Another week has come and gone here in NYC!
Last Sunday I gave a talk on my Miracles book at Central Presbyterian Church’s first Vocare seminar of 2016. Central is the gorgeous church on 64th & Park Avenue that we call home. Pastor Jason Harris is a tremendous preacher and the worship under Seth Ward is spectacular, so come visit some time! In the early part of the 20th century, Central’s pulpit was filled by Harry Emerson Fosdick, who was light years from orthodox in his theology, so we’ve come a long way baby!
On Wednesday I took part in the New York Public Library’s “Author @ the Library” series at their Mid-Manhattan branch, sharing my testimony, along with vignettes of the women in my 7 Women book. I can’t remember the last time I interacted with such an eclectic group of true, blue New Yawkers!
To top things off we had some great moments on the radio show. Ann Coulter called me a brat and (of course) argued with me about Donald Trump; I got a firsthand account of the State of the Union from Dr. Everett Piper, who was there; and I talked to Peter Hitchens, the brother of Christopher Hitchens again! Listen to these or any other past show by going to our podcast page here: www.metaxastalk.com/podcasts/.
Have a great weekend!
This week on The Eric Metaxas Show:
In light of David Bowie’s passing Dr. Greg Thornbury, President of The King’s College, told listeners about Bowie’s 1987 stand for freedom at the Berlin Wall. Eric and author Mel Lawrenz then discussed Mel’s book A Time for Dignity: Crisis and Gospel Today.
Hillsdale College President Larry Arnn spent the next hour talking about how he became Sir Winston Churchill’s official biographer and his book Churchill’s Trial: Winston Churchill and the Salvation of Free Government.
The always “divisive”, annoyingly thin Ann Coulter joined Eric in the studio, calling him a “brat” and weighing in on Trump’s progress getting the GOP nomination.
Oklahoma Wesleyan University President Dr. Everett Piper gave his firsthand account of the State of the Union and shared the story behind his explosive essay “This is Not a Daycare. It’s a University!”
Jeremy Courtney stopped by the studio to discuss the incredible experiences he’s had doing humanitarian work in Iraq with Preemptive Love.
King’s College Professor Terry Mattingly and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Dr. Al Mohler discussed the recent controversy at Wheaton College and the state of Christian higher education.
After Thursday’s action packed GOP debate, Eric spent both hours taking calls from listeners (and giving them mugs!) to find out what they thought about the candidates overall performance.
