WHI-1201 | Dealing with Death

If you really want to kill a conversation, just start talking about death and dying. But is it really wise to avoid this important subject? Christians in our time appear to be doing this, particularly as they emphasize Christian living and having our best life now. So how should we think about death? Is it okay to mourn during a funeral, or should we consider it a celebration of life? That’s the focus of this edition of White Horse Inn (original air date: Feb. 6, 2005).

WHI-1199 | God Where Are You?

On this program I’ll speak with Benjamin Kisoni, a political refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo. War in that country robbed his family of everything they possessed, and he was eventually forced into exile here in the United States. I’ll talk to Benjamin about his various trials and the experiences which he describes in his recent book, God, Where Are You?

WHI-1198 | Why Suffering?

After surveying the book of Job and especially its message on suffering, we’ll continue our series on Suffering & the Christian Life by tackling some of the tough questions that come up with this topic. Should we see suffering as a form of divine punishment? Is God trying to teach us something? If God really loves us, why does he allow us to experience so much pain and difficulty? Those are the crucial questions we’ll deal with on this edition of White Horse Inn.

WHI-1197 | The Book of Job, Part 3

On this program, we’ll wrap up our three-part series through the book of Job by looking at that wonderful expression of faith in which Job declares, “I know that my redeemer lives.” How does this hope in the future redeeming work of the Messiah comfort Job during his distress? How can a recovery of this Christ-centered focus help us when we suffer? We’ll consider questions like this as we conclude our miniseries on Job.

WHI-1196 | The Book of Job, Part 2

Continuing the overview of Job, we’ll consider the various claims to health, wealth, and happiness made by Job’s counselors. What’s wrong with this approach and how should this influence the way we think about suffering in the Christian life? How do we deal with the fact that there is so much pain and misery in the world-and perhaps even in our own lives? What happens to our faith when having “our best life now” seems to elude us at every turn?
