What is the result if America abandons its role of the world’s policeman, and what have been the real-world effects of that foreign-policy perspective? Bret Stephens, foreign affairs columnist and deputy editorial page editor at the Wall Street Journal, joins Janet to talk about his book, “America in Retreat.” And is there a Christian way to think about sports? Shirl James Hoffman stops by to discuss his book, “Good Game.” Plus: In light of President Obama’s executive amnesty, is it time for Christians to reconsider God’s perspective on the role and requirements of civil government and its leaders? We’ll talk about it. That and more — join us! 1-800-343-9282.

The Best Friend by J.C. Ryle (1816-1900)
