Topic: Erasing American History

A nation that does not remember its past does not know its future. James S. Robbins, Ph.D., a writer for USA TODAY, has written a new book, Erasing AmericaLosing Our Future by Destroying Our Past. The reason he wrote the book is described this way: “In towns and cities across America, a tidal wave of social activism is systematically erasing pieces of American history. Driven by the relentless Left, activists destroy monuments, burn flags, ban American literature, and disregard the national anthem. Before long, there will no longer be monuments dedicated to American heroes, no stories that praise them. The United States will have become a dark chapter in human history, best forgotten.” David Horowitz endorses the tome, calling it “a richly informed book about the campaign to demonize America by erasing and then rewriting its history.” Dr. James S. Robbins joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss why the struggle to understand America’s true past is important to the present and the future. @James_Robbins

Topic: Spiritual Warfare

There’s an intriguing book on spiritual warfare by New York Times best-selling author Craig Parshall. He is a lawyer, serving as Special Counsel in Washington, D.C. with the American Center for Law and Justice (Jay Sekulow’s group). Parshall’s latest novel deals with spiritual warfare and human trafficking. Much of the action in The Empowered (Tyndale House Publishers) takes place in New Orleans, and the novel is quite a page-turner. Craig Parshall joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the novel, human trafficking, and spiritual warfare.

Many today—including millennials—are clamoring for “free tuition.” Many Democratic presidential hopefuls, such as self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders, are calling for free college tuition for all. But Dr. Gary Wolfram, an economics professor at Hillsdale College, says while this may sound good, in reality, it has some harmful long-term effects. In a recent piece for Fox Business, Wolfram penned, “Free college tuition is likely to result in a misallocation of resources, including the time of young people in the country, and have little if no positive effect on the employability and income of the poor.” Dr. Gary Wolfram joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss “free” college tuition and what’s wrong with it. www.hillsdale.edu

Topic: Work, vocation, calling

Many years ago, an arena filled with business people was asked this question: “If you went home tonight and found that a long lost relative had died and left you ten million dollars, would you be at work tomorrow?” “NO!” shouted the crowd. Meanwhile, a Gallup poll “found that 77 percent of Americans hate their jobs.” So writes Hugh Whelchel, who studied the issue of work, of vocation, of calling, for many years. He wrote a book called How Then Should We Work? Rediscovering the Biblical Doctrine of Work. Hugh is the executive director of the Institute for Faith, Work & Economics. Does our work matter before God? Certainly. Hugh Whelchel joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss work, vocations, callings. www.tifwe.org
