Creation ministry in India

Earlier this year I visited India and was deeply impressed with that vast nation of a billion people. It is a country of immense contrasts - poverty and yet industriousness; good communications and yet chaos in the cities; the tranquillity of the Ganges and yet the incessant noise of traffic. We asked one of…

Liberalism in Evangelical Garb

My purpose is writing is to warn readers of books which appear to be evangelical but are not. Such is the latest work by David Wilkinson entitled The message of Creation (IVP, 2002, ISBN 0-8308-2405-7).

Missionary Spotlight

Recently it was a privilege to spend a few days with Zdenìk and Nicola Karásek in Liberec, teaching God’s Word in relation to creation. Liberec is close to the old East German and Polish borders in the Bohemian Mountains. It was here that the Nazis walked into Sudetenland, after the 1938 Munich agreement with…

Missionary Spotlight – Nigeria revisited

Nigeria is a country of contrasts. It is vibrant with life and activity, and yet shows enormous differences in lifestyle.   In the cities begging and corruption exist alongside splendid buildings (usually mosques). Many are being reached, but there are still whole tribes who have not heard the gospel of Christ. People flock to…
