At the time, Brant was among the few Christians who were aggressively pioneering the podcast side of the web and he freely gave of his services to help us podcast our conference.

Five Things About the iPhone

By John Mark Reynolds I have longed for it, wanted it from afar, and envied my friends who owned it. I can only thank God that the Bible forbids coveting my neighbor’s ox and not his iPhone or I would have been in big trouble. Fortunately the strength of this particular exegesis was not long put...
