Enter God’s Story of Faithfulness to His People
The Christian faith extends beyond our personal experiences, our individual churches, and far beyond our present age. This, for the Christian, is great news. When we become acquainted with the legacy of our Christian heritage, we connect our stories to those of the faithful believers who have come before us.
This connection is precisely what Nathan Busenitz, Dean of
Faculty and professor of church history at The Master's Seminary,
