Stealing the Story

Aaron Baart

Whether watching Superman or reading Harry Potter, every story is a reflection, a derivative, of the one true story. The fingerprint of God is so embedded in each of us that whether we know the name of Jesus or not, his story is the source of our being.

Joining the Light Shining in the Dark

Secular Prophets

Aaron Baart

From Metallica to Lady Gaga, in music and throughout popular culture, different voices make strong calls back to Biblical faithfulness, even if they don’t count the Bible as authoritative or Jesus as Lord. What is being said through these voices and is it God saying it?

Aaron Baart
