“As our team gathers around the table with our coffee mugs filled each day, we welcome you to take a seat in the empty chair awaiting you. Maybe your chair is at your kitchen table, or in your car, or maybe it's in your family room. Whatever the case, please join us for the daily discussion.”
Discover the Word is a daily, 15-minute radio program that features conversational Bible studies with Mart DeHaan, Elisa Morgan, and Bill Crowder.
In 1980, Radio Bible Class Daily began broadcasting messages from teachers Richard De Haan, Paul Van Gorder, and Our Daily Bread Ministries Founder Dr. M. R. DeHaan. From time to time, a panel of Our Daily Bread Ministries staff members and guests was assembled to discuss important topics. These “Friday panel discussions” were quite popular, prompting the move to an exclusively topical discussion format with hosts Herb Vander Lugt, Jim Pittman, Ron Chadwick, and Mart DeHaan. In 1991, Haddon Robinson and Alice Mathews joined Mart DeHaan.
In 1998, the program changed its name to Discover the Word. These daily, expositional Bible studies are designed to involve the listener in insightful conversations about relevant, biblically based subjects. Over the years, the trio developed an inviting style of discussion, using creative and varied teaching methods to help listeners apply Scripture to their daily lives.
Today, a new ministry team carries on the tradition established by Haddon, Alice, and Mart. The newest members include popular author, speaker and radio personality Elisa Morgan. Joining Elisa is Bill Crowder, a veteran writer and broadcast contributor for Our Daily Bread Ministries. Mart DeHaan and co-host Brian Hettinga continue with the new team.
