Pastor Jay’s wife, Christina, and another one of our members, Rachel, interviewed Aimee Byrd on her book “Housewife Theologian”:
Housewife Theologian: How the Gospel Interrupts the Ordinary

In part one of the interview they get into topics such as:
What got you to writing a book?
Are women to “study to show [themselves] approved”?
What is true beauty?
What is modesty & chastity?
How do you help women to read theology? Or even just read?

What of feminism?
How is submissiveness active?
How has Spurgeon influenced you?
What of culture?

The End Times Made Simple:
How Could Everybody Be So Wrong about Biblical Prophecy
by Samuel E. Waldron
Seeing as how Pastor Jay is currently doing a
Sunday School series on Apologetics to the Glory of God and how we use Dr. Bahnsen’s work in it, I thought it would be useful to share these introductory lectures on presuppositional apologetics.
The following lectures Dr. Bahnsen gave at a high school to prepare Christians to defend their faith in college standing on the authority of God’s word:
Lesson 1 The Myth of Neutrality
Lesson 2 Introduction to Worldviews
Lesson 3 Worldviews in Conflict
Lesson 4 Defending the Christian Faith
Lesson 5 Problems for Unbelieving Worldviews
