It's an honor to welcome Bill Johnson back to The Shaun Tabatt Show to talk about his new book Raising Giant-Killers: Releasing Your Child's Divine Destiny through Intentional Parenting.

About the Book:  As children grow and experience life, they face "giants" in many forms--the hurts, struggles, fears and temptations of the world that seduce countless young people away from their divine call to represent Jesus in both purity and power. It is vital for parents to train children to defeat these giants--to become giant-killers. 

With honesty, humor and keen biblical insight, bestselling authors Bill and Beni Johnson offer practical tools for becoming a Spirit-led parent. Drawing examples from Scripture and their own experience, they show you how to maintain a strong relationship with your children while also upholding discipline, developing character and instilling in them the desire for eternal significance.

In these pages you will discover how to support their uniqueness, gifting and strengths as you help them think through the tough questions: Why am I here? What is God's purpose for me? How do I fulfill it? You will also be encouraged to face and destroy your own giants, knowing that your example will become your children's inheritance. Let this book guide you to raise giant-killers--children empowered to make a difference, not only in their lives but in the world.

About the Authors: Bill Johnson is the senior leader of Bethel Church in Redding, California. A fifth-generation pastor with a rich heritage in the power of the Spirit, he is the bestselling author of When Heaven Invades Earth.

I'm honored to welcome Sam Storms back to The Shaun Tabatt Show to share about his helpful new book The Language of Heaven: Crucial Questions About Speaking in Tongues.

About the Book:  Few other issues have separated the church more than the issue of tongues.  Sam Storms focuses on this controversial subject with his signature insights to theology and the gifts of the spirit. What does the gift giver say about the gift He gave?
 
Storms seeks to bring balance to this subject in The Language of Heaven as he wrestles with this sensitive issue experientially as well as theologically. He ultimately provides a platform to allow God to speak for Himself as he addresses every text of Scripture on the subject and engages with every theological issue that speaking in tongues provokes. As a pastor, Storms knows the questions that the typical churchgoer is asking and provides clear and accessible answers to them all, including:

  • Is the gift of tongues for every Christian or only some?
  • How does the gift of tongues operate in the life of the believer individually in private practice?
  • How does the gift of tongues operate in the corporate assembly of God’s church?
  • How is the Christian edified and strengthened by praying in tongues?
  • How do I pray for the gift and prepare my heart to receive it?

You can overcome the arguments, fears, and anxieties related to this spiritual gift. Remember, God gives only good gifts, and it is His intention that His church utilize all that He has provided so that we might experience all that He is.

About the Author:  Sam has spent 39 years in ministry as a pastor, professor and author. He was visiting Associate Professor of Theology at Wheaton College from 2000–2004, and is currently Lead Pastor for Preaching and Vision at Bridgeway Church in Oklahoma City. He has authored 22 books and founded Enjoying God Ministries. He’s a graduate of The University of Oklahoma (B.A.), Dallas Theological Seminary (Th.M) and The University of Texas (Ph.D.). He and his wife Ann have been married for 40 years and are the parents of two grown daughters and have four grandchildren. On a more personal level, Sam loves baseball, books, movies, and anything to do with the Oklahoma Sooners.

I'm honored to welcome Blake Healy back to The Shaun Tabatt show to share about his latest book Profound Good: See God Through the Lens of His Love (Charisma House, 2019).

About the Book:  From the time Blake Healy was a small child, he has seen angels, demons, and other spiritual things. He sees them with his naked eyes, as vividly and clearly as anything else. Everyplace he goes, every person he meets, every day that goes by, he sees in the spirit.

After thirty years of seeing in the spirit, one thing has consistently been the most painful for him to see. It is not when he sees someone trapped in demonic oppression. It is not when he sees the gaping wounds of emotional trauma. It is when he sees the goodness of God go unclaimed by His people.

In this book, Healy takes readers on a journey of rediscovering the goodness of God. It fills the churches we visit every week. It moves across the sea from nation to nation. All we have to do is learn how to see it and receive it, and then we will watch every corner of the world be completely transformed by the power of His profound good.

About the Author:  Blake K. Healy is one of the senior team members at Bethel Church of Atlanta in Georgia. He is also the director of the Bethel Atlanta School of Supernatural Ministry. He lives in Peachtree City, Georgia, with his wife, April, and their four wonderful children: Haydon, Finnley, November, and Ender.

In The Future of Everything, William Boekestein encourages us to allow our thoughts on the end times to be guided by God's Word. While combing the Scriptures to find direction related to subjects like death, the millennial kingdom, the return of Christ, the resurrection, judgment, heaven, and hell, Boekestein helps us cultivate a vision for the future that impacts our walk before God's face today.

I'm honored to welcome Aaron Dignan to the show to talk about his latest book Brave New Work. His timely ideas are going to shape the way organizations run for the next decade and beyond.

About the Book:  When fast-scaling startups and global organizations get stuck, they call Aaron Dignan. In this book, he reveals his proven approach for eliminating red tape, dissolving bureaucracy, and doing the best work of your life.

He’s found that nearly everyone, from Wall Street to Silicon Valley, points to the same frustrations: lack of trust, bottlenecks in decision making, siloed functions and teams, meeting and email overload, tiresome budgeting, short-term thinking, and more.

Is there any hope for a solution? Haven’t countless business gurus promised the answer, yet changed almost nothing about the way we work?

That’s because we fail to recognize that organizations aren’t machines to be predicted and controlled. They’re complex human systems full of potential waiting to be released.

Dignan says you can’t fix a team, department, or organization by tinkering around the edges. Over the years, he has helped his clients completely reinvent their operating systems—the fundamental principles and practices that shape their culture—with extraordinary success.

Imagine a bank that abandoned traditional budgeting, only to outperform its competition for decades. An appliance manufacturer that divided itself into 2,000 autonomous teams, resulting not in chaos but rapid growth. A healthcare provider with an HQ of just 50 people supporting over 14,000 people in the field—that is named the “best place to work” year after year... And even a team that saved $3 million per year by canceling one monthly meeting.

Their stories may sound improbable, but in Brave New Work you’ll learn exactly how they and other organizations are inventing a smarter, healthier, and more effective way to work. Not through top-down mandates, but through a groundswell of autonomy, trust, and transparency.

Whether you lead a team of ten or ten thousand, improving your operating system is the single most powerful thing you can do. The only question is, are you ready?

About the Author:  Aaron Dignan is the founder of The Ready, an organization design and transformation firm that helps institutions like Johnson & Johnson, Charles Schwab, Kaplan, Microsoft, Lloyds Bank, Citibank, Edelman, Airbnb, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, and charity: water change the way they work. He is a co-founder of responsive.org, an investor in purpose-driven startups, and a friend to misfit toys. He lives in Colorado with his wife and son.

Today, I'm excited to welcome the one and only Michael Heiser back to The Shaun Tabatt Show. We're going to be diving into the fascinating topic of angels and look at questions like:

  • Do angels have wings?
  • Is there biblical support for the idea of guardian angels?
  • Do human souls transform into angels when people die?

His new book Angels: What the Bible Really Says About God’s Heavenly Host, answers these questions and so much more.

About the Book:  Everyone knows that angels have wings, usually carry harps, and that each of us has our own personal guardian angel, right? We all have some preconceptions about angels from movies, television shows, and other media, but you might be surprised to know that a lot of those notions aren't based on anything from the Bible. If you read Luke 1:26–38 and imagine the angel Gabriel standing before Mary with neatly folded white wings, you're not getting that picture from anything the Bible itself says.

What the Bible really says about angels is overlooked or filtered through popular myths. This book was written to help change that. It's a book about the loyal members of God's heavenly host, and while most people associate them with the word "angel," that's just one of many terms the Bible uses for supernatural beings. 

In The Unseen Realm, Michael Heiser opened the eyes of thousands to seeing the Bible through the supernatural worldview of the ancient world it was written in. In his latest book, Angels, Dr. Heiser reveals what the Bible really says about God's supernatural servants. Heiser focuses on loyal, holy heavenly beings because the Bible has a lot more to say about them than most people suspect. Most people presume all there is to know about angels is what has been passed on in Christian tradition, but in reality, that tradition is quite incomplete and often inaccurate.

Angels is not guided by traditions, stories, speculations, or myths about angels. Heiser's study is grounded in the terms the Bible itself uses to describe members of God's heavenly host; he examines the terms in their biblical context while drawing on insights from the wider context of the ancient Near Eastern world.

The Bible's view on heavenly beings begins with Old Testament terms but then moves into literature from the Second Temple period―Jewish writings from around the 5th century BC to the 1st century AD. This literature from the time between the Old Testament and the New Testament influenced the New Testament writers in significant ways. With that important background established, the book focuses on what the New Testament tells us about God's holy ones. Finally, the book reflects on common misconceptions about angels and addresses why the topic is still important and relevant for Christians today.

About the Author:  Michael Heiser is a scholar in the fields of biblical studies and the ancient Near East, and he is a Scholar-in-Residence at Faithlife, the makers of Logos Bible Software. Michael has an MA in Ancient History from the University of Pennsylvania, and he has an MA in Hebrew Studies and a PhD in Hebrew Bible and Semitic Languages from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has published widely in scholarly journals and popular periodicals such as Bible Study Magazine, and he teaches ancient languages online at MEMRA.

I'm honored to welcome designer and TED star Ingrid Fetell Lee to The Shaun Tabatt Show to talk about her groundbreaking research on the ability of small changes in our surroundings to create extraordinary happiness in our lives.

About the Book:  Have you ever wondered why we stop to watch the orange glow that arrives before sunset, or why we flock to see cherry blossoms bloom in spring? Is there a reason that people -- regardless of gender, age, culture, or ethnicity -- are mesmerized by baby animals, and can't help but smile when they see a burst of confetti or a cluster of colorful balloons. 

We are often made to feel that the physical world has little or no impact on our inner joy. Increasingly, experts urge us to find balance and calm by looking inward -- through mindfulness or meditation -- and muting the outside world. But what if the natural vibrancy of our surroundings is actually our most renewable and easily accessible source of joy? 

In Joyful, designer Ingrid Fetell Lee explores how the seemingly mundane spaces and objects we interact with every day have surprising and powerful effects on our mood. Drawing on insights from neuroscience and psychology, she explains why one setting makes us feel anxious or competitive, while another fosters acceptance and delight -- and, most importantly, she reveals how we can harness the power of our surroundings to live fuller, healthier, and truly joyful lives.

About the Author:  Ingrid Fetell Lee is a designer and the founder of the blog The Aesthetics of Joy. She has been featured as an expert on design and joy by outlets such as the New York TimesWired, PRI's Studio 360, CBC's Spark, and Fast Company, and her 2018 TED talk received a standing ovation. Lee was formerly Design Director at global innovation firm IDEO, and was a founding faculty member in the Products of Design program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She holds a Master's in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute and a Bachelor's in English and Creative Writing from Princeton University.

Bestselling author Joel Richardson returns to the show to share about his and Nathan Graves' new book The Mystery of Catastrophe: Understanding God's Redemptive Purposes for the Global Disasters of the Last Days.

About the Book:
  Never in the history of the church has there been greater opportunity and greater ability to fully engage each catastrophe God brings. God is moving in the world in amazing ways. He determines the times and places of the nations and peoples of the earth. If God is the initiator of global disasters and wars and they are not random and purposeless acts, we should try to understand why they might be happening rather than ignore or oppose them.

In the Mystery of Catastrophe, you will learn to view catastrophes in an entirely new light. God uses natural and man-made disasters as his primary means of driving people to geographic locations of his choosing for the times of his choosing, to specifically position them to hear and believe in the one and only true God and salvation through his Son, Jesus Christ. When Turkey opened the floodgates and allowed over a million refugees from the Syrian conflict and greater Middle East to pour into the Balkans toward western Europe many churches jumped at the opportunity to reach out to the hundreds of thousands of refugees who were pouring through the region. It seems that God is setting the stage for the prophecy to be fulfilled, that the gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come (Matthew 24:14).

Regardless as to how one feels about the Muslim refugee crisis, it is clear that followers of Jesus are called to share the gospel with all people. You will learn to see gospel opportunities when many others see only chaos. The closer we approach the time of Jesus' return, the more natural and man-made disasters and calamities we will see. So also then will gospel opportunities increase if we have eyes to see them. The Mystery of Catastrophe will help you recognize what God is doing in the midst of the many storms that are even now gathering on the horizon.

About the Author:  Joel Richardson is a New York Times bestselling author, filmmaker, and teacher. Joel lives in the United States with his wife and five children. With a special love for all the peoples of the Middle East, Joel travels globally, preparing the Church for the great challenges of our time, teaching on the gospel, living with biblical hope, the return of Jesus. He is the author, editor, director, or producer of several books and documentaries, and is the host of the popular online Christian program, the Underground.

I've been so eager to share my conversation with former US Navy SEAL, New York Times bestselling author, and entrepreneur Brandon Webb! His new book Mastering Fear: A Navy SEAL's Guide is on my list of the top 5 books that have impacted me most in 2018. It's truly a must read!

About the Book: Brandon Webb has run life-threatening missions in the world's worst trouble spots, whether that meant jumping out of airplanes, taking down hostile ships on the open sea, or rolling prisoners in the dead of night in the mountains of Afghanistan. As a Navy SEAL, he learned how to manage the natural impulse to panic in the face of terrifying situations. As media CEO and national television commentator, he has learned how to apply those same skills in civilian life. 

Drawing on his experiences in combat and business, along with colorful anecdotes from his vast network of super-achiever friends from astronauts to billionaires, Webb shows how people from all walks of life can stretch and transcend their boundaries and learn to use their fears as fuel to achieve more than they ever thought possible. "Fear can be a set of manacles, holding you prisoner," writes Webb. "Or it can be a slingshot, catapulting you on to greatness."

The key, says Webb, is not to fight fear or try to beat it back, but to embrace and harness it. In the process, rather than being your adversary, your fear becomes a secret weapon that allows you to triumph in even the most adverse situations. In Mastering Fear, Webb and his bestselling coauthor John David Mann break this transformation down into five practical steps, creating a must-read manual for anyone looking for greater courage and mastery in their lives.

About the Author: Brandon Webb is a former US Navy SEAL, New York Times bestselling author, and founder and CEO of Hurricane Group, a media and ecommerce business focused on military entertainment, news, and monthly clubs. His titles include The Red CircleBenghazi: The Definitive ReportThe Killing School, and Total Focus.

It's an honor to welcome bestselling author Levi Lusko to the show to share about his life-changing new book I Declare War: Four Keys to Winning the Battle with Yourself (Thomas Nelson, 2018).

About the Book:  Whether you recognize it or not, you're at war with yourself. There's anxiety. Selfishness. Self-sabotaging tendencies. Narcissism. The black dog of depression. The inability to do the great things you long to do because you spend so many hours mindlessly drifting through the internet.

It is war, but all is not lost. You can win—if you choose to engage.

In I Declare War, Levi Lusko candidly shares about his struggles with moodiness, bullying, suicidal thoughts, night terrors, and difficulty managing himself. He identifies four weapons you have at your disposal—thoughts, words, behaviors, and power—and illustrates how to use them to achieve ongoing victory. These practical tools from God’s Word will help you learn to

  • retaliate against your anxiety by filling your heart with truth and making it inhospitable to terror
  • stop being victimized by your bad behaviors and become the victor you were born to be 
  • overcome self-imposed isolation by learning to think right so you can live right
  • spare your family unnecessary heartache by confronting your dysfunction so they don’t have to

It’s time to stop being your own worst enemy. Declare war and become the person, the spouse, the parent, and the leader God intended you to be.

About the Author:  Levi Lusko is the author of the bestselling books Through the Eyes of a Lion and Swipe Right. He is also the lead pastor of Fresh Life Church – a multisite church located in Montana, Utah, Oregon, and Wyoming that he and his wife Jennie pioneered in 2007. Levi travels around the world speaking about Jesus. He takes pleasure in small things, such as black coffee, new shoes, fast Internet, and falling asleep in the sun. He and his wife have one son: Lennox, and four daughters: Alivia, Daisy, Clover, and Lenya, who is in heaven. His new book I Declare War, is available now.

I'm honored to welcome Bullet Journal creator Ryder Carroll to the podcast to share the story behind his wildly popular organizational method. His new book The Bullet Journal Method details how you can go from passenger to pilot of your life through intentional living.

About the Book:  For years Ryder Carroll tried countless organizing systems, online and off, but none of them fit the way his mind worked. Out of sheer necessity, he developed a method called the Bullet Journal that helped him become consistently focused and effective. When he started sharing his system with friends who faced similar challenges, it went viral. Just a few years later, to his astonishment, Bullet Journaling is a global movement. 

The Bullet Journal Method is about much more than organizing your notes and to-do lists. It's about what Carroll calls "intentional living": weeding out distractions and focusing your time and energy in pursuit of what's truly meaningful, in both your work and your personal life. It's about spending more time with what you care about, by working on fewer things. His new book shows you how to...

  • Track the past: Using nothing more than a pen and paper, create a clear and comprehensive record of your thoughts.
  • Order the present: Find daily calm by tackling your to-do list in a more mindful, systematic, and productive way.
  • Design the future: Transform your vague curiosities into meaningful goals, and then break those goals into manageable action steps that lead to big change. 

Carroll wrote this book for frustrated list-makers, overwhelmed multitaskers, and creatives who need some structure. Whether you've used a Bullet Journal for years or have never seen one before, The Bullet Journal Method will help you go from passenger to pilot of your own life.

About the Author:  Ryder Carroll is a digital product designer and inventor of the Bullet Journal method. He's had the privilege of working with companies like Adidas, American Express, Cisco, IBM, Macy's, and HP. He's been featured by the New York Times, LA Times, Fast Co., The Wall Street Journal, BBC, Vogue, New York Magazine, Bloomberg, and others.

Acclaimed religion and culture writer Jonathan Merritt joins me on this episode to explore the reasons sacred language is declining and talk about why it's high time we breathe new life into our spiritual conversations.

About the Book:  As America rapidly becomes a pluralistic, postmodern society, many of us struggle to talk about faith. We can no longer assume our friends understand words such as grace or gospel. Others, like lost and sin, have become so negative they are nearly conversation-enders.
 
Jonathan Merritt knows this frustration well. After Jonathan moved from the Bible Belt to New York City, he discovered that whenever conversations turned to spirituality, the words he'd used for decades didn't connect with listeners anymore. In a search for answers and understanding, Jonathan uncovered a spiritual crisis affecting tens of millions. 
 
In this groundbreaking book, one of America's premier religion writers revives ancient expressions through cultural commentary, vulnerable personal narratives, and surprising biblical insights. Both provocative and liberating, Learning to Speak God from Scratch will breathe new life into your spiritual conversations and lure you into the embrace of the God who inhabits them.

About the Author:  Jonathan Merritt is one of America's most prolific religion and culture writers. An award-winning contributor for The Atlantic, he has published thousands of articles in outlets such as USA Today, Buzzfeed, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. As a sought-after commentator, Jonathan has appeared on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, ABC News, and NPR. He holds two graduate degrees in religion and resides in Brooklyn, NY.

Blake Healy has been seeing angels and demons for as long as he can remember. On today's broadcast he pulls back the veil to show us what it's like to see in the unseen realm and shares why he believes this is a gift available to all Christians.

About the Book:  For as long as he can remember, Blake K. Healy has seen angels and demons. He sees them as clearly as he would see you if you were standing right in front of him. He sees angels dancing in worship services and whispering words of encouragement in people’s ears. He also sees demons latching on to people and perpetuating addiction and bitterness in their hearts.

The Veil chronicles how Blake matured in this gifting, while overcoming the fear and confusion of what he saw, how he learned to use his gift of seeing for God’s glory, and how to teach others to do the same.

This new and updated version of The Veil also includes a brief guide on how to begin growing in the gift of seeing in the spirit yourself, as well as an appendix of scriptural references to the spirit realm and angels, along with Blake’s commentary on these passages.

About the Author:  Blake Healy has been able to see both angels and demons from a very young age. Though this gift has had its ups and downs, the message that Blake carries through it is one of love and intimacy. He has made it his goal to invite people into a greater understanding of God's goodness.

Blake has been involved in the prophetic ministry for over fifteen years. He attended three years at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry and now teaches at the Bethel Atlanta School of Supernatural Ministry

I can't wait for all of you to listen to my powerful conversation with mindfulness expert and Stanford Graduate School of Business Professor Leah Weiss! We talk about her affinity for making infant leg warmers, how she got interested in mindfulness practices at a very young age, and why a lack of self-awareness might be holding you back from the success you've been looking for at work and at home. You don't want to miss this one!

About the Book:  In today’s workplace, the traditional boundaries between "work" and "personal" are neither realistic nor relevant. From millennials seeking employment in the sharing economy to Gen Xers telecommuting to Baby Boomers creating a meaningful second act, the line that separates who we are from the work we do is blurrier than ever.

The truth is, we don’t show up for our jobs as a portion of ourselves—by necessity, we bring both our hearts and our minds to everything we do. In How We Work, mindfulness expert and creator of the perennially-waitlisted Stanford Business School course "Leading with Mindfulness and Compassion" Dr. Leah Weiss explains why this false dichotomy can be destructive to both our mental health and our professional success.

The bad news, says Weiss, is that nothing provides more opportunities for negative emotions—anxiety, anger, envy, fear, and paranoia, to name a few—than the dynamics of the workplace. But the good news is that these feelings matter. How we feel at and about work matters—to ourselves, to the quality of our work, and ultimately to the success of the organizations for which we work.

The path to productivity and success, says Weiss, is not to change jobs, to compartmentalize our feelings, or to create a false "professional" identity—but rather to listen to the wisdom our feelings offer. Using mindfulness techniques, we can learn how to attend to difficult feelings without becoming subsumed by them; we can develop an awareness of our bigger picture goals that orients us and allows us to see purpose in even the most menial tasks. In How We Work, Weiss offers a set of practical, evidence-based strategies for practicing mindfulness in the real world, showing readers not just how to survive another day, but how to use ancient wisdom traditions to sharpen their abilities, enhance their leadership and interpersonal skills, and improve their satisfaction.

About the Author:  Leah Weiss, PhD, is a researcher, professor, consultant, and author. She teaches courses on compassionate leadership at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and is principal teacher and founding faculty for Stanford’s Compassion Cultivation Program, conceived by the Dalai Lama. She also directs Compassion Education and Scholarship at HopeLab, an Omidyar Group research and development nonprofit focused on resilience. She lives in Palo Alto, California with her husband and three children.

In this episode I sit down with Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis to talk about the ways her personal faith journey and convictions influenced her decision to defend traditional marriage and religious freedom.

About the Book:  This true story goes behind the scenes to reveal how God gave this unlikely candidate a platform to defend marriage and religious freedom.

In this amazing narrative of redemption and courage, Davis details her personal experience from the moment former Governor Beshear ordered the state’s county clerks to issue same-sex marriage licenses, throughout her arrest and release from jail.

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee “It’s a great read. But more than that, this remarkable story of what God did in Kim’s life gives me hope for our nation.”

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin said, “When history called upon Kim, she was both ready and willing to respond. Will the same be said of you?”

Copies of Kim's book are available through the Liberty Counsel.

So excited to bring Kyle Mann on for this episode of The Shaun Tabatt Show! We discuss this history of The Babylon Bee and explore how a couple of guys running a Christian satire website end up getting a book deal with a major Christian publisher.

About the Book: Written in the trademark style of The Babylon Bee, this book humorously satirizes cultural Christianity while peppering in subtle challenges to the reader. Through humor and sarcasm (and a handy meter to rank your "holiness" as you progress through the book), readers will be called to find a more biblical understanding of the Christian faith, all while poking fun at the quirks of the modern, American Christian community.
