I've been listening to Paul Vanderklay (a Christian Reformed pastor) on his podcast & youtube channel. He is engaging the material of a popular secular psychologist's who relies heavily on the Bible. Jordan B Peterson is the author of "12 Rules for Life". Vanderklay is using interest in Peterson to draw unbelievers into conversations about life and meaning.

https://youtu.be/H_prMglq2Xg is Paul discussing why the church should be discussing Peterson's work.

I'm hooked on listening to Vanderklay and Peterson to understand why Peterson's use of scripture (which is purely based in psychology, and not history or theology) is so captivating to growing numbers of people.

If any of you (believer or skeptic) want to discuss Peterson's work and impact, please send me a PM.

Vanderklay's material includes sermon material and interviews with a broad variety of people - many of whom are not close to faith. He engages in a very respectful and thoughtful manner.

I just subscribed to Vanderklay. I see an interview with JP and I'll give it a listen. Thanks.

I DVR Dr. David Jeremiah ("Turning Point") and watch him faithfully. I used to listen to his earlier sermons (when he was younger and before I knew about him) and his voice was booming, but YouTube took those down.

Here is a younger Dr. Jeremiah discussing worry. Great lesson.

Here is one from Dr. Jeremiah that wasn't tossed for copyright.

Listen to his voice. He had an entire series on "Love's Power Over....." Most have been pulled by YouTube but this man must have been something to behold when he was younger.

Audio only: My favorite

"Loves Powers Over Pride"

Skip Heitzig has a series called "The Bible from 30K feet."
(Skip is the pastor for Calvary Chapel Albuquerque.)

Lots of great stuff in this series.

I like listening to some of Chuck Missler's messages on you tube regarding the Biblical narrative as it applies to current scientific research

X2. Dr Missler, May he Rest In Peace, was the biblical teacher of today who influenced my faith and understanding as well. He and Chuck Smith out of Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa in the mid 80’s taught me so much I listened to his cassette tapes back then. His science background and scripture knowledge was just what I needed. I highly recommend his works both in book and his lectures now available on Utube. The Koinonia House is his and his late wife Nancy’s website now ran by others with a ton of information on it.

His "Learn the Bible in 24 Hours" series is one of the best. I have watched it several times and learn something new each time I watch it. He was a wealth of knowledge and is missed.

When I first started to dig into the Bible the first book I bought to help me "navigate" was How to Read the Bible in 24-Hours. It is a basic intro to the books and obviously isn't meant to teach you how to read the Bible in 24-hours, it just has 24 chapters. Great for me because I was raised Catholic and didn't have a tight grasp on any of the books to he honest. Reading his book led me to the "Popular Survey of the OT" and "Popular Survey of the NT" books my Norman Geisler, who we sadly lost recently as well.

For the past two years I have been following along the Bible in One Year reading plan with Nicky and Pippa Gumbel of Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB) Church. I use the Bible App on my iPhone to study and it has become the favorite part of my morning. Most of the times I find their short devotionals to be sincere, meaningful, and thought-provocative. I hope that an updated BIOY2020 for the next year is in the making as we speak!

This may not be a suitable reading plan for many of the posters in this thread since you all appear to be far more advanced in your theological knowledge. But I still wanted to share it in case there are some readers here looking to start (or pick up where they left off) their Bible reading daily practice in the new year.

That is pretty cool, GWAG! My morning devotions get me through the day. Our synod (WELS) just put out the(evangelical heritage version) of the Bible last year. Really smooth reading for me, the main theologian on the project is a close family friend, Prof. John Brug. I was turned onto a morning devotion by an old girlfriend a few years back that I read also along with my scripture readings, Jesus Calling , by Sarah Young.

I have not. Is it on you tube or on the Koinonia website? Thanks for making me aware of it. I will watch it and get back to you. I have read his books on the four horsemen though. He has a book out called Prophecy 20/20 which was an eye opener as well.

They are on youtube the black horse session 2 is most excellent and would be my suggestion for those with short attention spans or just wondering what he is about.

Long time listener of the late Pastor Arnold Murray out of Gravette Arkansas. Former Marine who fought up in the Chosin Reservoir. He was right in my wheel house for consuming all things spiritually speaking.

7 videos into Jordan Peterson's "Biblical Series" lectures on YouTube. They contain what I consider to be some of the most meaningful and profound ideas I've ever heard.

I just finished today's live stream of our service, only ten people are allowed in the building! Am fortunate to have a place of worship so close to home. I am praying those of you in the faith of our Lord are able to somehow worship these days as well. These are trying times for many and it gave me pause thinking of how so many have been persecuted in the history of this world , having to worship in secret for fear of their lives. I am thankful this miserable wretch can still worship without persecution.

I will be going online to church in twenty minutes, this will be a new experience and I will add it to my church memories such as Protestant services at Ranger School, and field services with the Battalion chaplain.

I can't remember the service in RS, but I did graduate on Easter Sunday,in'79. My fondest memory of worship was brookie fishing all the way to service at a ranch house outside of Yampa, Co. I would fish all the way there and then change into my better duds . Service was in the afternoon on Sundays, once a month. Cool bunch of country folk!
