Know what you believe and why you believe it

WHI-957 | Deep Church

What is the Emerging Church movement all about? Are some of its concerns with the traditional church legitimate, or does it sometimes go too far? On this edition of the White Horse Inn, Michael Horton talks with Jim Belcher, a person who has been intimately involved with the Emerging movement since its inception. Jim’s new book on this subject is titled, Deep Church: A Third Way Beyond Emerging and Traditional.

A New Site

Welcome to the new White Horse Inn website. We’ve created this site to make our resources easier to find and easier to use. Thousands of people from over ninety countries regularly visit White Horse Inn and Modern Reformation. We hope this reconfigured site makes it easier for you to find the tools to help you “know what you believe and why you believe it.”

Where should you start? Our First Time Visitors tab has a number of streaming WHI shows and articles that will get you up to speed. Our FAQ tab can answer some of your basic questions. But feel free to drop us a line if you need to know something more specific.

Whether  you’re a long-time friend of the Inn or a newcomer, we’d also invite you to consider donating to the cause. Although the economy is making things difficult for a number of nonprofits these days, we’re happy to report that our supporters are behind the mission of White Horse Inn and we’re poised for growth (this new facelift to our website is just the first of many improvements in the works). Your donation to White Horse Inn won’t just keep our lights on, it will help spread the message of the Reformation–a message we think is necessary for the church to recover her witness and work in this in-between age.

Is Narcissism on the rise? And if so, has it affected American Christianity? On this edition of the White Horse Inn, Michael Horton talks with Dr. Jean Twenge, author of Generation Me, and co-author of The Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement.

WHI-955 | Boredom & Entertainment

Compared with an action-packed movie, most people would probably characterize the ministry of word and sacrament as “boring.” So in order to reach out, should churches make their services more entertaining? Joining the panel for this discussion is Richard Winter, author of Still Bored in a Culture of Entertainment.

WHI-950 | Is Christianity The One True Religion?

Is it true that there are many paths to God or is Christianity the one true religion? If Christianity is exclusively true, does this mean that other religions are 100% false? Also, what about those who have never heard the Christian gospel? Joining the panel to discuss some of these questions is Dr. John Stackhouse, professor of Theology and Culture at Regent College in Vancouver, BC.
