The Land and the Book
Air Date October 25, 2014
A truism of life is that “timing is everything.” Over the years we’ve seen examples of the right person being at the right place, at the right time, with the right product or message. And the rest, as they say, is history! And no author illustrates this better than Joel Rosenberg! We’ll talk with Joel about how his books have captured the pulse of the Middle East in a way that almost foreshadows the headlines from tomorrow’s newspaper.
Then later in the program we’ll continue our drive down the Jordan Valley. Our destination is Adam…the town, not the person! We’ll visit the site and discover the role it played in the lives of the patriarchs and Joshua.
Joel Rosenberg is the New York Times best-selling author of eight novels and five nonfiction books, with over three million total copies in print. He’s also the founder of the Joshua Fund, a nonprofit charitable and educational organization that mobilizes Christians to provide humanitarian relief for victims of war and terrorism in Israel and the Muslim world.
