Practical Atheism 03/26/17

As believers, we live with our eyes upon the eternal, but we still have to function now in a world that is wicked at its core. So, how should we respond to the injustices we observe and battle with every day? This week on The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice will encourage us to intercede now, plead with God for justice continually, and then rest in the fact that judgement is surely coming.

Psalm 10

Praise the Lord! 03/19/17

If our worship comes with a set of stipulations for God, then the reality is that it’s not true worship. In fact, total surrender is one of the distinguishing characteristics of the Christian life. This week on The Bible Study Hour, Dr. Boice will remind us that embracing the truth of the Gospel fills us with joy in our salvation. Heartfelt praise is simply the natural overflow of a restored life!

Our God, Our Glory 03/12/17

This week on The Bible Study Hour with Dr. Boice, we’ll take a look at Psalm chapter 8 to answer the ultimate question: What is our destiny?

Cry Justice! 03/05/17

This coming week on The Bible Study Hour, we’ll continue our series through Psalms with a message entitled, “Cry Justice!” As believers, we’re called to stand for what is right, integral, honest and fair.

Formality was never a requirement that God imposed on our prayer time. But he does command us to seek Him earnestly and with persistence. If you’ve ever wondered if there is a right or wrong way to pray, you won’t want to miss this week’s broadcast of The Bible Study Hour with Dr. Boice. We’ll learn that we must always approach God on the basis of his sacrifice - and not our own merit.

Psalm 2

The Fast Lane or the Right Path 01/22/17
