The Vanishing Pro-Life Apologist

There's a growing taboo infecting crisis pregnancy centers around the country. Pro-lifers are getting tight-lipped on abortion. Here's why even CPC's are shying away from speaking frankly about the moral crime of the century. The last few years have witnessed a stunning development in the pro-life movement.

Following the Evidence

Can the argument really be made that the Christian view is less biased than your average scientist's or historian's?

Miracles or Myths

Does it really matter whether the biblical miracles actually happened? If you say it doesn't, you lose something very important. Can we still believe in miracles? That's the question asked in an article in Time magazine, from April 10, 1995. I was very happy when I read this article because it finally gives a balanced treatment. They interviewed people from a number of different perspectives that not only gave their point of view, particularly the conservative point of view, but gave their reasons.
