And on this episode in particular, they walk through messianic prophecies from the Pentateuch through the writings of the prophets.

WHI-1078 | The Messiah (Part 1)

For the past year, White Horse Inn hosts have been exploring the theme of The Great Commission, and throughout this series they’ve not only focused on Jesus’ command to “go and make disciples of all nations,” but also on the importance of understanding the message that is to be taken. And that message is not about us, our transformation, or self-improvement program, but rather about Christ and his mission of redemption. In this program, the hosts will begin a four-part series exploring this theme of Christ’s messianic mission as it unfolds throughout the Old Testament Scriptures.

WHI-1077 | Repentance & Personal Transformation

On the previous edition of White Horse Inn, the hosts discussed the problems associated with a “try it, you’ll like it” approach to the Christian faith. But does the Christian faith make a practical difference in a person’s life? Should converts to Christianity expect to experience real transformation? How should we think about remaining sin? Will Christians continue to struggle with habitual sins, or is that possibly a sign that they are not really true believers? The hosts tackle these questions and more on this edition of the program (originally aired June 22, 2008).

WHI-1076 | The Gospel of Pragmatism

Why do so many contemporary churches or best-selling Christian books focus almost exclusively on practical application rather than doctrinal truth? Why do most Christians prefer to talk about their own testimonies or changed lives, rather than arguing for the truth of the Christian faith? On this edition of White Horse Inn, the hosts take a look at the philosophy of pragmatism and its effects on contemporary Christian thought and practice (originally aired June 15, 2008).

WHI-1074 | Making Disciples: The Mission & Its Methods (Part 1)

Many churches in our day put a lot of emphasis on “being the church” or living missionally. Other churches focus on the worship experience, spiritual formation, or the pursuit of various social and political agendas. What is the mission of the church? How are we to make disciples of Jesus Christ? 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.

WHI-1073 | Should We Reform or Abandon American Protestantism?

Have you grown impatient with your church’s seemingly endless quest for being hip and relevant? Have you become weary of “meaningful worship services” that say more about radio dial preferences than biblical fidelity? Are you irritated by the constant flow of shallow, superficial, and even narcissistic books that stock the shelves of evangelical bookstores? On this program, Michael Horton talks about these issues and more with Notre Dame sociologist Christian Smith who describes his conversion to Roman Catholicism in his recent book, How to Go from Being a Good Evangelical to a Committed Catholic in 95 Difficult Steps. Mike also talks with Christian about his other new book, Lost in Transition.

On this program, Michael Horton discusses these questions with Fikret Böchek, who recounts his fascinating conversion from Islam and his current ministry among Muslims in Smyrna, Turkey.
