Today, we start our broadcast by looking at some of the big stories making headlines. We then take a look at some of the issues the Center for Military Readiness has worked on over the past year to help repair the broken parts of our military. Then, we will talk with an artist who has created The Illuminated Messiah Bible which harkens back to the handcrafted Bibles from medieval times. As an artist, he will discuss the beautiful collection of sixty-six original portraits of Jesus from each book of the Bible. Every Messianic theme from Genesis to Revelation is illuminated in spectacular fashion with a detailed treatise by the artist explaining the theology behind every brushstroke. He will explain both his artistic approach and his passion for the Word.
Does God still act -- still perform miracles -- in ways that you can see and feel? Or are the Bible's miracle stories just ancient history? Our guest puts human hopes and expectations under the searchlight of God's Word, providing insights about miracles. Join us as we are challenged and excited by the unshakable scriptural evidence of a God who acts in the lives of His people.
