Daniel Strange: The Longings Our Culture Just Can't Stop Expressing
As Christians we sometimes feel like we're on another planet to our unbelieving friends and family. Daniel Strange wants to show you that the connections are there—in fact, the longings that our culture cannot help but express are the very ones that Jesus fulfils.
Blair Linne: How the Gospel Heals the Pain of Fatherlessness
Blair Linne’s personal story of growing up without a father at home reflects the experiences of millions. In her new book, Finding my Father she shows us that the gospel promises not just forgiveness but also a place in God's family, experienced in a local church, where they we can enjoy the fullness of his fatherly joy, care, wisdom, provision, protection and security.
Randy Newman: Learning from C.S. Lewis
At the height of his influence, C.S. Lewis was broadcasting his Mere Christianity lectures to almost 1.5 million people. There is so much we can learn from him.
You may feel inadequate to the task of evangelism, but in his new book Randy Newman skillfully helps us to apply the methods Lewis used (storytelling, humour, imagery and more) in our own conversations.
Rebecca McLaughlin: Evidence for the Bible's account of Jesus' birth
Many people assume that the story of the baby in the manger at Bethlehem is just another made-up fantasy for kids. In this episode we talked to respected apologist Rebecca McLaughlin about the evidence that Jesus was a real person, explaining the reliability of the Bible’s accounts of his life and why believing in a virgin birth is not as ridiculous as it might sound.
Laura Wifler: Teaching Our Kids to Pray
When children have something on their minds, they tend to run to their parents and caregivers. Wouldn’t it be great if they also learned that they can talk to God about anything and everything because Jesus has made that possible?
In this episode we chat to Laura Wifler, co-founder of Risen Motherhood about her new kids book Any Time, Any Place, Any Prayer.
Such brilliant insight in manageable snippets! Thank you.
