William P. Young — Author of The ShackEvery week, Drew has various publishers pitch him authors to interview on the show. Some he interviews, many he doesn't. Never before though, has Drew endorsed a book as strongly as this one The Shack. A work of fiction, written by an unknown author & self published. Having only spent a few hundred dollars on marketing, The Shack has sold almost half a million copies in the last 10 months! WHY? Since finding out about The Shack, many of Drew's friends have gone out and bought entire boxes of the book. This week, the author of this incredibly spiritually healing book joins us LIVE, in studio.
Brennan ManningFormer Franciscan priest and author of The Ragamuffin Gospel and Abba's Child, Brennan's books seem to be written for broken, screwed-up, ordinary people like you and I, who seem to be incredibly spiritually uncoordinated.
Wendy & HeatherA woman volunteering at a post abortion support group has really connected with one of the participants. Both have agreed to join us to talk about their journey. One of them is a woman who wanted to reach out to other women that just really needed the love and support without an agenda or condemnation - the other, a woman who found herself on the other side of a personal choice which impacted her in a way she never expected. One with a Christian worldview - the other, still processing her spiritual journey. Yet both lives, both worldviews, have intersected... despite their different belief systems.
Should the authorities take away the remaining children from a family who watched their 11-year old daughter die while waiting for her to be healed by God?An 11-year old girl died on Easter Sunday as a result of complications due to diabetes. Actually, she died because her family believed God would heal her so they refused medical treatment for their daughter. The family's three other teenagers were temporarily removed from the home and are expected to return to their parents once an investigation of the girl's death wraps up. Do you think the local authorities should permanently remove these children from their parent's custody or allow them to stay in their care?
The Counsel Of Many!Need Help or Advice On An Issue In Your Life?
Tell us your situation and Drew will ask the listeners of TDMS!
This week... a man wants advice on how to convince his wife to increase the frequency in their sex life. "I've heard on your show several times how a married couple having sex only ten times a year or so is so unimaginable. My wife and I are Christians who have a good marriage in most ways, for many years, but I wish I could find a way to entice her to have sex more than our average of 5 or 6 times per year. Nothing I say or do makes much of a difference to that rate. I end up doing the housework as a way to vent my anger and frustration. I could go for outside help but I don't want to shame my wife by talking openly about this. She doesn't get it and I want help. I have just enough hope to believe that the Counsel Of Many might have some twist on this that I haven't thought of. I'll be disappointed if all I hear is "get outside help" or "spend more time with her" because I'm already doing all that and more. I play with the kids, I listen, I get into her feelings, I even know her love languages. Now what?"
