daugthe“Daughter of Jerusalem” takes its 21st-century readers on a journey back to the first-century world of a young rabbi named Yeshua—better known to us as Jesus.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — What Aliens Teach Us About God with Travis Perry

unknownbiologicScience fiction often shows aliens as an exaggerated form of human being, which can actually help us understand God.

Tonight’s show is derived from a series of blog posts by a very good friend of mine, Travis Perry. I’m a huge fan of his insight into a variety of things. In particular, this series combined by love of sci-fi aliens with my love for Christ. You may ask, ‘How in the world do aliens, you know, the creatures with the four toes, the one eye, the tentacles, the magical powers, and the spaceships, teach us about God?”

In what I think is simply brilliance, Travis takes the ATTRIBUTES of what we consider ALIEN and shows us how they’re not so ALIEN after all. In fact, the one Being who is truly ALIEN to us is the one who loves us the most, the God of the Bible.

Think we’re drinking the Kool-Aid? Well, join me and listen to this insightful show with Travis and myself. You can call in at 646-668-8485 and press 1 to be live on air. Or, download Stitcher on your mobile device. Follow us on iTunes. Or, click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/10852327.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — The Rogue (Planets Shaken) with Lee W. Brainard

therogue“Men’s hearts shall fail from fear…for the planets of the heavens shall be shaken” (Luke 21:26).

When rookie astronomer Irina Kirilenko discovers a planet-size comet in the Kuiper Belt on a collision course for Mars, she first faces stonewalling from the Minor Planet Center, then coercion and stricture from NASA. They press her to embrace an ingenious reinterpretation of her discovery and ban her from talking about it.

It slowly dawns on her that the government is fostering a massive conspiracy to keep the public oblivious to the truth—Earth is facing an existential threat. Unwilling to be silenced, she recruits fellow astronomer Ariele Serrafe to evaluate her discovery, placing both in the crosshairs of government agents.

Set in a dystopian vision of the near future, The Rogue, the first volume of the Planets Shaken series, weaves the threads of biblical prophecy, ancient history, government conspiracy, and electric universe theory into a thought-provoking, tensely plotted thriller—one that asks us to reconsider the nature of the universe and the destiny of the world

leebriaindardI am an author and a Bible teacher. The Bible is — by far — my favorite book. I read it regularly in the original languages (Greek and Hebrew) and several literal English translations, frequently in the German (usually the Elberfelder) and the Greek OT (the Septuagint), and occasionally in the Latin. The areas of study that fascinate me the most include Bible languages, eschatology (prophecy), apologetics, ancient history (particularly ancient catastrophism), and electric universe cosmology.

Currently my wife, Nita, and I reside in Harvey, ND, where I share in the ministry of the Word at Harvey Gospel Chapel. We have four children, all of whom are married, and ten grandchildren. We live in an older fixer-upper that we have largely remodeled.

My work experience is extremely varied — my brother-in-law once teased me that I should write a book called “101 Occupations.” I have been, among other things, an Airborne Ranger, a cook, a waiter, a meat cutter, a carpenter, a mason tender, a painter, a remodeler, a janitor, a food-service delivery driver, a truck driver, a farm hand, a factory worker in numerous settings, a sawmill hand, a lumber yard hand, a security guard, a car salesman, an insurance salesman, a daytrader, a Jiffy Lube tech, and a propane truck driver. My current job is delivering newspapers. I also designed and built a 3600′ square foot, square-timber log home which we enjoyed for ten years.

I am a man of simple pleasures: backpacking, hiking, campfires, mountains, sunrises and sunsets, thunderstorms, starry skies, northern lights, coffee, dark chocolate, reading, friends, and good conversation. My favorite genres of music include the whisper of the wind in the pines, the call of Canadian geese, the cry of the loon, the bugle of a bull elk, hymns, worship music, and classical music. When I really get a strong itch for adventure, I like to climb mountains — over the years I have managed to climb Mt. Rainier once and Granite Peak in Montana three times. Next up? Maybe a fourteener with my son Noah in Colorado.

Life sayings:
“One short life to be a good soldier; One long eternity to be a fulfilled human being.”
“Eyes wide open, brain engaged, heart on fire.”

The ‘I’ in Politics — The Parker J Cole Show **REBROADCAST**

Parker J Cole BannerOften, the conversation with politics in U. S.  is whether a person is liberal or conservative with further distinctions between being far right, far left, moderate and a whole hosts of other sublabels. If one labels themselves as a Democrat or a Republican, depending on the receiving person’s POV, you’re the enemy, you’re misguided, etc.

But there is an ‘I’ in politics. What does that ‘I’ stand for? According to our guest today, it’s important that we identify where we get principles in politics—what is the fundamental principle in a good political system.

Intrigued? Join me for the conversation with social media political commentator Cody Libolt as we discuss a growing number of Christian who see the ‘I’ in politics and what that means.
