    Episode 13: Facing America's Greatest Challenges (A Conversation with Lee Edwards, Ph.D., Distinguished Fellow in Conservative Thought, The Heritage Foundation)

    In this episode, Mike interviews a personal hero and the 89-year-old scholar who has been called “the first and most important historian of the American conservative movement.” His incredible career includes his roles as: national publicity director for the 1964 presidential campaign of Barry Goldwater; the first political biographer of Ronald Reagan; fifty-year confidante of William F. Buckley, Jr.; author of scores of essential books and articles; and recipient of medals and honors from the governments of free nations around the world.
    In today’s discussion, Dr. Edwards brings his unmatched insights to the big questions on everyone’s minds about the current status of the conservative movement—and the keys to its future. How can we remain a major political and philosophical force in America?  What is our greatest challenge and how do we overcome it?  How can we pass this along to the next generation?  The great wisdom and trusted advice here will inspire you.

The calming presence and clear conviction of Pastor Y.J. Jimenez has stood out in national interviews because he has spoken right to the heart of matter. We’re delighted to have him as a guest on today’s program to share even more of his biblical wisdom, and answer some of the tough questions about violence, sin and ministry in the toughest of times.           `
