Radio / Podcasts – Podcasts are audio files you download to your iPod or other mp3 player.  They download automatically each day.  You can also listen to these shows online at your convenience.

  • OnePlace.com – dozens of great radio shows you can listen to online or download
  • Stand to Reason – I highly recommend the daily podcasts and the weekly show.  Greg Koukl has a great approach to Christian thinking and sharing the Gospel in a productive way.
  • Walk in the Word  – I listen to James MacDonald’s sermons almost every day. 
  • Family Life Today – great Biblically based show to help you be the best parent / spouse you can.
  • Focus on the Family – – great Biblically based show to help you be the best parent / spouse you can.
  • Grace to You – John MacArthur
  • Bible Answer Man

Apologetics (a defense of the Christian faith)

Charities

  • World Vision  A highly efficient and effective charity, they minister to people’s physical and spiritual needs all over the world. 
  • CareNet Pregnancy Center of NW Houston (where I volunteer as a counselor and Board member)
  • Animal Therapy – No, our animals don’t get therapy (although they could use it!).  We take the dogs to Heartland Nursing home.  The residents love to see the dogs, and it makes a great ice-breaker for us and the girls to visit with them. 
  • Faith Comes By Hearing – You can get the audio Bible in many versions and types – CD, cassette or MP3.  The prices are reasonable and it helps support getting audio Bibles to poor and illiterate people around the world. 
  • Prison Fellowship – Exhorting, equipping, & assisting the Church in its ministry to prisoners, ex-prisoners, & their families.  Their in-prison programs dramatically reduce recidivism (criminals who return to jail).
  • Angel Tree – Bringing the love of Christ to prisoners’ kids across America

  1. cool blog…it certainly blessed me…

  2. Thanks, Martin – I really like your blog!

  3. I wanted to let you know of an amazing Bible Study Resource I use that you should consider adding to your resources and links. It has huge library of tools such as commentaries, 29 translations, devotionals, lexicons, maps, e-books, etc. Bible Study Tools at Christianity.com not only has an amazing set of tools, but you can also highlight text, save your own notes, use a split screen panel so you can see two translations, a translation and a commentary, etc. Definitely check it out!

  4. excellent blog, take a look at mine http://www.thebookofisaiah.com

  5. Hi there, I just wanted to chip in with another resource that I think could be very helpful to those looking to read The Bible. At http://www.dailyreader.net we’ve recently finished adding The New Testament. The way dailyreader works is that you decide on how long you want to read and what days you want to read on, and then it will send out automated installments to your email with your daily readings (http://www.dailyreader.net/content/book/The-Bible-(KJV):-Matthew ).

  6. I wanted to pass on another resource. This new book teaches you forty different step-by-step Bible study methods to help you discover, apply and enjoy God’s Word. Each practical method has a handwritten example to demonstrate it and make it easy for you to follow the steps. Learn how to study the Bible with so much variety that you’ll never get into the rut that routine brings ever again. Learn to Study the Bible has more Bible study methods than any other book out there!

  7. Online Evangelism through Bible-library.com

    We conduct online evangelism ad campaigns to reach people in Africa, India, China, and the Middle East, in addition to Europe and the Americas. Through online campaigns people can be reached with the Gospel in their native languages less than $0.10 per person. It is also possible to designate who to reach, by language and geographic location.

    Our online evangelism effort started in 2006. Since then, more than 54,000 people from 100+ countries have responded to read this Gospel tract: http://bible-library.com/whoisjesus
    The tract is shared in (6) languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, Hebrew, Hindi, and Tamil.

    With this approach, we can reach people in countries hostile to Christianity. In 2009, more than 4000 Arabic speakers from Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, and Lebanon have viewed the tract in Arabic. Another 2600+ people in China have viewed the tract in Chinese.

    Google ads promote the Gospel tracts in multiple languages. The ads are triggered when someone types a word like “Bible” or “Jesus” in Google, but also when they type words like “depression”, “suicide”, “unwanted pregnancy”, … The goal is to reach out to those in difficult situations.

    It’s like handing out tracts, except the person reading the tract has told us something about their situation with the words they’ve typed. At some point we could use that information to target a different message for each need. Today, they are directed to the “Who Is Jesus” tract in one of 6 languages.

  8. I apologize for the comment about “Online Evangelism”

    It was intended as an article suggestion for this Blog, not a public comment.

    Is there a way for me to delete?

    Apologies,
    David
