Chris Brooks talks with a man who believes there is hope for America if Christians will carefully align our political views with Scripture rather than retrofitting our beliefs to fit our politics! He will also challenge our thinking about the redemptive role of faith in the public arena and the power of humble, authentic service to others. If you need some hope for our country, don’t miss Chris’s inspiring conversation with Gov. Bill Haslam.
