  • 10 July 2017: Divided We Fall – Dr. Luder Whitlock – Jesus prayed that Christians would all be one, and that the world would believe when they see our unity. That’s not working out so well. What’s up with that?! Join Dr. Luder Whitlock on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of his new book, Divided We Fall: Overcoming a History of Christian Disunity. Past performance is not necessarily an indicator of future results.

  • 3 July 2017: Little Saviors – Marci Preheim – We’re all looking for salvation in something or someone promising a path to the good life. Christian or not, we all have little saviors who offer a list of things to do in order to have the perfect marriage, family, and country. But when Christians put their faith in their ability to perform for God instead of his performance for them, it strikes at the heart of what we say we believe. Join Marci Preheim on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of her new book, Little Saviors: How Moralism Kills Intimacy and the Gospel of Grace. There is a true savior who is the way and the life we’re all longing for. Marci is the co-host of the podcast Fundyland Sees Red, a regular writer for Key Life, and the author of Grace Is Free: One Woman’s Journey From Fundamentalism to Failure to Faith.
  • 26 June 2017: The Imperfect Disciple – Jared Wilson – Does the word “discipleship” make you cringe? Have you given up on trying to fit into the Christian subculture mold? Maybe there’s some stuff in your life you’ve tried to quit over and over again, but you just can’t. Well have we got a show for you. Join Jared Wilson on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of his new book, The Imperfect Disciple: Grace for People Who Can’t Get Their Act Together.

  • 19 June 2017: Not Floating Alone – Levi the Poet – Words are powerful. They can hurt and heal. And some of the most healing words are those that artfully express the deepest hurts. We feel the pain of another, know that we are not alone, and find comfort in that communion. Join Levi Macallister on Steve Brown, Etc. as he talks about faith, mental illness, and putting it all into poetry. Levi Macallister is the performance artist and storyteller Levi the Poet. Visit levithepoet.net for tour information, videos, albums, posts, and all things Levi. Also, here’s the video for the piece played on the show titled “Resentment”.
  • 12 June 2017: Fathers Say… – Joe Battaglia – The wheel in the sky keeps on turning and Father’s Day is coming up again. You know what that means: it’s time to roll out the statistics on how dads are dropping the ball and bring on the guilt. Well, this show about radical grace ain’t going down that way without a fight! Join Joe Battaglia on Steve Brown, Etc. as he talks about his new book, Fathers Say…: Give the Gift of Blessing to Your Children.

  • 5 June 2017: Beautiful Feet – Melissa Heiland – So often, people won’t believe Christians who talk about God’s love until they see Christians who walk out God’s love. Join Melissa Heiland on Steve Brown, Etc. as she talks about missions, moms, and making a difference while sharing the good news of God’s grace. Melissa Heiland is the Founder and President of Beautiful Feet International, a missions organization that establishes pregnancy centers in countries all over the world.

  • 29 May 2017: Here We Still Stand – Daniel Price & Scott Keith – 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, when Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the church door in Wittenberg and Protestants proclaimed that sinners are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. That’s worth celebrating! Listen to Daniel Price and Scott Keith on Steve Brown, Etc. as they talk about why the Reformation is as relevant as ever.

  • 15 May 2017: Lost & Found – Kendra Fletcher (Re-Air) – Kendra Fletcher, homeschooling mom of eight, took pride in having it all together—the right schooling, the right theology, the right church, and the right meal-planning, home-managing, keep-it-all-together parenting. Then it all fell apart. Three of Kendra’s children were taken to the brink of death in a period of 18 months. Join Kendra on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of her new Key Life/New Growth Press book, Lost & Found: Losing Religion, Finding Grace. You’ll see that doing life and religion “right” is a poor substitute for a living relationship with a loving God. In addition to being a Key Life author, Kendra is a well-known writer, podcaster, and conference speaker in Christian homeschooling circles who addresses the quiet legalism that so easily infiltrates Christian communities and exposes the dangers of focusing our hopes on anything but the finished work of Jesus.   Click the image below to order Kendra’s book, Lost & Found: Losing Religion, Finding Grace.
  • 8 May 2017: Why I Left, Why I stayed – Tony & Bart Campolo – When a child who was raised in a Christian home leaves the faith, parents are heartbroken and often confused about how to handle the new family dynamic.

  • 1 May 2017: Getting Jesus Wrong – Matt Johnson (Re-Air) – Jesus is not a life coach, a movement leader, a cultural visionary, or a blessing dispenser, but you might not know that by listening to many Christians talk about their faith. Are you sure you’re following the right Jesus?

  • 24 April 2017: Making a Blended Family – Jerry Q. Parries – Second marriages and blended families are quickly becoming the new normal.

  • 17 April 2017: Undone Redone – Tray & Melody Lovvorn – After six years of being apart, Tray and Melody Lovvorn’s divorce just didn’t work out. It wasn’t buckling down and working real hard to follow Jesus’ 10 principles for a healthy marriage that fixed things. It was God’s radical grace! Join Tray and Melody from UndoneRedone.com as they tell their story of sexual addiction, betrayal, and flying off the whirring performance treadmill only to crash right into God’s unconditional love. Through Undone Redone, their ministry and weekly podcast, the Lovvorns provide life and marriage coaching, intensives, parenting solutions, and help churches create Christ-centered recovery groups. They have a passion to help men and women experience God’s grace in brokenness and to learn to connect deeply with others in authentic community.
  • 10 April 2017: Outside the Camp – Garth Cross – There’s a special kind of suffering reserved for people who have screwed up bad enough to be rejected by communities who say they believe in forgiveness and restoration. It’s a pain that brings perspective, but only after lament. Join Garth Cross on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of his book, Outside the Camp: A Former Pastor Looks at the Church from a Distance. Hear the laments of sin and shame, broken community, and people in pain. Then listen as God responds with his radical grace.

  • 3 April 2017: Undefended – Daniel Bush – It’s natural to avoid pain and suffering, but what if lowering our defenses actually opens us up to the supernatural? Would an intimate experience with God be worth giving up self-protection? Join Dr. Daniel Bush on Steve Brown, Etc. as he talks with Steve and the crew about his new book, Undefended: Discovering God When Your Guard Is Down. The truth is that pain is coming whether we embrace it or not, so why not be vulnerable enough to meet God where it hurts?

  • 13 February 2017: Grace Encounter – Elyse Fitzpatrick & Ray Cortese – Jesus said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” That’s more than a promise for the future.

  • 30 January 2017: Ladies, Lust & God’s Love – Sarah Taras – Given all the sermons calling out guys on sexual sin, one might think that’s a problem unique to men. But ladies struggle with lust too. And when that isn’t acknowledged in our churches, it can leave women feeling a double condemnation. They’re not only burdened with guilt because of their sin, they also experience the shame and isolation of thinking they’re the only women with that sin. Join Key Life author Sarah Taras on Steve Brown, Etc. for a conversation about how God’s unconditional love freed her to get honest about her problem with lust, and help other women who share the same struggle.

  • 23 January 2017: Finding a Rooted Faith – Fr. Andrew Petiprin – Are you desperate for truth and connection in an increasingly mad world? Has religion become a solitary endeavor for you? You may just find the longing of your heart in a rooted faith.

  • 16 January 2017: All in on Grace – Matt Johnson – Forgiveness is a nice idea until someone hurts you badly enough to need it. But our demands for changed behavior before we forgive will clog our arteries with bitterness and kill relationships. It’s better to bet everything on grace and just let it go. Join Steve and the crew as they get to know Key Life author Matt Johnson and talk about forgiveness and his post, Sorry Not Sorry. They also talk some about his upcoming book, Getting Jesus Wrong: Giving Up Spiritual Vitamins and Checklist Christianity. Matt is a husband, a father to two little girls, and an armchair student of theology. He is a freelance writer and editor with a penchant for redemptive snark. Until recently, Matt spent seven years as an associate volunteer pastor in counseling and recovery ministry.
  • 9 January 2017: Lost & Found – Kendra Fletcher – Kendra Fletcher is a homeschooling mother of eight who had it all together. Everything was dialed in—the right schooling, the right theology, the right church. Then it all fell apart and her family learned that being “right” wasn’t a good substitute for a living relationship with a loving God. Join Kendra on Steve Brown, Etc. to hear her story and get a sneak peek into her upcoming Key Life/New Growth Press book, Lost and Found: Losing Religion, Finding Grace (click to preorder). You’ll go from feeling woefully inadequate to celebrating God’s radical grace.

Check out Kendra’s author page at KeyLife.org.
  • 2 January 2017: Mister Preacher – Chad West – Chad West used to be a pastor. When that life fell apart, he loaded the few possessions he cared about into the back seat of his car, gave away or burned the rest, and drove off to start over with no real plan except to follow his heart. Join Chad on Steve Brown, Etc. to hear his story and get a sneak peek into his upcoming Key Life/New Growth Press book, The Lies We Live. If you’re wishing you had the faith for a fresh start in 2017, Chad’s story will either inspire you or really freak you out. Chad is the anti-social social media guy for Key Life. In addition to being a former pastor, Chad has a masters degree in clinical mental health counseling and he’s the author of the science fiction book, Fade. Hang out with him online at MisterPreacher.com and check out Chad’s author page at KeyLife.org.
  • 26 December 2016: Wholeheartedness – Dr. Chuck DeGroat (Re-Air) – Here’s a tough pill to swallow: Underneath all your busyness and exhaustion is the fear that you’re too fatally flawed to pull it all off. The toxin of shame drives you to prove to yourself and the world that you have what it takes. Then, frenzied and pulled in a thousand different directions, you look for rest and peace in all the wrong places. Sorry, but your new time management app ain’t gonna fix that mess. You need wholeheartedness. Join Dr. Chuck DeGroat on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of his book Wholeheartedness: Busyness, Exhaustion, and Healing the Divided Self. What if finding the rest and peace we long for is as easy as failing and falling into wholeness? Dr. DeGroat is associate professor of pastoral care and counseling at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan. He’s also the author of Toughest People to Love and Leaving Egypt: Finding God in the Wilderness Places. P.S. Click here to read what SBE producer, Erik Guzman, wrote about Wholeheartedness.
