Coptic Martyr

The Coptic Martyr of Cairo

The latest international thriller from best-selling author Martin Roth

Four Americans in Egypt on an archaeological dig. In the blistering summer heat they are fighting amongst themselves. Then they unearth a body. It is an old priest who has been murdered.

The gruesome discovery sets in train a sequence of events that leads to a deadly Islamist attack on the ancient church where the Americans are working.

The leader of the expedition, Professor Rafa Harel, must decide whether to withdraw his fractious team or continue on a mission to unveil a controversial series of wall paintings, knowing that these images have the power to spark even greater violence.

Online Bible Schools

I love study. I love the Bible. And I love to study the Bible. Recently I surfed the internet for online Bible schools. Here is what I found.

Frankly speaking, there is an explosion of resources available. Numerous theological colleges have turned themselves into online Bible schools, offering all kinds of programs. Some look extremely impressive.

For example, the Fuller Theological Seminary has launched Fuller Online, offering “a high-quality, accredited theological and missional education using the powerful, flexible channel of the internet.”

The Dallas Theological Seminary says about its online Bible study courses:

DTS's online courses have the same content, credit and cost as classes taken in the traditional classroom format. This means that students taking online courses will receive the same instruction from world-class faculty, challenging assignments, and strong community experience present in the classroom.

There are many others.

Some churches provide online Bible schools. For example, check out Jordan Park Church of Christ in Alabama. It says that 25,000 students are enrolled in its internet Bible study course.

And then there are many, many para-church organizations, as well as dedicated websites, offering online Bible schools or study resources.

As an example, Bible.org has some impressive resources available free, including Easton’s Bible Dictionary and the International Standard Bible Dictionary. Also available is The Theology Program, a self-study course aimed at “equipping people and churches to understand and defend the Christian faith.”
