    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 


    Author Rob Sinclair joins me this week to talk about his novel: Dance WithThe Enemy and more. 


    Carl Logan was the perfect agent. A loner. No real friends or family. Trained to deal with any situation with cold efficiency, devoid of emotion.


    But Logan isn’t the man he used to be, or the asset he once was. Five months ago his life changed forever when he was captured, tortured and left for dead by Youssef Selim, one of the world’s most violent terrorists.


    When Selim mysteriously reappears in Paris, linked to the kidnapping of America’s Attorney General, Logan smells his chance for revenge.


    Pursuing his man relentlessly, oblivious to the growing trail of destruction that he leaves in his wake, Logan delves increasingly deep into the web of lies and deceit surrounding the kidnapping.


    Finally, he comes to learn just what it means to Dance with the Enemy.

    The Christian Church Gone AWOL

    in Christianity

    A seasoned radio personality, Audrey Russo is Debra's long time, coast-to-coast radio co-host. A prolific blogger (known as "the Blogger Babe"), Audrey is more than just a pretty face within the New York performing arts community. Don't miss her insightful expose of Christian persecution in Muslim majority countries. Learn how Christian victimization today ranges from threats of harm to societal restrictions; property confiscation and extortion to death by beheading (Syria), bombing (North Sumatra), shooting (Nigeria, Pakistan, Somolia, Zanzibar), lynching and burning alive (Pakistan). Make no mistake. Fully one-third of the world's population live where religious-related government restrictions or societal hostilities have risen significantly. Every five minutes, a Christian is murdered for his or her faith. Even beyond Islamic extremists, perpetrators include governments, communities, families, organizations, and even ordinary residents. Sadly, despite clear documentation of religious persecution against Christians by groups as diverse as the Vatican, Open Doors, Pew Research Center, Newsweek, and the Economist, the Christian Church has gone AWOL. How so? By ignoring the brutal facts and, then, failing to function as her brother's keeper. It's about time for the Church to wake up and take a strong stand against Christian persecution. Tune in to learn more.
