Pastoring in a Pandemic Episode 2: How COVID-19 Exposes & Embarrasses the Prosperity Gospel with Conrad MbeweBy C. Mbewe, J. Leeman | 05.04.2020
Jonathan Leeman chats with Conrad Mbewe, a pastor from Zambia, about how COVID-19 has provided a unique opportunity to expose the lies of the prosperity gospel, and to reach out to those people deceived by it.
What COVID-19 has done is to show us our need of the glorious biblical gospel, which satisfies us whatever circumstances we may be in.

How God Creates a People Does what a church believes about how people become Christians change how we do evangelism? In this concise book, Michael Lawrence explains the doctrine of conversion and helps us consider the relationship between what we believe about how people are saved and our approach to sharing the gospel in the context of […]

You may think you are, but you may not be. After all, Jesus himself said that some people will do seemingly “Christian” things in his name but will not truly know him. Or maybe you know you are not a Christian and you wonder what it really means to be one. Mike McKinley shows us […]
The Gospel Made Visible A church’s life, doctrine, worship, and even polity are important issues. Yet they are so rarely addressed. The Church is Mark Dever’s primer on the doctrine of the church for all who see Scripture alone as a sufficient authority for the doctrine and life of the local church. He explains to […]
