The Third Jihad

​An American Islamist imam in Washington, D.C. has called for the creation of an Islamic State of North America by 2050. Some people laugh it off as unthinkable. But is it possible? This week on The Land and the Book, Michael Youssef introduces us to The Third Jihad. And Charlie Dyer takes us to Luke 1 for his devotional, “Touched by an Angel.” All ahead this week on The Land and the Book.
