Fort Caswell's rich history 

This week’s print edition of the Biblical Recorder is filled with news that will challenge and inform your spiritual walk. Not everything in the print edition is available on BRnow.org, but the full edition is available when you subscribe to the digital edition. It is economically priced and available on your smart phone, tablet or computer no matter where you are.

Michael McEwen, the BR content editor, wrote an interesting story on Fort Caswell’s rich history and its long-term impact on people of all ages. N.C. Baptists are blessed to have this property, the staff and the many outstanding events held on these grounds throughout the year. Be sure to read this story.

Two professors from Southeastern Seminary have contributed columns this week. Chuck Lawless discusses why we don’t cry out for spiritual awakening. This is one of many articles we are featuring throughout the year to support Ronnie Floyd’s call for real revival in the Southern Baptist Convention.

Alvin Reid offers a historical perspective that supports our involvement in Africa’s Ebola crisis. He shares a view that counters the unbiblical perspectives of Ann Coulter, Donald Trump and others who have criticized the medical workers who returned to the states.

My editorial points out the tactics extremists use to force their views on others. One of the strongest bully groups at work today is the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Before the ink was dry on this week’s printed edition, another story reported they have forced the military to remove Gideon Bibles from military accommodations.

Don't miss Roman Gabriel III's feature about Chip Smith, a very influential NFL trainer.
