Franklin Graham builds hospital for Mosul, called 'Islamophobe' by CAIR

Building an emergency hospital in Iraq, a nation that is over 95% Muslim, does not seem to be the definition of an "Islamophobe" -- even if the builder is also a proselytizer for the Christian faith (in obedience to the "Christ" of the Christian faith). Published January 13, 2017

Conservative Christians: Church, Bible, parents are dominant influences

The top three personal influences cited by SAGE Cons [Conservative Christians] are the Bible (estimated to have "a lot of influence" on their decisions and perspectives by 98%), religious teaching (92%), and the values taught to them by their parents (77%). Published January 10, 2017

Q&A with Doug Stringer about 'Leadership Awakening'

Books on leadership often seem written by authors who gave little effort, simply regurgitating bland truisms and pithy quotes. Stringer gives plenty of principles, truisms, and potent quotes from leaders past and present. But this isn't a boilerplate book on leadership. Stringer invested himself in the writing and it shows. Pick up a copy and chew on it slowly; don't speed-read this one. Published January 6, 2017

The atheist who became a Christian, and then a pastor's wife, too

This story from Baptist Press would have been a great gospel-driven tale even if the last words were "she became a Christian." But the added fun twist of her getting married to a man who would go onto become a pastor--priceless. What a turnaround. Published January 4, 2017

Q&A with Newt Gingrich about the faith component of his latest two novels

Gingrich writes, "A major purpose of writing Duplicity and Treason was to let readers know how deeply different our enemies among the Islamic Supremacists are from the rest of us. We want people to understand that the motivations and the reasoning of our enemies are deeply felt beliefs and are very powerful. All too many of our secular analysts and reporters cannot grasp the power of religion in motivating and guiding people." Published January 3, 2017

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin's first year

Loftus writes: "All sides agree Bevin has been different. He's a governor who invokes the Judeo-Christian principles this nation was built on" to any crowd. He grows ever more zealous before evangelical audiences, such as in September when he urged ministers gathered at the Governor's Mansion to be bold and not fear federal retaliation for preaching about politics."

Can a political party win three consecutive terms in the White House?

I'm sure that Donald Trump and the people who will serve in his administration have high goals for how to "Make America Great Again" -- that phrase borrowed from Reagan's 1980 campaign. The rarest achievement of all, however, might be for Mr. Trump to serve the American people so splendidly that even after eight years in office, voters say, "We'll take some more of that."
