Jesus said that His disciples would be known by their love. This feature highlights a benefit fundraiser for Greg Wallace that illustrates what Christian community looks like for someone in need.

The works of 17th century Dutch master Rembrandt hang in many of the world’s most prestigious institutions and museums. He is considered by most art historians to be one of the greatest painters in European history. The anniversary of his birth was earlier this month, so I recently took a trip down to the Art Institute of Chicago to learn about this famous painter with Dr. John Walford, Professor of Art History at Wheaton College.

This year marked the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth.  While he was not the first to suggest evolutionary theories, but he is the figure most remembered for it due to the publication of his book “On The Origin of Species” 150 years ago.  This feature with three scientists from completely different perspectives on evolution discusses the life and legacy of Charles Darwin.  Participants include Dr. Terry Mortenson of Answers in Genesis, Dr. Keith Miller of Kansas University and Dr. Michael Behe of Lehigh University.

Next month marks the 179th anniversary of the birth of one of the most significant scientists of the 19th century.

For nearly 2 years now I have been privileged to be on the Prime Time America production team.  Tomorrow’s broadcast is our last and it is also my last day as a full-time employee of the Moody Bible Institute.  I am going to take a few months to finish a couple projects currently on my plate and hope to begin producing new audio features again in July or August of this year.

I am going to keep this current blog active but will not be adding new material to it.  Feel free to look through the archives and I’ll occasionally repost one of my favorites as well.  If you’d like to learn more about what I hope to do next, visit my new site: Ebenim Media.

Thank you so much for listening.

What does a firefly, a lobster’s eye, a dog’s paw and a young corn plant have in common? They all have inspired scientists and inventors to look at the world differently. This piece features a conversation on “elements of design from creation” with Dr. Donald DeYoung, Chairman of the Science and Math Department at Grace College, Winona Lake, IN.

In 2009 he coauthored Discovery of Design: Searching Out the Creator’s Secrets (Master Books).
