Wholeheartedness - Dr. Chuck DeGroat (Re-Air)

Aired On: Monday December 26, 2016

Here's a tough pill to swallow: Underneath all your busyness and exhaustion is the fear that you're too fatally flawed to pull it all off. The toxin of shame drives you to prove to yourself and the world that you have what it takes. Then, frenzied and pulled in a thousand different directions, you look for rest and peace in all the wrong places. Sorry, but your new time management app ain't gonna fix that mess. You need wholeheartedness. Join Dr. Chuck DeGroat on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of his book ...

Because of Bethlehem - Max Lucado

Aired On: Monday December 19, 2016

His love for us compelled him to become one of us, and now we have a sympathetic King on the throne in heaven. Join Max Lucado on this special Christmas edition of Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of his new book, Because of Bethlehem: Love Is Born, Hope Is Here. He just might get you to love Christmas as much as he does.

The New Activist - Eddie Kaufholz

Aired On: Monday December 12, 2016

It's never been easier to end up overwhelmed by all the injustice in the world. Just scrolling through the news feeds on our phones can leave us both stirred to action and simultaneously discouraged that our little bit will make any difference in the face of so much evil and suffering. But there are effective and fulfilling ways to move from observer to activist. Join Eddie Kaufholz from the International Justice Mission podcast, The New Activist, on Steve Brown, Etc. for a fun conversation about inspiring action that changes lives. Eddie...

A Mirror Dimly - Zach Bolen

Aired On: Monday December 5, 2016

When trusted spiritual leaders fall, when we watch the innocent suffer, when death hits home... hard questions often give way to doubt.

You'll hear that doubt is a normal part of faith and how God's unconditional love frees us to struggle honestly without fear of slipping into the darkness. Visit...

Life with a Capital L - Matt Heard

Aired On: Monday November 28, 2016

Religion will make you weird (or worse). That's why, when you think about being godly, it's good to remember that God's big idea was to become human. Join Matt Heard on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of his new book, Life with a Capital L: Embracing Your God-Given Humanity. Hear that Jesus didn't come to show us how to deny our humanity, but rather celebrate it! If you're sick of merely existing, this one will help you live life to the full. Matt Heard was the senior pastor at Woodmen Valley Chapel for twelve years....

Home - Elyse Fitzpatrick (Re-Air)

Aired On: Monday November 21, 2016

When people think of heaven, they often picture a place "up there" with polished halos, fat, winged babies with harps, and lots of cloud-pavement. What if, instead, heaven will be on earth, but better? Join Elyse Fitzpatrick on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of her new book Home: How Heaven and the New Earth Satisfy Our Deepest Longings.  Elyse holds an M.A. in Biblical Counseling from Trinity Theological Seminary.

The New Believer’s Guide - Alex Early

Aired On: Monday November 14, 2016

If you could go back in time to when you first became a Christian and impart some wisdom to yourself, what would it be? Maybe you'd advise against wearing that "turn or burn" T-shirt with the Energizer Bunny on it. You could comfort your zealous young self who just threw away his entire collection of secular CDs with the knowledge that one day God would send Spotify to make things right. Just think of all the pain that could be avoided. Join Alex Early on Steve Brown, Etc., because until we invent time travel, the next...
