WHI-1187 | The Gospel According to Joshua

The Gospel According to Joshua

Moses is a tragic hero. Though he was called by God to lead the Children of Israel out of their slavery and bondage in Egypt, he was, nevertheless, forbidden to enter the Promised Land. After his death, a servant by the name of Joshua (which means YHWH saves) was called to lead his people across the Jordan into the land of Canaan. How do these events point forward to the deliverance provided by Jesus Christ, the greater Joshua? We will discuss this and many other questions as they introduce their new series: The Gospel According to Joshua.

White Horse Inn Weekend Special Offer

When we launched our first family event in 2012 with a cruise to the Caribbean, we weren’t just looking for an opportunity for Dad Rod to do the Lambada on the Lido deck. We wanted an extended opportunity to connect with our partners—the people at the core of our mission to help people “know what they believe and why they believe it.” Our partners are our biggest cheerleaders, most faithful financial supporters, and reformers in their own right—sharing the resources of the White Horse Inn in their own circles. Last year, we were pleased to gather our partners together once again in sunny San Diego for two days of learning and fellowship at the White Horse Inn Weekend. This year, we’re excited for our time together in Vail, Colorado. Each of these events are designed for our partners, so we’re offering a special discount to NEW partners for a limited time.

Starting today, any NEW Reformer partner to the White Horse Inn will get one free registration to our White Horse Inn Weekend in Vail. The registration covers the conference fees and hosted meals during the Weekend. Transportation and lodging are not included. To qualify for the free registration, you must be a NEW Reformer partner (or lapsed partner of more than one year) and pay your partnership in full via credit card.

To access this registration option, go to the Weekend registration page and enter “reformer” where it asks for a promotional code. Then choose “Reformer Special” as your registration option and follow the directions to complete your purchase.

We hope that you take advantage of this amazing deal and join with other Reformation minded friends from around the world this summer in Vail, Colorado as we equip you to defend the unique claims of Christianity in a pluralistic culture.

Defend the Faith – “How can anyone know about life after death?”

Michael Horton recently sat down and answered five of the most common apologetics questions people get when they share their faith with their friends and family. We’ll be posting one each week through the end of the year.

WHI-1186 | Top Ten Rules of Interpretation (Part 2)

Top Ten Rules of Interpretation (Part 2)

Many of us have memorized Bible verses, but we often remain ignorant of the larger context from which these verses originate. We often lose the forest for the trees. We’ve all heard interpretations of Scripture that reduce the meaning of a text to a kind of spiritual allegory. What are the problems with these ways of interacting with Scripture? We will address these issues and more as we conclude our discussion of the top ten rules of proper biblical interpretation.

WHI-1185 | Top Ten Rules of Interpretation (Part 1)

What’s wrong with thinking of the Bible as a self-help book, and why do so many Christians seem to approach the Scriptures this way? Why is it wrong to think of the Bible as a book of ethics and morality tales? What are some common mistakes that people make when interpreting Scripture?

Who’s Who at the 2014 White Horse Inn Weekend

One of the most exciting things about our 2014 White Horse Inn Weekend is our special guest speakers who literally come to us from around the world! In addition to Mike, Rod, Kim, and Ken—our regular “cast of characters” from the White Horse Inn—we’re pleased to welcome Greg Koukl, Isaac Shaw, and Hicham Chehab. We hope that these brief introductions to our special guests encourage you to register to attend before the end of the early bird promotional rate on January 31, 2014.

 

Greg Koukl is the host of the syndicated radio program, Stand to Reason. He’s a frequent guest on the White Horse Inn, and we’re proud to work with him in the important areas of apologetics and Christian witness. He’s been featured on many secular and religious news outlets across the country, especially when important religious and ethical issues are at stake. His most recent book, Tactics, is the kind of hands-on guide that Christians need to discuss their faith in the public square. Greg has lectured around the world, and we’re honored to have him join us. His keynote address on Thursday night, “Is God a Religious Pluralist?,” will demonstrate the kind of careful thinking and engaging presentation that has made Greg a trusted voice on issues of Christian theology and apologetics.

  • Thursday night keynote dinner address
  • Friday morning panel discussion

 

Isaac Shaw is a busy man! He is both the executive director of the New Delhi Bible Institute and the senior pastor of the Bible Bhavan Christian Fellowship churches—a family of churches across North India. Isaac is responsible for giving leadership to many young pastors, missionaries, and evangelists who are taking the gospel into areas of North India dominated by Hinduism and Islam. He has overseen the establishment of more than seventy churches. We’re blessed to have a man like Isaac who is serving on the front lines of the Kingdom’s expansion to teach us how to engage our unbelieving family and friends with the unique message of the Christian faith. His keynote address on Friday night, “The False Hope of Hinduism,” will introduce many of us to one of the fastest growing religions in the world.

  • Friday night keynote dinner address
  • Saturday morning seminar
  • Saturday afternoon panel discussion

 

Hicham Chehab’s story of his conversion to Christ is an exciting account of God’s faithfulness in the midst of great conflict. Hicham grew up in Lebanon during that country’s bloody civil war. Raised in a Muslim family and drawn to some of the extremist groups that fought during the war, Hicham’s world was turned upside down when a Christian killed his brother. By the grace of God, Hicham was saved from both his rage and his sin and became a pastor in the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. He immigrated to the United States where he now serves as a missionary to Muslim immigrants across the Midwest. His seminar on Saturday morning, “The Mission Field Next Door,” will equip you to understand and witness to your Muslim neighbors and friends.

WHI-1184 | Understanding & Interpreting Scripture

The Bible isn’t actually a single book, but rather a library of sixty-six different texts, each with its own set of interpretive rules. Some of these books are historical narratives, while others are poetry or wisdom literature, and others are doctrinal expositions. How can we be sensitive to these different genres as we prepare to read and interpret the “library” of Scripture? That’s our topic as we continue the series, How to Read Your Bible.
