Hour 1: Are The Unchurched Unreachable?

Many bemoan the decline of the church. We hear a steady stream of reports about how people, especially younger generations, are abandoning Christianity. But new research shows that unchurched Americans are surprisingly more receptive and open to the Christian faith than is commonly assumed. Today guest host Ed Stetzer will talk with someone who will unveil the findings of the Billy Graham Center Institute's groundbreaking study of 2000 unchurched people across the country. Are "nones" and millennials really as closed off to the gospel as we are made to believe? Can churches and organizations be transformed into places where conversion growth becomes the new normal? Believe it or not you could be the change agent that God uses to reach the so called "unreachable" in your life.

Hour 2: Seeing History with New Eyes

Many people think of history as merely "the past"—or at most, information about the past. But the real work of a historian is to listen to the voices of those who have gone before and humbly remember the flesh and blood on the other side of the evidence. What is their story? How does it become part of our own? Today guest host Ed Stetzer with talk with someone who offers a concise, clear, and beautifully written introduction to the study of history. Through concrete examples and insightful principles he will demonstrate how the study of history, faithfully pursued, can shape your heart as well as your mind.
