The Vanishing Power Of Death
Death no longer has dominion over the one who follows Christ. When the tomb was found empty, death lost its power. In “The Vanishing Power of Death,” Pastor Lutzer considers the evidence for the resurrection of Christ and its impact on the disciples. From Mary weeping at the tomb, to Thomas' doubting, to Christ's counseling session with two discouraged disciples on the road to Emmaus, Pastor Lutzer shows readers that the experiences of the disciples are poignant and relevant for believers today. This is a book that is sure to invigorate your faith and make a lasting difference in the hands of a friend.

We’ve all been tempted to think that being a Christian means that we miss out on “all the fun.” That’s a complete lie, and we need to combat it, especially since even some Christians fall prey to this deception.

Is it possible that God planned for Eve to pick that fatal fruit from the tree in the Garden of Eden? Join us on an astonishing journey into God’s intentions for the newly created human race. It is a journey that may not go where you think.

If God does not know our future decisions, we’re all in big trouble. Providentially, He does know, despite some recent theological objections. So what exactly does God know about us?

Some theologians say that God has chosen to limit His omniscience to let us fully express our free wills. But what does the Bible say? Does God truly know everything, including the future, all at once? 
August 13, 2018
Some theologians see our lives as a chessboard. We make a move, and then God responds with a countermove. They maintain that God gives us free will, and then adapts Himself to our choices as we make them. But what does the Bible say?
