WHI-1179 | The Bible’s History Books

If the Five Books of Moses can be summarized as Israel’s constitution, how are we to think about the history books that follow? What is the meaning and purpose of the book of Joshua or Judges? How are the genealogies or battle scenes of the ancient Israelites relevant for Christians living today? Questions like these are important as we think about correctly interpreting and faithfully applying the Bible in contemporary life.

WHI-1178 | How To Read Your Bible

How to Read Your Bible

What is the Bible all about, and how can a person read it correctly? Why are there so many different books in Scripture, and how do they relate to one another? On this episode of White Horse Inn, we introduce our new series: How to Read Your Bible. Instead of a more general approach, we’ll actually dive into the biblical text by introducing and summarizing the Pentateuch. What is the purpose and message of these five books? What was God’s promise to Abraham, and how did it differ from the covenant made at Mt. Sinai? We’ll look at these questions and more as we kick off our new series.

WHI-1177 | God in the Gallery

What is art and how does it relate to the world of theology and worldview? How is art different from entertainment? Is there a distinctively Christian approach to the arts? How should we think about modern art, in particular? On this program, Mike Horton discusses these questions with art historian Dan Siedell, author of God in the Gallery: A Christian Embrace of Modern Art.

WHI-1176 | What is a True Church?

What is a True Church?

How can you tell a true church from a false one? What are the distinguishing characteristics of a properly organized church body? How do the answers to these questions differ in Protestant, Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox circles? On this edition of the program, we examine the substance of true faith and practice, specifically taking a look at the marks of a true church. (Originally broadcast Oct. 26, 2008.)

WHI-1175 | God’s Story vs. Our Stories

When sharing the faith with others, should we primarily focus on what happened to Christ, or what happened to us? In other words, should we focus on the gospel of Christ as we find it unpacked in the New Testament, or should we emphasize our personal testimonies, explaining to others what God has done in our own lives? We put this question to a number of attendees at a Christian convention, and you might be surprised by their answers. (Originally broadcast June 14, 2009.)

WHI-1174 | Lessons from Church History

Why is it important to study church history? Is it possible to avoid the mistakes of the past, or does every generation bring a certain amount of cultural baggage to the sacred text? How did the early church resolve the question of Jesus’ divine nature? What was Constantine’s role in the rise of Christianity in the West? What were the main arguments of the Protestant Reformation? In this program, W. Robert Godfrey, President and Professor of Church History at Westminster Seminary California, joins Mike Horton to discuss these important issues.

WHI-1173 | Ordinary Life and Vocation

WHI-1172 | The God of the Ordinary

There seems to be a false choice today in many quarters between a secular naturalism and hyper-supernaturalism. Conceived this way, either nothing is miraculous, or everything is. But in either case, God’s ordinary providence gets sidelined and ignored. That’s what’s on tap for this program as we begin to wrap up our month-long series, Ordinary.

WHI-1171 | Extraordinary Gifts Through Ordinary Means

It is wonderful when thoughtful believers take initiative to learn what they believe and why they believe it. But this shouldn’t be something that can only be obtained through a spectacular conference experience or through the ideas of best selling book. Every church should be a garden, and every minister is called to water and tend each plant under his care, so that we’re all nourished by Christ, the life-giving vine.

WHI-1170 | Ordinary Excellence

Some may argue that the call to recover “ordinary discipleship” is simply a call to mediocrity and low expectations. But as we’ll discuss in this program, ordinary discipleship is actually a higher quality form of discipleship that’s sustainable over the long haul, one that doesn’t give up easily when immediate results are unseen. On this program, we’re in part two of our month-long series, Ordinary.
