‘Let no one who is not eager for truth and peace enter here’ (Plato)

Articles on this site express varying points of view, to encourage mature thinking on serious issues. The assumption is that you will want to study a controversial topic from various angles before you arrive at a conclusion, rather than simply believe what someone told you when you were impressionable! (So some stuff here is ‘hot’. Proceed at your own risk!). See the Statement of Faith for John Mark Ministries' theological stance.

Armadale Baptist Church

I preached from Boreham’s former pulpit a few years ago – Armadale Baptist Church, Melbourne. There were about 40 people in the congregation. This church has a fairly good Boreham collection in a cabinet in their library. One lady commented: ‘Why did almost all of the congregation leave here when Boreham left?’ Good question! Rowland […]

Boreham Writing

F.W. Boreham was a preacher who was a household name during his lifetime but is now largely forgotten. From an essay by James Townsend: “The name of Boreham only rhymes with the word boredom.
