“The Boys Are Back In Town”

My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. That Christ-centered Cross-focused talk radio show, Issues, Etc.™, is back.

The first hour of the first show on June 30th was spent with Host Todd Wilken and Producer Jeff Schwarz reminiscing about their three month “spring break.” Pastor Wilken noted that he lost twenty pounds, started finishing his basement, and adopted a cat and subsequent kittens. There were plenty of “thanks” to go around to all of those people who supported Jeff and Todd during their hiatus.

There were several humorous moments, including a sound bite of Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous statement “Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty we are free at last,” as well as Margaritaville music with the voice over “We’re not funded by LCMS Inc. You’re listening to Issues, Etc.™”

The second hour was vintage Issues, Etc.™, featuring John Green of the Pew Forum discussing religion and politics and Dr. Carl Fickenscher of Concordia Theological Seminary discussing the Gospel versus the inspiring and helping Gospel of Evangelicalism.

Both hours of the show are available on the Issues, Etc.™ website.

This week’s upcoming shows:

Tuesday: Greg Koukl on relativism
Wednesday: Dr. Paul Maier on the historicity of Christianity
Thursday: Dr. John Warwick Montgomery on Islam

The initial guest list is good, in that it is normal. I'm most pleased to see Drs. Fickenscher & Maier, though, as they are both officially part of "LCMS, Inc." -- Maier in particular, being Synod's 2nd VP, is a nice political gesture/olive branch.
