Friends — I’m on the road headed to Hershey, PA, where tonight I’ll speak about Wilberforce at a Pennsylvania Family Institute event. Then I’ll watch the rest of the Mets game, of course! On Sunday I’ll preach and sign books at the Church of the Apostles in Atlanta, GA. If you can’t be there, there’s a live (10:30 AM) broadcast at apostles.org. Then I fly to Houston! You can see my full schedule here.
Oh, here’s an especially enjoyable interview I did with Forbes magazine, titled “Miracles Man: Metaxas vs. Closed Minds & a Closed Universe.” Check it out!
And this week on the radio program, we got into many issues, including the plight of women in China, reconciling gun culture with Christian faith, and of course the GOP debate! And I hosted a conversation with rapper and #1 Billboard artist Andy Mineo! He told me about his faith and musical tastes (he listens to Berlioz!) and his crew dubbed me “Easy E”. Fo realz yo…
This week on The Eric Metaxas Show:
Reggie Littlejohn, founder and President of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, spoke about her work to expose and bring an end to forced abortion, gendercide, and sexual slavery in China.
CalTech astrophysicist Hugh Ross talked to Eric about his organization, Reasons to Believe, which aims to demonstrate the cohesiveness of scientific discovery and with Christian faith. Trust me, it was mind-blowing.
King’s College’s first lady and vice president Dr. Kimberly Thornbury shared an unusual miracle story that Eric wrote about in his book, Miracles.
John Burke, whose book Imagine Heaven reached the #1 spot on Amazon.com, talked about some of the near-death experiences depicted in the book and what they reveal about the “other side.”
Cam Edwards, radio host for the NRA and The Blaze, discussed his new book, Heavy Lifting (co-authored with Jim Geraghty), and how it’s time for modern men to grow up.
Hip-hop/rap talent Andy Mineo came by the studio with his crew and talked about his smash hit album, Uncomfortable (recently dubbed the #1 independent album in the country). Eric gained some mad street cred in the process.
John Zmirak, editor at The Stream, gave a rundown of Wednesday’s presidential debate and presented an analysis of the evening.
In the show’s second hour, Eric took calls from listeners, fielding comments and questions on everything from the GOP debate to the show itself.
Abigail Disney, grandniece of Walt Disney, discussed her provocative new film, Armor of Light. Joining Eric and Abigail was Reverend Rob Schenk, the subject of the movie and a clergyman to top-ranking DC political figures.
Grammy-nominated Christian singer Natalie Grant closed the week with Eric talking about her upcoming album Be One!
