Is evangelism dead? When was the last time you shared your faith? Let’s be honest, sharing your faith is often an awkward and challenging conversation. But here’s the good news: evangelism is the means by which Jesus promised to build his church, and Jesus will make good on his promises. Today guest host Ed Stetzer will talk to a father-son duo, both pastors and evangelist, who will share a biblical strategy for obeying Jesus and bringing new life to evangelism through which we will be able to see God bring new life to the lost all around us.
We live in a world where sexuality is ruined by sin, it's beauty obscured by our brokenness. But can we find a divine vision for the way love is supposed to be, the way God intended it to be? The answer is a resounding YES! Today guest host Ed Stetzer will talk to someone who will walk us through the biblical love poem, the Song of Songs (Song of Solomon). Along the way he will help us understand what the Bible says about God's design for love, intimacy and sex. He will also help us learn more about the One who has loved us with an everlasting love.
