Clear analysis from a Christian worldview

    The Mere Christian: C.S. Lewis, Part 3

    The Mere Christian: C.S. Lewis, Part 3

    After his reluctant conversion, C.S. Lewis's life began to change. In his friendships and work at Oxford, his faith started to make a difference. But a phone call changed everything. When Lewis was invited to address the nation on the BBC about spiritual hope during WWII, he started to become the C.S. Lewis we know today. From then on, he would write book after book, letter after letter, and become the world spokesman for "mere Christianity."

    The Most Reluctant Convert: C.S. Lewis, Part 2

    The Most Reluctant Convert: C.S. Lewis, Part 2

    “In the Trinity Term of 1929 I gave in, and admitted that God was God, and knelt and prayed, perhaps that night the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England.” This is no normal conversion story, but so C. S. Lewis narrates his journey of faith in Surprised by Joy. Like so many parts of Lewis’s life, his conversion is full of surprises, twists and turns, and the evidence of God’s work. Throughout his life, Lewis was blessed with rich friendships, and in this episode, his friends, his past, and the God he had been “trying not to meet” come together in a remarkable and reluctant conversion.

    Searching for Joy: C.S. Lewis, Part 1

    Searching for Joy: C.S. Lewis, Part 1

    Before he was known to the world as C. S. Lewis, “Jacks” as his friends and family called him, struggled through his early years. After his mother’s passing and the trenches of the Great War, Lewis was a fledgling scholar trying to make his way in the world. But he was also searching for Joy. This opening episode traces Lewis’s life from the paradise of Little Lea to the trenches on the Western Front and back to Oxford again.

    Maundy Thursday and the New Passover with Terry Feix

    Maundy Thursday and the New Passover with Terry Feix

    On Thursday of Holy Week, Jesus ate the Passover meal with his disciples in what we now call the "Last Supper." Then he washed the disciples' feet, and they went to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray. But Maundy Thursday gets its name from something else that happened that Thursday. Jesus gave his disciples a "new commandment," or in Latin, a "new mandate" to love one another. This command of love has been celebrated in the church for centuries. 
    In this message, Terry Feix gives a message on Maundy Thursday and explains the way the whole Bible comes together in Jesus's final meal. Watch Terry teach live today at Crossings Community Church.

    Pontius Pilate with Terry Feix

    Pontius Pilate with Terry Feix

    One of the great conversations in the Bible is between Jesus and Pontius Pilate in John 18-19. Pilate is shrouded in mystery, and we know very little of his life outside of the Bible. Cole and Terry discuss Pilate's life, the role he plays in Jesus's death, and what we can learn as we anticipate Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

    The Songs of Easter with Dr. Kim Arnold

    The Songs of Easter with Dr. Kim Arnold

    The Easter season is full of great music, and one way to focus on Christ's death and resurrection during Holy Week is to read, sing, and meditate on great hymns from Christian history. Dr. Kim Arnold has picked out 5 hymns for Holy Week this year that guide our hearts to the cross and the empty tomb. To read about these hymns, see her article, "Hymns for Lent." 
    "O Sacred Head Now Wounded" - Paul Gerhardt 
    "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross" - Isaac Watts
    "O Love Divine, What Hast Thou Done?" - Charles Wesley
    "In Christ Alone" - Keith Getty and Stuart Townsend
    "Christ the Lord Is Risen Today" - Charles Wesley

Rich in Knowledge and Wisdom

I’ve been listening to this podcast for a little over a year now. It’s by far my favorite discussion/commentary style podcast about biblical principles, currents events from the Christian perspective, and deep insights into the revelation of Jesus Christ. If you also listen to Cole and Terry’s sermons, this podcast gives a little insight into how they prepare their teachings. It’s been incredibly beneficial for someone like me who is wanting to get into ministry and doesn’t have the proper schooling or people with rich knowledge pouring into me. I’ve learned so much from these guys and have been truly blessed by what their doing for the Kingdom of God.

Calm Voices That We Need

Great podcast. I love how they mix it up with each new episode. They will take you through biblical chapters and enhance your understanding of the scriptures one week. They’ll recommend books and discuss their themes in another. Then they will take a look at cultural norms in today’s society through the lens of Biblical thought. Discussions are well thought out and I learn something new each listen. It has also enhanced my discipleship with my family and friends. Big thanks to Cole and Terry for doing such important work.
