Jesus is the Savior of the World, whether we are from the East or the West. However, in their new book, Seeing Jesus From the East, Ravi Zacharias and Abdu Murray show readers how to rediscover the cultural insights often missed when we ignore the Eastern context of the Bible. Monday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Abdu Murray, Senior Vice President of RZIM International Ministries shares a refreshing picture of Jesus, one that appeals to Eastern readers and also penetrates the hearts and minds of postmodern Westerners.
SOF Missions was established in 2011 as a non-profit 501c3 organization by Dr. Damon and Dayna Friedman. Damon, a retired Lt. Colonel, within the Special Operations community, served for 20 years, and he will be our guest on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte on Memorial Day. Damon knows firsthand the challenges warriors face, having served on four combat tours to Iraq and Afghanistan. SOF Missions believes their organization is called to be Freedom Fighters, and their mission is to combat the veteran suicide crisis.
