Each Monday at 7 am ET we invite a professor from Moody Bible Institute to answer our questions about the Bible. Today it's Dr. Jim Coakley. Got a question? Join the conversation: 888-777-6810.
Dr. Dan DeWitt, Director of the Center for Biblical Apologetics and Public Christianity at Cedarville University helps us take a closer look at the recent Gallup poll finding church membership on the decline in the U.S. and how there was actually good news in some of the findings.
Plus, some fun as Engineer Josh joins us for jokes on Just Joshin'!
