Gabe Lyons and The Next Christians

Gabe Lyons, author, speaker and founder of Q, and I had the chance to talk about his new book, The Next Christians: The Good News About the End of Christian America. This is a follow-up to his groundbreaking book, unChristian (if you haven't read it - you need to!).

Gabe and I have become fast friends and his writings have always challenged the way I think and respond. In our conversation we talked about what he means by the end of Christian America and who exactly the next Christians are.

I urge you to pick up a copy of this book. You may not agree with everything Gabe has to say but I guarentee that you will be challenged. Get a few copies for some friends and have some great dialog!

The Lost Encyclopedia

I've mentioned a number of times both on the air and on this blog that I'm a huge fan of the television series Lost. A few weeks ago I was contacted by a publist about a new book that covers everything Lost and was wondering if I would like to conduct an interview with one of the co-authors, Tara Bennett. Of course I jumped at the chance!

Tara and I talked about the new book (which I was lucky enough to get a copy!) plus the show itself. We talked about the characters and the fans of the show plus we talked about how the writers and producers were able to weave in the storyline religious issues. It was a fascinating discussion.

Interviews from the National Conference on Christian Apologetics

I had a great time at the National Conference on Christian Apologetics which was held at Northside Baptist Church in Charlotte, NC October 15 and 16. There were so many speakers and I was able to interview most of them.

I have posted the ones that I highlighted during the Morning Show. Below you will find links to those interviews plus links to their respective web sites. To listen to the interview click on the title. Enjoy!!

Dr. Erwin Lutser
"Christ Among Other gods-Why Jesus is the Only Way"

Josh McDowell
"Tolerating the Intolerable"

Sean McDowell
"Why Any Serious Religious Quest Should Begin with Christianity"

Janet Mefferd

Jesus Take the Wheel

When I first received this book I initially thought that it was a biography of Carrie Underwood and so it sat on my desk for about a week. Then I opened it and found a wonderful discipleship program that I feel is so needed today.

Stuart Migdon has done a great job with this unique program and I urge you take a look at the book and I challenge you to do the 2-1-2 challenge: meet with 2 people, once a week for 2 months, and then see what God can do.
