Get 160 Basement Tapes Conversations FREE in July!

In 2002 Highlands started recording The Basement Tapes. What else happened in 2002? A few things have changed since 2002. We can now drive only half as far on the same amount of money (bummer), and there is no longer just one American Idol on the radio (double bummer). The good news is… Highlands is still recording The Basement Tapes. We now have 160 conversations recorded, and continue to add new topics which we send to our club members every month! We have talked about everything from family roles to politics, from theology to literature, from education to food (browse. . .

Highlands Ministries Then & Now

Highlands History Highlands Ministries started eighteen years ago as an experiment we called the Highlands Study Center (HSC). The question we pondered back then was this; “What would happen if we attempted to live like we were all on a youth retreat?” That dynamic is something that many of us can relate to—a period of time where learning and applying the scriptures within a closed community of your peers produces a group dedicated to loving and serving the Lord and one another. The downside is that after returning from camp the world we left encroaches and over time, claims us once. . .

Free Basement Tape Download! All in the Family

This weekend only we are offering Basement Tape #42 as a free download! This conversation is on age-segregation in the culture and the church. We talk about how, like the world around us, we see our families not as a single unit, but as a temporary arrangement of individuals. The family is never more temporarily together than when they come to church. Our programs have programmed out of our minds the very notion of the family as we all go different directions for our Bible studies, Sunday school classes, clubs, and activities. When did this become normal, and what is. . .

Immigration—New Basement Tape

Our newest Basement Tapes conversation is Aliens and Strangers. Immigration continues to be a hot political issue, but what does the Bible have to teach us on this topic? Often, we entrench ourselves in political opinions without ever asking that question. This conversation asks some deeper questions about the issue of immigration: Is it biblical to keep people out? How does God want us to treat aliens and strangers? How can we “love our neighbor as ourselves” in this context? What do work and laziness in citizens and immigrants have to do with this question? Does racism play into our. . .

Why are Protestants Leaving for Rome?

A Surprisingly Common Question Because of the Tiber river’s association with Rome, “Swimming the Tiber” has over the centuries become Protestant shorthand for converting to Roman Catholicism. Many of us have friends who have crossed this river to Rome or Russia or Greece or wherever their sect of Orthodoxy calls home. Why are they leaving us? Are they merely changing cities or are they leaving the faith entirely? This is exactly the question discussed in our newest Basement Tape release. Swimming the Tiber is #145 in our series of recorded conversations on topics that range from theology, to culture, to. . .

New Basement Tape Release #144

This new Basement Tape conversation is the final in our Alphabet series on theology. Z is for Omega (The End). This conversation between Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr., Rev. Laurence Windham and their friends considers the end, heaven, and eternity. What does the end of this world look like? Where is life going?
