PHIL JOHNSON, president of "Grace To You," the radio & tape ministry of world-renowned radio Bible teacher, author & pastor, DR. JOHN MACARTHUR, will address the theme "BRINGING THE GOSPEL TO A HOSTILE CULTURE".

The story of the Apostle Paul’s sermon on Mars Hill is one of the classic examples Paul’s evangelistic strategy, and it’s a model of how to confront false religion and philosophical skepticism. It's also one of the most-abused sections in all of Scripture.Today all the stress in evangelism is on style and methodology rather than truth and clarity. The conventional wisdom of this generation says we need to “contextualize” the gospel by finding common ground with our culture. We’re told we need to adapt our message as much as possible to the beliefs and preferences of our culture’s dominant philosophies, and win people chiefly by appealing to whatever they already believe and whatever already captures their interest.

In reality (and in contrast), the Apostle Paul was bold and plain-spoken. He was counter-cultural, confrontive, confident, and (by Athenian standards, much less today's standards) closed-minded. He offended a significant number of Athens's intellectual elite, and he walked away from that encounter without winning the admiration of society at large, but with just a small group of converts who followed him.

Phil also maintains "The Spurgeon Archive", the largest collection of Charles Haddon Spurgeon resources on the world wide web.

PASTOR JIM CAPO of the Massapequa Church of God, Massapequa, Long Island, NY (filling in for PHIL JOHNSON, president of "Grace To You" who was previously scheduled to be our guest) will address the theme "THE FEMINIZATION OF EVANGELICALISM".

Today, Pastor Capo will seek to demonstrate how feminists seeking equal authority between men and women in the church and in the home took advantage of the fact that Evangelical Christianity has become numerically dominated by women, and have largely succeeded in feminizing Evangelicalism, even in many denominations and fellowships which are typically identified as "conservative" and "Bible based". Pastor Capo will also address his own personal opposition to the very denomination in which he is ordained, Church of God, Cleveland, TN, over the matter of the ordination of women into the pastorate.

ARMY SPECIALIST BRIAN OTIS & PASTOR JOHN M. OTIS will address the theme of their new book DELIVERED BY ANGELS: GOD's Providence For An American Soldier in Iraq . The book chronicles Brian's year long deployment to Iraq, May 2005-May 2006, during which he truly walked through the valley of the shadow of death on numerous occasions. From a human perspective, Brian should have died several times, but God's mercy and grace were wonderfully displayed towards him. This book demonstrates the personal struggles and challenges that Brian faced as a Christian soldier, dealing with the loss of friends, the prospects of his own death, and the pain of having to kill the enemy. Rarely does the public have the opportunity to look into the soul of a Christian soldier during combat.

The book also chronicles life on the home front for Brian's parents as they had to deal with a son in a dangerous war zone. Brian's father, John M. Otis, is a Presbyterian minister (RPCUS) in Corpus Christi, Texas . Numerous times John would send lengthy emails, seeking to encourage his son from God's Word to remain faithful as a Christian witness and to trust in his God to see him through the challenges. Delivered By Angels: God's Providence For An American Soldier in Iraq is must reading for those who want to be inspired with the great truth that God loves His children and will do amazing things on their behalf.

Just as the best coaches remind their players to master the basics of their sport, Christian couples need to be regularly reminded of the basics of a Christian marriage. This book sets out to provide such reminders. The authors have broken down nineteen areas of marriage by briefly summarizing the Bible’s teaching and offering a series of penetrating questions to help readers take inventory of themselves and their marriage. Each section ends with two recommended resources to dig deeper.

Pastor Crotts is also author of Craftsmen: Skillfully Leading Your Family For Christ and Mighty Men: The Starter's Guide to Leading Your Family .

ROY KIRTON, pastor of Circle of Love Ministry in Copiague, Long Island, NY, and founder of the invaluable ministry "Safe Harbor Mentoring Program," born out of a vision given to Pastor Kirton who began volunteering as a Para-chaplain in 1994, will address the theme: "THE CHRISTIAN OBLIGATION TO PRISON INMATES (Matthew 25:43)".

While teaching a life skills class on a weekly basis in the Nassau County Correctional Facility, Pastor Kirton began to connect with the men that attended in a positive way. The men remained in contact with Pastor Kirton when they went to State facilities. Upon their return home, Pastor Kirton and the members of Circle of Love Ministry worked with these men as they made the transition back to society. Out of this outreach, Safe Harbor was born. The Safe Harbor Mentoring Program derives its name from the hamlet of its origin. The ministry's hometown on Long Island, "Copiague", has as its name a Native American word meaning “safe harbor” .

The program is designed to assist people with a criminal/troubled past, who are being released from prison and need to focus on living socially acceptable and productive lives--some of them for the first time. According to Pastor Kirton, "The cost to families, the judicial system, taxpayers and countless victims has to be reversed...Our culture has to be prepared to turn a blight into a self-sufficient resource..."

Marty was raised in a Jewish home in a very anti-Semitic neighborhood in the Bronx, NY, where as a child he was regularly mocked and beaten for being a Jew. Growing up to hate the name of Jesus Christ even in adulthood because of the false perception he had of what "Christianity" was and who "Christians" were, Marty eventually came to fall in love with the One he once hated after joining his wife at a weekly Bible study led by a Jewish believer in Christ, and embraced Him as his Messiah.

BOB UNGER, ESQ., a Jewish political activist, author & former conservative talk radio host, & ROB MUCHNICK, the U.S. Director of Manhigut Yehudit will address "ARE DISPENSATIONALIST EVANGELICALS NAIVELY SUPPORTING ISRAELI GOVERNMENT ABUSE OF JEWISH CIVIL RIGHTS?"

Should God's proclamation in Genesis 12:2-3 compel Christians to always bless, or support, the Israeli government? Are the the terms "Palestinian" and "Jewish", in reality, historically synonymous? Has there ever, historically, existed an ethnic group identified as "Palestinian" (until the latter half of the 20th century) that did not intend to signify the Jews? Is the Israeli government currently denying Jews of their human and civil rights? These are just some of the questions addressed during this conversation with two Jewish Zionists and political activists who believe many "Pro-Israel" Evangelical Christians, with good intentions, have been mislead into supporting institutions that are significantly harming the Jewish people.
