While we cannot say that we give a blanket endorsement of every single word each of these authors have written, we do agree with their overall message and believe them to be credible and reliable sources of information, lining up with the Word of God. As always, be a good Berean for yourself, and line up the words of mankind with the Word of God found in Scripture.

Acts 17:11-12

“Now the Bereans were more noble-minded than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if these teachings were true. As a result, many of them believed, along with quite a few prominent Greek women and men.” (BSB)
