Bob Dylan Finally Reacts to Winning the Nobel Prize

Bob Dylan finally responded to winning the Nobel Prize for literature. He accepted the award in a speech given on his behalf by the U.S. ambassador in Sweden, Azita Raji. Though Dylan wasn’t able to attend the event in person, the 13-time Grammy award-winner wrote in his speech that he was still there “in spirit.” Dylan went on to express his gratitude in joining the "rare company" of Nobel-winning writers, and prepared to accept his award by reading the works of past winners such as Kipling, Shaw, Thomas Mann, Pearl Buck and Ernest Hemingway. Bob Dylan winning the Nobel Prize in Literature came as a shock to most of us, but none seemed as surprised as Dylan himself. In his speech Dylan wrote, "If someone had ever told me that I had the slightest chance of winning the Nobel Prize, I would have to think that I'd have about the same odds as standing on the moon." The folk-singer paralleled his literary win to the writings of William Shakespeare saying, “I would reckon he thought of himself as a dramatist. The thought that he was writing literature couldn’t have entered his head. His words were written for the stage. Meant to be spoken, not read.” Patti Smith followed Dylan’s speech with a cover of his song "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall." The rock legend seemed a little nervous and even paused halfway through her performance to apologize for forgetting some of the words. Smith’s rendition was heartwarming nevertheless. You can watch her touching tribute here:

5 Reasons You Should Get Apologetics Training

1. Apologetics Will Help You Serve the Church. As my friend Tom Gilson wrote in his article for A New Kind of Apologist, one key feature of apologetics is to be a servant for the church. There is a huge need for some Christians in the church to have formal training on how to best answer some of the toughest questions about God, the Bible, evil and more. I often encourage my Biola M.A. students to offer to serve their pastor by doing research for sermons, being available to counsel young people with difficult questions, and being willing to offer apologetics classes for people in the church. The first reason to get formal apologetics training is to better serve the local church. Just as every church needs a teaching pastor, worship leader, and children’s director, every church needs a trained apologist .

The Humility of a King | Stand to Reason

The divergence of Jesus’ rule from Pharisaic rule is stark. Throughout his gospel, Matthew addresses the emerging power of the Pharisaic rabbis. His gospel was likely written in the Syria-Palestine area, where the rabbis exercised serious influence in Jesus’ day. Matthew records the growing conflict between Jesus and the Jewish religious leaders. Things start “heating up” in chapter 12, as we see the religious leaders’ initial rejection of Jesus and his authority. In chapter 14, Jesus withdraws with his disciples, but in chapters 15 and 16, He encounters more resistance from the scribes, Pharisees, and Sadducees. The confrontations continue in chapters 19, 21, and 22. After Jesus silences the Sadducees in 22:23-46, the religious leaders do not “dare from that day on to ask Him another question.”

With the rules of evidence clearly in mind, he examines the case for the existence of God, the reality of dualism, the reliability of the Biblical text, and the deity of Jesus. Along the way we also take a critical look at the nature of the Christian Church in America today. Why are so many young people leaving the church? Why are so many older Christians apathetic and unengaged? Why do so few Christians understand what they believe, and why do even fewer understand why they believe it? Join J. Warner each week as he sorts through the evidence for the Christian Worldview and examines the life of the Church.


Hand out two pieces of paper to each person in the group. Say the Lord’s Prayer together. When it comes to the line ‘forgive us our sins’, take a moment of quiet to each write on one of the pieces of paper the things for which you are asking God’s forgiveness. Then gather the papers in a large saucepan, light a match and let the papers burn. If you have an open fireplace, burn that the papers there. As you say the line ‘as we forgive those who sin against us’, take Your second piece of paper and write down the names of those you need to forgive. Ask for God’s help to forgive these people, and again gather the papers and burn them. Then continue saying the rest of the Lord’s Prayer together.

2016 TGC Book Awards

This year we unveil our inaugural TGC Book Awards. Working with  Council members  and key contributors, our editors have each identified one winner and one runner-up book in an area they regularly cover for TGC. We solicited nominations from various publishers, considered them alongside other noteworthy titles, narrowed the finalists to four for each category, sent those titles to the judges, and awaited their decisions. 

10 Seven Women: And the Secret of Their Greatness eBook: Eric Metaxas: Kindle Store

Eric Metaxas's latest book, "7 Women and the Secret of Their Greatness", is a collection of mini-biographies of seven women selected from various periods in history. He includes Joan of Arc, Susanna Wesley, Hannah More, Saint Maria of Paris, Corrie ten Boom, Rosa Parks, and Mother Teresa. Metaxas writes in an utterly captivating way and truly brings these women to life on the page. At the start of this book, the only woman I really knew much about was Corrie ten Boom, thanks to reading her book, "The Hiding Place", earlier this year. I had only a small amount of knowledge regarding the other women (including one I had never heard of before). After slowly making my way through the extraordinary stories of these ordinary women, I am blown away by how they allowed themselves to be used by God for great purposes. My personal favorites to read about were Hannah More, Saint Maria of Paris, and Corrie ten Boom. By writing about these women in this book and the men from "7 Men", Metaxas gives us a wonderful gift. In our world gone crazy, we need to learn from these figures who have done amazing and mighty things simply by being available to be used by God for His glory and good purposes.

Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels - Kindle edition by J. Warner Wallace, Lee Strobel. Religion & Spirituality Kindle eBooks @

Christian apologetics is a constantly growing and changing scene and although it's the one career path that will absolutely guarantee that you'll never be rich, but there's definitely no shortage of "C-list/B-list" apologists out there. These folks are usually uneducated "discernment ministry" types running their own basement/blog "ministries" and defending the faith against the attacks of skeptics, academics, heretics and YouTube atheists. But, there are also a few "A-List" folks who have respectable education, write books, teach at Christian Colleges/Seminaries, debate Bart Ehrman or Richard Dawkins (two resume-making debaters for Christian apologists) and put on Alaskan cruises devoted to apologetics and worship via buffet. Of the "A-List" apologists, William Lane Craig is one of the biggest, so it's no surprise that several in his circle, the newest of which is J. Warner Wallace, are climbing onto the "A-List" and getting exposure (and plenty of endorsements from the staff and friends of Biola). All that being said, when I started reading "Cold Case Christianity" by J. Warner Wallace, I already had an idea what to expect: Card-carrying evidentialist apologetics, mainly philosophical defense of Christianity, plenty of party-line towing with regards to the evidentialist apologists (i.

Rapid Response: “You Can’t Be Certain About the Claims of Christianity” | Cold Case Christianity

In our Rapid Response series, we tackle common concerns about (and objections to) the Christian worldview by providing short, conversational responses. These posts are designed to model what our answers might look like in a one-on-one setting, while talking to a friend or family member. Imagine if someone made the following statement: “No one can be absolutely certain about ancient historical claims, and the Bible can’t be proven beyond a possible doubt. The claims of Christianity are dramatic and critical. If you want me to believe these kinds of claims you’d have to be able to prove them beyond any doubt.” How would you respond to such a statement? Here is a conversational example of how I recently replied:

Why Do We Envy the Wicked?

When life seems unfair, or you feel depressed, or you feel like you’re being exploited, where do you turn? Do you turn to work to drown out your feebleness with more effectiveness? Do you turn to the mall to drown out your monotony with new clothes? Do you turn to your phone and social media to drown out your depression with a shot of affirmation? Do you turn to alcohol to numb your struggle? These therapeutic band-aids to our challenges cannot fundamentally heal us. They will only cover the pain for a moment.

22 Disappointing Worship Services

If you often feel Sunday-morning letdown, consider the expectations you have for your church. What do you expect from the environment? Do you expect it to be well-furnished and ornate with well-executed and culturally relevant music? Beware of ways that our consumer mindset pollutes our attitudes at church. The church is more like a dinner in, at home with family, than one out at an expensive restaurant.

Your Wounds Do Not Define You

Each time we choose to see ourselves through the lens of our wounds, we refuse the opportunity to look at ourselves through God’s eyes. No one else has the authority to define who you are. He created you. He says that you are made in his image (Genesis 1:27), redeemed and restored because of Christ (Galatians 4:4–5), co-heirs along with Christ (Romans 8:17), dearly loved (Romans 5:8), and valued beyond measure (Matthew 10:29–31). Whatever your story, the Lord of heaven and earth longs for you to see yourself in that light.

Q & A With Dr. Craig: I Didn't Ask To Be Born

Hello Dr. Craig. First I would like to just express my appreciation for this great ministry. Eight years ago I was born again and filled with the Spirit of God, and I was pre-law which developed into a philosophy major. Philosophy gave me the questions humanity had been asking for thousands of years. I was called into the ministry. From the street to the churches to the jails, this ministry of apologetics has been pertinent to the Great Commission. You have articulated and formulated so much of what I never learned in school and have inspired me to seek out these great truths further. Thank you. My question: on the cosmological argument we contend that an uncaused cause must precede the Big Bang. However the Hartle-Hawking state posits that near the beginning of the universe, white hole, time would slow down to nothing within this singularity. It seems that this would cause a problem for the uncaused cause arguments as beginnings are time oriented entities, and that without time causal relations would be impossible as cause and effect exist in and are essentially concepts of time. How can we posit a cause for the universe if time – which makes cause and effect possible – did not exist initially? Thank you.

Evolution: Seeing Isn't Believing

The researchers observed that as brown anole numbers increased, the green anoles’ average perch height increased. On the other hand, no change in perch height was observed on the control sites. The researchers discovered that on all three test sites the toe pads of the green anoles became larger as perch height increased. The bigger toe pads made it possible for the green anoles to perch higher up in the trees. This adaptation was due to genetic changes in the green anoles, not to developmental plasticity. According to Yoel Stuart, lead author of the study, “We did predict that we’d see a change, but the degree and quickness with which they evolved was surprising.” 2

Contradictions: Can a Thief Go to Heaven?

The thieves crucified with Jesus are a fitting picture of all mankind. They show us the only two possible options for entering eternity: to receive Christ’s free gift of salvation or reject it. So there’s good news! When a thief receives Christ as Lord, he is no longer a thief in the eyes of God; his sin is covered and he is able to enter heaven. Scripture makes that plain and without contradiction.

A Life Without God Is A Life Of Fantasy

There’s a popular secular claim that most of us are aware of and that is the claim that religion is a crutch.  Religion, secularists say, is something that the weak minded use to make sense out of life.  That those who follow a religion are too lazy or self-delusioned to ask the hard questions of life.  They assert the claim that theists are people of a much lower IQ and are simply not educated on the sciences of life.  That due to this lack of intellect, theists just use God to fill in the blank as it pertains to explaining the world around them.  Somehow, the idea of God seems to make theists comfortable and that the promise of some sort of afterlife provides an even greater security.  Those who peddle the claim that religion is a crutch believe that if you disassociate yourself from religion, you remove your crutch in life.  With the crutch removed, you are then free to live in what the secularists might call reality .  This reality is a place where God is not needed.  It is a place where science, no matter how deficient, explains everything or has the possibility of explaining everything.

Atheism is the Burger King of Worldviews

I once read an article about a 1,000-pound man who died in such a way that the walls of his house had to be knocked out and his body removed with a forklift. The obesity isn’t what struck me. Nor was it what was found in his bedroom—fast-food. The room was riddled with McDonald’s and Burger King wrappers among other things like bags of chips and snack food. No. All those things seemed, at least in my mind, to be obvious contributors to the severe obesity. What surprised me was the cause of death—malnutrition.

You can’t control your husband or your kids or your wife or your job or your future or your past or any of that stuff. The more you do it, the more you’re trying to play God, and that puts you in opposition to God. Not only are you going to lose that conflict, but you’re also going to be tired.

Teacher fired for stating pro-life views that “triggered” pro-abortion student

I really hope that this story of the pro-life student and the fired teacher will help you to learn to predict the rage you will be subject to should you ever disagree with secular leftists in the slightest way. For your own safety, you need to assume that teachers and administrators are immoral psychopaths, even if not all of them are. And this is especially true of public schools. Never state your views where secular leftists can overhear. And understand that this is going to keep going – the next generation is going to be even less sane and less moral, not to mention less employable. It is going to keep going until government money that subsidizes (and normalizes) reckless immoral liberal lifestyles runs out.

Did the Gospel Writers Intend to Write Accurate History?

Most people– unless they have been educated out of it –still believe that you can know some things about the past. In other words, we can discover important historical truths about people like Plato, Alexander the Great, and Julius Caesar (and I would argue Jesus of Nazareth…but that’s another post).

Can Christians Benefit from Books by Nonbelievers?

Okay, Jonathan, here is my most recent thinking about why a measured use of wide reading, including non-Christian authors, is a wise thing. I call it the reality factor. When I am reading the Bible, there are dozens and dozens of experiences and concepts and words that I can fly right over without pausing to contemplate the reality behind the words and the experiences and the concepts. And that is what I mean by the reality factor. We need to stop, bring in the reality factor, and go deeper behind.

The Apostle Paul's letters; From Man or God?

In my last post we asked the question, “Were the authors of the New Testament (NT) aware that they were writing with divine authority?” The liberal will say “NO”. They contend that the authors of the NT were writing occasional documents. These letters were never intended to have universal application much less carry divine authority. In fact, so they say, it was the later church that imposed upon these letters authority.
