Alisa Childers Blog From Alisa's bio: As a lifelong church-goer, follower of Jesus, and former CCM recording artist with ZOE Girls, I experienced a period of profound doubt about my faith in my mid-thirties. I felt as though I had been tossed in a stormy ocean of uncertainty with no life jacket or lifeboat in sight. I didn't know where to find answers to my questions, or if answers existed at all. Did I have to accept it all on some kind of blind faith? This is my journey from unreasoned doubt into vibrant, intellectually informed faith.
Whether you're a seeker, a doubting Christian, or strong Christian wanting to become better at articulating your faith, I pray that this website will be a lifeboat for you. So jump in and let’s tackle the tough questions together.

He has been awarded fellowships to Yaddo and the MacDowell Colony for his short stories. His cult-classic Don’t You Believe It! — a book-length parody of the Ripley’s “Believe It Or Not!” books — led novelist Mark Helprin to dub Metaxas “the true heir to the Far Side’s Gary Larson.”

Christian Life Resources Excellent website for more in-depth, yet understandable research and study of those nagging questions about innerrancy of Scripture. Their website states that they are The Simple, Powerful Way to Dig into Biblical Truth Every Day. One of the questions that drew me to this website was a posting titled Was the New Testament Written in Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek?  Their website in a nutshell is summed up as We exist to empower believers everywhere to go deeper in the Bible through a fusion of Bible study resources and powerful technology. Your questions, biblical answers. Short, readable, yet compelling articles relating to many questions one might have regarding Christianity and the beliefs that are contained within it. From simple questions relating to God, Jesus Christ, Salvation, Holy Spirit, the Bible, end times, physical health, sleep, Christian history and a lot more to more complex ones like What are Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus?, the website delivers a lot of thoughtful responses to those questions that can be a great resource for anyone's journey through life.

Most Christians Don't Know This About Dinosaurs Interesting YouTube video posted by Answers in Genesis that goes into the questions we all have had from our youth - the struggle to align the Bible with what our current culture and age tell us about the age of the earth and its origins and about reality itself. Our worldview certainly filters what we will be able to detect about reality, and this video delivers on that essential question.

Christian Thinkers Teaching Pastors and Christians How to Become Thinkers & Thinkers How to Become Christians.

Norm Geisler Dr. Norman Geisler, PhD, was a prolific author, veteran professor, speaker, lecturer, traveler, philosopher, apologist, evangelist, and theologian. A mentor to countless apologists and theologians, several consider him to be the grandfather of classical, evangelical Christian apologetics–a wide-ranging, holistic apologetic that would encompass foundational matters like knowing truth about reality, to knowing God exists by reasoning from effects to their causes, to the historical trustworthiness of the four gospel accounts, to the fact of the bodily resurrection of Jesus from the dead, to the full deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, to Jesus’s view of the Bible as without error.

G.K. Chesterton was the best writer of the 20th century. He said something about everything and he said it better than anybody else. But he was no mere wordsmith. He was very good at expressing himself, but more importantly, he had something very good to express. The reason he was the greatest writer of the 20th century was because he was also the greatest thinker of the 20th century.

Mickey Robinson I first heard of Mickey on an Eric Metaxis podcast. Amazing life he has lived! He has been through life and death situations and experienced some of what I experienced growing up in the 60's and 70's. Very relatable, and very intriguing.

Torah Resource I found this website when studying about forgiveness. Insightful content that is a lot like a commentary on Scripture, but much more than just a commentary. This is a good go-to website when one has questions that need contemplative and well researched answers based on the Scripture that has been passed on to us from the earliest times.

Torah Anytime Not technically a Christian resource, but a website resource that reveals much about the nature of God and the understanding God has built into his special relationship with the Jewish people and is available to all who seek Him. This website is not for people who do not like to think, be challenged, or grow in their understanding of the world God created and His love for us as human beings.

Sarah Dengler's YouTube Video on Slavery - "This Made Me so Mad! - Facts About Slavery" resonated with my Pennsylvania ancestry heritage - people that were willing to give their lives to eradicate slavery in this land. This 16 minute video that reacts to Thomas Sowell's "Facts about Slavery never mentioned in school" will lead you to question and reject today's race charlatans who are masters of historical revisionism.

Barnhardt In the FAQ section Ann answers the question, Are you crazy or otherwise mentally ill? Her answer: You wish. That would make me so much easier to dismiss, wouldn’t it?  My stock answer is, “If fitting in to this culture and society constitutes sanity, then please God, let me never be sane.”  Ann Barnhardt is excellent in covering medical, financial and Christian / Catholic news.

For Liberty And Justice
If you want to understand why Tarrant County, one of the large urban areas in our nation that has remained conservative while every other urban area has leftist political leaders that are destroying civil society, this podcast will provide critical clues to the reasons we are different. I recommend Season 1 Episode 6 for one of the first one to listen to. I haven't listened to them all yet, but they are on my TODO list now that I've discovered this rich resource. And I've met some of the people involved in these podcasts, and sense a solidarity with them because of our common faith in Jesus Christ.

Pushing Back the Frontiers of Ignorance A friend's blogging website, one that has an annual book list I look forward to each year. His family and our family shared good times as we fellowshipped at a church together and participated in the Best Robotics program, taking one of the designs to a state competition.
