That’s what Salem’s Christian hosts do for our listeners across the country every day—and “The Christian Outlook” draws from the best of their material to bring you an hour-long program you won’t want to miss.

The Christian Outlook – August 26, 2023 Bill Bunkley talks with Kris Stout, a leader with the “Word of Life” ministry, about his eventful trip to Ukraine, where he engaged in youth ministry during the ongoing conflict, assisted in relocating orphanages to safer areas, and discussed the necessity of constructing a dual-purpose bomb shelter and gymnasium to comply with government regulations. Scott Furrow and Pastor Greg Laurie discuss the rapid devastation caused by a fire in Lahaina, Maui, and elaborate on their organization's comprehensive plans to assist in rebuilding the community, providing tangible support in the name of Jesus Christ. Georgene Rice and John Bursch, senior counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom, discuss the case of unequal treatment in public messaging in Washington, DC, where Black Lives Matter graffiti was endorsed by the mayor while pro-life activists were arrested for chalking "Black Pre-Born Lives Matter."  Aubrey Sampson and Chris Castaldo, the pastor of New Covenant Church, discuss his book, The Upside Down Kingdom: Wisdom for Life from the Beatitudes, highlighting the counterintuitive nature of the Christian life in the face of suffering and cultural challenges. Kathy Emmons interviews C.J. Williams about his book, The Shadow of Christ in the Book of Lamentations, discussing its unique nature and relevance in times of personal grief and societal challenges, and its valuable teachings on finding hope in the midst of trials and understanding the character of God's faithfulness. Bill Bunkley discusses with Mike Nappa, author of Reflections for the Grieving Soul: Meditations and Scripture for Finding Hope After Loss, about the value of experiencing grief and the importance of having supportive individuals who are willing to walk alongside and offer a constant presence during times of loss and mourning.
