At the Library with Mark Dever

This past summer I had the privilege to serve as an interim host for "At the Library," a program on WHCB 91.5 FM (a non-commercial, educational, Christian radio ministry) that features book previews (basically short overviews of the content and brief bios of the authors) and interviews with authors. The focus is on Christian books. I hope to post several of the interviews I was privileged to record.

Here is one with Mark Dever, primarily about his book, What Is a Healthy Church? We also discussed, in brief, Twelve Challenges Churches Face, printed sermons from his series in 1 Corinthians. (The interview is only lightly edited; the broadcast has to be edited for 15 minutes.)

We discussed the importance and necessity of the local church, expositional preaching, the Gospel, elder leadership, and the sufficiency of the Bible to teach us about ecclesiology. We also talked about his conversion and discussed the text of one of his sermons, specifically concerning the glorious truth of the resurrection (1 Cor. 15) and about his idea/experience of publishing his sermons.
