New “Iron Sharpens Iron” Theme Music

New “Iron Sharpens Iron” Theme Music

A couple of great guys with 10:31 Sermon Jams @ Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, MN where John Piper ministers were kind, gracious & generous enough with their time & talents to create the attached new Open for my “Iron Sharpens Iron” radio program at no charge!!    My old friend Gray Payne, my original announcer for “ISI”, was kind enough to offer his deep, baritone, Morgan Freeman-like voice once again & my friend Pastor Bill Shishko of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Franklin Square offered the recording studio in his manse to get the job done for the voice track, to which the gang in MN then added music.   Keep in mind that the music intentionally trails long after the announcer finishes speaking for fade-out purposes. I think they did an absolutely AWESOME job!!! http://media.blubrry.com/ironsharpensiron/p/www.ironsharpensironradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Master-Radio.m4aPodcast: Play in new window |...
“The Old Manse”: Our new broadcast home in historic, downtown Carlisle, PA

“The Old Manse”: Our new broadcast home in historic, downtown Carlisle, PA

Here are some very interesting facts about the new broadcast home of “Iron Sharpens Iron” here in historic, downtown Carlisle, PA, affectionately known around here as “The Old Manse”: “Iron Sharpens Iron” broadcasts LIVE from the 19th century parsonage of a local historic figure here in Carlisle, Rev. George Norcross, co-author/editor of The Story of a 30th Anniversary, and brother-in-law of Rev. Sheldon Jackson, a well-known minister who planted over 100 missions and churches in the western US and Alaska and is listed among the Top 10 Alaskans in TIME Magazine… Jackson spent a lot of time here in “The Old Manse”. Another very notable member of the “extended family” in the home of “Iron Sharpens Iron” was a very closely-knit friend of Rev. Norcross’s wife Louise and their 4 daughters, renowned, Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Marianne Moore. Moore fondly mentions the Norcross women in her 1963 essay, “Education of a Poet.” Her intellectual discussions with them were obviously quite deep, invigorating and stimulating since she laments in the essay that her time at Bryn Mawr College was a “disappointing contrast.” Mary Norcross (a Bryn Mawr graduate) tutored Moore in the 15 difficult Bryn Mawr entrance examinations (according to Bethany Hicok’s work Degrees of Freedom: American Women Poets and the Women’s College, 1905-1955). Tribute was paid to the Pulitzer Prize poet on a Marianne Moore 25 Cent US Postage Stamp. Below are the words of Rev. Norcross from his New Year’s Day sermon in 1899: “The religion of the Bible is historical. It is founded on great facts and the testimony of eyewitnesses. Though enemies without and traitors within the Church are doing their best to discredit the historical basis of the Old and New Testaments, these efforts will end in defeat,...

Dr. James R. White agrees to be 1st guest

Well it’s official!!! My very dear friend of over 20 years, world-renowned theologian, author & debater Dr. James R. White of Alpha & Omega Ministries has agreed to be my very 1st guest on the debut broadcast of my live radio program “Iron Sharpens Iron” (which aired 2006-11 before my hiatus)!!! Dr. White made the announcement May 14th on his own “Dividing Line” broadcast. My scheduled relaunch date is Mon, JUNE 1st, 4-5pmEDT, & the program will be heard Monday thru Friday each week globally on the Leading Edge Radio Network (click “CH. 3 – CHRISTIAN” on the right side of the page). Dr. White was my very 1st guest back in 2006 when my program 1st launched so it is my honor & privilege that he kept that tradition going. We plan to relaunch my program with the very timely & controversial theme of “SAME SEX MARRIAGE” (unless God has other plans before then). This is an excellent theme not only due to obvious current events but also due to the fact that among the dozens of published works Dr. White has written one is “THE SAME SEX CONTROVERSY” (coauthored with Jeffrey D. Niell). Dr. White has also debated against a number of leading advocates of homosexuality & same sex marriage. Please pray for God’s blessings upon my relaunch. In His grip, Chris Arnzen Iron Sharpens Iron...
