Jeff Iorg, President of Gateway Seminary in Ontario, CA joins Mornings with Eric and Brigitte on New Year’s Day to talk about shadow Christians, who work in the margins, in the shadows created by the spotlight shining on others.

It's hard for kids to make sense of a book as big and complex as the Bible. That's why we often just focus on familiar stories like David and Goliath, Noah's Ark and Zacchaeus. But don't kids need more than snapshots of the Bible? They need to see how the whole Bible fits together to tell one amazing story. New Year’s Day on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Veggie Tales creator, Phil Vischer talks about his lifelong passion project, a kids' bible for a new generation, the Laugh and Learn Bible for Kids.
