Focus on the Fathers


The biblical image of God as Father sets the standard for a guiding figure who is gracious, loving, and wants the best for his children. The Christian faith holds the figures of the Early Church in high esteem with the special designation, “Church Fathers.” For centuries, Christians have looked to the wisdom of the Church Fathers for insights into understanding the Scriptures and guidance for themselves and their families. This week, in recognition of the best that fathers have to give to this world, we are highlighting the Early Church writings of the Church Fathers with special sale pricing.

Keener Miracles cover 3D New Release!
Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts

Respected New Testament scholar Craig Keener argues that it is time to rethink philosopher David Hume's argument against miracles in light of the contemporary evidence available to us. This two-volume study presents the most thorough current defense of the credibility of the miracle reports in the Gospels and Acts. Drawing on claims from a range of global cultures and taking a multidisciplinary approach to the topic, Keener suggests that many miracle accounts throughout history and from contemporary times are best explained as genuine divine acts, lending credence to the biblical miracle reports.
