The Land and the Book
Air Date August 2, 2014
From Egypt…to Israel…to Syria…to Iraq. The news out of the Middle East seems so depressing. We’re left with the impression that the entire region is locked in an endless cycle of violence. Is there any hope for the Middle East? The answer is a resounding yes! This week’s guest is Tom Doyle from e3 Partners, and he’ll help us gain a realistic perspective on what’s going on in that strategic part of the world…including what God is doing!
Then in our devotional time I’m starting a new eight-part series I’m calling Great Confessions of the Bible. This week we’ll journey to the city of Shechem to hear Joshua’s great call to commitment in Joshua 24.
Tom is Vice-President of Church and Ministry Partnerships for e3 Partners, a ministry committed to equipping believers to evangelize the lost and to establish thriving churches that will continue to make an impact on their communities.
