Welcome to The Shaun Tabatt Show! In this episode I speak Tom Horn about his documentary film Inhuman: The Next and Final Phase of Man is Here and his book Forbidden Gates: How Genetics, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Synthetic Biology, Nanotechnology, & Human Enhancement Herald The Dawn Of Techno-Dimensional Spiritual Warfare.
About the Film: This film is not fiction or a mockudrama but a new investigative documentary from the internationally acclaimed team at SkyWatch TV. INHUMAN travels the globe to unveil for the first time how breakthrough advances in science, technology, and philosophy -including cybernetics, bioengineering, nanotechnology,machine intelligence, and synthetic biology - are poised to create mind-boggling game-changes to everything we have known until now about Homosapiens.
As astonishing technological developments push the frontiers of humanity towards far-reaching morphological transformation (which promises in the very near future to redefine what it means to be human), an intellectual and fast-growing cultural movement known as transhumanism intends the use of these powerful new fields of science and technology as tools that will radically redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring, and even perhaps-as Professor Joel Garreau, Lincoln Professor of Law, claims- our immortal souls.
The technological, cultural, and metaphysical shift now underway unapologetically forecasts a new future dominated by a new species of unrecognizably superior humans, and applications under study now to make this dream a reality are being funded by thousands of government and private research facilities around the world.
As viewers will learn, this includes rewriting human genetics, combining human and animal DNA, and interfacing our brains with strong artificial intelligence systems. As a result, new modes of perception between things visible and invisible are expected to challenge bioethics in ways that are historically, sociologically and theologically unprecedented.
Without comprehending what is quickly approaching in related disciplines of research and development, vast numbers of indiviuals could soon be paralyzed by the most fantastic - and widespread - implications. The destiny of each individual - as well as the future of their families - depends on their knowledge of this new paradigm, an extraordinary time in the earth's history already being called the "Hybrid Age".
About the Book: While Forbidden Gates includes fresh insights for traditional, tried and true methods of overcoming darkness, it also unveils for the first time how breakthrough advances in science, technology, and philosophy—including cybernetics, bio-engineering, nanotechnology, machine intelligence, synthetic biology, and transhumanism—will combine to create mind-boggling game-changes to everything you have ever known about spiritual warfare.
In recent years, astonishing technological developments have pushed the frontiers of humanity toward far-reaching morphological transformation that promises in the very near future to redefine what it means to be human. An international, intellectual and fast-growing cultural movement known as transhumanism intends the use of genetics, robotics, artificial intelligence and nanotechnology (GRIN technologies) as tools that will radically redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring, and even perhaps, as Joel Garreau in his bestselling book Radical Evolution claims, our very souls. The technological, cultural, and metaphysical shift now under way unapologetically forecasts a future dominated by this new species of unrecognizably superior humans, and applications under study now to make this dream reality are being funded by thousands of government and private research facilities around the world. As the reader will learn, this includes among other things rewriting human DNA and combining men with beasts, a fact that some university studies and transhumanists believe will not only alter our bodies and souls but could ultimately open a door to contact with unseen intelligence.
As a result, new modes of perception between things visible and invisible are expected to challenge the Church in ways that are historically and theologically unprecedented. Without comprehending what is quickly approaching in related disciplines of research and development, vast numbers of believers could be paralyzed by the most fantastic—and most far reaching—supernatural implications. The destiny of each individual—as well as the future of their family—will depend on their knowledge of the new paradigm and their preparedness to face it head on.

Welcome to The Shaun Tabatt Show! In this episode I speak with Mary-Kathryn about her new album Wonders in the Deep.
About the Album: On her fifth album, Wonders in the Deep, Mary-Kathryn blends elements of soft pop, New Age and folk with world music influences as diverse as the continents to create a spiritual amalgam that transcends musical boundaries. Delving deep into the world music realm, Mary-Kathryn paints word pictures on an aural canvas with exotic instrumentation, adroit production, and lyrics that stir the spirit and excite the imagination. But as one Billboard Magazine reviewer so aptly put it, “the most affecting instrument…is Mary-Kathryn’s lovely voice.”
Throughout her music there are themes that frequently appear including love, peace, faith, prayer, worship and angels. In addition to singing English lyrics, on previous recordings Mary-Kathryn has sung in Hebrew as well as the Sou-Sou language from Benin, West Africa. At times Mary-Kathryn sings “in the spirit” where her vocalizations are either sounds or unknown languages although they variously resemble Mid-Eastern, Gaelic, French or American Indian voices. “As with any language that is sung, you don’t have to understand it to enjoy it,” she explains.

Welcome to The Shaun Tabatt Show! In this episode I speak with Caspar McCloud about his book Unmasking the Future: A Guide to End-Time Prophecies and Today's Headlines.
About the Book: The truth is out there... only if you are able to see it through the lens of the Holy Scriptures.
Wars, rumors of war, famine, pestilences and earthquakes are increasing. Have we actually entered into unprecedented times? Legends of Nephilim giants with supernatural powers did they really exist? Is there any truth to the theories of ancient astronauts existing as alien beings from other planets? Could they actually be inner-dimensional entities from the Second Heavens? Is this part of Jacob's Trouble and the coming Great Deception of the Holy Scripture forewarned about? Are we in fact nearing the time of the end? Is there a connection here unfolding today with the movement and the information Jesus Christ of Nazareth stated about his return being as like in the Days of Noah? Can you face the future without entertaining the spirit of fear? With this book we reference what the Lord says that will give you hope, courage, and faith so you can discern the times ahead in confidence and without fear because the truth makes us free!

Welcome to The Shaun Tabatt Show! In this episode I speak with Gary Wilkerson about his book David Wilkerson: The Cross, the Switchblade, and the Man Who Believed (Zondervan, 2014).
About the Book: This is the story of David Wilkerson, the man who believed against the odds that God could do great things in the rejected and ignored of New York City, who refused to give up on those on the streets even when they had given up on themselves, and who saw in the eyes of the drug addicts and gang members what others failed to see—the love of Jesus Christ.
But who was David Wilkerson? Many Christians don’t really know. More often than not, we saw the fruit of his faith in God rather than the man himself.
When Wilkerson moved to New York from rural Pennsylvania in 1958 to confront the gangs who ran the streets, he was a skinny, 120-pound man. After the initial publicity that brought him face to face with some of the most dangerous young men of the city, he largely flew under the radar of the media, using the Word of God and a bit of tough love to help men and women of the street escape the destructive spiral of drugs and violence. Wilkerson was always the real deal, full of passion and conviction, not interested in what others said was the “right” or political thing to do.
Wilkerson later founded the Times Square Church, now a non-denominational mega-church of 8,000 members, to this day a crossroads for those battling sin, drugs, and pornography, and a place where the message of Christ is discussed. He created the faith-based program Teen Challenge to wean addicts off drugs, and then World Challenge, dedicated since its beginning to promoting and spreading the Gospel throughout the world. Both now have branches worldwide, continuing the work that God began in the life of one man who believed
David Wilkerson was a man of faith who trusted God would give him what he needed to enter a world of crime and killing. He was a man of conviction who took the dream God gave him and marched forward without ever looking back. And he was a man of vision who could not be shaken from his beliefs—sometimes even when counseled otherwise. David Wilkerson was the preacher of New York City.
About the Author: Gary Wilkerson is the President of World Challenge, an international mission organization that was founded by his father, David Wilkerson. He is also the lead pastor of The Springs Church, which he and others launched in 2009 and has grown rapidly by God's grace. Gary travels nationally and internationally to conduct conferences for pastors, missionaries and Christian workers and to oversee mission ventures including church plants, orphanages, health clinics and feeding programs among the poor and unreached people of the world. Gary and his wife, Kelly, have four children and live in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

About the Book: 1 out of 25 Americans has had a near-death experience. Do they reveal the Heaven of the Bible?
All of us long to know what life after death will be like. Bestselling author John Burke is no exception. In Imagine Heaven, he compares more than one hundred gripping stories of near-death experiences (NDEs) to what Scripture says about our biggest questions of Heaven: Will I be myself? Will I see friends and loved ones? What will Heaven look like? What is God like? What will we do forever? What about children and pets?
Burke shows how the common experiences shared by thousands of near-death survivors--including doctors, college professors, bank presidents, people of all ages and cultures, and even blind people--point to the exhilarating picture of Heaven promised in the Bible.
This thrilling journey into the afterlife will make you feel like you've been there, forever changing the way you view the life to come--and the way you live your life today. You'll discover Heaven is even more amazing than you've ever imagined

Welcome to The Shaun Tabatt Show! In this episode I speak with Jann Gray about her book Illuminated Journaling: Giving Creative Expression to Your Faith.
About the Book: Illuminated Journaling is written to challenge Christ Followers to stretch the boundaries of how they have typically studied God's Word so they might experience a deeper, richer and more personal relationship with God by lending authentic and creative expression to their faith. If the Bible is God's introduction of Himself to His children, a love letter to His followers and an instruction book for living a life pleasing to Him.
The practice of illuminated journaling provides a tangible way for us to communicate back to Him that we have heard His voice, that we are in love with Him too and perhaps, most importantly, that we want to give a gift back to Him that is filled with genuine praise and appreciation for Who He is and what He has done for us.
