We start the hour by taking a look at some of the stories making headlines. We then turn our sites on the Middle East and hear about the great work one ministry is doing to bring the Good News to that part of the world. We round out the hour hearing from a civil rights activist who has been changing hearts and minds for year. He will share his thoughts on affirmative action. Join us and learn how to think critically and biblically.
This hour we open the phones so we can take any question you have on Christianity or the Bible. Do babies go to Heaven? Can you lose your salvation? Did Jesus ever sin? These are the kinds of questions that will be answered so call in early as the phones are lit the entire hour. Don’t miss this fascinating and fast-paced conversation.
Tom Doyle fell in love with the Middle East on his first Biblical tour of the Holy Land. In 1995, he became an official tour guide for the state of Israel and developed a passion for ministering to the Israeli people, Arabs and Jews alike. Tom felt called into full-time ministry there in 2001. Tom and his wife JoAnn began working in the heart of the Islamic world shortly after the terrorist attacks of September 11. His ministry to pastors in this region has opened many valuable doors for him to build key relationships in places like Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Syria and Palestinian territories of Israel. In 2001, Tom became the Middle East Director for e3 Partners and then in 2017 launched a new ministry called Uncharted. Tom is a master storyteller with several books highlighting God’s miraculous work among the Muslim people. His best known books include Dreams and Visions (2012), Killing Christians (2015), and Standing in the Fire (2017).
Robert L. Woodson, Sr. founded the Woodson Center in 1981 to help residents of low-income neighborhoods address the problems of their communities. A former civil rights activist, he has headed the National Urban League Department of Criminal Justice, and has been a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Foundation for Public Policy Research. Referred to by many as “godfather” of the neighborhood empowerment movement, for more than four decades, Woodson has had a special concern for the problems of youth. In response to an epidemic of youth violence that has afflicted urban, rural and suburban neighborhoods alike, Woodson has focused much of the Woodson Center’s activities on an initiative to establish Violence-Free Zones in troubled schools and neighborhoods throughout the nation. He is an early MacArthur “genius” awardee and the recipient of the 2008 Bradley Prize, the Presidential Citizens Award, and a 2008 Social Entrepreneurship Award from the Manhattan Institute.
