Program Segments

Hour A, Segment 1

Missed opportunities in Syria lead to no-win intervention options

Mindy Belz is editor of WORLD Magazine and writer of the thrice weekly column focused on international news "Globe Trot." 

In this interview she discusses the imminent U.S. military response to evidence of the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons in the country’s civil war. Belz says because Washington lacked a coherent policy in the region and missed opportunities to make a positive impact much earlier, any strikes will redound to the benefit of jihadists who have infiltrated the scattered rebel forces. She also warns of round of attacks on Syria’s Christian community by Islamists exploiting the chaos.

Hour A, Segment 4

The Bible, Part 2: Helping people engage with the Holy Scriptures

Most Christians in America don’t read the Bible regularly. Today, WORLD News Group’s Christina Darnell reports on groups that are trying new—and old—methods to try to get people to reconnect with the Scriptures. (Second of a two-part series.)

Biblica's Community Bible Experience encourages communities of faith to read the New Testament together in eight weeks. The program promotes The Books of the Bible, which includes all the books of the New Testament in a single column format without chapter references (added in the 1300s) and verse markings (added in the 1500s). The program also includes the Bible in audio format. 

Much of the research conducted by the Center for Bible Engagement can be found in the book UnStuck (Bethany House, 2012) written by Arnie Cole and Michael Ross. You can find more of their research and services at centerforbibleengagement.org.
