A Prophetic Minority, Pt. 1

There's a lot being said today about what the Church ought to be saying. Better to spill ink than blood. But is that all the Gospel is? A lot of talk?

Norm and Cher think a bit differently, and our Compassion Radio Partners love them for it. For the next two programs they take a hard look at the headlines with a truly eternal perspective.

Voices of Iraq

We know there are real lives behind the headlines yet it's often difficult to have genuine compassion for people we've never met. Today, Norm addresses that issue in a very personal way. Shortly before ISIS made its move against Kirkuk, Norm sat down with some of the most public Christians in the region. What we hear from the Police Chief and a Pastor of the largest Evangelical Church in Kurdistan may disturb you. It will also equip you for serious spiritual warfare...

Report from Iraq

After a decade of mind-numbing war reports from Iraq, our attention has shifted to the 'new' thing called 'ISIS.' What's easy to forget is that this 'new' thing is really a continuation of the 'old' war - and it's being fought on the same ground.

It's getting no easier for the Christians in the crossfire, so it's vitally important that we pray for them without ceasing. So what should we pray for, specifically? Well, our old friend Dan Wooding has recently spent time within rifleshot of the latest frontlines. He brings us the story of his latest adventure, today.

What If No Christians Are Left?

Today in the Middle East, the Rule of Unintended Consequences is in full force. Military action intended to liberate and stabilize has resulted in a new truly Dark Age. That is most true for the oldest Christian communities on Earth. The slaughter and displacement could result in not a single Christian left in a number of countries. Does it matter? Should we care? Norm and Cher dig into the unfolding tragedy, today.

00:0000:00

Let the Arrows Fly!

The Kingdom of God is in a war, but not with Isis or the current culture. We're at war with 'Principalities and Powers in High Places.' Now in Christian families, God has given us tremendous weapons of truth and power over falsehood. Some of the most important ammunition we have is found in our own 'quivers' and we don't always want to see those arrows 'fly.' But it's exactly what God intended, and it's our job to follow His marching orders. Who are these 'arrows?' Norm and Bram explore that question in studio, today.

00:0000:00

Remembering Dr. Kenneth Bailey

In God's economy, the Greatest shall be the Least. And perhaps it's perfectly suited that Norm's discussion today concerns someone you've probably never heard of... until now. Our good friend, Dr. Gary Burge, joins Norm by phone to celebrate one man who has probably done more to influence your own spiritual growth than just about anyone else in the past 50 years!

00:0000:00

Counterfeit Gods

You'd know an idol if you saw it, right? And, of course, you'd have no trouble recognizing the real deal, right?

Well, Norm's guest today, Tim Keller, is here to challenge you on both scores. Get ready for a no-holds-barred look at the state of western Christianity. Can it hold a candle to the faith of first century Christians? Tim's answer will challenge and inspire you.

00:0000:00

A Great and Terrible Love

Norm welcomes guest Mark Galli -  a man with a lot to share. Some of it joyful. Some of it painful. But it's all about God. And that means it's holy.

00:0000:00

A Lifetime of Wisdom

Some people are just wise - you can see it in their eyes; in the words that spill from their lips. One of the wisest people we know is Joni Eareckson Tada. Her survival after traumatic injury is worthy of a movie. Her amazing accomplishments as an artist, leader, spokesperson and writer are known the world over. But its her deep abiding love of Jesus, His Word and His way of life that will likely have the most profound impact. In this world and the next.

Wealth and Poverty for Christians, Pt. 2

Norm concludes an eye-opening discussion on the real meaning of wealth and poverty on today's broadcast with his guest Brian Matz.

00:0000:00

Wealth and Poverty for Christians, Pt. 1

Brian Matz, Norm's guest for the next two broadcasts, sheds light on what the bible has to say about wealth and poverty. Think you know where this one's headed? Don't jump to conclusions too quickly!

00:0000:00

Prayer, A New Wave is Coming, Pt. 3

Today wraps up a fascinating discussion of Norm's recent trip to the World Prayer Assembly in Jakarta, Indonesia. Does prayer really make a difference in this day and age? You're about to find out! Cher joins Norm in studio.

00:0000:00

Prayer, A New Wave is Coming, Pt. 2

Today continues the discussion on the amazing World Prayer Assembly recently held in Juakarta, Indonesia. Cher joins Norm in studio.

00:0000:00

Prayer, A New Wave is Coming, Pt. 1

Prayer sometimes moves the hand of God. Sometimes it moves people to do impossible things in His name. For the next three programs, Norm and Cher explore the power of prayer in a modern world. Can it really make a difference? Norm's recent trip to the World Prayer Assembly in Jakarta, Indonesia leaves no doubt.

00:0000:00

Invitation to World Missions, Pt. 1

Who were the greatest missionaries of all time - The original apostles? William Carey, Mary Slessor, or Hudson Taylor? Or was it David Brainerd, John Paton, Adoniram Judson, or Robert Morrison? Well, if today's guest has anything to do with it, someone - maybe many - from this generation will join the pantheon of God's 'Lions of the Faith.' Norm welcomes Dr. Timothy Tennent of Asbury Theological Seminary for part 1 of an enlightening discussion on where missions and the Church of Christ are headed in the 21st Century.

00:0000:00

Is God on America’s Side?

America will be voting in the next few weeks. Who does God want you to vote for? Norm's guest, Dr. Irwin Lutzer, would argue that God has no opinion. God does, however, have legitimate demands on the Christian family, and America as a nation. So, what does God want?

As pastor of America's premier evangelical church, Moody Bible, Dr. Lutzer has never shied away from culture clashes, faith vs. ignorance, and yes, even politics. Will God continue to bless America? Listen today and find out!

00:0000:00

Children of the Nations, Pt. 2

Chris and Debbie Clark conclude their discussion with Norm Nelson.

00:0000:00

Children of the Nations, Pt. 1

New friends, Chris and Debbie Clark, join Norm in studio, today and tomorrow.

00:0000:00

What Good is God?

Suffering continues around the world. Our brightest scientists and philosophers have dismissed the notion of a God who cares and engages with His creation, much less the wayward people He left in charge of the place. How can God possibly be real? And even if He is, what difference could it possibly make? Norm's guest today, Philip Yancey, doesn't shy away from such questions. In fact he doggedly pursues them with the tenacity of a journalist. He's got plenty to share with us today.

00:0000:00

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.

00:0000:00

World Prayer Movement, Pt. 1

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

Arabs in the Shadow of Israel

"If you prick us, do we not bleed?" So says the misunderstood Shakespearean character Shylock. The troubled Merchant of Venice also happened to be a Jew in a society suspicious of all things Jewish.

The same words are said today by the people living in the shadow of the modern Israel. The Arabs of the West Bank, many of them Christians, simply ask of us in the West that we notice their suffering. It's what Christ would do - and does today. Norm's guest, Tony Malouf, explains.
