Linda Steinberg Interview

Wow, what a fascinating interview!   You'll be amazed at Linda's faith through so many challenges!   Before the interview you'll enjoy the music of Jonathan Settel, Corry Bell & Lev Shelo, Ray Chernoff, Barry & Batya Segal, Sue Samuel, the Schleps and Ted Pearce.

After 25 years in advertising sales and Internet marketing Linda Steinberg was prompted to write "Christ Proclaimed: a Jewish Believers journey with God". One hundred and forty plus pages later and still growing readers from around the world in many different countries have asked her numerous times how did she survive a childhood with a Munchhausen mother? How did she survive being stalked and raped at the age of 15 by a 19 year old male adoptee from a good Jewish home? How did she survive being sent away like a criminal to what was then referred to as an unwed mother's home?  How did she survive holding a child in for over an hour because the one labor room was occupied, while it was over 3 minutes before her child took his first breath.

How did she survive? God was waiting for her to turn to Him. Patient for His child to turn to His son the Lord of Lords, Yeshua and begin to write.

Linda is the writer of "Christ Proclaimed". Over the years her pages have been read by numerous people, too many to count.

Charlie Gardner Interview

Today's show featured a pre-recorded article with author and journalist Charles Gardner. 
Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Charles came to England in 1970, at the age of 21, to visit his half-Jewish grandmother. He ended up staying, though South Africa is still home to him.
He became a committed believer shortly afterward this visit through the influence of a South African friend, through athletics. He worshipped at All Souls, Langham Place, a famous church in central London, for the rest of the 70's. He had a 'spiritual mother' who led the class for new believers, and she always referred to herself as a 'completed Jew'. One of the first jobs he accepted at the church was to write to some of their missionaries, and this included a couple who worked with CMJ (Church's Ministry to the Jewish people) among the Falasha Jews of Ethiopia. Charles supposed he had always had something of an understanding about Messianic issues, but this has gone much deeper in recent years through involvement in a Prayer for Israel group.

In 2010, while on holiday he had a strong word from God about being a 'Helper of Israel' and, being a journalist by profession, he eventually realized God wanted him to write a book answering the question as to why the Jews are so important to him. It's called Israel the Chosen, available on Amazon. Having just recently taken early retirement, at the age of 64, he intends to continue writing. He would love to see his longtime vision fulfilled —that of launching a new UK national newspaper reporting and interpreting the news (especially on the Middle East) from a biblical perspective.

Great music also -- from Beckah Shae, Barry & Batya Segal, Sue Samuel, Lamb, and John Waller.
