The pastor of a large charismatic church in England and the father of children with debilitating diseases speaks about healing that is no mere theory. William De Arteaga writes: “A good article for a home group or Bible study to tackle the issue of healing.”
Peter Berger, “Is Atheism a Specifically Western Phenomenon?” The American Interest (November 26, 2014).
The lead-in to the article reads: “We know atheism in its Jewish or Christian context, as a rejection of the Biblical God. What would atheism mean in a Muslim, or Hindu, or Buddhist context?” William De Arteaga writes: “This is a very useful article in understanding atheism. It is by an ex-Catholic and centers of the classical problem of evil vs. a good God. Note that the author never experienced healing nor the gifts of the Spirit in his years as a Catholic. I believe demonstrating the power of the gospel is the key to evangelizing atheists.”

Eddie Kaufholz interviews Rachel Held Evans about her new book, Searching for Sunday: Loving, Leaving and Finding the Church. PneumaReview.com writer Monte Lee Rice selected this quote: “I think when you look at the people who Jesus surrounded Himself with, that’s what our churches are supposed to look like. They’re supposed to be filled with super uncool people. Folks from the margins of society, and folks who are misfits and oddballs and sick and hungry and homeless, outcasts, the people who are typically despised by the religious.”
