Interview with Christian author, Larry Buttram

I conducted my first interview of 2009 today after a bit of hiatus for health reasons and to spend more time writing.

You can listen to and/or download my interview with author Larry Buttram

I had a wonderful time speaking with Larry. Mr.Buttram is a master of suspense writing. He has four publications currently in print, and delivers layers of intrigue and mystery that keep his readers on the edge of their seats. His carefully woven tales make him a favorite among readers who seek great mystery writers. Larry's books include Novels: False Witness, Honor Thy Sister, The Third Generation and the forthcoming The Curtain Torn and a book of Short Stories: The Greatest Gift.

On today's show we discussed "Repentance."
We opened with Scripture from Mark 2:17 (King James Version) using
"When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."

We followed that with an opening prayer.

I used to find several definitions including: "Remorse or contrition for past conduct or sin."

Bible Guide- Repentance:

The Greek word for repentance (metanoia) denotes a change of mind, which is given external credence by a change of allegiance and of lifestyle in accordance with the new values adopted.


A shout out of thanks for my Blogtalk colleague, fellow Christian blogger, Pastor Ann, who asked other show hosts to dedicate a show to the issue of Repentance during the week of April 5.

Easter v. Resurrection Sunday:
This Sunday, 12 April 2009 Christians observed what is commonly referred to as "Easter," but my Pastor, Dr. Lucius M. Dalton, of Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, and others are using the more appropriate term "Resurrection Sunday" as it places the focus on the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, and not some commercialized holiday called Easter.

Here's a link to an NPR interview with Pastor A.R. Bernard, one of my favorite radio preachers, that ran a few years ago about the notion of Resurrection Sunday.

I closed the show with a few reminders:
On Wed., 15 April, at 10 a.m. Eastern Time, I will interview with Christian author, Larry Buttram, on my other show, Write On, Right On, Write On!:

and I encourage you to visit the Web site of my home church, Mt. Moriah Baptist Church and while you're there, listen to the sermons of our Pastor, Dr. Lucius M. Dalton.

Until next week's show, on 16 April 2009 at 11 a.m. Eastern Time.

Your Brother-in-Christ,

3 April '09: Bible Study Resources

I'm baaaaackkkkk! I've been away from doing a weekly, Internet Radio, Bible study show and blog for too long.

My health is a bit better, so there's no excuse for me not to honor the Lord by sharing what I'm studying about the Bible.

At times I didn't think I should do this show as I thought, "Who really wants to listen to this?" Based on the emails I've received and the numerical count of listeners, it became clear to me that people are listening. And if just one person benefits from what I share about my personal Bible study, then that's a blessing.

I hosted my first show of 2009 at 11 a.m., 3 April 2009 at 11 a.m. Eastern Time at:

On today's show we discussed the following items:

--The church I attend, Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, has a new design:


--Palm Sunday is this Sunday, 5 April. I read a passage from the International Bible Society's Web site about Palm Sunday: Jesus' Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem based on Mark 11:1-11


--Pastor David Jeremiah's sermon series on the book of Daniel called, "The Handwriting on the Wall"

You can visit Pastor Jeremiah's archive to listen to the series, which I believe began on Feb. 20:

--David Jeremiah's main Web site is:


--A fellow Christian blogger, Pastor Ann has asked other show hosts to dedicate a show to the issue of Repentance during the week of April 5.

You can listen to Pastor Ann's show at:


--In my personal Bible study I'm reading the Old Testament from start to finish. I'm currently in the Book of Numbers, Chapter 6, which talks about the Nazarites, who made a vow of separation to the Lord.

--The Bible search engine,, I use has a commentary about the Nazarites.

--I've found the commentaries and outlines provided by Thru the Bible with Dr. James Vernon McGee to be quite useful.

--I wanted to close the show with the reading of the King James Version of Numbers 6:22-27, but forgot to do so, but you can read it and consider it my closing remarks to you! : )


Until our next show, on Thursday, 9 April, have a blessed week.

Your Brother-in-Christ,
