Road maps are an essential part of any journey, including our journey through the Bible…and through life. But in these prophetically significant days, where can we find a good road map to keep us from making some wrong turns? Thankfully, Bridges for Peace has the answer. They’ve released a brand new edition of Israel and the Church: God’s Road Map. And Cheryl Hauer, International Development Director of that organization, will be with us to talk about the book…and about the ministry of Bridges for Peace. The Land and the Book

Kesher is the Hebrew word for “linkage” or “connection” and comes from the idea of binding or joining something together. Kesher is also the name of an inter-denominational monthly gathering in the Chicago area for those interested in learning more about Jewish culture…and building bridges with their Jewish friends and neighbors. The group was founded by Justin Kron, and we’ll be talking with him about Kesher…and about eXperience Israel, a program he has also started to take young adults to Israel. The Land and the Book

If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the past five years, it’s that there’s always something new and unexpected happening in Israel. From technological innovations…to archaeological discoveries…to current world events…Israel always seems to be at the center of the action. So we’ve asked Cheri Fitzsimmons, President and Founder of Morning Star Tours to share what visitors to Israel this year can expect to see and do. The Land and the Book

Less than a year ago the Islamic State burst onto the world stage. The dramatic capture of Iraq's second largest city-followed by the slaughter of thousands of Christians and the beheadings of several American hostages-vaulted them into the headlines. And yet most of us are confused. Who are they really? What do they want? Can they be stopped? On this week's program we'll try to answer these questions as Mark Tobey joins Charlie and Jon behind the microphone to talk about Charlie's and Mark's latest book, The ISIS Crisis. The Land and the Book

In Romans 1 the Apostle Paul said, "I am not ashamed of the gospel, for   it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek." Paul says God's "good news" was for the Jew first. Sadly, sharing God's good news with Jewish people today is often neglected. Wes Taber from Life in Messiah International will help us understand how to build bridges to our Jewish friends. The Land and the Book

Heaven is a wonderful place…but how much do we really know about it? Actually, the Bible tells us quite a bit about heaven. So much, in fact, that Dr. John Hart, Professor of Bible at Moody, has written a book titled 50 Things You Need to Know about Heaven . We'll be talking with John about his book, and about heaven, on this week's program. The Land and the Book
