  • Donald Miller — Author of A Million Miles in a Thousand Years
    Full of beautiful, heart-wrenching, and hilarious stories, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years details one man’s opportunity to edit his life as if he were a character in a movie. Years after writing a best-selling memoir, Blue Like Jazz, Donald Miller went into a funk and spent months sleeping in and avoiding his publisher. One story had ended, and Don was unsure how to start another. But he gets rescued by two movie producers who want to make a movie based on his memoir. When they start fictionalizing Don’s life for film–changing a meandering memoir into a structured narrative–the real-life Don starts a journey to edit his actual life into a better story. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years details that journey and challenges readers to reconsider what they strive for in life. It shows how to get a second chance at life the first time around.

  • Craig Gross — Author of Jesus Loves You This I Know
    HOMOSEXUALS, ATHEISTS, DEADBEAT PARENTS, CROOKS, and even the RELIGIOUS… this book contains the stories of how the powerful and disarming truth that Jesus loves each of us, changed these people’s lives. Craig has seen firsthand how love can change lives by loving those in the porn industry to drunken high school partiers in Australia; probably because he spends most of his time outside the church walls with “normal” people. Craig founded Fireproof Ministries and XXXchurch.com and is the author of several books, including The Gutter, Starving Jesus and Questions You Can’t Ask Your Mama about Sex. Craig’s ministry has been featured in the New York Times, Good Morning America, Nightline, GQ Magazine, The Daily Show, Time Magazine, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and he recently started The Strip Church in Las Vegas, Nevada.

  • "Eddie"
    Numerous felonies including assault, weapon & drug charges, landed him 14 years in prison, including a stint at the infamous Folsom Prison. After being paroled eight times, “Eddie” showed up at church one day where the pastor recognized him as a childhood friend. He’s just recently finished his final parole. So what was it that finally turned his life around? God showing up in prison and messing with his heart? The unconditional love of his parents during incarceration? Or a church that loved on him despite his past? His story is just one of the chapters in Craig Gross & Jason Harper’s book, Jesus Loves You This I Know.

Talkback, etc.

    Need Help or Advice On An Issue In Your Life?

    Tell us your situation and Drew will ask the listeners of TDMS!

    This week on the Counsel Of Many: a lady wants to know if she should invite her fiancé’s alcoholic father to their wedding or not.
    “My fiancé and I are getting married next summer but I’m really worried about his father disrupting the wedding. He’s a great guy but he’s an alcoholic and I’m just so afraid if he comes to the wedding that he’ll totally embarrass himself and potentially ruin the entire day. I’m just wondering if I should suggest that he not be invited at all. I mean just imagine if he comes to the ceremony and starts yelling out stuff or making a complete fool of himself? And if we just invite him to the reception, well that’s where the booze and the speeches are, and that’s not exactly a great combination for him. So what do I do? Seriously, it’s a huge risk to invite him and I’m sure that my fiancé and his family will want his father there at this special occasion. But it seems like it’s an even bigger risk having him there – drunk! I feel so stuck and really need some advice.”

  • If you knew someone was doing something illegal, would you turn them in or just not get involved?
    During his flight back from Vancouver this week, Drew saw someone he knew on a television show. When he tuned in, he found out that this person was being investigated as one of Canada’s biggest conmen! Although he wasn’t ripped off himself, Drew knows people who have been conned by this guy, including two ministries. Should he call the Police or at least contact the news program? Or would it be more loving to stay out of it and just pray for the guy? Should Jesus people “rat” on others? Could you see Jesus telling on a conman?
