You can read remarks by Olan Hicks about "the law of silence" on this web site. The "law" of silence is an invention of men who suppose that God speaks best by what He chooses to NOT say. and -- You can read very interesting teachings about the book of Revelation in the Bible from Olan's nephew, Russ Hicks, with an accompanying study by Evangelist Olan Hicks on the A.D.70 theory that all the prophecies about Christ's return to the earth were fulfilled when Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 A.D. Speaking about Jerusalem, for an interesting new idea about the "New Jerusalem," see this thought presented by evangelist Ralph Woodrow). Olan has studied and written considerable about the divorce and remarriage problem also, as has another brother, Al Maxey.
John Clayton ("Does God Exist?")teachs about Christian evidences in nature, and John recommends the similar work of Hill Roberts of Alabama.

And for more studies and sermon seeds see the site of Bill Denton (Newton, Kansas Church of Christ).
And another good page (particularly regarding the Jehovah's Witness sect) is that of Larry Ingram. You might also like much you'd see at the Sword and Staff web site.

It's my opinion that every Christian should be reading the weekly Christian news-magazine, WORLD. Editor Marvin Olasky says they now have a web site. You may want to check out www.worldmag.com. The article on 10/11/97 "Exercise Due Diligence" warns against liberalism within "Christian" colleges. Their religion is Presbyterian rather than Christian-only.
Another site with news of interest to Christians is at http://www.gospelcom.net/ifc.

You might find of interest the Restoration Quarterly web site.
Speaking of Christian unity, all MISSION MESSENGER issues have been placed on the internet for interested readers. By Natalie Murrie and Bob Lewis, we note. The Christian Chronicle is on line with news of various Church of Christ groups, both anti-instrumental and non-instrumental. For some reason these folks think God hates being praised by voices accompanied by musical instruments. That's wrong, of course.
