Frank Pastore hosted an afternoon radio show on KKLA in Los Angeles from 2004-2012. He loved to have Dallas on the show to discuss the hard questions of life. Because of that, some of the content of these interviews can be found in Dallas's book about apologetics: The Allure of Gentleness.

Resources

1: Responding to Those Caught in Sin

Frank asked Dallas to respond to the evil displayed in the recent execution of an Afghan woman allegedly caught in adultery, and to talk about how Jesus responded in a similar case. Includes comments about the beatitudes, righteousness, and some listener questions. Recorded July 9, 2012.

2: The Feminization of the Church

Topics: 1) Why the modern church has a problem recruiting, maintaining, equipping and mobilizing men.  2) Why having religious knowledge, rather than mere opinion, is key to understanding the Gospel.  3) Listener questions included topics of how prayer works, learning to identify the "voice" of God, and the part that reason plays in the process of salvation.  Recorded April 17, 2012.

3: The Incarnation, New Year's Resolutions

As a new year began and the holiday season came to a close, Dallas and Frank talked about why there needed to be an Incarnation and then Dallas shared the key to keeping New Year's Resolutions. That same key will free you up to live the "easier" Christian life, with far less effort.  Recorded January 6, 2012.

God's availability in "messy situations."  Forgiveness, love (loving our enemies, how do you fire someone in Christian love, love verses sentimentalism), parenting. Recorded May 18, 2011.
