This week I thought I’d share some of the podcasts (some individual mp3’s, others I subscribe to). Most of the podcasts I listen to are of preaching/teaching. As a preacher myself, it’s not often we get to sit and listen instead of stand and speak–yet I believe doing so is absolutely essential to our own spiritual health, and helps to keep us fresh in our own teaching. No teacher can be worth his salt if he think’s he’s arrived and/or self-sufficient in his studies. So, I’ve found podcasts a great resource in those times when I need to sit and listen and be taught, or need to just hear an encouraging, challenging (even rebuking) message from the Word of God. Here is a sample of what I have in my podcast list right now:
- Truth for Life by Alistair Begg…Mostly exegetical preaching, and always a catalyst for good study and thought.
- Keynotes and classes from the 2006 Tulsa International Soul Winning Workshop
- Sermons by Jeff Walling and others from the Providence Rd. Church of Christ
- Let My People Think by Ravi Zacharias (if they are still available for download, check out his series on “Secularization: Its Control and Power”)
- And…Christianity for Dummies: How to Become a Christian by Dan Smith at Momentum Church.
(By the way, all the above are available free through iTunes, where you can subscribe so they’ll be downloaded automatically.)
