"TBC - A Full Service Ministry?"
One criticism we receive every so often is that we are too critical. Those critical of our being too critical suggest that we diversify from our negativity by becoming more positive. It is suggested that this can be accomplished through articles that are devotional or instructional, or at least more spiritually uplifting. We know if Dave had his druthers most of his writing would focus on the devotional. But that is not the arena to which the Lord has called him. His calling is to encourage biblical discernment among believers in Jesus Christ. And we here at TBC believe we are called to help him to do that very thing.
At the same time Dave and we know the value of devotional, instructional, and spiritually uplifting resource materials for the readership of The Berean Call. That's why we have added materials from others whom God has wonderfully enabled to write on various edifying topics. If you are of the mind that we are a little too narrow minded, check out our extensive catalog of diverse books, CDs, DVDs, etc. Although we are hardly going "full service," we believe we do have a lot more to offer than some people realize.
In fact, we're pleased to announce to all of our long-time friends and new readers, that TBC's first full-color, 64-page resource catalog will be available beginning this month. A complimentary copy will be included with every resource order from this issue and can also be requested free of charge.
Our hope and prayer is that you will discover many edifying books, CDs, DVDs, and other materials that both exhort and encourage a closer walk with Christ. From hard-to-find classics to informative volumes on current issues, these resources are carefully selected by our staff for the purpose of evangelism, discipleship, devotions-and yes, biblical discernment-in these turbulent times.
