The Land and the Book
Air Date April 19, 2014
Easter. It’s one of the two Sundays of the year when even nominal Christians show up in church. But what’s the real significance of Easter? What is it that makes this Sunday so important? To help us answer those questions, we’re inviting Dr. Paul Nyquist, President of Moody Bible Institute, to join us in the studio as we discuss the importance of Easter.
Then in our devotional time we’ll look at the apostle Paul’s “good news” in 1 Corinthians 15.
Dr. Paul Nyquist, president of Moody Bible Institute, is the featured speaker on Moody Presents. Prior to coming to Moody in June 2009 he served as the president and CEO of Avant Ministries. Nyquist and his wife, Cheryl, have four grown children.
