Dr. Richard Trucks: “Making Wise Investments With Your Life” (1 Thessalonians 2:1-8)

June 27, 2017

This message, “Making Wise Investments With Your Life”, by Dr. Richard Trucks of Third Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, contrasts investing our finances with investing ourselves.  How should we invest our lives?  This is not a bad message for anyone pondering such questions.

The Rev. Coty Pinckney: “Faith and Suffering” (Genesis 39-40)

June 25, 2017

Here is the next in a good series of audio sermons on the Book of Genesis from the Rev. Coty Pinckney of Desiring God Community Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. Its title is Faith and Suffering and it is based on Genesis 39-40. (The sermon text can be read here.) This message starts out by asking a very applicable question for us now: “Is God with you when you suffer for, apparently, no good reason?”

From The Eric Metaxas Show: J. Warner Wallace on “Forensic Faith”

June 24, 2017

If you are interested in apologetics, you will like this interview by Eric Metaxas of J. Warner Wallace on his book Forensic Faith: A Homicide Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith.  Both interviewer and interviewee are first-rate minds and Wallace is quite a defender of the Christian faith.

From Church Society: the Rev. Dr. Peter Adam on “Thomas Cranmer: Evangelising the Nation (ii)”

June 23, 2017

This is the second installment of Dr. Peter Adam’s message on “Thomas Cranmer: Evangelising the Nation” that was presented at the 2017 Church Society Conference.  Ros Clarke writes for Church Society here that “If the Bible was at the centre of Cranmer’s evangelisation strategy for the nation, how should we learn from this in our contemporary context? Peter Adam considers what this will mean and challenges us with important gospel and practical lessons from Cranmer’s life and work, not least his faithfulness and endurance in the face of suffering.”

From Church Society: the Rev. Dr. Peter Adam on “Thomas Cranmer: Evangelising the Nation (i)”

June 22, 2017

This may turn out to be “Thomas Cranmer Week” as Church Society has posted two excellent presentations by Peter Adam on Thomas Cranmer: Evangelising the Nation.  These messages were given at the 2017 Church Society Conference and in the first one, Dr. Adam “described the various ways in which England had been evangelised prior to the Reformation, and then detailed Cranmer’s strategy. Through the lectionary, ordinary people could hear large sections of Scripture read aloud, in their own language, day by day. By getting the Bible into the ears – and thus the minds and hearts – of people, Cranmer sought to win them for Christ.”  Very much worth a listen.

June 21, 2017

Today I came across a pleasant surprise: an interview of none other than the Rev. Dr. Ashley Null on The Eric Metaxas Show!  The topic of this interview is Thomas Cranmer, and I think you will enjoy it.

From GoThereFor.com: Tony Payne on “What is a disciple and what is disciple-making?”

June 19, 2017

Quite often we need to be reminded of what it is to be disciples, and what it is to make disciples.  Here is a presentation by Tony Payne, co-author of The Vine Project, on this topic, at GoThereFor.com (click on the link).  Churches might find The Vine Project to be something very beneficial to their mission.

The Rev. Vaughan Roberts: “Knowing God” (1 John 2:3-11)

June 18, 2017

From St. Ebbe’s Church in Oxford, here is an audio sermon by the Rev. Vaughan Roberts titled Knowing God.  This is the next in a series on the First Epistle of John that is called “Walking in the Light”.  What an apt title for this series, and anything by Vaughan Roberts is well worth hearing.

Mark Steyn on “The Seduction of Violence”

June 17, 2017

This seems to be a prescient video from Mark Steyn, because it was taped hours before the Washington baseball field shootings in which Congressman Steve Scalise and others were injured.  In “The Seduction of Violence“, Mark looks at recent examples of political violence, and the left’s preference not for winning the debate but for shutting down the debate – by any means necessary.

The Rev. Coty Pinckney: “In the World But Not Of the World” (Genesis 38)

June 15, 2017

Here is the next in a good series of audio sermons on the Book of Genesis from the Rev. Coty Pinckney of Desiring God Community Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. Its title is In the World But Not Of the World and it is based on Genesis 38. (The sermon text can be read here.) This message starts out by asking a very applicable question for us now: “How should Christians relate to a non-Christian culture?”
