Read the first chapter of Free to Believe.

A leading religious freedom attorney and veteran of several Supreme Court battles helps people of faith understand religious liberty in our rapidly changing culture—why it matters, how it is threatened, and how to respond with confidence and grace. 

Many Christians and others are concerned about rising threats to religious freedom.

Between the years of 1869 to 1939 more than 100,000 poor British children were sent across the ocean to Canada with the promise of a better life. Those who took them in to work as farm laborers or household servants were told they were orphans—but was that the truth?

How Should Parents Respond When They Find Out Their Child Is Gay?

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

I often meet many Christian parents who tell me stories of their kids, who grew up in the church and they taught them the Gospel.

These are really heartbreaking stories. Parents want to know…how do we respond well? I think ultimately, we need to recognize that sexuality is never really the main issue.
