By Julianna Keck

May 4, 2018

In every generation, God has raised up voices to lead people back to Him and strengthen faith in men and women around the world. On May 1, 2018, Baylor University released its 2018 list of the 12 most "effective" preachers in the English-speaking world—an honor that’s been regarded as one of the most prestigious in the preaching profession since Baylor released the last such list in 1996. We join the chorus of congratulations for the 12 recipients, who were chosen by a board of 179 scholars from 1,000 nominees. And we’d like to pay special tribute to Alistair Begg of Truth for Life, Chuck Swindoll of Insight for Living, and the late Haddon Robinson, former host of Discover the Word.

By Julianna Keck

April 17, 2018

From politics to personal relationships, it seems like people are more divided than ever before. Even in the church! This week on Discover the Word, Mart DeHaan, Bill Crowder, Elisa Morgan and special guest, Daniel Ryan Day, embark upon a two-week study in the book of Romans called “Can’t We All Just Get Along?” Join the team in the 4th chair around the table and learn that division—even in the church—is nothing new.

Who Is Your Neighbor?

By Julianna Keck

Feb. 5, 2018

Life is busy! We’ve got places to go, people to see, and things to do. Living in a culture that extols efficiency and productivity does nothing to help our inability to slow down. And in the hustle and bustle, it’s easy to see someone in need … and just keep moving. From February 5th-16th, the Discover the Word team will be tackling this matter head on, in a two-week study of the well-known parable, The Good Samaritan. Watch the series promo video below: The team suggests that when Jesus talked about being someone’s neighbor, He wasn’t just referring to the people who live next door. Instead, Jesus’ words in Luke chapter 12 open our eyes and hearts to the needs of the hand-chosen people God ... Read More
