A few weeks ago, we posted a brief interview with Mike Horton in which he talks about our upcoming conference at sea, “Conversations for a Modern Reformation.” Now, you have a chance to hear the rest of the hosts talk about the cruise and their conference sessions: Rod Rosenbladt on “What Drove Luther’s Hammer” Kim [...]

In recent days, Kevin DeYoung and Greg Gilbert have taken a fair number of hits for their arguments in What is the Mission of the Church? (Crossway, 2011). (See one review here) The main worry is that they define the mission too narrowly, focusing on the Great Commission. At least on the more vehement side [...]
On this special edition of the White Horse Inn recorded before a live audience at the Desiring God conference in Minneapolis, the hosts continue their discussion of the marks and mission of the church, based on the words of the Great Commission, and also take questions from the audience.
HAPPY 528th BIRTHDAY MARTIN!! Martin Luther was born on November 10, 1483 in Eisleben, Germany. Who could have conceived of the work that the Lord would do through this child of Hans and Margarethe.

Turning to the Great Commission itself and various passages that unpack it, this special live edition of White Horse Inn, recorded at the Desiring God conference in Minneapolis, focuses on disciple-making through the marks of the church that Christ himself ordained.
Responding to Michael Horton’s review of his new book, The King Jesus Gospel, Professor Scot McKnight offered further remarks. So we recorded a White Horse Inn interview with Scot. It’s a good discussion for us to have and we’re grateful to Scot for keeping the conversation going. The full interview will be available to our
The Great AssuranceNovember / December 2011 We come to the final issue in our yearlong look at the Great Commission (Matt. 28), from the initial triumphant “Great Announcement” to the “Great Commandment.” Now, in this capstone issue, we come to Jesus’ climatic “Great Assurance”: “And lo, I will be with you even unto the end [...]
