Hour 1 – A Fresh Take on the Good Book / The Liberty Threat
The Duck Commander family continues to boldly proclaim their faith in Jesus! Al Robertson will join Janet to introduce a unique new project designed to encourage families to dig deep into the Word of God! Then, many Americans are deeply concerned about the increasing prejudice against religion and Christians in particular. What can be done to reverse this trend? Writer and commentator, Jim Tonkowich, will look back at the turbulent history of religious liberty and the issues that must be addressed if real change is to occur!
Hour 2 – Kidnapped by the Taliban
It’s the stuff of action films but for one man, it was real life! He was serving Afghan villagers in a rural clinic when, in a moment, everything was ripped away and all he could do was pray for a chance to live. Dr. Dilip Joseph will share his moving account of terror, triumph and the price of freedom!
Al Robertson is the oldest son of the Duck Commander and Miss Kay. He grew up in the family’s small house on the Ouachita River in rural Northeast Louisiana hunting and fishing and helping build the foundation of the family duck call business. Alan left Duck Commander to serve in full-time ministry for over 25 years, but returned to Duck Commander in 2013 and is now appearing on Duck Dynasty as the only beardless brother in the family. Al plays a vital role in the family’s commitment to spreading the gospel of Christ through their love of hunting and the great outdoors.
