    TS&TT: He Gets Us... But Not Like That!

    Today on The Sword and The Trowel, Tom Ascol and Graham Gunden talk about the "He Gets Us" campaign and the two most recent ads that played during the Super Bowl.

    TS&TT: Traveling Through Vanity Fair - Living Faithfully In A Fallen World

    TS&TT: Traveling Through Vanity Fair - Living Faithfully In A Fallen World

    Today on The Sword and The Trowel, Tom Ascol and Graham Gunden talk about traveling through Vanity Fair, borrowing an analogy from John Bunyan in his allegorical book: Pilgrim's Progress. They talk about living under the authority of Christ, when we are living in a wicked and fallen world. Our culture is always trying to disciple us in ways that are contradictory to what God says is right and true and beautiful. How do we live faithfully in this world and fight to remain on the path of righteousness?
