Just a few days before the death of Chuck Colson, I spoke on the phone with Eric Metaxas who was called in suddenly to voice Colson’s BREAKPOINT radio commentary as Chuck was seriously ill. I wanted to talk to Eric about his mentor and friend, but I also wanted to talk to him about his extraordinary address at the 2012 Presidential Prayer Breakfast.
This week, on FIRST PERSON, you’ll hear that interview with Eric. In addition to his gratefulness to Chuck Colson for all that he meant, Eric will give a first hand account of standing next to the President of the United States and delivering the Gospel Truth.
Eric’s book, Jesus Hates Dead Religion, recounting the prayer breakfast experience has also just been published and you can read more about it at EricMextaxas.com.
NEXT WEEK: U.S. Senate Chaplain, Barry Black
