Yesterday evening, I had the opportunity to talk with Pastor Kevin Boling, talk show host of Calling for Truth, about tomorrow’s radio show in which we will be talking about the 2008 Puritan Reading Challenge and more importantly Richard Sibbes’ The Bruised Reed. What is exciting is not only that Kevin in on the challenge, but he has encouraged folks in his church to join as well – even purchasing a set for the library for folks to check out and read if they cannot purchase them for themselves. How cool is that?!
I know that many of you will either be in school or tied up at work, but if you have the opportunity, I want to encourage you to listen in. More than that, I want to ask you to join me in discussing The Bruised Reed by calling in and sharing your thoughts and questions.
Here’s the deal. It is a live radio broadcast from 1:00-2:00 p.m. EST, and you can listen two ways:
The toll-free number to call in is 1.888.660.9535, and if the lines are busy just call back (they might be full). It would be great to have as many of you on the show as possible as I am sure there is much more to be said and discussed than I could bring to the table. Plus, I would much rather listen and hear from others than be on the mic. 🙂
In the days ahead, I will put together a summary post of all the stuff I have written on Richard Sibbes, and included in that post will be the MP3 of the Calling for Truth radio show that can be downloaded for your keeps. I am excited and grateful for Calling for Truth for giving us the opportunity to spread the word about the Puritan Reading Challenge, but more importantly, for helping amplify the importance of knowing our Savior, His gospel, and the church through our faithful guides from the 17th century.
So don’t forget! Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. EST. Hope to see you there!
