It's almost time to tear off the final page of the calendar and start a new year. And as you make your new year's resolutions, one of them might just be to travel to Israel to see the land of the Bible. But if you do plan on visiting Israel, make sure you also get to know some of the "living stones" of the land, the people who call that country "home." Those on our Land and the Book Israel trip this past November had just such an opportunity, and you'll get to join them as we meet Eric and Terri Morey: two of God's amazing "living stones" in the land.

Then later, in our devotional time, travel with our group to Caesarea as we stand in the palace built by Herod the Great and look more closely at Cornelius, the Roman centurion from Caesarea who came to faith in Jesus.

Christmas is here! Well, almost here! The children may not be nestled all snug in their beds quite yet, but this coming Tuesday is the day many Christians celebrate the birth of our Savior. Is it the exact day? We really can't say for sure. But we do know key events surrounding the birth of our Lord from the Bible. And today's guest, Dr. Mark Bailey, will help us understand those events more clearly!

This program also marks the end of our five-part devotional series on the women in Matthew's genealogy of Jesus. Matthew saved the best for last! Join us as we take an in-depth look at Mary, Jesus' mother.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...or so goes the song! From the music on the radio to the decorations in store windows, it's hard to miss the fact that Christmas is almost here. But what would it have been like for Mary and Joseph that very first Christmas? If we could somehow go back in time, what would the sights, sounds and smells of that first Christmas season have been like? We don't have a time machine here on The Land and the Book, but we have the next best thing…someone who has lived in the land of Israel and who knows it like the back of his own hand. We'll be talking with Todd Bolen about what it would have been like for Mary and Joseph that first Christmas season.

Then, in our devotional time together, we'll continue our study of Matthew's "Five Golden Rings" by exploring the fourth woman included in his genealogy of Jesus…Bathsheba, the unnamed woman!

We talk often on this program about visiting Israel and the impact it can make on a person's life, but what if the person is mobility impaired or has some other disability? How handicapped accessible is Israel? This week's guest is Greg Hatteberg, and he understands first hand the challenges an Israel trip can have on the mobility impaired. His wife Lisa has MS, and Greg has taken her to Israel three times.

Later in the program, in our devotional time, we'll continue our Christmas theme by exploring the third of the "Five Golden Rings" in Matthew's genealogy of Jesus. Our journey this week takes us to Bethlehem to visit with Ruth the Moabite.

As the Christmas season approaches, we thought it was the right time to focus on some "good news" from the war-scarred country of Afghanistan. Kate McCord, the author of a new book from Moody Publishers titled In the Land of Blue Burqas, will help us do that. Our guest's real name has been changed to protect her and the women she worked with. But we can assure you, Kate is the "real deal." At the pinnacle of a high-powered career, she left it all, sold everything and moved to Afghanistan to start an organization to help Afghani women. Her story will encourage you!

 

Then, in our devotional time together, we'll continue our study of "Five Golden Rings" by looking at the second of the five women in Matthew's genealogy of Jesus: Rahab the harlot.

Ready to hit the waves? This week we're going surfing in Israel with Todd Morehead! Confused? Well, this might help. Todd Morehead is an avid surfer from Southern California who is also the director and co-producer of a film titled "Promised Land." We'll discuss how surfing, ministry to the Jewish people and this film really do fit together!

Then, in our devotional segment, we'll begin working our way toward the holiday season by starting a five-part series focusing on Matthew's "Five Golden Rings" of Christmas.

In the military it's called an AAR: after action review. It's a review of what happened, why it happened, and how it can be done even better in the future. This week Charlie and Jon, along with Dan Anderson, will be conducting their own AAR of the recent Land and the Book trip to Israel. What were the highlights? The surprises? The unique opportunities? Join us for an insider's look at what really happened on the trip!

Later in the program, during our devotional time together, we'll focus on Thanksgiving by looking at Jeremiah's amazing words in Lamentations 3-Great Is Thy Faithfulness!

Ready for seconds? This week is part two of our Land and the Book Live event from just outside Cleveland. Our guests are Samya and Mike Johnson. Those aren't their real names…and you'll understand why when you hear about their ministry.

Then in our devotional segment, we journey from the wilderness to the royal palace as we finish our two-part series on Psalm 23.

Pack your suitcase, and don't forget your toothbrush. We're hitting the road! This week is the first of two programs recorded at a Land and the Book Live event just outside Cleveland. Our guests are Samya and Mike Johnson. Those aren't their real names, and you'll understand why we had to use pseudonyms when you hear about their ministry.

Later in the program, during our devotional time together, we'll trek into the Judean Wilderness to begin a two-part series on Psalm 23.
