U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is being urged by more than 80 Senators and Representatives to “exhaust every possible option” to try and secure the release of American pastor Saeed Abedini, who is currently being held in prison in Iran.

“This is a significant bi-partisan effort to secure the freedom of a U.S. citizen who faces incredible torture and life-threatening punishment in one of Iran’s most brutal prisons – simply because of his Christian beliefs,” said Jordan Sekulow, executive director of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), in a statement on Thursday.

Favorite Book of The Bible

20130215-085519.jpg

I had a fun conversation with some people in our church bookstore before midweek service. We posed the question to each other “If you were on a deserted island and you can only have one of the 66 books in the Bible, which book would you chose?”

Basically we were asking what our favorite book of The Bible was.

As I thought about it, I found it hard to come up with an answer.I really love Romans, but at the same time I love Hebrews, Proverbs, John, Ephesians, 1 John, James and many others. There is so much to gather from all scripture that it was really a ridiculous question. How can someone choose? They’re all my favorites.

I couldn’t pick just one so I said it would be a tie between Romans and 1 John.

Which book or books would you choose?
