Nabeel Qureshi – The Resurrection

It was just a few weeks ago that we featured author and apologist Nabeel Qureshi on FIRST PERSON to tell of his journey from being a devout, practicing Muslim to Christianity. Nabeel is the author of Seeking Allah, Finding JesusYou can go back in the audio archive by clicking on the “listen” button above to mid-March and listen to his exciting faith story.

We’ve invited Nabeel back on this Easter weekend to specifically talk about the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This topic was a crucial part of convincing Nabeel of the truth of the claims of Christ, so his explanation of the facts can help us answer the questions people ask.

Thanks for listening. Be sure to leave a comment on our Facebook page,

NEXT WEEK:  Dan Cura of Far East Broadcasting Company in the Philippines.

Michael Card

card-perspectiveLike all good friends do, I like to check in with Michael Card once in a while, just see and hear first-hand what God is doing through his life. There was a time when we did that on the radio together each week on the IN THE STUDIO radio program, direct from Michael’s studio in Franklin, TN. Even though the visits are less frequent now, they are no less sweet as we pick right up where we left off.

This week on FIRST PERSON, I return to Michael’s studio in the wooded hills of Tennessee and we sit down for a conversation about his life and ministry today.  He’s still writing and singing great songs, but Mike has also added writer and Bible teacher to the list of things he does well (actually, he’s been writing/teaching and calling all of us to know God better through the study of the Word for a long time.)  He’s just completed his sweep of all four Gospels with his book on John, which will be released later this year.  He’s also finishing a full CD of music to accompany John, something he’s done with all four books on the Gospels.  Please take the time to learn more about Michael Card, his music, his books, and his Biblical Imagination series and tours of the Holy Land here.

Oh yes, Mike is also a new grandfather! Please listen and enjoy the conversation this week.

NEXT WEEK:  Nabeel Qureshi on the resurrection of Jesus Christ

The Barrick Family

barrick-perspectiveOn November 5, 2006, while driving home from church, the Barrick family was struck head-on by a drunk driver going 80 miles per hour. Andy, Linda, 15 year old Jen and 11 year old Josh sustained life-threatening injuries. Their recovery has been a long and difficult journey, but God’s grace and healing has been evident every step of the way.

You’ll want to listen to their testimony on FIRST PERSON this week as the Barricks, describe how God has spared their lives, healed their bodies, and proven His power over and over again. You learn how Jen, in particular, who was in a coma for 5 weeks and had severe traumatic brain injuries and multiple skull fractures, woke up praying out loud and singing praise songs continuously.

The Barrick family has started a ministry called HOPE OUT LOUD, and you can read much more of their story here. You’ll also learn more about the book, MIRACLE FOR JEN, as well as other ministry resources.
