Alan's monthly letter for June 2014 “The days of comfortable and acceptable Christianity are now over,” said Robert George. “America no longer favors faithful Christians...who are pro-life and pro-traditional marriage. Because of that, Christians must be willing to bear the consequences of standing up for the teachings of Jesus and His bride, the Church.” George is Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University and a leading Christian voice. He spoke these sobering words last month at a prayer breakfast in Washington D.C.
Alan explains what it means to have good character when engaging in conversations regarding ethics, faith, and values.
Alan's monthly letter for April 2014 We have only one lifetime to make a difference for eternity. It’s not always easy to measure our impact, but sometimes we get a peek. My friends in British Columbia, Canada had longed to invite me to their church. Believers in their country face many challenges to their Christian convictions, and they were concerned about the apathy they encountered when trying to get people more active defending their faith.
The SLED Test is a simple argument against abortion. The pro-life view is that the unborn are human beings just like you and me. That’s why it’s wrong to kill them.

Often they use personhood language to express this view. They say the unborn might be human, but it’s not a person.
Alan's monthly letter for September 2013 Dear Friend, “How do you stay positive when change seems impossible?” My wife’s question caught me off guard.

Although my training and overall trip went great, I shared with her a story that troubled me.
Alan's monthly letter for December 2011 Dear Friend, Wow! That word captures how I feel about our partnership in 2011. I’m amazed at what we accomplished together. Thanks to you, our impact training believers surpassed previous years. I can’t thank you enough. I am grateful and humbled by your faithful giving towards my work with Stand to Reason (STR).
Alan's monthly letter for September 2011 Dear Friend, After 20 hours of flying, four hours of layovers, and one and a half hours of driving (while passing a few Hezbollah operatives on the street), I finally arrived at the Le Frères Monastery in Beit-Méry, Lebanon. Perched on a 2,000-foot-high mountain, the Catholic convent has breathtaking views of the mountains, valleys, and of downtown Beirut.
