Resources: doctrine

I notice that sometimes you allude to science fiction, including Star Trek and Star Wars. Do you recommend that Christian young people get into the Star Wars movies and books?

I enjoy science fiction and I do like Star Wars, especially the original three movies. However, Star Wars is a very poor place to get a theology, and that’s my biggest problem with its influence on the young, who don’t yet have the filters in place to screen out the heresy. If kids and parents can sit down, like we did with our daughters, and discuss the theological errors with “the Force,” that can be very good for them (and us). Some things are better not to get exposed to, but some our kids will inevitably be exposed ...

Biblical Inerrancy and Fuller Seminary

Believing-the-Bible Book List

There are 3 categories: The formation of the canon, The reliability of the New Testament, and Refuting the claims of some recent critics.

A Compelling Reason for Rigorous Training of the Mind

I was reading and meditating on the book of Hebrews recently, when it hit me forcefully that a basic and compelling reason for education—the rigorous training of the mind—is so that a person can read the Bible with understanding.

A Surprise Endorsement for Doctrine

God gives good press to doctrine. But surveys of evangelicals usually do not—until recently.

Distinctive Teachings of Biblical Christianity

Biblical Christianity is fundamentally a relationship with Christ, not a religion about Christ.

What do you think of Mitch Albom’s book The Five People You Meet in Heaven?

Discerning Christians with a strong biblical theology can pick out the good and toss the bad. Unfortunately, most who read the book (and see the movie) will not do that, and indeed may be incapable of doing so. They will tend to swallow not only the true parts or the conditionally true (if....then) parts, but all of it, including the false assumptions and wishful thinking that underlie it.

Heaven: Our Certain Hope

There are many rooms in my Father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. … When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.  John 14:2-3

Set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits at God’s right hand.…. Let heaven fill your thoughts. Colossians 3:1-2

For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down—when we die and leave these bodies—we will have a home in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands.  2 Corinthians 5:1

Elyon: What Does it Mean?

Why do you use the name Elyon to refer to God in several of your books? from Randy Alcorn on Vimeo.



I’m often asked why I use the term “Elyon” in reference to God in my novel Deadline (and again in Dominion). Though I am comfortable making up names for men and angels for the purposes of fiction, I would not presume to make up a name for God. That’s why I chose a name that, while unfamiliar to many people, is specifically revealed in Scripture.

The Hebrew “Elyon” occurs thirty-one times in the Old Testament. The equivalent ...
