Bee-Keeping for Afghanistan

Joe knows 'bees.' He also knows how much God loves the people of Afghanistan. He knows this because he's one of the intrepid followers of Christ bringing that love to the people of that fascinating nation. Norm explains today.


TV to the Arab World, Pt. 2

Christian/Muslim understanding is only a click way - just ask Norm's guests today. In part 2 of this fascinating interview, we'll get a whole new perspective on Arab culture and entertainment. It's being used to bring the Gospel to Asia. And the audience is surprisingly appreciative.


TV to the Arab World, Pt. 1

How do you reach a billion Muslims with the soul-freeing Gospel of Jesus Christ? Norm's guests today have a novel answer. One satellite dish at a time. If you wonder what people are actually watching in the Middle East and beyond, keep listening...


Intro to Faith-Based Diplomacy, Pt. 1

Separation of Church and State - it's mantra for the thoroughly modern political world. To a secularized Western mentality, 'faith' belongs in a box along with 'extremism' 'totalitarianism' and 'oppression.' 

It wasn't always that way, of course, not should it necessarily stay that way. Brian Cox helps us grapple with the ramifications of thoroughly modern believers who engage in the all-important business of modern diplomacy.

Do We Have Room for Prophets?

Everything that God has to say can be found in the Bible, right? Stop and think about that for a minute. Would that mean that God has nothing new to say? Or even more troubling, that He has absolutely nothing to say to those living in the 21st Century? Is there no new wine for new wineskins? Are we just custodians of what came before? Is there something else we need to consider?

Norm explores this question with an old friend, Gary Burge, today.

World Prayer Movement, Pt. 2

Norm concludes a powerful discussion on the real power of prayer in the 21st century. John Robb joins in to describe his work and vision.


World Prayer Movement, Pt. 1

What happens when God's people pray? Healings? Breakthroughs? Miracles? What happens when millions of faithful Christians pray in concert? Norm's guest for today and tomorrow - John Robb - has dedicated his life to discovering the answer to that question.


What Christians Really Believe

We all know what it means to be a Christian, right? WRONG... Norm's guest today, Rodney Stark has some compelling insight into the heart and mind of the modern Western church.  And he blows wide open the dissonance between what we SAY we believe, and what we actually hold to be true.  It's going to be a mind-blowing half hour.


His Heart Is in Lebanon

Tom Atema is in love with the country of Lebanon. And not because it's an easy place to be these days. But God is at work there, and Tom wants to be where God is. You will want to as well after hearing his story...


Doors Are Open

Brother Andrew often says - Every door is open to go in and proclaim Christ, as long as you are willing to go and are not worried about coming back." He wrote that during the darkest days of the Cold War.

Opportunity for the Gospel to penetrate every culture is flourishing like never before. With new technologies, economies and travel, we can be 'with' others almost anywhere. Opportunity doesn't necessarily mean 'freedom without risk,' however. And the circumstances under which the Gospel is spreading are unique in the history of mankind. David Curry, the current CEO of Open Doors, USA joins Norm today.

Iraqi Refugees In Denmark

Your country is being overrun by Muslim refugees. A political backlash ensues. What's the Christian response? First step - the TRUTH. Norm's guest, Birthe, is facing the reality of misconceptions and xenophobia in one of the world's most tolerant countries - Denmark.

First surprise - the river of refugees from Iraq into northern Europe include tens of thousands of believing Christians. Whatever their religion, they need to see the love of Christ in action...


Prayer: The Power To Change The World - Pt.3

Norm concludes a power three-part series on the Power of Prayer, with his guest John Robb, who wrote the book on the subject.


Prayer: The Power To Change The World - Pt.2

So prayer can change things. How? John Robb continues his conversation with Norm today in part 2 of this important series on prayer.


Prayer: The Power To Change The World - Pt.1

So you want to change the world. So? Into what? For what purpose? Why? We can't get to the real answers without asking the right questions.  Norm's guest today, John Robb, will get us pointed in the right direction as we start an important series.


To Syria’s Refugees – ‘Compassion Radio Cares!’

If we could say it to their faces, we would. In fact, we have. But oh, we need to be able to say it to so many more - and bring actions that back it up. Cher joins Norm in studio today to bring the latest on the Syrian refugee crisis.


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.


What You Need to Know About Healing

Jehovah Rapha - The God Who Heals. It's one of the names God calls Himself. Did He retire that name, or is He still in the business of healing? If so, how does He do it? Does He promise healing? If so, do we believe Him? Norm's guest today - Dr. Harold Sala - has some hard-won insight, and an eloquence to explain some seemingly difficult spiritual concepts. He joins Norm by phone.


Understanding Christian Mission

It seems simple enough - 'preach the Gospel to All Peoples.' That's the Great Commission, right? Things tend to get a little more complicated when we actually try to accomplish this simple command. We're talking about reaching 7 billion people, after all. But does it need to be that way? Is the Gospel really like a bloated government program that no one really understands or can get a handle on?

Or can it be... simpler? Scott Sundquist has some intriguing answers and insights for us, today.


A Peace Zone in Syria

Is there any peace to be found in the unending war zone known as Syria? Norm went to find out. He brings it all together in this conversation with Lauren Homer.


Christians in the Age of Wealth, Pt. 2

Craig Blomberg joins Norm for part 2 of a thought-provoking discussion on Kingdom living in all aspects of life: material, emotional and spiritual.


Christians in the Age of Wealth, Pt. 1

Life in the modern world is a struggle, right? There are bills to pay, responsibilities, futures to plan for. And often we're reminded that we're living in the most prosperous times in the history of the world. On top of that, our faith calls us to a kind of generous living that requires serious stretching of our faith, our time, our pocketbooks. Something's gotta give, right?

Our guest today and tomorrow has some fascinating things to say about Kingdom living in a marketing age. Norm welcomes a new friend, Craig Blomberg.
