And you just have a new eric. I'm the author get get outta here avalon. All you know. I do not flatter. Because i don't care what they think and your mum that list of people i just i don't care enough to flatter europe or the book is just actually good. If it sucks. I would not i tell you in an email but i wouldn't tell you on the air but this book is atheism dead is fantastic and i wanted to describe it to people. I purposely took this book with me. E book version to a greek restaurant in in dallas. That i take you to. When you're in town cost is cafe. Wonderful cafe on greenville. Very authentic When i was once reading your book stared the waiter comes up and says the author is greek. And i said yes. And he's a friend of mine and he eats here sometimes he said go tell telling to say hello next time. He is in restaurants. And i'm reading his atheism de kostas cafe and i realized that your book is like the athenian combo on the on the menu. Where it's not just lamb chops. It's also shrimp scampi. And it's also an order souvlaki. It has a huge filed. Three different wonderful thing. You get all of that for the low low low low low price of fourteen ninety seven if you go to eric. Metaxas dot com. It's supposed to be a thirty dollar book. Four hundred plus pages. And you're telling me and i know this is true. It's basically three books in one. I mean i'm not joking like it is. It's weird right. It is three short books in one. It really you should have sold them separately and now seldom together in a special authors anyway. Three books in one the first one is a fantastic book on intelligent design and how physics and biology and cosmetology and chemistry and chemistry are all pointing towards the fact that life could not exist. An orderly universe couldn't exist certainly advanced life and then human conscious life. None of these things can be explained by the quaint victorian nineteenth century superstition of random chance. Darwinism and survival. Of the i mean and that's putting it very mildly and i oftentimes when i'm writing my books. I established myself because i discovered things. I think. It can't possibly be this dramatically true. So i think when people read the book they will be
John Zmirak: George W Bush Equated Ashli Babbit With Jihadists
"John's merrick. What's on your mind. Well i just finished reading the letter of ashley. Abbott's mother responding to george. W bush ashley bavin whose daughter answered george bush's call and joined the us and fought in iraq in our air force and then protested on january six. You know she committed a crime of trespassing. She climbed through someplace. It wasn't supposed to and the capitol. Police shot her dead. No she tried. She tried to climb through but she was murdered. by someone whose name. I guess. We're never going to know you know what maybe general milley can do. He could do us a solid and go behind the back of the Current fake president. And maybe he could get that name to us because he's a stand up guy. He cares about america. She was shot dead by a capital police officer. For no reason she wasn't carrying seven. She wasn't threatening anyone. And here. George w bush. The man who in a sense lured her into the us military. She signed up because of his war on terror. Here he is equating. Ashley babbitt to muhammad atta and all those other filthy jihadi psych psych of ads who attacked our hometown. I think it is for us to establish why we think this is such a despicable thing for the former president to have said it's deeply shameful. He seems to be in bed with whatever you call at the deep state i mean look. His father was cia. His father was as deep state president as it gets. But i really believe w was different from his father. Oh yes he appoints cheney and rumsfeld. But i did not believe because i thought this men's an evangelical christian he's from texas. He doesn't seem to be the kind of guy that would buy into that stuff. But then we see pictures of him and his father schmoozing with the clintons. Now pictures of him. You know hugging a barack and michelle and you begin to wonder where he's coming
Dr Michael Guillen: Science Shows That Seeing Is Not Believing
"That's what we're talking about right now with dr michael gillen. The book is believing is seeing. So you're saying that we we meaning you and others were observing. The spin of certain galaxies ended implied that there was a lot more matter and mass. Then we could see and so what we infer from that observation so we inferred that there must be some things some substance within that galaxy that is causing it to spin so fast that we can't see it's an invisible form of stuff and that's all we called it. When i was a grad student but then as i in the years afterwards we came to call it dark matter. So that's what we call the missing mass that. Where is this mass. That's causing the galaxy galaxy to spin so fast and then beyond that we discovered that the universe is actually not only expanding but it's accelerating out words. That was huge. And i actually covered that when i was at. Abc news because a friend of mine at harvard was involved in that discovery. And we call that dark matter the bottom line just just to come back to the point i was making is that when i learned as a young scientists that most of the universe is invisible and we now believe ninety five percent of the observable universe is invisible to us. I could no longer live by the motto. Seeing is believing because here was science now demanding that i believe in a universe most of which i could not see so i had to ditch. Seeing is believing in that launched me on a very long. Herman has like journey you know. Tormented intellectual sequel has like journey. I literally make fun of. Herman has in the introduction to my new book is areas in bed. I'm not even joking. I'm going to send you a copy when we get off the air. I gotta send you a copy. But so what you're saying. I really you know. I i want to be serious and let the audience know that science or let's say materialists people who are scientistic who insist. There's no such thing as anything except what we can detect with our five senses anything beyond the realm of quote unquote science cannot exist. They make this statement now. That is a statement of faith. It's preposterous but you're telling me oh by the way even science contradicts that idea. Because you're saying there is a ton of matter we can infer the existence of it but we can't see it and so that right there causes you to think like well. Maybe we're getting some of this

How Is God Encouraging You to Stay Strong and Courageous?
"Encouraging you to stay strong and courageous these days. Do tell yeah. I know i think when i go places tons of people come up to me and thank me for my voice or whatever and i'm always amazed that they even perceive me perceive me as having a voice that's courageous or something because i think don't we have an obligation to speak up. I mean i don't know. Maybe it's because i studied the lives of bonn hoffer and all these other great people and in the seven men book and seven women book. These are all people that they inspire you. You want to be that way. And i think that if you behave that way you inspire others to behave that way so i really do feel like we're in a war for the truth and so you've gotta speak the truth particularly when it's uncomfortable particularly when it's uncomfortable and i think that the more you do it the more others around you will do it so but i'm thrilled that people perceive it that

I had written the howard zinn book which emerged from my experience as a college instructor for twenty years when i saw the corruption of education and i learned about howard sin and so my book on howard zinn came out in twenty nineteen right around the same time that's sixteen nineteen project came out and actually day apart and i saw the sixteen nineteen project and i started reading it. And after i had written the book on howard's then i thought well can't get much worse but in its own unique way the sixteen nineteen project maybe worse especially because it's being adopted for the elementary school grades so i wanted to expose the lies and you know i am an immigrant to this country.

"To the eric metaxas. Show with your host eric. Metaxas ladies and gentlemen as promised we keep yacking yacking about food for the poor. You like to know. Hey who runs that organization. Well we tracked him down. He wasn't easy to find. But his name is ed rains. And these right here at welcome to the program. So much erica. Great be on your show. Of course i'm lying. You were very easy to find. It was you who found me. But i want to ask you. How long have you been ahead of food for the poor because you're a fairly recent addition to this long-standing organization yes i've been here almost four years but as presidency out since the beginning of twenty twenty so Where are you from originally ed. Well i started off life. I've grown up in london and came to college in the us and never left. So allie. let you've got a little bit of that English accent there. Well look i'm on. My audience already knows about food for the poor but let's for those who don't who might be tuning in right now. I have to say there are almost no organizations that we work with way we do with you. Guys see us is the only one that's popped into my mind that people that we have vetted not just we the metaxas show but the entire salem radio network from mike gallagher to the next mayor of california larry elder to hughhewitt to my dear dear friend. Dennis prager we believed in the work. You're doing at food for the poor and the way you do it. Feeding the poorest of the poor in the world haiti other places so we really believe in you and periodically we partner with you. We're doing that with this month. Obviously and so. I want to say before we even get into the conversation. Folks you go to my website. It's radio website. Metaxas talk dot com. You'll see the banner all the exciting details. Are there eric. Metaxas dot com my website. Metaxas talk dot com. Is the radio website since we talk on the radio. And if you want to call the numbers eight four four eight six three eight four eight six three hope. So ed rain Tell us what are we looking at right. Now you've been the head of food for the poor since roughly this horrific pandemic messed with the world's economy and everything. So what's going on right now. Well thanks eric. I mean one of the things we have to say is that the kovin hit that we saw in the us has been replicated in the seventeen countries that we support around the caribbean and latin america. And just as we saw the food crisis has been the number one problem. People suddenly finding themselves without work and in many of the countries the devaluation of their currency is also ensured that they are faced with limited access to food and the food they can find us at a great cost so that burden is greater than and then you know we're in the business of the sort of helping from a relief anyway so you add in what we typically expect in a given year with the hurricanes and the flooding and so forth so you know think about las gio cova going on and then those two hurricanes. It slammed into central america. We were that to provide support but it is This is a a moment in time where we are very concerned for the countries that were supporting food. Is the number one problem. Well it's hard again for america. There's always a challenge because we are so blessed in this nation. Even the poorest people in this nation have ways to get food so the idea that there are people struggling who don't have the most basic medicine are dying for one of medicine that none of us would ever think about having a problem getting. That's why you all are doing what you're doing. How many years food for the poor been doing this kind of thing. But it's thirty nine years and you're quite right. I mean the medicines are a part of our program. We pawn with organizations to provide us with medicines and medical supplies. And and when you think about the plight of someone in extreme poverty multiple needs so we talk about. You know all all of those whether it's food it's access to water. It's shelter housing now. We built eighty five thousand homes through the generosity of donors over thirty nine years in in many of those countries about nine of those countries. But all of these things press upon the problems of poverty and so try to be able to provide a full array of solutions for those people is is imperative. We always start with food. That's why food for the poor. That's how we began but we've very quickly realized that a full array of solutions was was required. Imagine what it's like. If you absolutely have nothing i mean we talk about you. Know relative poverty within the us and there are many services that help those in extreme. Need here in this country but that safety net just is not present in the countries. We're talking about so if somebody doesn't act on their behalf. Nothing's going to happen. It's an amazing thing. Because in this country the united states we have the luxury of arguing which is better the public sector or the private sector should government. Be doing this shoot Private individuals be almost common goal that we argue about how to get it done and there are countries where it's not even a thought that the government would get it done. The governments tend to be tremendously corrupt. They couldn't care less about the poor and their misery. They don't have a christian worldview. In america even pagans have a christian worldview when it comes to the poor they don't know where it came from but of course it comes out of the bible caring for those who can't care for themselves feeding those who are hungry basic ideas for for centuries and in countries like haiti as describing and others. The governments are so broken down. There's a kind of anarchy and a misery and it would be wonderful if we can come in there and revive the entire nation. But we can't do that but the people are there they are suffering in what we can do is what food for the poor does. So it's just a beautiful. Tell us also. I mean i know i keep telling my audience that for one hundred dollars a you need. Somebody would feed three kids for six months. That's how you leverage the american dollars which is nothing less than astonishing. I mean when somebody things one hundred eleven dollars. It's nothing to american and then you think it can feed three starving kids for six months. So how is it. That food for the poor can do those types of things. Well a several salaries when you think about how we're set up. We have extensive logistics distribution capability. That's how we get the relief for the containers. It's usually about four thousand containers a year. Get set out to these countries and the most important part of the equation is how we use the churches in these countries. So it is really are sort of secret sauce. If you want to say it that way christian ministry here works through those churches all denominations and we're able to distribute through those churches. of course. it's you know the judge isn't charging to do this. And that's getting to more people through that network. I mean in in haiti alone. We have three thousand outlets for the distribution that we that we start off two warehouses they go to fourteen distribution centers and those distributions.

You communicate effectively and fish out of water. I grew up in warren ohio. And we moved a couple of times we stayed in warren would be like going from warren to atlanta. I mean it's a giant cultural drift. It's down the rapids couldn't be much bigger in in america right. I mean you go from being a an immigrant from new york city city. And i don't mean fancy sit new york which is manhattan queens growing up. In in the world of the greek orthodox church and the greek orthodox parochial school. You know all our friends at european immigrants and then suddenly moved to danbury connecticut where you don't wear school uniform. You play baseball football kickball. You go you ride your bike You go fish in. This was like moving to you. Know huck finn's mississippi. This was a this was moving to america. It was my first real experience of america. America and i never all this stuff you. What's interesting testing is. I never really processed some of this stuff and writing. This book i title the chapter moving to danbury. I title it moving to america because for me. That's what it was. I became fully american when we moved to danbury connecticut which is a working class town just beyond the gravitational pull of new york city. Now you're a decade behind me but we're watching the same tv on just older than you and by the way watching poco ahead. We're we're we're watching red skelton. We are watching laughing. We are watching the same tv and you detail. This through the eyes of the greek world now. My giant experience with greek america is going to the episcopal to the greek orthodox. Church dances and going to which they would put on for kids in the summertime to get us into trouble and watching my big fat greek wedding. And so when you talk about that. And i want my to supplant my big fat greek wedding as the cultural touchstone for greek americans. Because i enjoyed my big fat greek wedding. But that's kind of the it's kind of tacky chicago.

brothers they were born on the same day which technically makes them twins they are David and Jason Benham I call them the Benham brothers Benham brothers welcome to the program thanks for having us Eric you looked dapper as always man I'm just like my hair I could tell you that you got here because the while zero and you guys still room that makes me uncomfortable I mean let me just say this you all have been involved in a lot of stuff we're friends because what we we both care about the pro life movement or more importantly we care about the unborn human beings and and David that you you are on the program last week talking to me about what happened to you in front of an abortion clinic in North Carolina what happened was an outrage and I want my TV an audience and my radio audience to hear this because this is something that we need to discuss and we need to figure out what we're gonna do about it because this is unacceptable in America so so tell us what happened to you in and it won't even feel free I'll be I'll begin with just one quick statement that our constitutional rights don't go out the window when we're facing a global pandemic I got a phone call last Saturday from our sidewalk counselors who are counseling for our ministry a federally recognized public charity called cities for like Jason and I found it ten years ago we have sidewalk counselors that offer help and support and social services from baby showers to medical support to housing assistance whatever these mothers facing an unwanted pregnancy might need and so this isn't some protester demonstration this is actually a loving social service that we offer to these mothers in the midst of this crisis so I get a phone call Saturday morning from our attorney that said Hey there's about fifteen police officers at the local abortion facility and they're threatening arrest our sidewalk counselors now just say real quick Eric when the whole coded stay in shelter laws came into place they deemed what was essential and nonessential businesses and abortion was considered any central business and inside the provisions of the statute of the stain shelter a local ordinances and state statute they talk about public charities are still essential especially if you're giving social services so we as a ministry of abortion is going to be essential then our ministry is essential so our son will counselors were there and we actually as an organization decided let's go above and beyond let's still practice social distance thing because I mean we want to love all of our neighbors as well both born and preborn so we had sidewalk chalk that marked out spacing of over six feet with our sidewalk counselors hand sanitizer all of that and we only had three sidewalk counselors there on Saturday so I show up and the police came right to me and said Sir you can't be here we cannot have a gathering of more than ten people I said well hold on a second first there's not ten people here second I am the chairman of the board of a federally recognized public charity we have every right to be here and he said no you don't you cannot be here this is a protest there's more than ten people here he's just making this stuff up and you can see this in the video maybe maybe maybe you didn't know the difference between four and ten is that possible I just well here you know listen you gotta give people grace okay you guys are such such Pharisees mainly this individual did not know the difference between foreign ten did you ever think about that you know anything about you because I mean they should have thought about that yes but you know what he probably wasn't home schooled and we weren't either so we're not really good and I'm not before chasing jumps in you know like Eric if you show up to a grocery store and it's I don't know that you even have these in New York but in here we see store so no no we you got grocery stores which strip centers were a big go grocery store is the anchor inn and all these other chain stores located to the big strip center yeah anchor tenants no if you show up to a grocery store and you look down at the FedEx building you see three people standing there ten people standing in front of the grocery store another two people over there at the you know the hair nail salon you don't say oh man there's twenty five people here that must have been what he did because this abortion facility is in the middle of a commercials it's it's like up a commercial building with two hundred commercial companies that are all rounded on about a one mile stretch so he looked down a quarter mile install two or three people maybe he lump them in with us this is I mean it's really insanity what's happening here Erica and one of the things that we talked about together on your show last week that we're seeing even worse now is that the Charlotte observer and the local media outlets along with the police department and the city attorney and now the mayor's office are all going along with this whole story then we staged a protest fifty people that's literally what they're saying they don't have pictures they don't have video we have the pictures we have the videos and nothing shows that what they're blaming on us is true it's just not true so when they're interested it's it's a lot when I wanna get to that but I was gonna say it's very hard when when someone out and out lies because then you realize you know it's kind of like you're in a boxing match in and somebody pulls out a knife what what do you do at that point and others here they are lying misrepresenting things and then people pick it up Charlotte observer and and in other journalistic institutions whose job it is to check the facts and to tell the truth I mean that we're never gonna get it right arm sometime but that's really the main goal when you see them doing biased you know fake journalism it's so grievous its greatest it should be grievous to everyone in America not just the people who agree with us on this issue this is very very poor we're going to go to a a break here so hang on one second folks will be right back with the Benham brothers house Hey album yeah.

"Special edition of the Eric Metaxas show this if Jesus could offer forgiveness to his torturers she would offer forgiveness to me first this it sounded like a very weakness I despised but a moment it seemed to open a glorious and unexpected window of hope forgiveness was scarce in the legalistic moral world my mother spoke of so often the universe was unbreakable system of cause and effect regulated by your rules oriented god do good no movie well too bad you had better watch out there was no hope for a person like me and that if you honestly measure your life by the commandments of god I suspect you will come to the same conclusion reaping what you sow it is not good news for any of us forgiveness is if Jesus remembered me when he came into his kingdom there might be some hope for me would be in it for him I couldn't think of anything if you took an interest in me it would not be because of anything I had done or anything I could offer if he remembered me at all it would be an act of undeserved mercy and kindness exactly what we offer to the soldiers who crucified him he showed them mercy and kindness what do you do the same for me asking him to remember me was deceptively simple I began to fear god I recognized my sinful condition I believed that Jesus.

"My introduction of Eric Metaxas. Was the challenge that I set for myself in the way of thinking just the right adjective, Eric has a English major s myself. So I think you'll appreciate this. I said about to write us an introduction in such a way that if someone asked me to define Eric by one single word just what that what would that word be? Now, it's not easy. He's to multifaceted, for example, if I were to mention the name of Ronald Reagan to you number of your might quickly come to the word conservative fireworks to mention Barack Obama are Nancy Pelosi. Most of you would probably think of the word liberal. Some might use. Okay. If I were to say Bret cabin all your might say courageous. But who is Eric Metaxas? So let's try intellectual now that's a good fit. He need only. Listen to Eric for a few minutes read, a single one of his biographies or essays or opinions or works of poetry to know that he is incredibly sharp. He's what we call whip smart. Very quick wit and intelligent. But that doesn't completely do the trick for Eric. Does it? How 'bout Evangelos? Indeed, he is certainly that recall from his stunning remarks before the national prayer breakfast and two thousand twelve. In an audience that included the aforementioned President Obama and Pelosi. God is not fooled. He famously said that morning in Washington DC. Let's try prolific here. Certainly that to the author of Martin Luther if you can keep it bomb Hoffa near a Kohl's seven seven women amazing grace, the list goes on and on to include thirty children's books as well. I love the title of this most recent Donald draining the swamp. His works have been translated the world over humorist would be in our vocabulary to describe him to his humor pieces for the monthly the New York Times. And elsewhere are the stuff of legend. I'm the president omnipresent. Not like God mind. Do that Michael a bit too far? But I'll be labor some prepositions here. You'll find Eric across the airwaves on Fox News in the Wall Street Journal as an MC. Published mung twenty languages amid the bestseller lists inside magazines around the network, speaking at commencement ceremonies and behind some of the best biographies you've ever read. Let's try this last more modern day adjective on for size Trumpian. It may have come as a surprise to many. But for an intellectual such as air to come to the fore in two thousand and sixteen in support of Donald Trump in opposition to politically correct lip-service practiced by many was only natural to quote, Eric. Not only can we vote for Trump. We must vote for Trump with all of us, foibles peccadilloes and metaphor cohorts. He is nonetheless, the last best hope of keeping America from sliding into oblivion the tank the abyss dustbin of history if you will. Right. Like that. Tries you will as I have one quickly discovers that it's impossible to define Eric with a single adjective as I set forth to do. He's kindly agreed to sit with me for an interview this evening on a number of topics, ladies and gentlemen, please. Join me in welcoming for a conversation on stage at the Reagan library, Mr. Eric Metaxas..
