Radio Interviews

Radio Interview: Dale Kreienkamp - How Long O Lord

All too often, our identity is wrapped around our professions. When we meet others, we ask “So, what do you do?” and answer the same question. When that “identity” is lost, it can be a time of questioning, doubting, and wandering.

Having walked that valley himself, Dale Kreienkamp sought to provide encouragement and direction to others who might be seeking the next step in life OR to those seeking to support those in that process. Dale joined us on Bott Radio Network #EncounterKSIV to discuss How Long Oh Lord? .

Radio Interview: Lauren Gaskill - Into the Deep

It can be a lot easier to put on a mask than it is to admit we are in pain. Physical… Emotional… Spiritual…

And yet, even as we feel as if we are drowning in the worst of storms, there is a way that we can live our faith without fear. Lauren Gaskill joined us on Bott Radio Network #EncounterKSIV to share a bit of her own testimony with chronic illness, anxiety, and other struggles. When you listen to the interview archived below, you’ll hear how she didn't run for the shore but actually plunged deeper into faith with Jesus. Her new book, Into the Deep, is a blessing for anyone who wants to rip off the mask and a life of boldness.

Radio Interview: Angela Hunt - Jerusalem's Queen

It was a Novel Day on Bott Radio Network #EncounterKSIV when we were joined first by Angela Hunt, novelist. She was kind enough to return to discuss the latest book in the Silent Years series.

Jerusalem’s Queen paints a magnificent picture of God’s sovereignty at work in laying the perfect foundation for the arrival of the Messiah. This relatively unknown woman, Salome Alexandra, was used in a mighty way as God brought her from obscurity to become Jerusalem's Queen. (Seriously. This is truly a remarkable book if you wonder this Christmas Season how some guy named Herod got to the throne. You'll want to hear Dr. Angela Hunt's insight of the details that set the stage!)

Radio Interview: Lynn Blackburn - In Too Deep

The Novel Day continued as a first time guest, Lynn Huggins Blackburn, joined us on Bott Radio Network #EncounterKSIV. Lynn's newest book, In Too Deep, is the second in the Dive Team Investigations series from Baker Books. From the moment you dive in, you'll be swimming deeply in mystery and mayhem as the evidence mounts up and points a bit too close to home. Personally, I’d never thought of the challenges that face investigators as they try to explore the very murky depths. Listen to the link below as Lynn shares her hands-on research!

God is Love versus love is god.

Radio Interview: Tim Stevens - Marked by Love

Signs, signs, everywhere are signs... But, to be clear, we are not talking about yard signs, stop signs, or even billboards.
The question, for Christians, is what signs of your FAITH can others see? It's not about a tattoo, a uniform, or something you wear. It's about who you are in Christ and what you do in response to grace. In Marked By Love, Tim Stevens walks readers through 31 story driven chapters to guide you forward in your faith journey. He joins us on Bott Radio Network #EncounterKSIV to share his thoughts and heart behind this book.

Radio Interview: Jane Kirkpatrick - Everything She Didn't Say

The simple reality is that we can’t know everything. While we may love history, there are countless people who have done incredible things over the centuries. Some received “press” while others went on humbly behind the scenes.

Pulling a ‘forgotten’ true story from history, author Jane Kirkpatrick takes us back to 1911 as we explore the American West with Carrie Strahorn. You'll be fascinated by this novel that takes readers into the heart of a true story of a life in adventure and conflict. www.JKbooks.com

Radio Interview: Rick McKinley - Faith for this Moment

Polarized. Pluralistic. Post-Christian. Positively puzzling, right?

What does it mean to be the people of God today? If a Christian feels like an exile within their own country, how do they react to those around them who don't seem to be walking the same path? On a recent Bott Radio Network #EncounterKSIV, Rick McKinley joined us for a conversation based from his newest book from Baker Books, Faith for this Moment. Rick spoke from his calling and experience while serving through the Imago Dei Community in Portland, Oregon.

Radio Interview: Wendy Pope - Yes No & Maybe

Covered in dust from the road, the Apostle Paul had to face the One whom he had been persecuting. As he did this that day and the years ahead, he continuously had to wrestle with living the life that Jesus died to give him.
To help women on their faith journeys, speaker and author Wendy Pope, joined us on #EncounterKSIV to share her new David C Cook title, Yes, No, & Maybe. Listen to the interview below as Wendy challenges you to consider the heartfelt issues that can revitalize relationships with God.

"Yes" can cultivate an unbreakable trust with God.

"No" can invite you into revelation into who God designed you to be.

"Maybe" welcomes the freedom to confidently love, give, and serve in God's Kingdom.

Radio Interview: Travis Collins - What Does it mean to be Welcoming

There is little doubt that one of the most challenging cultural questions with which the Church must wrestle is the one on sexuality. Over and over again, the Church is confronted with "you must" demands from the world. And yet, the Church is called to be faithful to the Word of God. How then can each church determine how they can fulfill the Great Commission?
These questions (and more) are addressed in the InterVarsity Press, What Does It Mean to be Welcoming release, by Travis Collins, the pastor of First Baptist in Huntsville, AL. Working from a traditional perspective (“welcoming but not affirming”), Collins calls readers to grace, truth, and humility in a very complex world! Listen to the interview below to hear from Travis.

Radio Interview: James Banks - Praying the Prayers of the Bible for Kids

Can children pray?
While that may seem like a simplistic question, there are some who think children should be relegated to rote prayers at mealtime or bedtime. However, the sooner you can introduce a child to the Word of God and help guide them to developing conversations with God, the more solid their foundation will be!
James Banks, author of wonderful treasures like Prayers for Prodigals and Praying Together, has a new book to help you. Praying the Prayers of the Bible for Kids takes kid-friendly translations of Scripture and blends them with both rhyming verses and interactive prompts to help children understand and apply God's Word. Learn more about James at www.JamesBanks.org. You may also listen to the Bott Radio Network #EncounterKSIV interview posted below!

Radio Interview: Denise Pass - Shame Off You

Shame. It can be a weight that drags you down, and down, and down... Whether it was something of your own doing or caused by someone else, we need to understand through God's Word how He is bigger than any of the things of our past.

Denise Pass - Author/Speaker/Worship Leader joined us on Bott Radio Network #EncounterKSIV to share her book from Abingdon Press, Shame Off You. Denise wrote from her own experience as well as through stories of others who have come to know the freedom through the love and grace of Jesus Christ.
