WHI-976 | The Word Made Flesh

Christianity is the religion of a book, and this particular book contains a good deal of words to be read, reflected upon, and applied. But God’s word contains more than instructions on how we should all behave. Ultimately it points to a person, the Word of God made flesh, who descended from heaven in order to save the fallen race of mankind.

WHI-975 | The End of Secularism

Secularists have argued for many years that religion is an entirely private matter that should not inform public life and policy decisions. But what about secularism itself? Is it really a neutral position itself? On this edition of the White Horse Inn the hosts discuss these issues with Hunter Baker, author of The End of Secularism.

WHI-974 | What is Discipleship?

What does it mean to be a follower of Christ? Should Christians focus more on “being the church” rather than going to church?

WHI-973 | Christianity Confronts Islam

WHI-972 | The Preached Word

According to William Willimon, Christianity is kind of like a foreign language that one is not born with, but must be baptized into. Unfortunately, many preachers today are attempting to “translate” the faith into familiar and comfortable terms that people are used to, but the result, he argues, is that things get “lost in translation.” William Willimon, author of Peculiar Speech: Preaching to the Baptized, joins the panel on this edition of the White Horse Inn.

WHI-971 | Is Living Like Jesus Enough?

Some postmodern Christians have begun to argue that what we believe is not as important as what we do, and that Christianity is primarily about “living like Jesus.” But are good works enough? Don’t we have to believe something? On this edition of the program the host discuss this issue with Michael Wittmer, author of Don’t Stop Believing: Why Living Like Jesus is Not Enough.

WHI-968 | Applying God’s Law

Is the Bible merely a manual of timeless ethics? If so, what do we do with the various civil and ceremonial laws from the Old Testament? Are we, like Israel of old, called to cleanse the land of idolatry by a kind of holy war? How should we interpret and apply texts of this kind? These questions and more will be addressed on this edition of the White Horse Inn.
