Anne Peterson discusses her life and work as a Christian poet.
“Anne Peterson is an extraordinarily gifted speaker who captivates our minds with her life experiences and touches our hearts with her remarkable poetry. By using personal events, she leads her audience through an exploration of life’s tragic and comic moments. The journey is sometimes intense, sometimes gentle, but always heartfelt. It is an emotional experience few people can create.”  -Esther DiMarzio, Kishwaukee College Instructor
“Anne Peterson is an engaging speaker who has the ability to make you laugh or cry. Just when you are entertained by her amusing stories, she shares a profound truth that challenges and encourages. Because she has faced a lot of life’s difficulties, almost anyone will be able to identify and be uplifted by the way she has faced tragedy. She is able to appeal to people of all ages and walks of life. Few inspirational speakers are so practical. You’ll love her!”  -JoHannah Reardon, Editor of Christian Bible Studies, Christianity Today International

Retired philosophy professor, Dr. Hendrik van der Breggen, presents important evidences and philosophical arguments related to the major truths of Christianity.
“This collection of newspaper columns by Hendrik van der Breggen is unlike most other books you will read. ... These columns include intriguing questions, interactive dialogues, and even humorous anecdotes as issue after issue is concisely dissected and explained. In the process, readers will encounter a fresh and well-reasoned defence of the central teachings Christians have always believed along with a number of the philosophical foundations upon which they rest.” -Paul Chamberlain, PhD, Professor of Ethics and Leadership, Director of Institute for Christian Apologetics, Trinity Western University“Like [C. S.] Lewis, Hendrik has a gift for making philosophical arguments accessible, without sacrificing rigor. Those new to exploring the credentials of Christianity cannot do better than this book and those of us familiar with Christian apologetics will appreciate the wealth of suggestions provided for further study. This is a book that deserves a wide readership both within and outside Christian faith.” -Robert Larmer, PhD, Professor of Philosophy, Philosophy Department Chair, University of New Brunswick“Dr. van der Breggen is the rare scholar who strives to express complex ideas simply, and to lead readers to reflect on often unintended, and always unhappy, but logically inevitable conclusions of popular positions in religious and moral debate today. This is an accessible, broad, and lively book. It deserves a readership as large as it is!” -Rev’d Tim Perry, PhD, Professor of Theology, Providence Theological Seminary"With highly relevant, poignant stories, fastidious attention to detail, and copious (yet not overwhelming) references, including immeasurably helpful ‘for further study’ sections at the end of each chapter, van der Breggen effectively engages (with enviable wisdom and transparent conviction) the most important evidences and philosophical arguments related to the major truths of Christianity. APOLOGIA: The Columns provides expert guidance for both the uninitiated and seasoned individuals alike concerning critical thinking, logical principles of discourse, and so-called ‘mere Christianity.’ Would that every author provided as sure footing as Hendrik van der Breggen does in this text!” -Dustin Burlet, PhD, Instructor of Bible, Millar College of the Bible“For anyone looking for a comprehensive, yet easy-to-read defence of the Christian faith, I highly recommend this book. Dr. Hendrik van der Breggen has helpfully compiled some of his best newspaper columns from over the years and he also added supporting references and explanatory notes. The end product is a book that is weighty in substance, sharp in argumentation, and winsome in tone. This book is a model of what Christian apologetics should look like.” -Michael Zwaagstra, MEd, MA, high school teacher, author, Steinbach city councillor“This book is the distillation of decades of careful Christian thinking on a wide range of important topics, from skepticism to tolerance to ethics. Dr. van der Breggen models the passion for truth and posture of humble confidence he recommends to his readers. No question or line of argument is off-limits. Whatever their views, readers will find themselves challenged to think, and think again.” -Kevin N. Flatt, PhD, Professor of History, Associate Dean of Humanities, Redeemer University

“...I am someone with a phD in the area of educational history in Canada, so I knew that most residential school children who died did so—tragically—from disease, like many non-indigenous children a century ago..."
"...Well, a student got upset and went down and talked to a guidance counselor. The guidance counselor mentioned something to somebody in the office, who talked to the principal, who talked to somebody in the school district. That circulated around, I presume, for a little while—but not for too long because within half an hour of my saying disease, and not murder, I was walked out of the classroom—and my career. And I haven’t taught since...”

"My name is Mari-Anna (Frangén) Stålnacke and I am a writer/speaker/teacher. I hold a Doctor of Theology degree in Religious Education from the University of Helsinki. I have taught at the university level in the United States (Concordia College, Moorhead, MN) and Finland (the University of Helsinki and the University of Jyväskylä). Currently, I am teaching theology (as a FELM missionary) at Mekane Yesus Seminary in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia. I am open to going anywhere God is leading. I write about things related to Christian spirituality, Christian living, spiritual formation, growing in faith, or what it is to be a follower of Christ in today’s world. I aim to encourage my fellow pilgrims on their journey of faith. If you are or want to be a follower of Christ, this blog is for you. Flowing Faith is a blog for talking of God so that everyone might know the love of God, receive the grace of Christ, and live in the presence of the Holy Spirit."

"In Defenders of the West, the author of Sword and Scimitar follows up with vivid and dramatic profiles of eight extraordinary warriors—some saints, some sinners—who defended the Christian West against Islamic invasions. Discover the real Count Dracula, Spain’s El Cid, England’s Richard Lionheart, and many other historical figures, whose true and original claim to fame revolved around their defiant stance against jihadist aggression. With sixteen full color pages of photos and illustrations, Defenders of the West is an instructive and inspiring read. Whereas Sword and Scimitar revolved around decisive battles, Defenders of the West revolves around decisive men."
"Raymond Ibrahim, an expert in Islamic history and doctrine, is the author of Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West (2018); Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians (2013); and The Al Qaeda Reader (2007). He has appeared on C-SPAN, Al-Jazeera, CNN, NPR, and PBS, and been published by the New York Times Syndicate, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Financial Times, Weekly Standard, Chronicle of Higher Education, and Jane’s Islamic Affairs Analyst. Formerly an Arabic linguist at the Library of Congress, Ibrahim has guest lectured at many universities, including the U.S. Army War College, briefed governmental agencies such as U.S. Strategic Command, and testified before Congress. He has been a visiting fellow/scholar at a variety of Institutes—from the Hoover Institution to the National Intelligence University—and is currently a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, a Judith Friedman Rosen Fellow at the Middle East Forum, and a Senior Fellow at the Gatestone Institute."
