Serving Where He Leads You, Pt. 1

Louise Allard was definitely a product of the "ME Generation." As a young nursing student in Quebec, she faced the biggest moral dilemmas of her life with an unsurprising lack of self-examination... Just like millions of other brilliant, 'enlightened' people of her generation. 

But then, God...

Now this well-trained professional medical specialist and administrator is an unlikely Hero of the Kingdom. You'll hear her story today and in the two following, inspiring broadcasts.

It’s WAY Beyond ‘Peer Pressure’…

Ashlyn Brock is a great student with big dreams. She's also a follower of Christ who takes her faith seriously.

The Unknowns, Pt. 2

Today, Bram finishes a fascinating discussion with Ethan Morse, Chief Warrant Officer 5 with the California National Guard, and Sentinenl of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Badge #548. His documentary "The Unknowns" is a masterpiece, but it's the life that God has grown in his heart, and the spiritual fruit that God is growing in his life that are the bigger story...

The Unknowns, Pt. 1

As a young boy, Ethan Morse had a dream - to be a guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Only one problem - it's not something for which you sign up. Actually, it's an honor that finds you...

Well, sometimes those dreams are planted in our hearts by God himself, as Ethan was eventually to discover. The story, from starry-eyed boy, to angry teen, to the shaken generation of 9/11, to one of the highest honors known to a soldier, was alll in God's plan. Ethan's story now includes a powerful biographic documentary on the making of the most storied soldiers to serve on American soil, the "Old Guard."

Compassion Under Fire

Why would anyone run into a burning building? To save lives, of course. But you don't want to do it without the right training and equipment. Well, there's a fire in the Middle East right now, and it's a raging inferno. On the political, military and spiritual frontlines sits Mosul, Iraq. One bloody street at a time, the Iraqi national forces are clawing back their country from the death grip of ISIS. And right alongside them is a group of the most unlikely heroes ever - David Eubank and the medics of the Free Burma Rangers. They've rescued hundreds of innocent lives already, and they've paid for it dearly. But more than rescuing victims of bombs and bullets, they're bringing a vibrant, living testimony of the Power of God to transform lives - no matter who they might be...

David joins Bram for this historic Compassion Radio broadcast, recorded by Skype from the active battlefield.

00:0000:00

What is Life Like for Middle East Christians? Pt. 2

Martyrdom and the Media, Pt. 2

The Cross isn't just powerful to save us, it is a weapon to be wielded. Sound strange? Well, consider what Pastor Tim Floyd noticed recently about news coverage of recent ISIS attacks. In the West, they primarily go after people of privilege. In the East, they primarily go after people of fervent faith. Tim's clear-headed blog about the distinction has gone viral on social media, and today he finishes a powerful discussion with Bram about the living legacy of modern martyrs.

When the mainstream media doesn't know how to process the seeming insanity of Believers who would willingly lay down their lives for the Gospel, we're here to put in all in perpective...

00:0000:00

Martyrdom and the Media, Pt. 1

Dozens of innocents are slaughtered at an arena in Manchester, England. The same week dozens of Christians are mowed down in Minya, Egypt. Both senseless tragedies, right? Not so fast...

Both of these atrocities were perpetrated by adherents to ISIS. Yet in one important way, these murders were vastly different. You see, most of those killed in Egypt were given a choice. "What?" you ask. "I didn't hear that in the news reports!" And, sadly, you would be correct. And there a reasons for that, as today's guest will explain over the next two programs.

The Rev. Tim Floyd pastors Providence Baptist Church, a very missional and motivated fellowship literally across the river from our Nation's Capitol. But it's his journey through the places where God is doing His best work that have brought him into the presence of real power. It also gives him some truly insightful wisdom to share with us

What Good is God? - CR CLASSIC

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.

Search and Rescue

Chief Warrant Officer 5 Jeff Crandall has been in a World of Hurt. From the bleeding edge of the War on Terror, to the backcountry rescues, his career with the Military as a combat helicopter pilot has put him in some difficult situations, to say the least...

All along the way, God and His Word have been rescuing Jeff! He shares his story with Bram, today.

When the Going Gets Tough, The Kingdom Gets Growing, Pt. 1

Call it the 'Last Mile' of the Great Commission. He brings big vision and insight for the future of Christian outreach.

ISIS - It’s a Battle of Ideas - CR CLASSIC…

As you think, so you act - and the poisoned thoughts of ISIS have led to unspeakable obscenities and atrocities. Why would anyone bother to engage in a communication with someone from ISIS? Because God will, and He does. We may not be able to imagine it, but even the most corrupt hearts can be changed; the most evil, redeemed. But members of ISIS and those they are recruiting will never choose another path if they don't know it's there... Cher joins Norm in studio for a frank and needed discussion.
