Mike Bullmore on 2 Chronicles (Re-release
On this episode, Nancy Guthrie talked with Mike Bullmore about what may be one of the least-studied books in the Bible. The book of 2 Chronicles is rich in story and encouragement to trust God to be faithful to his promises. Bullmore is senior pastor of CrossWay Community Church in Bristol, Wisconsin, and author of _The Gospel and Scripture: How to Read the Bible_ (Crossway, 2011). Topics include: * Why study 2 Chronicles? * How do we prepare people to understand the two histories of 2 Chronicles? * What is the purpose of 2 Chronicles? * What is the difference between 1–2 Kings and 1–2 Chronicles? * What is the divine promise 1–2 Chronicles is arguing God will be faithful to? * What is the angst of the situation in Judah? * How does the chronicler’s record of Solomon reveal his purpose in writing? * How does the theme of temple run throughout this book, and, in fact, through the whole Bible? * How is Christ anticipated in 2 Chronicles? * How should teachers bring content from the prophets into teaching 2 Chronicles? * What kind of moral instruction is in 2 Chronicles? * How do we teach 2 Chronicles 7:14 rightly?

Did Rush Limbaugh Reshape Christian Radio, Too?
Transcribed highlights of the show can be found in our episode summaries. Last week, conservative talk radio personality Rush Limbaugh died at age 70. Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated political show first hit the airwaves in the late 1980s. He was beloved by many who shared or later adopted his political views and his penchant for conspiracy theories. Many of his critics, however, pointed out his cruel and crass remarks. Limbaugh’s legacy was hardly limited to politics. In a tribute to him, one Christian leader wrote for USA Today, that “ Christian talk programs in particular wouldn't even exist today were it not for Limbaugh's success. Christian radio would still be limited to sermons and songs. But instead, radio stations realized the benefit of capturing even a slice of Limbaugh's audience share and offered new hosts and new voices opportunities to join a new, more democratic discussion of the issues.” Mark Ward Sr. is associate professor of communication at the University of Houston-Victoria in Victoria, Texas. His books include The Electronic Church in the Digital Age, Air of Salvation: The Story of Christian Broadcasting, and The Lord’s Radio: Gospel Music Broadcasting and the Making of Evangelical Culture. Ward joined global media manager Morgan Lee and editorial director Ted Olsen on Quick to Listen to discuss Limbaugh’s impact on Christian radio, how Christian radio differs from Christian TV, and how the medium does or not does not make the message What is Quick to Listen?

Scripture: Ecclesiastes 3, Luke 13:1-9, Psalm 132 Writers: Mike Kresnik, Bob Thune, Darby Whealy, Tyler Anderson Narrators: Charlotte Bertrand, Gary Nebeker, Bob Thune, Darby Whealy, Kevin Huddleston Music: Dan Phelps and William Ryan Fitch Production: Mike Kresnik, Bethany Gilbert Sources: The Worship Sourcebook; The Valley of Vision; The Book of Common Prayer; + original contributions by the authors. OPENING PRAYER O Lord, you have searched me and known me. You know my thoughts before I think them. You know my words before I speak them. You know my past, my present, and my future. Awaken me now, to seek you while you may be found, to call upon you while you are near, and to live a life that brings glory to your name. CONFESSION OF SIN & PRAYER FOR GRACE Heavenly Father, I enter this day full of thanksgiving, because you have redeemed my life by your mercy and grace. I worship you for such a great salvation even as I come to you in repentance. Hear my confession, Father. Forgive me for under-believing your gospel and over-believing my worries. Forgive me for being slow to listen and quick to judgement. Forgive me for failing to love you and your church. Have mercy on me, Lord, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.  OT READING: Ecclesiastes 3 THE LORD’S PRAYER NT READING: Luke 13:1-9 PRAYER OF ADORATION: Sovereign God: I worship you for the justice of your judgment. You will not let the guilty go unpunished; yet you are patient, desiring that all should come to repentance. Thank you that your wrath is not arbitrary or random but is rooted in your eternal, unchanging goodness. PSALM READING:  Psalm 132 PRAYER OF CONSECRATION O God: this Psalm celebrates your covenant promises to David. You told him, “One of the sons of your body I will set on your throne.” And I know that Jesus, the Son of David, inherits this promise and fulfills this Psalm. So today, I renew my submission to King Jesus, the one who has been crowned Lord of all. I confess that sometimes my obedience can be slothful, weak, and half-hearted. But as I hear this Psalm, I am inspired by David’s zeal for your house. He promised not to give rest to his eyes until he established Zion as your dwelling place. Likewise, let me be resolute in my devotion to you today. Help me diligently offer You my full and complete obedience, rejoicing in your rule and reign and purposing to serve you wholeheartedly in whatever comes my way. BENEDICTION And now may the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and always, until the day of Christ's return.
