    The Tone of Our Evangelism

    The Tone of Our Evangelism

    It’s important that we proclaim a clear and accurate message when we share the gospel. It’s also important that our tone matches the grace of our message. Paul tells us that our speech needs to be done with grace and salt. (See Col. 4:2-6). We need to know what he meant.

    Randy Newman and Jonathan Edwards and The Love of God

    Randy Newman and Jonathan Edwards and The Love of God

    Most Christians know of Jonathan Edwards and may have heard a quote or two of his. And they’ve been encouraged to read his writings. But he’s really hard to read. So getting help from George Marsden a great historian and biographer is key. This podcast digs into Edwards and what Marsden helps us see clearly.

    Samuel D. James and Digital Liturgies

    Digital technologies, the internet, Facebook, and many other means of connection are having their effects on us. They don’t just tell us what we should believe. (And that’s bad enough!) They also shape how we view ourselves, our world, and our God!

    Dai Hankey and Gospel Hope for Weary Souls

    Dai Hankey and Gospel Hope for Weary Souls

    We hate to admit it (and that’s part of the problem) but, sometimes, we get tired - tired of serving God, tired of reading our Bible, tired of going to church. Dai Hankey has experienced all that kind of spiritual fatigue and has good lessons for those who need hope in the midst of exhaustion.

    Aaron Welty and The Heroics of Weakness

    Aaron Welty and The Heroics of Weakness

    The Bible tells us a lot about weakness and how God uses the weak to display his greatness and his strength. But we don’t like this theme very much. Aaron Welty explores this important idea and how he sees it play out in movies, stories, comic books and his life.

Enjoy Randy’s Discussions

Randy’s funny, insightful, and a great listener⏤rare qualities in many podcast hosts these days: too many fill every moment of silence. Randy is skilled at asking good questions and giving his guests the space to respond. He does this (1) while also contributing good insights of his own without overshadowing his guests and (2) while asking questions that clearly arise from things the guest has said; he’s not simply running through a pre-set list of questions. It’s a real dialogue on great topics.
