Lee Strobel Changes Tune on Near-Death Experiences in New Film <em>Case for Heaven</em>

Apologist and author Lee Strobel once was a skeptic of near-death experiences. No more. The author of such bestsellers as The Case for Christ, Strobel said he changed his mind on the validity of near-death experiences due to their ability – at least in some cases – to be corroborated.

And I am praying that we will seek in this new year to be the change we wish to see: Christ-followers others can follow to Christ.

God's Call to Persistent Courage

God's Call to Persistent Courage

This week, we have focused on the need for Christians to choose courageous hope in the face of rising cultural opposition. We have identified the three components of hope, discussed the need for sacrificial faith in helping our nation turn to God and his word, and embraced God’s call to empowering boldness through dependent prayer. Today, let’s turn for encouragement to this paradoxical fact: our highest sacrifice for Jesus in this world leads instantly to the highest reward in the next.
