In this issue


Upcoming Seminar, "Lost Books of the Bible"

Are there lost books of the Bible? What Jewish writings are preserved from the time between the Old and New Testament? What insights can the Dead Sea Scrolls and extra-biblical first century texts give us about Jesus? Scripture is the authority for Christians. But what about these other books? Can we learn from them? Join us to find out! Our presenter is Dr. Craig Evans, one of the world's leading experts on the Dead Sea Scrolls, intertestamental literature, and first century Judaism.


Over 140 attendees enjoyed a book launch party with TBS alum and Board member Stan Goss at Texas Traditions Bank on Thursday, January 11, 2024. Rising from a childhood laced with devastation and heartbreak, Stan's book reveals how he found immense inward healing and earthly successes with the Lord as his companion. Tears of Sorrow, Tears of Joy shares his journey of conquering hardships while also fully grasping the nature of both pain and joy, and shares his vibrant passion and strategies to inspire spiritual elders to fully live out their crown of glory years. Stan is a Master Executive Coach, community leader, family man, and passionate servant of the Lord devoted to inspiring Christian spiritual eldership. The book was published by TBS's publishing division, Nehemiah Press,
