Review: When Violence is the Answer by Tim Larkin

When Violence is the Answer: Learning How to do What it Takes When Your Life is at Stake By Tim Larkin Tim Larkin often says that violence is usually not the answer, but when it is, it is the only answer.

The first thing we read on the “About” page is that Robert Jeffress “is senior pastor of the 13,000-member First Baptist Church, Dallas, Texas, and a Fox News contributor.” He has a long list of impressive interviews with Big Names, and he recently led his church in a $135 million church renovation which covers six … Continue reading
