I’m also here to interview two important thought leaders for the Focus on the Family daily broadcast: my conversation with author Dr. Bill Bennett on the topic “Is College Worth It?” should air this June.

The second person I’m interviewing for our daily broadcast is the influential senior pastor of New York City’s famed Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Dr. Tim Keller.

 Keller has earned the respect of countless Christians around the world – including me – for his thoughtful writing and sermons on a variety of topics, including apologetics, marriage and earthly idols. He has a new book out now, “Walking with God through Pain and Suffering,” that will be the topic of our broadcast.

I’m including a sneak peek into our conversation in the video below (those of you visiting on a mobile device can watch it on YouTube). The broadcast with Tim Keller will air in September  – and as you can see from the short snippet, it will be a program worth listening to.

And before you think I’m all work, no play, I want to add a personal note. With Jean on a woman’s retreat, I brought my sons, Trent and Troy, with me on this trip. (Jean’s final words to me before leaving were, “Don’t lose the boys.”) All three of us are excited about our plans tonight to watch the New York Yankees play the Los Angeles Angels in the Bronx.
