Studying Christian Persecution, Pt. 2

Yesterday began a vital conversation on the state of persecution against Christians in the 21st Century. The 'good news?' There are more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ in the world today than ever before. The 'bad news?' The Devil noticed. Persecution is more intense and the suffering of innocent believers more excruciating than ever.

We need to get our minds - and hearts - around that fact.

Then we can discuss what we can do about it... which is what we'll do on today's program as Norm welcomes back Nicholas Kerton-Johnson.

Studying Christian Persecution, Pt. 1

Why would anyone study "Christian persecution?" Sounds depressing on the face of it, wouldn't you say? Norm's guest today has a very different take on the subject. In fact, we'd say he's got God's take on it. Norm welcomes a new friend: Nicholas Kerton-Johnson.

Tea with Hezbollah

Of the interesting, intrepid people we interview on Compassion Radio, Carl Medearis ranks at the top. He keeps pace with some of the most adventurous people we know. His newest book "Tea with Hezbollah" is a good indicator. It's not just a gripping real-life account of his journey through the contested territories of the Middle East, it's a modern guidebook to living the story of the Good Samaritan.

00:0000:00

Muslims, Christians & Jesus

Carl Medearis is one of those rare people who really know both the religion of Islam and the various cultures it calls 'home.' Where many scholars have relationships with ideas, he's gained his understanding by building solid and productive relationships with real people. And what he found about Muslim understanding of Jesus is profound. Even more important is the genuine openness of muslims to a real relationship with Jesus.

00:0000:00

Search for the Epic Life, Pt. 1

"Let's see the world after graduation, before 'real life' kicks in."

They set out to discover the EPIC life and they weren't coming home till they found it.  Norm begins an amazing journey of discovery with Trey Sklar, Jedd Medefind and Mike Peterson, three of the "Four Souls" who documented their adventure.

Divine Appointments

Serendipity - 'an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident.' The faithful Christian life can and should be full of unexpected and delightful coincidences. But it's no accident, of course. When God sets the agenda, we find ourselves in the most joyful place we could possibly imagine - the center of HIS will.  And others will discover a loving God through us.

We don't think it's an accident that Norm welcomes author Bob Jacks to discuss Divine Appointments, today...

Norm continues his conversation with Terry Madison about the situation in Myanmar (Burma) for believers there.

00:0000:00

The Body in Burma, Pt. 1

Norm welcomes back good friend and expert on the persecuted church, Terry Madison.  In the country of Myanmar (Burma), Christian citizens are treated with contempt, harassment and even violence by their government. It is a truly closed and oppressive nation. Does that mean the Church is on the decline there? Hardly. But their lives truly are 'hard.' What can we do? Well, Compassion Radio is already doing it! You'll heard 'what' and 'how' today and tomorrow.

00:0000:00

Building The Church in Burma

Jacob & Sandar Mung join Norm today to tell the inside story on Christianity in Burma. If we're going to equip the pastors there, it's helpful to understand what challenges they face!

00:0000:00

Campaign for Burma

Norm makes a new friend today. Jennifer Quigley is the voice of a new generation. If you think all young people are clueless on the issues of persecution around the world, think again.  Working the halls of power in multiple nations, Jennifer is having a profound impact through the organization she represents, the Campaign for Burma.

00:0000:00

Faith in the Halls of Power

Do the powerful believe in anything? It's a fair question. The more important question is 'Do the Faithful have a place in the Halls of Power?' Norm's guest, Michael Lindsay, believes so. But it's not about conservative social agendas or liberal welfare policies. What it is might just surprise you.
