I'm excited to bring my friend Michael Lombardo on The Shaun Tabatt Show. We discuss his faith journey, how he used Facebook Live to grown his personal and ministry platform, and some of the great truths you'll find in his new book Immersed in His Glory (Destiny Image, 2018).
About the Book: What keeps you from encountering Jesus in a greater way? Do you feel unfit to enter His presence? Perhaps you are stuck in a spiritual drought? Or maybe you worry that you simply don’t “know enough” to truly meet with God.
Every human being is hard-wired with a need for intimacy with God. When this need isn’t met, we search elsewhere and find ourselves broken and unfulfilled. Connecting with God is of the utmost importance!
In Immersed in His Glory, Michael Lombardo invites you to experience this vital union with the Holy Spirit that is greater than you’ve ever imagined—a continuous fellowship with God where a lifestyle of miracles, visions, and supernatural encounters becomes normal. These presence-saturated experiences are available to all believers!
Learn to overcome every obstacle that keeps you from the only place of true fulfillment and deep satisfaction—the glorious presence of God!
This practical message will give you:
Get ready to boldly enter the fullness of God’s glory. Take hold of the fulfilling, satisfying, glorious life you were born to live!
About the Author: Michael Lombardo is an international minister, revivalist, and author. He’s preached the gospel with salvations, signs, and wonders in over twelve countries. He met his wife, Selina, while serving as a missionary with Iris Global in the bush of Mozambique. Together, they are the founders of Life Poured Out International, a ministry with a vision to reach the lost, ignite the church, and serve the poor. Their ministry is marked with the tangible move of God’s Spirit, especially in prophecy, healing, and manifestations of God’s glory.

Today I have the pleasure of speaking with Bethel Church leader Havilah Cunnington about her brand new book Stronger than the Struggle: Uncomplicating Your Spiritual Battle (Thomas Nelson, 2018).
About the Book: We all face challenges. On any given day, the problems of real life can take our breaths away. Our marriages, finances, relationships, and health are regular struggles, and that's just the beginning. Doesn't the Bible say the war has already been won? So why do we still battle?
In a down-to-earth, let’s-get-real approach, popular Bible teacher Havilah Cunnington cuts through the confusion and shows us how to
With humor and honesty, Cunnington lays out practical tools to thrive in the face of hardship, enabling us to walk forward in the confidence that, because of Jesus, we really are stronger than the struggle.

Excited to have Mark Wilson back on the podcast after a three year hiatus. This time around, we're talking about his new book The Spirit Said Go: Lessons in Guidance from Paul's Journeys (Wipf and Stock, 2017).
About the Book: "God's got a plan for your life" is an aphorism frequently heard by Christians. But how do you discover that plan? The Spirit Said Go is designed to help believers find God's will. Using Paul's journeys in Acts as examples, Wilson discusses twenty lessons on guidance drawn from these journeys. Using his firsthand experience traveling along these routes in the Eastern Mediterranean, he reads between the lines offering additional insights into Luke's account. He also provides important geographical and archaeological information to illustrate Paul's world among the Jews, Greeks, and Romans. Wilson then illustrates each lesson with autobiographical vignettes drawn from his own spiritual pilgrimage of over forty years as a follower of Jesus. Friends and colleagues also share stories of similar experiences of guidance. Each chapter ends with reflection questions that help the reader integrate the lesson into Christian living. The volume offers an inductive Bible study combined with practical, spiritual insights regarding how God guides his people then and now.
About the Author: Mark Wilson is the founder and director of the Asia Minor Research Center in Antalya, Turkey. He currently has academic appointments at Stellenbosch University, the University of South Africa, Ridley College, and Regent University. He is the author of Biblical Turkey (2010) and Victory through the Lamb (2014).

The amazingly prolific Tricia Goyer joins me today on the podcast to discuss her newest book Walk It Out: The Radical Result of Living God’s Word One Step at a Time (David C. Cook, 2017).
About the Book: Women often pack their lives with family, friends, and faithful service, yet still end up feeling empty and unfulfilled. In Walk It Out, Tricia Goyer demonstrates to women that walking out the mandates of Scripture allows God to spark passion and mission within them.
Whether believers realize it or not, God intended for them to do what the Bible says: adopt the orphan, take the gospel into all the world, and care for the needy. These are mandates that point believers down the path of true living and eternal life.
Sometimes those steps are easy, but many times they require a move outside of what feels safe or secure. When women stop focusing on their own dreams and purposes, and instead focus on God’s dreams and purposes, everything changes.
About the Author: Tricia Goyer is a God-centered, passionate and charismatic author with a detail-focused approach to her unique blend of writing. A prolific writer, she's published over 70 books, including Walk It Out: The Radical Result of Living God's Word One Step At a Time.
This USA-Today Best-selling Author has also won a two Carol Awards and a Retailer's Best Award. She was also an ECPA Gold-Medallion Nominee and a Christy Award Nominee.
Tricia's debut novel, From Dust and Ashes, was about the liberation of the Mauthausen Concentration camp in Austria at the end of World War II. Tricia researched at in Austria and interviewed over 100 veterans to collect their remarkable experiences…passing them on to a new generation of readers. Tricia puts the same dedication and detail into every book she writes.
Tricia's writing style is vivid and heartwarming, allowing readers to take home more than engaging stories, but also incredibly inspiring messages of faith and hope. Her goal is to write stories that matter. Tricia Goyer is a homeschooling mom of ten, grandmother of four, and wife to John. With a busy life she understand the importance of making every word count.

Has the church fallen asleep at the wheel? I'm excited to welcome Carmen LaBerge to the podcast to talk about why it's time for Christians to re-engage in the culture and address the problems of our day by boldly—and lovingly—bringing God back into every conversation.
About the Book: Animosity, confrontation, confusion—from cable news right down to our kids' classrooms, Christians are waking up to a world very different from the one we once knew. We are quick to blame everyone else from Hollywood to Washington, but it is not the culture's fault God is sidelined.
If God is missing from the conversation, then it is because His people have failed to represent Him there. Christians have been far too silent for far too long, retreating out of fear of offending someone or the unpleasantness of stepping outside our comfort zone. When Christians have spoken up, too often it has not been in ways that honor Jesus. We have inserted our own opinion, obscuring the beauty and truth of the Gospel in favor of our political, ideological, or personal agenda.
It's time for us to embrace our calling as Christ's ambassadors. To do that, we must be equipped to engage the world in ways that bring the mind of Christ to bear on the matters of the day.
Carmen LaBerge's Speak the Truth seeks to give believers the confidence to speak the truth and the tools to re-engage in the culture and address the problems we are facing today by boldly—and lovingly—bringing God back into every conversation
About the Author: Carmen LaBerge is a writer, speaker and host of the daily Christian talk radio show The Reconnect as well as the President of the Presbyterian Lay Committee (PLC), a ministry that’s been working to equip Christians for faithful witness for more than 50 years. Before becoming president of the PLC, she served in mainline Christian ministry for 17 years.

Dr. Peter Williams visits The Shaun Tabatt Show to discuss The Greek New Testament, Produced at Tyndale House, Cambridge.
About the Book: The Greek New Testament is priceless in its value as it is how God has given us his revelation of the gospel and of Jesus Christ. While a few trusted Greek texts are in print, significant advances have been made in Greek translation studies of the New Testament since a standard text was adopted by academics in 1975. The Greek New Testament, Produced at Tyndale House, Cambridge has been created under the oversight of editors Dr. Dirk Jongkind (St. Edmund's College, University of Cambridge) and Dr. Peter Williams (Tyndale House, Cambridge). Together with their team, they have taken a rigorously philological approach to reevaluating the standard text—reexamining spelling and paragraph decisions as well as allowing more recent discoveries related to scribal habits to inform editorial decisions. Ideal for students, scholars, and pastors alike, and published to coincide with the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, The Greek New Testament, Produced at Tyndale House, Cambridge is a groundbreaking contribution to biblical scholarship.
About the Editor: Peter J. Williams (PhD, University of Cambridge) is the principal of Tyndale House and the consulting editor and coordinator of this project. He is also chair of the International Greek New Testament Project, which is producing the largest scholarly edition ever attempted of a single book of the New Testament, namely the Editio Critica Maior of John's Gospel. He is the author of Early Syriac Translation Technique and the Textual Criticism of the Greek Gospels.

My friend Israel Wayne returns to the show to make the case for the importance of Christian education and homeschooling. Full disclosure: I am pro homeschooling.
About the Book: Since the beginning of the 20th century, the vast majority of Christians have embraced the idea that it is a proper role and function of the civil government to control and guide the education of children. Most Christians believe God doesn't care, one way or the other, how our children are schooled or what methods are employed. This book will use Scripture to prove otherwise. What you read in this book will radically challenge your assumptions and preconceived ideas.
There is almost no topic that is as relevant to the future of Christianity or as controversial as the education of children. Students in school classrooms spend thousands of hours being instructed by people who are not their parents. There is almost no way to calculate what a powerful force this is for influence.
From rules to help students reason to information that will help you be a more effective teacher, this book shows the vital importance of "why" in asking students to learn the "what" and "how" of any subject. The future of your child's education and, therefore, his or her life is ultimately in your hands as a parent. Open your mind and your heart to God's Word and His truth. Much is at stake. Ask Him to give you discernment to help you understand how He sees the issue of education.
About the Author: Israel Wayne is an author and conference speaker who has a passion for defending the Christian faith and promoting a Biblical worldview. The author of Homeschooling from a Biblical Worldview, Full-Time Parenting: A Guide to Family-Based Discipleship, Questions God Asks and Questions Jesus Asks.

Carl Gallups joins me to talk about biblical prophecy and how it relates to unfolding world events, the unprecedented expansion of technology, and thousands of Jews and Muslims coming to Christ.
About the Book: The return of Israel. Increased turmoil in the Middle East. The rise of ISIS. China and Russia's presence in the Fertile Crescent. The exponentially increasing technological explosion. The "Trojan horse" refugee crisis. America's collapsing borders. The rise of the Sodom and Gomorrah spirit. The targeting of Christians around the world and particularly in the Middle East and The United States. These are just a few prophetic fulfillments occurring in our day pointing to significant biblical times to come. The Bible is 100% accurate in regards to the ancient prophecies and ours is the first generation to see these startling events converging - and at lightning speed.

Michael & Aimée Spurlock share the exciting true story behind the new film ALL SAINTS and talk about what it was like seeing their story playing on the big screen.
About the Film: ALL SAINTS is based on the inspiring true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett), the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all.
After trading in his corporate sales career to become a pastor, Michael’s first assignment is All Saints, a quaint country church with a dozen members. It comes with a catch: he has to close the church doors for good and sell the prime piece of land on which it sits. While developers eagerly eye the property and the congregation mourns the inevitable, Michael and his family look forward to moving on to an established church where they can put down roots.
But when the church hesitantly begins welcoming Karen (kuh-REN) refugees from Burma—former farmers striving for a fresh start in America—Michael feels called to an improbable new mission. Toiling alongside the Karen people, the congregation attempts to turn their fertile land into a working farm to pay the church’s bills and feed its newest people.
Jeopardizing his family’s future by ignoring his superiors, Michael must choose between completing what he was assigned to do—close the church and sell the property—or listening to a still, small voice challenging the people of All Saints to risk it all and provide much-needed hope to their new community.
About the Spurlocks: The Reverend Michael Spurlock is a graduate of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and Nashotah House Theological Seminary. He served All Saints Episcopal Church in Smyrna, Tennessee, for three years beginning in 2007. He is currently on the clergy staff at Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue in New York City. Michael, his wife, Aimee, and their two children live in New York City.
Aimée Marcoux-Spurlock is an award-winning reporter and a classically trained singer and actress. Aimee is married to Michael Spurlock, an Episcopalian priest. Their family is the subject of
a new film from AFFIRM Films and Provident Films called ALL SAINTS, based on the inspirational true story of their time at All Saints church, in Smyrna Tennessee. Aimee and Michael live in New York City with their two children.

About the Book: The supernatural visitation described in this book happened in 1992. However, I felt that I could not speak of it openly until the "time was right," and that time is now! In the years that followed, I had angelic encounters that are also recounted in these pages.The time I spent in the presence of Jesus profoundly changed me! During this time, Jesus promised that the story of His visitation and the teaching He gave during my 45-minutes with Him has the capacity to radically change YOU too.
