A New Bible for Muslims

How do you reach Muslims for Christ? With the Gospel, right? And where do we find that? In the Word of God, of course. But which Bible is  the right Bible for the task? Now that's a more complicated question, and not so easily answered... until now.

Norm's guest knows a thing or two about reaching people for Christ in the world's hotspots. He's about as intrepid as they come and can hold his own in any discussion on the Great Commission. We're glad to welcome back our old friend, Dr. Viggo Olsen.

Christians Under Fire

Every day news reaches our inboxes from around the globe detailing the suffering of Christians, punished for no other reason than simple hatred of their faith. Frankly, it breaks our hearts. But it also reminds us of something else - the incredible spiritual and numerical growth that results when true believers are put to the test. We remember those today who stand unspeakable tests of faith endurance, and honor their Lord in the process. And, we rejoice that it means a latter day miracle in places once impenetrable to the Gospel.

A dear friend, Steve Snyder knew all this intimately. His untimely death left an incredible void in our knowledge of the suffering church. But what he had to say before God called him home we need to pay close attention to.

The Church and Disaster Relief

The Church has always been a 'first responder.' In every crisis, physical or spiritual, God empowers His people to save lives and carry His compassion to the ends of the Earth. What does that mean in the 21st Century? Today's guest, Bob Simpkins, has the answer!

After the Flood, Pt. 2

Today, Bram takes us on-site for a laser look at the Christian response to the Memorial Weekend flooding disaster in the Hill Country of Texas.

Following Jesus through the Eye of the Needle

"Harder is it for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God..." Norm guest today, Kent Annan, decided to follow the call of Christ right through the 'eye of the needle' - living a humble and challenging life serving the destitute of Haiti. Never did simple things become so desirable than when he couldn't get them anymore. From air conditioning to cheeseburgers, pleasure after pleasure was stripped from his life. Funny thing, though. On the way he discovered wealth like he'd never known. Kent tells us his story, today.

Ambassadors for Peace, Pt. 2

Peace is built on the foundation of freedom and respect. In many nations of the world, personal freedom and conscience are under constant threat. How will that ever change? Through knowledge and understanding. Today’s guests complete an extraordinary interview with Norm as they discuss how Christians can make a profound and lasting difference in the lives of today and generations of tomorrow.

Listen Now:

Ambassadors for Peace, Pt. 1

Freedom of speech, assembly, and worship. Freedom from unlawful search, confiscation of property or imprisonment. The right to face your accuser, a fair trial and proportionate punishment.  Everyone believes in these things, right?  Well, it’s only possible for those who have heard of the Bill of Rights.  America is only one of a handful of nations on the planet which guarantee such rights to its citizens.

Today’s guests aim to change that.  And they’re making headway, as you’ll hear today. What makes them so passionate about human rights? Their unwavering commitment to the Gospel of Christ. Norm welcomes Gary Ansdell and Emil Haddad for the first of two programs in a series titled “Ambassadors for Peace.”

Fourth in our 'Sobering Reality Series': Great things are happening in the Christian Church of the Middle East. And it's because of the great things taking place in the centers of Christian learning.
