The Day Satan Called

Bill Scott was confronted with an evil that most people never hear.  A young girl called the station Bill was working at and said that she would be sacrificed on Halloween night and then her voice changed and what came out was an evil that shook Bill to his core.  Nearly 21 years later and Bill is just now talking about it.  His new book, The Day Satan Called, will be released later this year, and it describes the 18 months that followed the phone call that changed his life.

I've know Bill for nearly 20 years and I thought I knew everything about him.  When I heard about his new book and was able to read the first chapter I realized that Bill had confronted evil head-on.  I was able to talk with Bill about this and his new book a few weeks ago. You can listen to the entire interview by clicking here or scrolling down.

The first chapter of The Day Satan Called is available for free by clicking here.  You can pre-order the book at Amazon.

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martry, Prophet, Spy

Since early last year I've been enamored with Diretrich Bonhoeffer, the German pastor who played a part in the assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler, and a member of the Confessing Church.  I came across Eric Metaxas' brilliant biography of Bonhoeffer and immediatly began to read it.  What an extraordinary life Bonhoeffer led.  Normally a quiet man, he spoke with such power and conviction regarding the national church in Germany and the Nazis' treatment of Jews.  Bonhoeffer has fast become one of my heros.

I had the chance to speak with Eric Metaxas about his book and his thoughts regarding Bonhoeffer.  You can hear the complete interview by clicking here or scrolling down.  I also urge you to pick up his book and learn as much as you can about Bonhoeffer.  You will be suprised at the similarities there are between Bonhoeffer's day and our current stiuations.

Dr. Alex McFarland on the Morning Show

Alex McFarland -
One of the privileges of being a radio personality is the number of people you meet and then become good friends.  Dr. Alex McFarland, former president of Southern Evangelical Seminary and radio host, author and speaker, is one of those people.  I had the chance to meet Alex for the first time last year at an apologetics conference in Charlotte and I have to say he is one of the most interesting speakers I've met.

Recently, Alex joined me on The Morning Show to talk about some current issues that has raised the question from many skeptics, "If God is a loving God then why did he allow the tsunami and earthquake to happen in Japan."  We also talked about the church's role in society.  It was a great conversation and you can listen to it by clicking here or scrolling down.

Alex will be a regular contributor to The Morning Show and you will be reading some of his articles on this blog.
