How could our world be different if Christians were recognized for not only speaking the truth, but also demonstrating mercy?
For more than 25 years, Marvin Olasky has offered this kind of viewpoint in his columns as the Editor-in-Chief of World Magazine, the leading news magazine written with a Christian perspective. In this collection of far-ranging columns, Olasky’s commentary on world events and affairs, as well as his own personal interactions, encourages readers to respond with both grace and truth in every encounter.
A leading voice for standing for biblical truth in the public square, Olasky also believes Christians should incorporate the biblical virtues of humility, kindness, and mercy in all of life. His call for biblical values to include both truth and mercy makes his voice stand out in a world that often falsely divides those goals and settles for a poor imitation of the robust Christianity described in Scripture. These short and punchy columns offer readers a new way to consider challenges in today’s world and shows them how to respond to any encounter biblically, but not hysterically, providing a wake-up call for the complacent, while also calming the frantic.
Marvin Olasky is editor-in-chief of “World News Group,” a distinguished chair in journalism and public policy at Patrick Henry College, and the author of more than twenty books, including “Compassionate Conservatism” and “The Tragedy of American Compassion.” He and his wife, Susan, have four sons and five grandchildren.
This book is an excellent tool for parents of teens. The chapters are all great launching points for family discussions. While the book can be “deep,” it is well-written and thoroughly covers a wide range of topics. My 16 year old thought it was easy to read and that it gave her a lot to think about. I love that this challenges young people to find what they truly believe, rather than blindly following parents or the world.
There is a battle going on for the hearts and minds of our young people. As parents, it is our job to not only encourage and pray for them but also to put tools in their hands that will guide them towards the love and peace of the Lord. Adored: 365 Devotions for Young Women is the perfect tool for young women. Read a little more about this book and find out how to win a copy!
I could never homeschool my kids, they drive me crazy!
We’ve all heard it, right? And while we all want to staunchly disagree with such a statement… there are days that we would have to agree. So how do we ensure that the good days outnumber the days that we are searching the roads for a big yellow bus to flag down?
We learn to enjoy homeschooling our children, especially our teens.
It’s so important that mothers show their children that God’s Word is important. So how do we, as mothers, fit that into our days? Find tools that make studying and reading God’s Word accessible, enjoyable, and rejuvenating.
Yes, God’s Word is all of those things on it’s own. But when it’s so easy to access the Bible on our phones, it’s important to use our time in God’s Word to pause and focus. And it’s been proven that one of the most effective ways to relieve stress is to color or draw. So which Bible makes all of this easy for busy moms? The ESV Illuminated Bible.
