God Uses Young, Brief Lives: Nabeel Qureshi, The Problem of Evil, and The Sovereignty of God

As I write these first few words (originally on Saturday, 9/16/17), I just heard that Nabeel Qureshi has passed away at the age of 34 with complications due originally to stage 4 stomach cancer. I first heard the news through Justin Taylor’s site here. If you want a good overview of his life and some Read more about God Uses Young, Brief Lives: Nabeel Qureshi, The Problem of Evil, and The Sovereignty of God[…]

“Honey, We’re Engaged! Let’s Go Suffer & Die for Jesus!”-Adoniram Judson’s Letter to Ann Before Their Marriage

In my last post here I included Adoniram Judson’s letter to his father-in-law asking for Ann’s hand in marriage (you can also learn more about Judson himself and his missionary endeavors in my last post as well). Now I want us to look at Judson’s letter to Ann just a tad over a month before they Read more about “Honey, We’re Engaged!
