Key Connections (May 12, 2016)

May 12, 2016

Thanks for checking out another week of Key Connections, where we connect you to key biblical resources from around the web!

A Secret Way to Kick-Start Your Theological Library (Tim Challies, Challies dot Com)

These journals are full of excellent articles by top writers, scholars, and reviewers. Some are targeted at academics while others are written with a general audience in mind. There is something for everyone!

Trusting God in a Troubled World

Followers of Jesus have hope in a troubled world. Paul describes it as “the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). Another way of saying this would be eternal life: life that is not marred by the brokenness all of us know and are experiencing right now. The glory that followers of...
