    by Bob Smietana, posted Wednesday, December 06, 2017 (5 days ago)

    But they're not always sure what they believe.

    Fewer than half of those who identify as evangelicals (45 percent) strongly agree with core evangelical beliefs, according to a survey by LifeWay Research released Dec. 5. Read More

    NASHVILLE (BP) -- Older American evangelicals love Israel, but many younger evangelicals simply don't care, according to a new survey from Nashville-based LifeWay Research.

    Four in 10 younger evangelicals (41 percent) have no strong views about Israel. Read More

  • Spurgeon Study Bible called first of its kind

    by Joy Allmond, posted Friday, December 01, 2017 (10 days ago)

    NASHVILLE (BP) -- "The Spurgeon Study Bible," which features sermon outlines and notes from revered 19th-century theologian, preacher and writer Charles Spurgeon, is considered the first of its kind.

    Readers will glean relevant truths from Spurgeon's notes, even though they were penned long ago, said Alistair Begg, general editor of the project. Begg is senior pastor of Parkside Church in Cleveland, Ohio, and head of Bible-teaching ministry Truth for Life. LifeWay Christian Resources' Holman Bibles released the special study Bible.

    NASHVILLE (BP) -- Facing breast cancer and the breakdown of her marriage, Proverbs 31 Ministries founder Lysa TerKeurst stood before 1,800 women Nov. 9 and urged them to remain steadfast in Christ.

    There was a collective gasp from the audience at LifeWay's annual Women's Leadership Forum as TerKeurst shared she would undergo a double mastectomy the following day.

    TerKeurst's breast cancer diagnosis in October came on the heels of her June announcement that she and her husband of 25 years were separating due to his substance abuse and infidelity. She told the gathered leaders that having a cancer diagnosis and a marriage crisis happen so closely together was difficult, but that the Word of God was anchoring her -- and it could anchor them, too.

  • Survey: Billy Graham continues far-reaching legacy

    by Bob Smietana, posted Thursday, November 09, 2017 (one month ago)

    NASHVILLE (BP) -- In the fall of 1949, a little-known Baptist preacher launched a series of revival meetings at a "canvas cathedral" in Los Angeles at the corner of Washington Boulevard and Hill Street.

    The meetings were supposed to last three weeks. Instead they continued for eight weeks, drawing more than 300,000 people and making Billy Graham a household name.

    Nearly 70 years later, the 99-year-old Graham remains one of the best-known preachers in America, according to a survey by Nashville-based LifeWay Research. Read More
