References:About 72% of Americans plan to celebrate Halloween this Fall. That exceeds the 67% of those who celebrate (or recognize) Christ's resurrection in the Spring. Kevin Swanson interacts with a Newsweek (Daily Beast) article on the rise of the horror genre. Why do parents dress their children up as witches, pirates, and ax murderers?

J. C. Ryle provides the very best commentary and devotional exposition of the book of Matthew that can be found. We could do no better than to use his expositions of the Gospel of Matthew for our Family Bible Study Guide Series. Writing in the 19th century as an evangelical Anglican pastor, Ryle intended these “Expository Thoughts” for family worship. His writing is strikingly simple, profound, practical, and passionate at the same time.
