve had an experience of forgiveness after their abortions and many women who, as a result of intervention, spared the lives of their children. 

Children: Three Views

By Randy Alcorn | October 1, 1991
When one of my students in an ethics class at Multnomah Bible College paraphrased Scripture on the subject of children, it inspired me to do the same. One of these statements is from God (Psalm 128:3-5), the others from a godless world. Can you choose which?

Two Sources of Self-Esteem: Secular & Christian

By Randy Alcorn | October 1, 1991
Everywhere in the secular media I’ve been hearing and reading about the critical problem of poor self-esteem among our young people. A bad self-image is being cited as the cause of teen suicide, drug abuse, crime and violence. Educators and community leaders are trying to find ways to help children bolster their self-esteem.

How Can We Help Churches in the Soviet Union?

By Randy Alcorn | March 18, 1991
Randy Alcorn traveled to the Soviet Union in 1991. "The book of Acts." That's what kept going through my mind. I've never seen greater spiritual hunger and works of the Holy Spirit than in the Soviet Union these lasts few weeks. I got home yesterday and my mind is still spinning. Lenin is the false God, the antichrist of Marxism. Note the biblical ring to this Russian saying: "Lenin was, and is, and evermore shall be."

Civil Disobedience to Save Unborn Children: Is "Rescuing" Right?

By Randy Alcorn | March 15, 1991

The purpose is to prevent access to the clinic, and to thereby save the lives of unborn children who would otherwise be killed shortly after their mothers enter the building.

To the Ends of the Earth

By Steve Saint | January 11, 1991
For years I’d thought Timbuktu was just a made-up name for “the ends of the earth.” When I found out it was a real place in Africa, I developed an inexplicable fascination for it. It was in 1986 on a fact-finding trip to West Africa for Mission Aviation Fellowship that this fascination became an irresistible urge. Timbuktu wasn’t on my itinerary, but I knew I had to go there. Once I arrived, however, I discovered I was in trouble.

Martin Luther King's Letter from a Birmingham Jail

By Martin Luther King, Jr. | April 16, 1990
Let us all hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away and the deep fog of misunderstanding will be lifted from our fear-drenched communities, and in some not too distant tomorrow the radiant stars of love and brotherhood will shine over our great nation with all their scintillating beauty.

A Biblical Perspective to Counseling

By Dr. Jay Adams | November 10, 1988
Jay Adams is the author of Competent to Counsel and many other biblically-oriented works on Christian counseling. Over the years his writings have been a source of controversy because he has held to the belief that Christian counseling should be solidly based on the Scriptures, and that modern psychology has no authoritative basis on which to guide people.

Lessons From the Life of a Father

By Nancy Leigh DeMoss | November 1, 1987
