This Week's Guest...

Dr. Tracy McKenzie

Few of us give any thought to President’s Day which is right around the February corner. So to go a little deeper into the life of one of our greatest Presidents, Abraham Lincoln, I’ve invited Dr. Tracy McKenzie (click) to join me in the studio for a conversation about Lincoln’s view on democracy, patriotism, and divine sovereignty.Tracy-McKenzie-Small
