Paul Washer and HeartCry Missionary Society

HeartCry Missionary Society held a conference on prayer in 2006 with a number of preachers.  Paul Washer took two messages to talk about missions work, which provide a significant challenge not only in regards to prayer, but in a believers entire dependancy of life on God.

In Session 3 Washer describes his conversion and his early years as a missionary in Peru.  God’s work through this humble servant is fascinating, and at the same time, utterly convicting.

In Session 5 Paul talks more about the work HeartCry is involved in across the world, and the particular principles and convictions that they operate by.  Paul explains why they are focused on supporting indiginous missionaries rather than sending missionaries.  He talks about why they send Bibles to believers and not to unbelievers.  He also cuts through the modern day missions clutter to explain how missions minded people must be primarily interested in Biblical truth.  “We send truth, not missionaries.”

I have to say this is a very impactful duo of messages.

An Afternoon with Milton

The Andrew Fuller Center celebrated the quartercentenary of the birth of John Milton, the author of Paradise Lost, with a number of lectures and readings from Milton.  All the short sessions are contain on a single mp3 file.

Milton was a colorful figure.  He was sometimes scandalous, sometimes politically revolutionary, very often theologically confusing, but a master of the English language.  Paradise Lost was his crowning achievement, a masterful epic poem, and an affirmation of the Christian faith.

You will enjoy these lectures if you have a love for English literature and poetry, or an interest in John Milton.  If not, these will be a struggle to get through.  The readings, unfortunately, are not particularly inspiring — a difficulty not only of the delivery, but of the poetic language.

Why listen to this?  There’s some interesting history on the life of Milton, certainly an imperfect Christian figure, but Milton stepped out and took stands on issues rather than standing on sidelines, and he is an example of a creative Christian using his skills of the English language and storytelling to create timeless works.
