What Is Worship Music? by Paul S. Jones

Too much of the debate surrounding different worship styles center on personal music preferences.

What is Vocation? by Stephen J. Nichols

Why do musicians and other artists, have such a negative view of work? The Reformers had a lot to say about it and yet although they have greatly influenced the world (ever heard of the Protestant Work Ethic?) they had a better balanced view of it than we hold today.

What is Hell? by Peterson, Robert A. and Morgan, Christopher W.

They address the major questions people have about this subject and apply what the Bible has to say about it to Christian living.
