In the last 24 hours I have an opportunity to revist the sermon I preached on the Sunday after 9/11. At that point America was still struggling with the enormity of what happened just five days earlier. In that sermon, called Living by Faith in an Uncertain World, I wrapped up by giving Five Lessons to Ponder.I share them here because ten years lat...

Two weeks ago we started a campaign to raise $70,000 to print 100,000 copies of An Anchor for the Soul that we will donate to evangelistic ministries in the US. In the last 15 years we have given away over 700,000 copies of this little “gospel book.” Our largest partnership has been with Prison Fellowship […]
Will you help us donate 100,000 copies of An Anchor for the Soul? In the last 15 years we’ve given away over 700,000 copies of this little “gospel book.” Joni Eareckson Tada said this about the first edition of An Anchor for the Soul: “This book cuts through any confusion and showcases what the Gospel […]
It’s hard to believe that 15 years have passed since Moody published the first edition of An Anchor for the Soul. I remember being thrilled when the book sold around 60,000 copies in the first year. But God had bigger plans. Fast forward to 2015. There are now 823,000 copies in print. That’s a stupendous […]
Dear Praying Friends, Yesterday we received a letter from a prisoner in West Virginia who told us a wonderful story. He had received a copy of An Anchor for the Soul as a reward for completing “Great Truths of the Bible,” a 52-lesson course from Crossroad Bible Institute.First he read the book on his own. […]
Dear Praying Friends, Will you “walk across the room”? Recently we met some friends who told us that during a Sunday School class, they were challenged to “walk across the room,” which meant taking a chance to share Jesus with others. Here’s what happened next: Shortly afterwards, my husband looked out the window of our […]

Not long ago we received the following email:
Frankenstorm Sandy is attacking the Northeast with a fury! Are you or someone you know conducting ministry to help victims?
A friend wrote me saying that he had been asked to give a course on evangelism and wanted any ideas I might have. Here is what I wrote back to him:Focus on the gospel, not on technique. Too many evangelism courses focus on saying specific sentences and on how to “close the deal.” I think that matters but it’s not the main thing. M...
A few months ago I wrote to a friend not long before her father died. Over the years she had shared her faith with him, but she had no assurance that he knew the Lord. Her dilemma raised an important question. What should we say when a loved one dies and we are not sure about their ultimate destination? Here is an edited version of what I wrot...
Here’s a story that illustrates the truth that we “should always pray and not give up” (Luke 18:1). Several years ago a woman asked me to pray that her aged mother would come to Christ. We prayed together and went our separate ways. I hadn’t thought about that prayer until I received an email yesterday:Hi Ray,A few years ago...
