The Bruised Reed on Calling for Truth – LIVE Next Week

As you may have already seen from the sidebar, Calling for Truth, a live call-in radio program of Dr. Paul Dean and Pastor Kevin Boling, has joined the 2008 Puritan Reading Challenge. Calling for Truth broadcasts every afternoon from 1:00-2:00 pm EST, originating from Greenville, South Carolina (Talk 660 – covering SC and parts of NC, GA, and TN). They also stream their radio show live on the internet, and the shows are available for download at the audio archives or their SermonsAudio page.

But not only has Calling for Truth joined the challenge, they have invited me (and YOU) to talk about the PRC on their radio program at the end of each month! I am scheduled to be their guest next Wednesday, January 30, to discuss the PRC and more importantly The Bruised Reed and Richard Sibbes. All of you participating in the reading program are invited to call-in (1.888.660.9535) during the program (1:00pm until 2:00pm EST) with your questions and/or comments.

Help me get the word out, if you don’t mind. 🙂 I would love to get the chance to talk with you guys next week!

    That’s exciting. Thanks for the heads up.

  2. D.L. Kane Says:

    Wonderful News! I’m in California and can’t join in or listen, but I will be in prayer for the show, the listeners and (especially) for you. 😉

    God Bless You, Timmy.


  3. D.L.,

    I don’t know what 1:00pm EST is in Cali time, but you listen online if you are not busy. Thanks for praying and the encouragement. Blessings.

    I believe it’s 10:00am PST and I will be at my desk, at work! You East Coast guys have all the fun!

    To change the subject: I must confess, I’ve been reading Sibbes from Vol. I of the Works of Richard Sibbes (Banner of Truth) hardback. I was curious if the paperback includes Sibbes dedication of the discourse or his message “To the General Reader”?

    If not, I wanted to share this quote from Sibbes regarding his work: “If our faith were but as firm as our state in Christ is secure and glorious, what manner of men should we be?” he goes on to say, (which blows my mind, because he calls this treatise a “few obervations”):

    “If I had gone about to affect writing in a high strain, I should have missed of mine end, and crossed the argument at hand. For shall we that are servants quench those weak sparks which our Lord himself is pleased to cherish?” and here’s the really wonderful quote:

    “I had rather hazard the censure of some, than hinder the good of others: which if it be any ways furthered by these few observations, I have what I aimed at. I intended not a treatise, but an opening of a text; what I shall be drawn to do in this kind must be by degrees, as leaisure in the midst of many interruptions will permit: The Lord guide our hearts, tongues, and pens for His glory and the good of His people.”

    So, he sees this treatise as a “few observations” and he writes it in his leisure as time permits. Anyway, just wanted to share, because I wasn’t sure if the paperback version had included this stuff.

    Flavel is waiting right around the bend “to entertain us and relieve us from the nonsense of surviving mortals”. Not my words (Samuel Davies) 1723-1761


  5. D.L.,

    Thanks for sharing that. The paperback does not include “To the General Reader” but has a publisher’s preface, so those quotes are much appreciated. I am aware that the pagination is different from the paperback than vol. 1 of Sibbes’ Works, but I figured that most people would be reading out of the paperback than the hardcover edition.

    Flavel is fantastic. But I cannot get ahead of the game!


  6. I’d love to call in but that would mean a 4:00AM wake up call for me! And as a busy mom of 7, I think I will choose beauty sleep! 🙂

    May the Lord give His blessing to you and your callers!
