Equipped with Chris Brooks, Moody Radio’s newest daily show, is an outstanding resource for Christians who want to grow spiritually, think critically, and live compassionately in their communities. I am honored to be guest hosting the show, which airs from noon until 1 p.m. CDT, each day next week, April 4-8. (I’ll be a guest myself on Friday, April 1.)
We have an exciting line-up of guests who I think will inform and inspire you. Please make plans to tune in!
Monday, April 4 — Joel Richardson
Joel Richardson, author of “The Islamic Anti-Christ” and also a lifelong minister among Muslims in the Middle East.

Joel’s heart is thoroughly missional, with a special love for all the peoples of the Middle East. He travels globally, teaching on the Gospel, living with Biblical Hope, the return of Jesus, and preparing the Church to face the great challenges of our time.
Tuesday, April 5 — Mark Mittelberg
Mark Mittleberg, author of “The Questions Christians Hope No One Will Ask,” has a passion for equipping Christians to defend their faith. He’ll join us to discuss how to build a confident faith, and how do you answer questions like “Didn’t Evolution put God out of a job?” and “How could God allow such evil and suffering?” and “Why do you condemn gays when it’s clear that God made gays and he loves all people the same?”
Mittelberg is a best-selling author and the primary creator of the “Becoming a Contagious Christian” curriculum, which has been translated into more than 20 languages and used to train 1.5 million people around the world.
