Many years ago I found myself in a series of conversations, mini-debates really, with a devout Christian friend. She was passionate and resolute in her faith. Me… not so much. Don’t get me wrong, my “faith” seemed firm at the time, it was just that I didn’t really know what I believed or why. As we spoke, she could see that I wasn’t being moved by what she was telling me. (It turns out I can dig my heals in pretty good when I need to.) So, as an act of friendship and sanity, she offered me a book to read, The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel.
I read that book and it impressed me. The author, a guy from Chicago (my hometown), was an avowed atheist, who set out to do a journalistic hack job on the Bible. In the process, he was surprised to discover the truths of Holy Scripture and thus began a transformation of his life and work. Lee Strobel went on to write several more books, including God’s Outrageous Claims, The Case for Faith, and Surviving a Spiritual Mismatch in Marriage.
Now, more than 10 years after my friend offered me his book, it is our privilege to speak with Lee Strobel live on the air, tomorrow at 9:00 AM (Eastern). Lee has a new book out, his first novel, called The Ambition. We are going to talk to him about that and of course I have a long list of questions… If you do too, please offer them in the comment section below or send us an email. We’ll get them on the air. We’ll be taking your calls as well. (866) 423-9578 to get on the air with us.
Your Family Matters with Michael & Gina airs at 9:00 AM Eastern on WLQV AM 1500 Detroit. It can be heard live on the Internet at www.FaithTalk1500.com. The show is also rebroadcast every Saturday evening at 8:00 PM.
