John Whitcomb: August 22, 2016

We are “Celebrating Five Years of EGT”—beginning this week on “Encounter God’s Truth.”

In his very first question to Dr. John Whitcomb, host Wayne Shepherd asked our speaker why he had decided to begin a radio ministry at 87 years of age. Wayne uses this conversation to remind us of the goodness and faithfulness of God through our first five years of broadcasting.

We also hear short testimonies from both Ken Ham and Dr. Terry Mortenson of Answers in Genesis regarding the importance of the creationist classic, “The Genesis Flood.” We first presented these to mark the 50th anniversary of the book in 2011.

Our listeners know that we often return to the core subjects of Dr. Whitcomb’s teaching on creation, the Genesis Flood, Bible prophecy and apologetics—all in our quest to proclaim that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end.

Thus, we close this special broadcast with a portion of a classic message on the Genesis Flood—first delivered at Grace Baptist Bible College in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Thank you for listening—and please share this program with a friend!
