The talk radio show Issues, Etc., has a great line-up for Holy Week. This would be a good time to check it out and to see what the big deal is about that program. It airs live from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central Time and can be heard on the web, as well as a number of radio stations across the country. (Go to the website for a list of stations that carry it.) The daily programs are archived on the website, so you can listen to them at your leisure. (And check out the iPhone and Android apps, the latter of which is a creation of Michael O’Connor, who goes to our church.)
Here are the topics and guests for each day of Holy Week:
Monday, April 2–The Events of Holy Week. Dr. Paul Maier of Western Michigan University
Tuesday, April 3–The Last Supper According to Luke’s Gospel. Dr. Arthur Just of Concordia Theological SeminaryWednesday, April 4–The Last Words of Jesus from the Cross. Pr. Bill Cwirla of Holy Trinity Lutheran-Hacienda Heights, CA

For those of you who are fans, what would you say is so special about Issues, Etc.? What would you say to convince someone–say, who is not a Lutheran–to tune in?
