What in the World is God Doing? Pt. 2

Dr. Charles Farhadian continues his survey of current world Christianity. He leads us farther west across the world's largest continent, Asia...

00:0000:00

What in the World is God Doing? Pt. 1

Dr. Charles Farhadian wonders as he wanders. Good scholars do. He's a very good student of history, particularly that which concerns the Kingdom of God. And he has the 'Big Picture' in mind. So for the next four programs he'll be our guide on a round-the-world adventure as we consider what God is doing now, in the 21st Century, to advance His Kingdom. We'll start our trek just over the International Date Line...

India, One Village at a Time

How do you evangelize the most populous nation on earth? One village at a time. Sounds like a straight-forward proposition, no? But what if there are 500 thousand villages to reach? The India Gospel League is proving that faith means action, and that faithful action speaks louder than words. Norm continues this insightful interview with the Rev. Samuel Stephens.

00:0000:00

India’s Neediest People

The Rev. Samuel Stephens does things every day that we only read about in the Bible.  Today Norm learns about the amazing breadth and depth of ministry of the India Gospel League. Our encounters with the church in India have tremendously influenced the ministry of Compassion Radio.

00:0000:00

India, Heart to Heart

There's an oasis of love and learning in the heart of India - many actually. And they are the centers of India Gospel League's amazing outreach to the orphans of that country. They're saving children, building minds and changing hearts. Norm starts this tour of India with the Rev. Sam Stephens today.

Living the Sermon on the Mount, Pt. 2

Jesus addressed the issue of true happiness in his most famous sermon. And He turned the world on its head as a result. The message He proclaimed is still revolutionary and troubling. It is also powerful and transformational for anyone who takes it seriously. Norm picks up a fascinating and, at times, uncomfortable look at the Sermon on the Mount with guest Glenn Stassen.

00:0000:00

Living the Sermon on the Mount, Pt. 1

Glenn Stassen takes risks. He writes risky things. We like him.

Get ready for a whole new take on one of the most famous sermons ever spoken. Glenn joins Norm for a two part  indepth look at the Sermon on the Mount.

Rich Christians, Hungry World

Man cannot live by bread alone, Jesus said. But we can't live without it, either.

We're all hungry for something. If we have enough food to fill our bellies, we have the luxury of pursuing other meaningful spiritual things. So, first things, first. In a generation of unparalleled prosperity and unimaginable poverty, how do we imagine a future beyond the stalemate? Norm's guest, Ron Sider, has some ideas.

Giving Our Children a Global Vision

They say the way to know if someone is really committed is that they "put their money where their mouth is." Well, we take it a step farther, as any mission-sending family can attest. The measure of devotion for any parent is to put their children where their mouth is... Bram joins Norm in studio, today.

00:0000:00

Lebanon’s Syrian Refugees

John Bouchebel has been to the frontlines. Many frontlines. Why? Because that's where the ministry is. Today he discusses with Norm the current situation for Syrian refugees in Lebanon.

00:0000:00

What is God Doing for the World’s Refugees?

Enoch Wan, our good friend, is up to his armpits in crises and challenges. And he wouldn't have it any other way! So how do you know what God is up to in a hurting world? You chase down His people doing great work in seemingly impossible situations...

00:0000:00

From China with Love, Pt.1

Norm and Cher have done it all. Well, not really. But as your representatives they have gone more places and ministered to more people, than almost anyone alive. But this month is special, and for good reason! Norm talks with Bram about what's going on right now in the hallowed halls of Peking University, the "Harvard of China."

00:0000:00

A Legacy of Heroism – Story of Robert Morrison

When it seemed impossible, one praying, faithful man opened up China for the Gospel. It's an extraordinary story you've probably never heard. Today is no textbook lesson. Instead, Norm brings history to life! You'll see how the fruit of this extraordinary man's life is still nourishing the Church 200 hundred years later.

00:0000:00

Institute for Global Engagement

Chris Seiple is entrepreneurial by any measure. He's also one of the few people in the world who gets the respect of governments and academia alike. Best part? He's an evangelical believer and a doer of the Word. Today he shares with Norm how his 'Institute for Global Engagement' came to be.

00:0000:00

Egyptian Physician Turned Missionary

Egypt is a country  that needs many things. Well-trained doctors would be prime among them. But the nation is suffering from a great spiritual sickness, as well. Norm's guest today, Dr. Kamil Shoukraua, knew he had to do something about both.

00:0000:00

A Kingdom Grows in Iran

Is the Kingdom of God a place or a people? The simple answer is the latter, but the places His people go aren't left unchanged! Though we don't hear about it much, Iran is very much alive as a growing outpost of the Kingdom. Our good friend, Shirin Taber, returns for an important look behind the Persian veil. 

00:0000:00

From China, With Love, Pt. 1

China ain't what it used to be - that's for sure! Norm and Cher know that first-hand. After 25 years of direct involvement in the life of that booming nation, they've seized on the opportunity to teach the leaders of the future through a summer session at Peking University, the "Harvard of China."

Norm joins Bram by phone from Beijing for an update.

00:0000:00

The Iraq We Have Lost

Even as God works through His people to heal and restore the wounds of war, some things about Iraq are lost forever. Yousif Thomas Morris joins Norm for a look into the hard realities, the spiritual challenges of the present and the hope for tomorrow.

00:0000:00

Who’s in Charge in Nigeria - Boko Haram or God?

Jim Jennings returns for a second day to provide some insight and perspective on another hot spot of religious persecution - Nigeria.

00:0000:00

Chaos in Iraq

Our hearts are heavy. The world's oldest Christian community is on the verge of extinction. That's no small thing. And the nation that surrounds them is unraveling at the seams. So what can we do? How can we pray? Our good friend, Jim Jennings, knows all about effective prayer. He also has a big heart for the people of the Middle East. We'll need both if we're going to do spiritual warfare on behalf of these war-weary family.

00:0000:00

Teaching the Truth in China, Pt. 3

When Christ moves in, He cleans house. Anywhere He's allowed, that is. Today Bram concludes a powerful interview with Jonathan Leftwich, pastor of the Fellowship at Plum Creek in Kyle, TX. Today they focus on the fruit of a recent revival in the government 'Three Self' church outside of Hong Kong, China.
