Billboards established by the American Atheists are telling us that the Christmas story found in the New Testament is a myth! Are they right? Is the Christmas story irrational? Do we have to discount the New Testament’s account of the nativity in order to “celebrate reason?” And perhaps the biggest claim – that it’s a […]

Christianity And Economics Part 2: What Is Money?
