Thinking ‘Christianly’ About Muslims

If a Muslim walked in your door you'd know it, right? You'd know basically what he believes, where he comes from and what he thinks of you, right?

Let's stop right there. Consider the possibility - however remote - that you might just have some preconceptions about this person. Perhaps even a mistaken impression or two. OK - are we on the same page, now? We'll leave it to Norm and his guest, Warren Larsen to take it from here.

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.

An Algerian Disciple

When you think the Muslim world, what comes to mind? The Middle East? Central Asia? What about Africa? Algeria is at the heart of African Islam. It's also the heart of a growing Christian community.

Understanding Ukraine’s Conflict

A Lawyer’s Perspective on Syria and Ukraine

The Devil's in the details, they say. As the information trickles in from the war fronts in Syria and Ukraine, it's evident the Devil really is in those details. And at the same time, it's evident that God is doing tremendous work building His Kingdom right in the midst of it. The stakes have never been higher for the Middle East. Our God has never been more evident... if we know where to look.

Tim Toronchuk has devoted a good portion of his life to the Great Commission. And of the many countries where he's served, one nation holds the greatest claim on his heart - Ukraine.

Today and tomorrow Tim gives us an insider's look at the Great Revival in Ukraine and the Great Challenge they face...

Be Strong AND Courageous!

When you journey to some of the world's most difficult places, the path isn't always well laid-out. Thankfully, the Word promises that God Himself will light the way. The greatest model of that is probably the first Old Testament Prophet/Leader, Joshua.

Cancer, Comfort & Christ, Pt. 2

Cathie Young and her husband had a choice to make: Live in fear, or live in faith. Sounds like a simple choice. But it became a day-by-day, minute-by-minute battle with forces seemingly beyond their control. Together they discovered how brightly the LIGHT truly shines, by discovering it in a truly dark place. They continue to shine that light for others through a compelling new ministry to others going through similar dark valleys.
