Do miracles really happen? Is the supernatural real? With his trademark investigative approach as an award-winning reporter, our guest will examine whether New Testament miracles pass for historical facts; if near-death experiences offer a glimpse into the afterlife; whether paranormal activity has any credibility; and more. We will learn the ways God still actively intervenes today—and what the church's response should be.
Today, our guest tells the story of his life growing up near Fort Worth, Texas, in the 1950's and the disintegration of his family following his father's suicide. In his mid-twenties, he would rise to fame and success as a leading scholar, popular speaker, and bestselling author. But despite being rescued and exalted, he would ultimately be crushed in the years that followed. Join us as we learn how to overcome life's disappointments and learning to hear God speak in unimaginable ways.

Jack Deere is a writer and lecturer who speaks throughout the world. Formerly he was an assistant professor of Old Testament at Dallas Theological Seminary for more than ten years, until he was fired in 1987 for reversing his stance on the gifts of the Holy Spirit—he had come to believe that gifts such as healing and prophecy are accessible today. This experience became the basis of his bestselling books, Surprised by the Power of the Spirit and Surprised by the Voice of God. Deere then spent four years with John Wimber at the Vineyard Christian fellowship in Anaheim California, and went on to pastor other churches. Jack and his wife Leesa currently live in St. Louis. They are the parents of Stephen, Alese, and the late Scott Deere.
