Very informative and helpful. It's important for people to realize how God's protected His Word down through the ages. Thanks again. In Christ,
Thank you - this is for my two sons that were raised in the church but now question the validity of the Bible. I'm praying that they will find the truth.
: I want to respond in great appreciation for your wonderful resources. I enjoy all of your programming-from walking through the scriptures-to the historical settings and information of the
era, O.T., N.T., persecutions, lifestyles (culture), controversial issues-above all
else staying biblical-not just to please the crowd-but in honor to God. Thank
This is the first time watching your show and I am very encouraged to have additional resources to assist in my walk with Christ. The series What Would Jesus say about Resurrection really touched my heart. As I am dealing with feelings of inadequacy in my job and walk with the Lord I realize that I need to get back to the basics of what and who Christ is. Thank you for this!—Tim
Keep up the Lords work - your program has helped me with the struggles of faith and belief time and time again - specifically the series where you engage the top scholars on the subjects of resurrection and the Deity of Christ - God bless. —Robert
Excellent & thought-provoking Easter Sunday programme debating common skeptical assumptions about who Jesus is / was. Felt I must buy this recording to share with friends - both Christian and non-Christian! Thanks for providing such compelling and well-researched programming. —Laurie
I have been a viewer of DOD for many years, and have used many of your DVD's in my Bible Study. I visited Israel sometime back and was very taken back by what i encountered. I have never heard of anyone experiencing what i did and my faith was very much drawn into question. DOD has help me rebuild that faith. I view your TV program at Vision TV Canada. I would like to become a member of your video Club. Peace,
Your program is so very edifying - I thank God for your faithfulness.
The program was extremely accurate and emotionally brought me to tears.
I love watching your show. It just stretches and helps connect the Bible to a more realistic connection through your narration of places, testimonials that are so real and are super testimonies for Jesus Christ.
God Bless you all and your show
I get so much help from your program, the discussions help me to think of life in the right way. And brings me even closer to my Lord and forever friend Jesus. Thank you all so much. —Margery
I loved your program today on suffering. I think it was the best
explanation I have ever heard. The way it was presented certainly added to that response on my part. Thank you for what you do.
I appreciate the insights provided in today's show on Bethlehem. You have seriously attempted to present facts and truth instead of traditional Christian "history" which so often should or can only be categorized as Christian mythology. Your program today was "truth well told"... hats off to you. Thank you.—Mark
As Jimmy DeYoung described the work of the shepherds, their Levitical lineage (which most of us forget) and the process of birthing the lambs and wrapping them in swaddling cloths, the revelation I experienced was overpowering. The faces of those at church this morning as I related the story had the same expression. Thank you for your continued enlightenment of the Lord's Word.—Sharon
My husband and I are missionaries to international students at the University of Montana. We spend six weeks each year explaining the real meaning of Christmas. This program will help add to our resources.—Carol
Thank you for the deeper meaning of this GREAT EVENT OF JESUS' BIRTH!—Joyce
I just discovered your program today during a very dark hour in our family. I have been to Israel, the last time in 2010 I brought my son who suffers from addiction he is still fighting a battle of evil over this disease. I was moved to tears when I saw the eastern gates during the song O Come Emanuel. It brought me back to my trip and the promise that God is in control and will conquer all!! I look forward to the DVD. God bless your ministry.
Thank you for featuring Shannon Wexelberg on DOD. She is one of my favorite artists.
I just happen to hear your heartbreaking story & boy did it hit home as my daughter was put in an institution on Wednesday night for doing drugs. This really hit home & I hope that she will greatly benefit from it. —David
Every Sunday morning I make sure I get up in time to watch your wonderful "Day of Discovery" TV program before getting ready for church. This morning (Mother's Day) your program touched me more than any other. Cindy's testimony was an answer to prayer. The Lord used her to give me hope. Thank you so much for your ministry! I pray that God will continue to use you to touch lives in the name of Jesus. —MM
There have been 4 great moments in my life. The births of my 3 sons and not being able to sleep late last night and catching your story on Day of Discovery. I have had my faith in God for as long as I can remember. For the past 5 years I speak to him on a daily basis. But it has always been me, me, me. "I need you to help me with this, Show me how to get through that." Never any thank yous or acknowledgements on how He is guiding/teaching me.
After seeing your story, I realized I am not the only person in the world to go through constant trials and tribulations (it's a humbling experience when we discover the world doesn't revolve around us!) We've had a similar road and I just wanted to say thank you SO much for showing me the path I have been searching for for what seems like the last 2 decades of my life. I know now what I need to do to say thank you and acknowledge that I am one of God's children. He was always talking to me - I just wasn't listening.
This is another series revealing God's truth. I appreciate all the work that goes into producing each program. Thank you for your work. I have been watching D of D since the 1960's. It is so solid in the truth. Please continue. Do you by any chance have some DVD's of the programs that Mart's dad did from Cypress Gardens, Florida? I would love to have a copy of some of their shows. The music was beautiful.
Hello. I just caught your broadcast about Isa. 53. I just have to say, in my lifetime I don't think there's been a more biblically consistent organization than Day of Discovery. While many other organizations become watered down or liberalized, you folks have consistently produced material that upholds God's word and edifies untold numbers of people willing to listen. —Andy
I thought your 4-part series culminating with the Isaiah 53 program was enlightening. The men discussing this prophecy helped give a clearer understanding of Jesus the Messiah. Especially, appreciated Dr. Brown and Dr. Rydelnik. Thank you for doing this.
I love DOD. It helps me to articulate why I believe in Jesus. Excellent presentations!
Today I listened to the DOD on the subject of "What Jesus Said About Who He Is". I returned from Israel recently. Combined, these events have really opened my eyes as to who Jesus truly is. I thought I knew before. I have a much better understanding. I look forward to the DVD. Thank you.
I had watched your Day of Discovery program for years and then lost touch when the station carrying the show no longer did. This past Sunday I found the DOD program on ION TV at 7am. Glad to be reunited with the show. Really enjoy the on-site "documentary" style of programming. Keep it up!
It was a delight to see the Story of Eric Liddell. It was inspiring to see a young man dedicate his life to GOD & Christ. It is an awe inspiring story that should be told especially that it transcends time, and is much needed in
this present day. I thank GOD for your continued programming in the visual arts which is an excellent way to communicate Christ for such a time as this.
The format of biographies, apologetics, and historical backgrounds brings Christianity to life adding depth and meaning. Your programs have blessed me for many years.
The portions of the Eric Liddell shows that I saw were excellent. I was especially moved to hear what his daughters had to say. Thank you for
programming such as this. I rarely miss Day of Discovery broadcasts!
I am so blessed by the work that you do - the highest quality, the care and artistic level of the material that you create, and the pillar of faithfulness to declare God, His faithfulness, His love, His trustworthiness - you show yourselves faithful servants of a loving Master. I love biographies - this is one I have not seen, and though I knew of his book, I knew nothing of his life - it will make looking at his words new and alive for me - thank you!!
I'm an electrical engineer and retired US Air Force officer. My current work is in electrical engineering design for a consulting firm in
Charlottesville VA, and I teach engineering courses (adjunct professor) when the University of Virginia need help in that department. But my heart is in Christian apologetics. I wish to thank you for all your resources and quality productions such as the one this week on Oswald Chambers. He was a true man of God and used greatly by God as was his amazing wife. This is a program that can be used with nursing home ministries and Sunday School for the older adults. I'm asking your permission to use it in this manner.
Thank you so much....today was a rare Sunday that I could not attend my church thus I was in search of inspiration from the television. You might ask why not seek the inspiration from God's word...my answer is the same for my not being in my church...I have been sick to the point of just doing nothing....that is how much energy I have. This broadcast not only lifted me but enlighten me. And, again thank you.
Since I lost my hearing, attending church is not realistic. Your program has filled a great need in my life. As someone who is interested in
history, the showing of the places where Biblical events actually happened is tremendously interesting to me. The first show on the Book of Mark was exceptional. Keep up the good work. I have been a follower of Day of Discovery
since Billy Strachan gave messages.
I have been blessed by the music of Michael Card for many years, and
blessed by the ministry of Day of Discovery as well. To find you both working
together is no surprise, as the high quality of your giftings and how you bless
others with them makes it a natural result that you would have found each other!
Thank you for just one more blessing in my walk - your sister in Christ,
We were impressed with the info shared about the authenticity of the Bible. The speaker was clear and concise and answered questions about the apparent "violent judgment" by God in the OT. Best explanation we've heard. Keep up the good work. We try not to miss your broadcasts.
I'm blessed to have been in Capernaum twice, in 2004 and 2005, and today's program is the most complete tour of it that I've had yet. I was also blessed to meet Avner Boskey at Yad Hasmonah last year on a "Second Timer's" tour, so today's program was especially appreciated. Thank you so much.—Janet
I thought the message in Capernaum was outstanding. The emphasis on the importance of the heart and not the outward appearance. Also the Lord's interest in our faithfulness in daily living and not so much seeking after spiritual mountain tops. I am planning to share this with my neighbor who needs the Lord. Thanks.—John
Outstanding! We visited Israel in 1988, and saw many of the sites in this program. We look forward to seeing again those uncovered since then, which were in today's program. We watch DOD every Sunday AM.—Ted
Another excellent presentation which we plan to use at one of our Bible study groups in our apartment setting.—Robert
I wish I could visit this place. This video will in fact help minister to my children and my unsaved husband who takes huge interests in treasure hunting! Sincerely,—Laura
Watching "What Jesus said about following Him" answered so many questions I have had for years. Professing vs. Believing really hit my heart. Thank you for this series.—Peggy
I loved this weeks DOD as I always do, but this show made me think very deeply about myself and my Christian faith. I want to be a good example of a Christian to others who may be looking for change in their life. I know I came to Christianity because of the peace I saw in some Christians that I knew. I want others to see that in me and your show brought a deeper awareness of that to me. Thank you for your GREAT work in the Christian faith. I will continue to support & pray for you all. God Bless,—Tim
Thank you for this fine program. I believe this series is excellent and it helps answer many important questions relating to discipleship. I am also familiar with the guests you have on the program, I own several books authored by them. Well done. I am a counselor and I teach an adult singles class at church, this program is a good resource for me. Thank you again.—Jack
Love your program; especially today; I have a friend at work who I need to share this with because she is really a skeptic and very well educated, one who can argue because she believes in logic. Thank you for your program and praise to God for your dedication in bring us the WORD.—Ruth
We had a student die during football camp and a teacher's wife was
burned to death in a car accident that caught fire. Her husband is not only a teacher, but a southern baptist pastor. Both these were Christians as far as I know so they went to heaven. Yet the terrible aspects of death shocked and rocked our community. This program I hope will help in some way. —James
Absolutely love Os Guinness. Makes the difficult understandable for the rest of us. Thanks for your excellent programs. —J.M.S.
Wonderful. My husband and I just happened upon this program about Beersheba early this Sunday morning. We love hearing about Israel's history and I loved how the examples of Abraham's - and others - life reflects lessons and relevance for us today. Hope to see more shows like this!—Teresa
Avner had great insight into the life of Abraham and how it relates to our own. God Bless your ministry as you continue to bless Him.—Ron
I've always liked the interview/history shows when Avner is on - he's so clear, so real, so easy to listen to and watch. Thank you!—Sue
I cannot thank you enough for this WONDERFULLY INSPIRING program of a life of faith, nobility, courage and such strength. I'm 62 years old and still teaching at a public High School, where I use model personalities, like Ms. Marion Anderson, Dr. Carson and others, to inspire my students. Thank you and may God continue to bless your ministry for all it is doing to enlarge God's kingdom.—Janis
Excellent program, that encourages people of every cadre, to overcome fears, and inhibitions, to become what GOD has ordained them to become.—Adrian
I am a 77 year old musician - retired public school music teacher - still active as a church minister of music - and delighted that RBC ministries has produced this excellent program about Marion Anderson. Your program reveals her having a sincere faith in God that I had not been aware of - so I thank you and laud you for this production.—Dr. Carl W.
Day of Discovery has been a “must watch” program for me for quite some time. Even though the economic times are difficult, your ministry brings hope and encouragement to me and so many others. I so much enjoyed Mr. Phipps’ songs this morning that I had to order. Thank you so much and may God continue to bless RBC Ministries. —Era
The program from Israel, featuring Wintley Phipps, was moving, uplifting and inspiring. Thanks. —Aquila
I was ill at home on bedrest and turned on my TV and while flipping thru the channels saw the beautiful scenery of the Jordan River and other historic Biblical places and heard the awesome voice of Whitley Phipps. I was so inspired and my heart was so lifted. Thanks be to God for your Ministry and for Whitley’s airing of his awesome CD. Thank you. —Bernadette
The information given on this DVD was so enlightening. I've been a Christian for 40 years and received a much better depth of understanding regarding the seriousness of sin and the necessity of a life for a life. Thank you.—Sharon
I really appreciated learning about the Jewish sacrificial system. The animal and human sacrifices described in the Bible have always seemed so pagan to me - so I appreciated being given more information on this.—Celeste
I enjoy watching your program on Sunday mornings at 8:AM. It airs on Dish Network on channel 116. I am 72 years old and spent 35 in Brazil on the mission field but have learned so much from your program. Thank you so much. The DVD is for our son, who is lives and works in Brazil.—Erwin and Edna
We enjoy and have learned very much, even though we thought we knew it all.....we have been foreign & home missionaries for 40 years and are retreading & counseling now with personal counseling with the young missionaries, those, who will listen, that is!
Love of Christ,—Gene & Mary
I can't thank you enough for the way God has worked through your teaching on this program. Not only has my wife and I been so blessed, but my young adult daughters and their 79 year old grandmother have also gotten substantial growth in Christ through these messages. Thank you so much!!!!—Terry
God is amazing; In time past, I have been saved with the help of RBC ministries, and was led to the Day of Discovery series. Each time I find encouraging words and/or shows that help me along life's journey. During the past couple of months my husband and I have found ourselves in a wilderness situation; each of us experiencing our own unique wilderness, and sharing each others bleakness. Living in the Wilderness series, reminded me once again of God's grace, glory, and His Love. Thank you Mart and all of you, to me you are apostles of Christ. May God Bless all of you, —Sarah
Hello, I just wanted to let you know that this past Sundays program (August 1st) was life saving for me. Recently my life has been beset with loneliness and ongoing despair. I thought that GOD was punishing me for something I'd done...or didn’t do. I truly believed that HE had forgotten about me. After hearing about the story of Job on your program I realized that it was indeed the devil placing those thoughts in my head and heart. I just wanted you to know that it made a difference in understanding and accepting the difficulties. I realize that GOD does still love me. I've begun to pray daily again. Something that I had stopped doing because I began to feel that it didn’t matter...or that HE wasn’t listening. I can accept HIS will now. Thanks to you. I am struggling financially and therefore cannot support RBC Ministries as I use to. But I know that with the strength of our Lord Jesus Christ, I can get through it...and it will get better. I just wanted to Thank You from the bottom of my heart for giving me back my faith. It's all I really have. GOD Bless you. Your Sister In Christ. —(TJ)
Enjoyed watching "Vengeance to Forgiveness" this morning, and the impact on history these brave men have made. God will work through this DVD to win souls for the kingdom.—Daniel
I ordered from Vengeance to Forgiveness for my brother who has seen military action as a pilot, and whose prayer is always for world peace. My husband and I appreciate the history, and this is an amazing story of one man's spiritual journey and God's faithfulness in dark days. Thank you for offering this program.—Lynne
I was captivated by part 1 of Jake DeShazer's story this morning on ION TV. I have to have the complete set. Thank you for a great treat every Sunday morning before church.—Becky
We, my daughters and I, were thrilled to see this available on DVD. We are not always able to see DOD in the morning and we love when you have programs like this. We all feel this type of program helps us to learn more about Jesus, the Bible and enriches our spiritual life. We would love to see more programs like this, we also have the Peter DVD with Michael Card and use that for continuing study. Thanks so much for offering this and letting us be a part of the DOD ministry each month.
think the program was great and gave a lot of insight into the scripture.—Norman
Thank you for the That You May Be Certain series. Michael Card does such a great job in presenting God's truth and making the Bible come alive and relevant to today.—Robert
The series done by Michael Card on the Gospel of Luke was very enlightening. It meant even more that he was able to walk on the same soil as the gospel unfolds. Thank you Michael for taking the time to share Lukes gospel with us in a way that makes it more real in todays world.—Kathy
Love your program; especially today; I have a friend at work who I need to share this with because she is really a skeptic and very well educated, one who can argue because she believes in logic. Thank you for your program and praise to God for your dedication in bring us the WORD. —Ruth
We had a student die during football camp and a teacher’s wife was burned to death in a car accident that caught fire. Her husband is not only a teacher, but a southern baptist pastor. Both these were Christians as far as I know so they went to heaven. Yet the terrible aspects of death shocked and rocked our community. This program I hope will help in some way. —James
Just within the past 2 weeks, a coworker in the elementary school I work, asked me that famous question: Why do bad things happen to good people? We only had a few minutes to talk, and then the following Sunday you air Oz Guinness. Thank you. I always enjoy DOD on Sunday mornings before leaving for church. Helps prepare my heart for worship, along with the great teaching
and/or encouragement I receive. Thank you for your faithfulness.
I woke up this morning to find your show already in progress, but it captured my attention immediately. The way it was delivered being strong, down to earth, and humble. It was very informative and I thank you for your belief and hope. God bless you. —Tonya
I enjoy Michael Card's music and teaching. It was the 1st time that I heard DOD on TV. Thanks you very much for your ministry.—Susan
Thanks again, really enjoyed the insight on this one. He did a great job.God Bless your ministry.—Pastor Ron
Thanks for this insight into how God uses ordinary people! What a need! God bless.
I only caught the last half of the program, but as a retired educator, I was inspired by her faith. We have so many resources in our educational system, but not as much love and appreciation for them. I want to show this video to my grandchildren to encourage them to work harder and appreciate what God has provided them in this country. It has also encouraged me to pray more for those serving Him in foreign nations.—John
Today's story about Nadine Hennesey's story of teaching in Kosovo especially touched my heart. I am also a teacher and have spent time in Kazakhstan with the Peace Corps teaching in a Children's Home. At this time, I know that I am free to go and teach again overseas and have been prayerfully seeking Gods' direction. Thank you for this story of her life of faith. Although life has many twists and turns, our Savior remains faithful and constant. I could not live without this Hope.
God bless your work as you are a blessing.
I just came in from a long day-and I turned on my television to tune into the I Have a Song by Shannon Wexelberg -- and it was so encouraging and so affirming in how we are to live this life believing in the promise of Jesus that he will never leave us nor forsake us. Thank you for making this possible-- and my thanks and blessings to Shannon and her family. God is Faithful. —CW
I so appreciate Shannon's testimony and the expression of her love for the Lord in her songs! Thank you for making these available. May your ministry continue to be blessed and a blessing. —Cathy
I woke up and turned the tv on and the 1st thing on the tv was this lovely woman singing with such a beautiful voice. The words touched me and gave me strength specially on times when one is struggling with one self. God works in amazing ways. Thank you Shannon Wexelberg for your gift that God gave you and sharing it with us. God Bless You.—Silvia
I love Shannon's songs. They are so heartfelt, so comforting, and point us to the Lord Who is our Comforter. Hearing of the pain the family has gone thru and still face, and her praise given out through it all is remarkable and comforting to us all. Thank you for airing these broadcasts. We look forward to them each week and share them with others.—Christine
This is above average programming and covers a lot of hurts in our country. I Plan to send this DVD to my grandson who has served two terms in Iraq and will probably be going to Afghanistan. He gets discouraged while he's in the U.S.—Steve
I saw your DOD presentation on television. Our son was injured in Iraq and medically released from the Army almost 2 years ago and is going through a lot of physical and mental problems. He has just been able to get treatment through the VA and still waiting for his disability benefits so my wife and I are supporting him and his wife and 2 children. We have been trying to understand what he is going through and I think this film will help us.—Tom & Linda
The DVD on Post traumatic stress syndrome and faith in Christ is so important to millions of former service people and their families especially for our Vietnam generation. Now I'm thinking of the Iraqi Gulf War veterans and Afghanistan war too. My father was a World War II U.S. Army veteran stationed in France and Germany as a cannonierre. Our family knew every day that Dad was permanently affected by the war and it greatly affected my life and still does. Fortunately for us Dad came to faith in Jesus Christ in the 1950's and left his alcohol habit or it could have been much worse for us as he was emotionally very disturbed by the warrior spirit, the maniac spirit that one learns in battle sleeping in tents in the open country under enemy attack constantly. Well, I could go on. One day when Christ returns we will truly be able to say "The war is over!" Halleluia. —James
I am blessed by God with your many fine programs that teach God's truth. I am particularly fond of the programs that take us to the Holy Land because I do not believe I will ever have the means to visit there in my lifetime...God willing I will. I am also very appreciative of those programs that teach us our Jewish roots to our faith...such as those with Meno Kalisher "The Oneness of God" and now this series "The Unbreakable Promise" is wonderful. Praise God! God bless and thank you for bringing us God's truth to us daily. —Ken
Just watched Michael Rydelnik this morning in the 3-part series, "The Unbreakable Promise". He is such a good teacher! I've just ordered the series to teach/show the women at the local prison ministry. I know God will teach them many things through this wonderful series. Thank you for making it so affordable.
In Him, —Sandy
Today’s show on David helped answer a question I have been pondering. Our Sunday school class has been going through the book of Kings and it keeps mentioning "The Heart of David" Today's teacher talked about David being more concerned with God's reputation than his own safety. Jesus was also more concerned about God and our salvation than his own well being. He referred to the story of David and Goliath. David was convinced of God's involvement in the lives of men. Yesterday I said to myself I would love to hear about the heart of David from a Jew and today you provided that. See God is involved in your lives providing what his people need too. Thank you! God Bless. —Tim
The Dawning, Part I helps to get a closer view of how people lived in those ancient days. It makes me realize that those people also struggled with much of the issues we struggle with in our daily lives. I also realize how hopeful Christ's message must have been to the less fortunate of that society at that time.
I discovered your DVD's at my sister's house and they are just what I was looking for to help me quench my thirst for information about Jesus and Christianity. They answer my questions, point me in the right direction and fill the void the secular world cannot fill. THX!!! Keep doing the wonderful work you are doing.
Many Blessings, —Ruth
My husband and I are really loving this show ("The Dawning"). It's chock full of historical facts and challenges us to rethink what true Christianity is supposed to be. Thanks for providing excellent Christian programming, both on DOD & DTW.
I believe this week was my first exposure to your documentary "The Dawning" (Part IV). I especially enjoyed the calm, clear, and sincere effective exposition on the part played by the geography of Ephesus and the insights into the multicultural peoples who habitated the region in the infancy of the "Gathering Place" of the foundling church. The affective pressures on a more (or less) informed population then ... and now ... are profound indeed.—John
Always Great, love the historical perspective on all your programs. Keep up the good works. Thank you.—Frank
Thank you for your ministry. I have learned a lot and enjoy making connections between the Old and New Testaments and seeing the places where the stories happened.—Nancy
I appreciate your informal, friendly tours in Israel to help me understand what Our Lord saw in some way when He walked the earth. Thank You for sharing the Lord with everyone and reaching out to help more people ask for His Salvation!—John
Again, I thank your ministry for the fantastic program on Wilderness and what it reveals about our God! It is one of your best ever and I have been watching your program for years. Thank you!!!—John
I teach at an inner city Christian school and am looking forward to show this DVD to the students for all the reasons given...that they can catch a vision of the beauty of God in all that He has created. Thank you.—Evelyn
Thank you so much for doing this series. God has given us so much beauty in our surroundings, but so often we do not take the opportunity to stop and enjoy. We rob ourselves of that joy. May God bless your efforts.—Benny
The program explains the history and truth so gently and beautifully, it will help so many to have a better understanding of the truth about Israel. This video is suitable for people of all beliefs, I believe it will light a fire in the hearts of so many.
The Lord opened the door for me to go to Israel and yes it changed my life. I am so excited to share the DVD with the unbelieving members of my family.—Cecilia
I lead a Saturday morning men's discussion group. We have been talking about how culture including our own has effected our attitudes and ideas about different people and people groups which may or may not be in line with what God thinks about them. We need to look through the eyes of God at people and realize he cares for them as much as he cares for us. I think your program this week speaks to that issue very well. I will show this DVD to the group. May God continue to Bless you and give your team relevant topics for today as you endeavor to communicate the mind of the Lord to people around the world. —Stan
We have a nice library of your Sunday DOD videos ... but this one is going to be the most treasured. I have been to Jaffa ... now I understand it! God has truly blessed your ministry!—RDH
Wonderful. I did not know the slaves were sending secret messages through the songs they sang, i.e., Steal Away. Thank you.—Doreen
This morning I woke up to Mr. Phipps singing songs my mom use to sing to us while she was cooking. My mom is older now and suffering form Alzheimer's/Dementia and she doesn't sing them anymore, so these songs are very dear to me. Some of them I remembered the words and some I did not. Thank you for giving me back the memory.—Perlian
I was compelled and so uplifted by this week's show. The weather was so miserable here in northern PA that I knew I wouldn't be able to make it to Church. Nevertheless, the presentation pulled me into a better frame of mind and certainly closer to God. When I think of the trials the slaves went thru and still were able to create such beauty in music to honor God AND themselves as people, my concerns seemed so trivial. Thank you. Blessings on you!—Joan
Thank you so much for your ever-faithful, clear presentation of the Gospel, and valuable foundational facts and information. I always appreciate the work you and your Day of Discovery Family do. Grace and Peace in Jesus, —Carolann
Today's program concerning false gospels being promoted was excellent, and much needed. Thank you for being on top of present day issues! —Carl
We (my husband & I) just LOVE both DOD and DTW. The current DOD program provides great information that can be used in our apologetics discussions with family members who are currently being mislead by all the new age teachings that pervade our culture. Thank you for sharing the truth with humility, as we are all called to do.Sincerely, —Colleen V.
This program is a great reminder of the grace and encouragement Jesus gives us everyday. It reminds me too that all strength and help is from Him. Thank you for this beautiful, sensitive, docudrama. May the Lord bless you always.—J.L.J.
I cried because I did not know how much help was given to my people for their freedom. Thank you for the program.—Mary
I was quite taken with the program you presented on this evening. I could not move from front and center of my television. This program, which I just happened upon while flipping channels, was very enlightening. Thank you for your insight and timely presentation. At times I found myself in tears. Thank you! Please send me A Christmas Journey to Freedom DVD. God bless you all in Jesus’ name!—Ms. Joel W., Memphis, TN
Thank you so much for tackling this issue. We have experienced abuse and bad advice in our own family and it is difficult to get Christian resources. There is so much bad advice from pastors who have no experience or training and take a black and white approach. Many times they may make bad situations worse. God Bless you. —Ron
Thank you for this program on spousal abuse. You are saving lives physically and emotionally and spiritually. After reading and viewing the resources, I intend to donate to the church library. —Charlene
The series on domestic abuse is so well done that, as a psychologist, I just had to have it. Thanks. —Susan
For many years now, your Day of Discovery programs have uplifted me spiritually, taught me about and shown me places I've never been...The Holy Lands, and tickled my funny bone. I always look forward to seeing you weekly. This program though took me by surprise to a place I didn't want to go again. I cried through much of it. Prayed. and just was amazed to still have so many feelings since the divorce in 1978. Of course the restraining order was granted in 1996.
I have never heard other women tell my story like this. I have been so self-deprecating. This is a tough spot to be in. I would not be alive if it weren't for God's love and help. I have never been able to bring myself to remarry. I look forward to receiving this gift. I think the Lord and I are ready to go another mile of healing. Thank you for your love for God and His Word and your faithfulness to His leading. God Bless you. —Marilyn
I thoroughly love to see, first of all, Arab and Jew sitting together! Secondly, they are both so in love with our Lord! Thank you for making these resources that you so freely give, available to everyone. It's so very much appreciated. God bless you all for what you are doing in the name of Christ. Til we meet again. — Valerie
I have loved the series "Following Jesus in a Land of Conflict." I am a student of the Word and this has enlightened my study. It helped to understand why the Jews were a "chosen" people - that God is not a respecter of people, but he gave to the Jews more responsibility to carry his message to the people of the world and that they have a greater responsibility to care for the people of the world. Thank you for this resource. God's continued blessing to your ministry.— Carlene
I was extremely impressed with your interview with the Arab and Jew gentlemen. You were very fair and loving and non-judgmental while providing many new and fascinating facts. I have just ordered the DVD and can hardly wait to share it with others. My wife has been telling me for years about your show, and now I see why she is so impressed. I guess I'm a "nominal" Christian, mostly because of all the hypocrisy and lack of genuine love and tolerance I see in the name of Christ. And I've got to say that this whole "Zionism" thing has been one of the worst offenders in my opinion. YOU are an excellent example of what all Christians should act like - with believers and non-believers. — Hugh
All your shows on DOD are amazing but there was something so wonderful about this mornings broadcast. You have given me a whole new perspective and a much deeper appreciation for the Old Testament and how the Jews of Christ's day perceived it. I often wonder how I would have reacted if I were a gentile living at the time Jesus appeared. Would I have accepted Him? I'd like to think I would have. Thank you so much for your work and ministries. Forever grateful. — Sallie
I am a first time viewer and I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed the teaching on today’s show. I found it so simply put that it was powerful enough to make the point. Thank you for all that you do and may the Lord bless you.— Carlos
I am very interested in knowing more about our Jewish Roots & I found your program very informative! The section discussing the Shema & the two Hebrew words for 'one' was so enlightening. My son sat down with me & started watching. Also because you are there in Jerusalem walking where Jesus walked it adds another dimension to my understanding. Thank you for this program. — Wendy
I am surrounded by skeptics and am always on the lookout for material that explains Jesus in a conceivable manner. This program I believe did that very well. Thank you. — George
Just wanted you to know that this series has been especially helpful in putting together the facts which establish Jesus as all three - Man, Messiah, and God Himself. Thank you so much for the great work that you do! Blessings to all of your team! — Gay
I have especially loved this series on the historical Jesus. I think it is very important that people can see the correlation between history and the Bible. I find that it is very difficult to witness to someone who doesn't believe the Bible is inerrant. Any way that we can prove through history that the events in the Bible actually happened is awesome. I appreciate the efforts of the scholars in this series and your own dedication to this program. Thank you. — Mary
I really enjoy your programs each Sunday morning! Amazingly, I have just studied on the subject you and the other gentlemen were discussing today. Seeing the background of Caesarea Philippi on TV today made the gospel "come alive" even more to me. —Randall
Great stuff! With all the skeptic-biased documentaries on TV these days that try to discredit Biblical truth (only by being historically or scientifically dishonest), it's great to see any academically founded counterarguments being presented on TV. People need to hear the other side, or they will think the skeptic view is the only one out there while the honest facts are being censored. Thanks for all you do in bringing the truth to light! —Mark
Thank you for your service to the family of Christ. Dr. Rydelnik's testimony is one of the most moving things I have ever seen. It was like watching the eyes of a blind man be restored by the word of God, verse by verse as the scripture revealed the truth of who the Messiah was and is. Thank you for your program and your love of Christ. —Nancy
Dr Rydelnik's story of his conversion was a heartwarming one and very interesting. I pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Maranatha.—William
I just found your show on Jerusalem and your website. Your show is truly an eye opener. Just what I'm curious about at this point in my life. Thank you so very much. God bless! —Maggie
Behind the Easter Story is a beautiful and insightful program. I will use this CD next year for our Holy Week Bible Study fellowship. I feel you not only captured interest in facts and locations, but also demonstrated a certain Spirit of reverence. Thank You.—Gerry
Your program explained things in a way that really makes sense. If anyone has any doubts I don't think they could dispute what you have to say. And I appreciate the knowledgeable people you interviewed. These people have to be respected for the amount of research they have done and for their intelligence. Thank You for making things so clear. I have been a Christian for 45 years but I have never heard things explained in this way.—Anne
Love the setting in Israel. What I love as a believer too a dominance of evidence and belief. The early church was fully convinced and staked their life on it. We follow in their footsteps. Halleluia. I weary of cloudy doubting, but energize in clear faith. Thank you so much for your clear and wonderful testimony of faith in Christ Jesus. Even so come Lord Jesus!—Nick
Today I watched part of your program "Take Up Your Cross.” The Lord set it before my eyes! Only 2 minutes before I had decided God didn't care about ME, my health especially, and I would just forget about it. I've had a lifetime of pain, illness and 14 major surgeries, but it doesn't compare to Jesus' suffering to pay for my sin. Thank you for your program. My future is settled with Jesus & I know His love. No more pity party!! —Virginia
Thanks again for a well put together teaching. It never ceases to amaze me how GOD can use a program watched by so many and yet have personal impact on people individually. Just what I needed to hear this morning.—Ron
I had to attend a meeting at my church on Sunday earlier than usual & that was my first time viewing your telecast. I found it so interesting and intriguing. I wrote down your website address because I wanted to learn more about your ministry. Today, I took time to listen and watch some of your programs. Hours later, I felt so excited about the way you actually show on location of Jesus' teaching. Thank you for getting professors & scholars involved to rightly divide the word. I really appreciate your ministry & I have signed up to receive your newsletters. I look forward to watching your show on Sunday now. Thanks a lot!! —Linda
Enjoyed the program today about Josiah Henson on the ION network. I learned a bit of history and was proud to share in his heritage as an African American and as a believer. I live in this country today, and have come to know Christ, on the backs of slaves like Josiah, who endured great hardship but had great courage in the face of adversity. Thank you.—Karen
I found the life story of Josiah Henson to be extremely interesting. I want the DVD so I can share it with my friends. Thank you. —Helen
As an African American pastor, I appreciate and applaud a predominately white ministry for seeing the value of black history month and making an intentional effort to educate your entire viewing audience. God bless you. Continue the good work. —Pastor Leon
It was great to see that someone is making a effort to link all of God's children together as one family. And thank you for making resources available to everyone within your reach. God bless your ministry.—Harold
Thank you so much for this program in the month of Black History and the connection that we as Blacks can now have the truths of our heritage that I can not only tell my children about but show how research from the great Word of God shows that we are not excluded. THANK YOU—Jacqueline
These telecasts have been an eye opener to me. They show the other side of a coin which for too long, has only shown us one side of a historical picture.—Gifford
Thank you for putting SOIL in perspective with God's creation. —Helen Marie
What an interesting and thought provoking message. I really enjoyed the way your story reminds and causes us to reflect on the intricacy of God's creation. So simple yet so complex, much like the message of our Savior JESUS. Thanks for the effort you put in. —Pastor Ron
I have for a while now thought about the soil and how important it is to have healthy soil for the fruits and vegetables that we're eating. Watching this program was very inspiring and enriching to me. It helped me connect to one of the things that is vitally important to our daily living. Not very often we watch such quality programming like this. Thank you so much for your contribution in this! —Rumza
Thank you for airing this program. This is one of the most practical programs regarding the effects of pornography that I have seen. It is very helpful in understanding what is actually happening spiritually and psychologically with those suffering from this addiction. I have a new hope regarding someone near and dear to my heart. I ask for your prayers that this someone will have godly sorrow and repentance with a heartfelt desire to seek God. Thank you. —Amy
Thank you for the important presentation. I think like a lot of guys I sat in stunned silence as people said things that were in my heart. A few years ago I had the “inappropriate use of the Internet” experience at work and almost lost my job. I thank God for that ordeal now because I am sure there is no way I had the courage to touch that door. One thing that wasn't mentioned (but still might be) was the pure exhaustion that comes from years of hiding “the secret”. —Terry
Very timely for me, a real message from God, thank you. I watched the first episode with my wife who was on the verge of leaving after catching me once again, just as I was realizing how empty the whole pursuit was, and this brought it all to a head, thank you again, this time I’m hoping for real salvation, I know this will work. —Michael
The uniqueness of John's Gospel and the first words spoken by Jesus in this gospel and the song sung and played at the end was a beautiful and powerful message. Looking forward to the rest of the series. Hope to use the DVD in our small group. God Bless You. —Roy
I have been to Ephesus, and wish I had seen this series before I went. Michael Card not only presents a depth of knowledge about the city and time period, but he is also very inspirational and almost poetic in his presentation. Thank you so much!! —Mary
I have been thoroughly enjoying the series the Wisdom of Ephesus. The programs not only give in-depth historical information they also have great insight for practical application. I especially enjoyed Michael Card's insights into the excuses of the paralytic that Jesus healed. They were a great lesson to me personally and helpful my struggles dealing with a needy family member who always seems to find excuses for not following through. —Joanne
Extremely good testimony. Clearly was from the heart and shows the ability of a relationship with Jesus Christ is able to change lives. Also includes a caution to follow Scripture and not other man's interpretation of Scripture. —Linda
This is a great DVD. Newhouse is open, honest and sincere in presenting the truth of the gospel. It is a dangerous journey, but a journey toward truth. —Norm
I loved this program because I know a few friends who are stuck where Mr. Newhouse had been. I am hoping that seeing someone, other than me, will help them realize how much Jesus loves them. Thank you for all you do. With love in Christ, —Buffy
This continuation on the Book of Romans is one of the most informational I have ever previewed. As always your attention to historical and scriptural details is unmatched. Thank you for providing these studies for the public. —Don
Just tuned in this morning, thought it was great. It gave me added insight into Romans that I can use. —Clark
Thank you so much for the continuing fine programming that allows me to see the countries I will probably never get to travel to and the messages that make them so special to me. I appreciate your coverage of the materials and the insights of the cultures and customs that allow a clearer understanding of the text. Again thanks for the years of service. —Pam
Thanks for your faithfulness to teaching the message of God's word through "every means." Today's program is so timely. God bless you as you serve Him.—Linda
I love your show. I have never visited Jerusalem but with your program, I am there. I am in the Mount of Olives, on the Temple Mount as well.—Camillia
You do an excellent job at bringing not only a biblical understanding, but also the political issues that have religious under pinnings. I watch you every Sunday
before church. You are very generous with all your materials. God bless your efforts.—Winston
Your account of Abraham's purchase at Hebron is most significant to me at this time. I have been in study with a small group for almost one year about the life of Abraham. Your DVD is and will continue to be a wonderful visual understanding to enhance my learning. I hope to look through your archives to locate additional DVDs on the life of Abraham. Perhaps God will have a purpose for me to offer this information to others at the right time. In conclusion, I must mention I watch faithfully every Sunday all your programs because you allow the truth of our Lord's messages and promises to be seen, explained and cherished. Thank you for the ministry you so excellently put forth.In His will and God bless you always.—Linda
I was channel surfing, paused when I saw and heard your program this morning, and I stayed til it was over. The beauty of Shannon's voice, the lyrics, the Biblical passages and the scenery all joined to fill me, and provide refreshment and uplift to my soul as I prepared to go to church this morning. —Audrey
Thank you for the program with Shannon Wexelberg this week. I was watching it as I worked out on the elliptical before church. I was depressed about a situation with one of my kids and her music and words of hope were exactly what I needed today! Thank you!
Your ministry over the years has blessed me in so many ways, but most importantly has drawn me more closely to the Lord. I especially love the shows that feature Shannon Wexelberg. Her music touches my heart like no other female vocalist! Keep up the great work in service to our Lord!! —Marcia
I was Blessed deeply by the music this AM. The scenery was also very beautiful. Those young Ladies are very gifted....God Bless you and the Ministry. —Rebecca
Beautiful program, this lets us visit other parts of the world and see more of GOD'S wonderful creation; thanks. —William
This week's show was amazing! It is beautiful and exalts God! In its simplicity it is incredibly powerful! Thank you! —B
My wife,Rosie, and I loved the presentation on George Washington Carver. Rosie is African-American and grew up in Mississippi where black history is extremely important to her family and to many blacks in the South. What she had heard prior to your telecast all focused on George Washington Carvers accomplishments in the scientific community but had little if nothing to say about his strong faith in Christ. Besides being a pastor I also help run a large YMCA. You can bet we'll be sharing this impactful DVD with our members and Rosie and I will be passing it on to our children. Thanks again for such a great job! God Bless. —Pastor David
My wife and I were watching your program this morning before we went to Church and found the life of George Washington Carver to be very interesting and encouraging. We can't even begin to understand the circumstances that he went through during that very turbulent time in American History. What an incredible testimony to his Christian Heritage and his people. —Mark
We find your ministry INVALUABLE! We have used many of your resources as gifts to hurting people in search of God' answers for their life events. We have a marriage ministry we've been involved with (our whole 15 1/2 yrs. of marriage) ~ called "Great Marriages God's Way". We look forward to using this DVD "Loves Lasting Call" with others. —Bob & Eve
We were especially pleased to see the contribution that Howard Hendricks & his wife made to the video. We are sorry to say we have not seen any other part but theirs. Honest communication about marriage is so vital, and we can use all the resources we can get in our biblical counseling ministry. Thanks so much. —Linda
Thanks for 2 weeks of very moving and informative messages. May God continue to bless your ministry with a far reaching impact. —Pastor Ron
THANK YOU for featuring the moving and inspiring story of the Backstrom family, their unimaginable loss, and their faith practiced in real time. Their witness of abiding faith has been a real gift to me.—Gail
God Bless you for this series. There are so many tragedies and difficult times nowadays and people are losing faith or unable to come to faith because of it. This world needs the hope of Christ and I thank you for giving that to us. We may not have answers this side of Heaven, but we have a God who does have the answers. In Jesus Love, —Pam
The last two programs have been great. This loss of life happened in our town two or three years ago. I wish we could have had this tool to help all those who grieved and still are. —Rex
Awesome was the word that came to mind...but even that word makes the importance of the message seem some how "trivial." How can one say - it brought me hope in the midst of no hope. Only a person who feels no hope can even begin to understand those words. God bless you. —Marsha
