Did the ancient Egyptians leave an account of the Red Sea (Yam Suf) crossing? Most people who have studied this would respond, “But the ancient Egyptians never monumentalized their defeats.” Yes, and today no one is expecting to find an ancient Egyptian inscription that says, “The God of the Hebrew slaves beat us up.” However, there is an Egyptian legend (not the el-Arish Shrine) that does more than just lend itself to the sea crossing by Israel. It is about a battle between two Egyptian “gods,” and in this battle, the “good god,” who represents Egypt loses (something very rare), and the “bad god,” who represents the foreigners wins, and it takes place at the bottom of the sea! And what is of more interest is that this takes place right in front of the four place names of the Red Sea/Yam Suf crossing, as given in Exodus 14:2! (Pi-hahiroth, Migdol, Baal-zephon, and “the sea.”) But because this Egyptian legend was said to have happened in an unexpected location, it has been passed over.

The heartache of grief and loss can crash against our Christian faith like tidal waves. Well-meaning people who toss out a religious nugget of wisdom hoping to bring quick relief often worsen the emotional pain of trauma and tragedy.
In How Could a Loving God, Christian apologist Ken Ham offers sound biblical counsel and answers to some of life’s greatest questions:
Why does God allow my suffering?
How do I move beyond this anger at God?
Why didn’t God prevent this from happening?
This is a comprehensive, personal, and biblically sound account of one family’s struggle with suffering in a fallen world. With sensitivity to the person whose perception of God has been calloused by tragedy, Ken Ham makes clear the hope-giving answers found in the pages of Scripture.
How Could a Loving God is an excellent resource for Biblical counselors, pastors, teachers and laymen. Use it in Bible classes and have it on hand as a reference when you or someone you love is faced with shocking news and great grief.
churchfails is a collection of 100 articles describing people who claim to be Christians doing foolish things. Each article will include a picture of the subject.
From the Introduction: “Groucho Marx once said, “I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.” If Christianity is a club, it has featured innumerable inglorious members. As abashed affiliates of said club, what can we do? We can try to deny our past and present peccadilloes, but covering up a crime is like poking a polecat—it’s worse in the end. So, we can rant and rave, or we can laugh and learn. This book settles on the second strategy.”
Sparkling Regency Romance from a Captivating New Voice
Lady Miranda Hawthorne acts every inch the lady, but inside she longs to be bold and carefree. Entering her fourth Season and approaching spinsterhood in the eyes of society, she pours her innermost feelings out not in a diary but in letters to her brother’s old school friend, a duke–with no intention of ever sending these private thoughts to a man she’s heard stories about but never met. Meanwhile, she also finds herself intrigued by Marlow, her brother’s new valet, and although she may wish to break free of the strictures that bind her, falling in love with a servant is more of a rebellion than she planned.
When Marlow accidentally discovers and mails one of the letters to her unwitting confidant, Miranda is beyond mortified. And even more shocked when the duke returns her note with one of his own that initiates a courtship-by-mail. Insecurity about her lack of suitors shifts into confusion at her growing feelings for two men–one she’s never met but whose words deeply resonate with her heart, and one she has come to depend on but whose behavior is more and more suspicious. When it becomes apparent state secrets are at risk and Marlow is right in the thick of the conflict, one thing is certain: Miranda’s heart is far from all that’s at risk for the Hawthornes and those they love.

May it come in our time!
