Tuesday, January 05, 2010The Good and Beautiful God Host(s): Lynne Ford
Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

We all have ideas that we tell ourselves about God and how he works in our lives. Some are true, but many are false. James Bryan Smith believes those thoughts determine not only who we are, but how we live. In fact, Smith declares, the most important thing about a person is what they think about God. In "The Good and Beautiful God" (InterVarsity, ISBSN # 0-8308-3531-8), Smith invites you to put your ideas to the test to see if they match up with what Jesus himself reveals about God. Then he'll lead you through a process of spiritual formation that includes specific activities aimed at making these new narratives real in your body and soul as well as your mind.

Are you tired of fighting with your spouse? Do you have anger boiling inside of you that's coming between you and your spouse?

Join Char and Ted during Friday's encore Mid-Morning as they reveal that the core of anger is pain and how sharing that pain and practicing forgiveness can lead to deeper intimacy and a marriage that will go the distance. ("From Anger to Intimacy", Regal, ISBN# 978-0-8307-4676-7), original airdate 7/23/2009.

Why do we do what we do? Whether we date, breakup, marry, or divorce; apply; call, click, or consider; give, receive, exchange, buy, or sell, the answer to why we do what we do lies in what we value. Value answers the question, "Why?" because value connects belief with behavior. On today's WisdomWorks Mid-Morning, Dr. Mitchell Kruse explores what Jesus values: the kingdom of heaven-God's reign, rule, and order in the hearts and lives of people on this earth now and in the future-and discusses how Jesus transforms us to love and value what He does.
