Why does God care who I sleep with? Review

Sam Allberry has written a short book explaining the meaning of God’s boundaries for sexual morality. In a culture increasingly at odds with the Bible’s teaching on this subject, we need more than just to know what the Bible’s rules are. Rather, we need to be aligned with God’s heart on this matter.

They’re all going on a Summer holiday, but am I?

At first glance, the Bible seems to say very little about going on holiday. But the word ‘holiday’ comes from the joining of two words: “holy” and “day”.
