The Bible is far more than “The Good Book.” It is the inspired, inerrant, holy Word of God, revealed by God to its scribes. And it is the way the Creator of the Universe teaches us even today. From the history of the Old Testament to the gospel and theology of the New Testament, the Bible is our lifeline to the God we serve. If you’re curious how to study and use the Bible…or ways you might have taken the Bible out of context to control your life, the lives of others, or even God, don’t miss Lynne’s conversation with Mitch Kruse. And if you have a question for Mitch, you can ask during the second half of the show!

Many of these people, and the family and friends who love them, are sitting in churches week after week, suffering in stigmatized silence. Amy Simpson, author of Troubled Minds (IVP, ISBN# 978-0-8308-4304-6) and Kathy Bayes from the Fort Wayne NAMI chapter join Lynne to speak the truth about mental illness and offer hope and love to those facing it!
