Why would you want to drive across a minefield? Today’s guest did and no wonder he got into some serious trouble but why did he do it? Why did he end up in prison back in the UK?

Episode 79 - Joseph Steinberg (Part Two)

It seems to be all the rage whereby TV series are still shown in a weekly episode format but if you go on line (BBC I-Player for instance) you can watch all the episodes in one sitting without having to wait 7 days for part 2 etc.. I decided that doing similar would be the best option for my 2 episodes with Joseph. The feedback has been phenominal. Part Two is for me the main event! For those that haven’t listened to Part Two here it is. For those that have, here’s another chance listen to it again! Part Two is mainly about Joseph’s understanding (theological and personal) on the current Middle Eastern conflict. Joseph also discusses his Christian Hero. Part One is about Joseph’s life , how he became a Christian in a reformed American Jewish family before moving to the UK and becoming an Anglican vicar, plus other topics. Please, please, please tell all your Christian friends about these 2 stand alone episodes as I fully believe they need to be heard ASAP. A brand new episode will be released on 27 April – UK time. www.imjp.org Hello Peter

Episode 78 - Joseph Steinberg (Part One)

For those who listen regularly, you will know that an OGC interview will often go into uncharted waters! During the recording, we had covered so much about Joseph’s life (how he became a Christian in a reformed American Jewish family before moving to the UK and becoming an Anglican vicar) plus other topics and I realised we were running out of my scheduled 1 hour (Part One). I still wanted to discuss the current Middle East situation as he is the CEO of International Mission To Jewish People (an organisation that was formed in the 1800s). Joseph readily agreed to giving me more time and so a 2 part podcast was decided there and then! Both Parts One and Two are stand-alone episodes. Part Two is mainly about his understanding (theological and personal) on the current Middle Eastern conflict. Joseph also discusses his Christian Hero. Please, please, please tell all your Christian friends about these 2 episodes as I fully believe they need to be heard ASAP. I have been involved in Christian Broadcasting for over 30 years and I can honestly say this is the most important interview I have ever done…and I have been privileged to have been involved in a few. Please let us know your thoughts as well and don’t forget to tell your friends. www.imjp.org Hello George Muller

Episode 77 – Iwan Russell-Jones

Iwan used to be a BBC producer based in Cardiff having studied Theology at Oxford University. Prior to this he was in a Christian Rock Band. He later taught at Regent College in Vancouver. In this absorbing episode, Iwan discusses what Liberation Theology is, who The Levellers were and what he would do if I made him the Bishop of Wales! If only I could. The Christian Hero slot has created a new record for length….and after you have heard it, you will want to buy at least one of the two books referenced. I did and what a book it is and I am so pleased we deviated otherwise we would have never known. Why do I ask him if he had seen a mouse? To find out, please listen. Hello Liam and Noel

Episode 76 - Tim Grainger

Tim trained as a barrister but became a solicitor instead and is now the head of employment law for a well known firm of solicitors. Tim is a trustee for Lawyers Christian Fellowship and he shares what he has learned with them which included visits to African countries. Why is injustice such a big motivation in his career? How does his faith play a part in his day job and is being a Christian a hindrance to clients or even the job role? What advice can he give to us regarding employment law? What does grace mean to him? This episode will certainly encourage you especially if you are struggling at work. Hello Lemon 12
