Recommended Studies – Latest Update



“How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night.

“He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.

“The wicked are not so, but they are like chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.” (Psa1:1-6)



I’ve had close to 200,000 reads on my online Journal, with over 150,000 visitors. On occasion I like to offer a list of the posts that have acquired the most readings. (These figures only account for my blog. The studies have reached untold people through many other avenues.)

In this entry is a listing of the five most read entries, beginning with the most read. There is also a note for each entry on what it is about. 


The Most Read Posts from My Journal

First: My Story –  

This is by far this is the most read from my Journal. Point at hand: ‘I don’t ask that my theology be your theology. This journal entry is simply about my walk with the Lord.’


Second: 700+ –

Note: This is where you can gain access over 700 studies that I’ve provided.


Third: Passing Through the Valley of Baca –

This entry provides an encouragement to all who need strengthening in the Lord. ‘The valley of Baca is the valley of tears. Betty and I have been there often and especially when we stood beside the grave of our son.’


Fourth: Mercy Triumphs Over Judgment – 

This entry takes up from the hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and includes a valuable lesson that all believers need to learn.


Fifth: Jesus, the Wonder and Mystery of the Bible – 

This entry deals with a question. ‘Did Jesus pre-exist as the Father in eternity, or with the Father.’ See what you think? The apostle calls Jesus Christ, the mystery that is hidden in God. 


I pray these studies will help you in your journey of faith. 

Thought I would throw in this video for you who would like to know a bit more about the Martin family. (It is taken from our 50th Wedding Celebration. We now have 51+ years of marriage.)


In Christ always, 


About Buddy

Lawrence "Buddy" Martin and his wife Betty are co-founders of Christian Challenge International. They have served the Lord in the ministry since the mid-1960s. (Read his testimony.) They began Christian Challenge in 1976 with a stewardship from the Lord. The ministry began as a ‘School for Christian Workers’.

Several hundred disciples have been trained under the auspices of Christian Challenge. Brother Martin received his Bachelor's Degree from International Seminary in Florida. His deepest love is the study of the Hebraic roots of the Christian faith. Bro. Buddy's wife, Betty, as co-founder of the ministry has been an integral part of the ministry since its founding .
