Here are my top 10 Christian resources for weekly reading. They are the kind of sites to sink your teeth into and really get to know.

This blog is called If We Will Live. The tone is one of optimism and sincerity—for if we will live, we must choose to identify the path.

Since my purpose involves changing and teaching the reader, I plan to write on challenging and controversial topics. Guaranteed, my ideas will lead to disagreements.
