The Cross in the Shadow
of the Crescent (224 page book by
Islam is on the rise all over
the West, including America. In this compelling new book, bestselling author
Erwin Lutzer urges Christians to see this as both an opportunity to share
the gospel and a reason for concern.
We have now reached a tipping point--the spread of Islam is rapidly altering
the way we live. These changes are cause for alarm, for they endanger our
freedoms of speech and religion.
Eric Barger calls this "a courageous book that every believer needs to read!"
The Rise, Fall, and
Redemption of America (Newly Updated 2012)
The Supreme Court declared America to be a
"Christian Nation." But were the Founding Fathers confused deists, outright
pagans, or authentic Bible-believing Christians? On what principles was
America actually founded? And above all, why is it important to us today?
Newly updated and recorded in 2012, Eric
Barger's seminar presentation includes powerful visuals, inspirational
quotes, many Scriptures, and boldly proclaims a biblical warning to our
is a growing and increasingly widespread movement inside mainline and
Evangelical churches which attempts to join Islam and Christianity. Based on
the premise that both religions worship the same deity, "Chrislam" is
gaining followers and becoming a favorite among the politically correct.
The Bible implores
every believers to stand by, stand with, and stand for the authentic
faith "once delivered unto the saints" (Jude 3). However, sincere Christians
experience doubt and confusion when it comes to
“apologetics” or “polemics.” In this new DVD teaching, Eric Barger
systematically reviews Scripture and Church history to help equip you in
being a “Faith Defender.”

Jan Markell and co-host Eric Barger quiz former Muslim
Brotherhood operative Walid Shoebat about a dozen topics
including the love the Left has for Islam, the real reason behind the
Benghazi disaster, Hillary Clinton's embarrassing testimony last
January and the purpose of the mission there, and the strange Clinton/Abedin/Weiner
relationship. Jan asks Walid if Barack Obama is perceived as a Muslim
in the Islamic world. Walid then reveals the tie to Wahabbist Islam
and the Obama family and the troubling associations of Obama's brother
Malik. Obama glorifies his Islamic terror associations and heritage
and denounces his Christian side and Shoebat explains why. Shoebat
states that the church is being fooled by Islam and that Islam is
infiltrating the church through devious means. The three discuss many
of those efforts including "The Common Word", Chrislam, and more. Find
Shoebat's book, "The Case for Islamophobia: Jihad by the
Sword--America's Final Warning,"
here. Note: this ministry is not in complete eschatological
agreement with Shoebat but his warnings concerning Islam must be taken
seriously! Listen Here.

Apostasy's Results: The Scattering of the Sheep
Jan Markell and Eric Barger discuss the continuing
demise of evangelical Christianity (April 27-28, 2013). They alert listeners of another denomination
biting the dust due to liberalism and Emergent philosophy.
John Haller from the Columbus (Ohio) Bible Prophecy Conference also
weighs in on the compromise of this denomination. Also discussed is Barger's
recent experience at yet another Emergent-based conference, “Jesus and the Quran,”
which promotes the notion that Allah is Jehovah and “Isa” (the Muslim Jesus) is
actually Jesus Christ of the Bible. Then Eric updates a story we covered on last
week’s "Understanding the Times" program (April
20, 2013) as he interviews Dr. Ron
Crews of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty about the recent
U.S. Army Reserve training that called evangelicals "religious extremists." This

The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent. Dr. Lutzer has hit a home
run with his insights into what Islam is up to. This is a wake-up call to the
church as well. Lutzer gets into "appeasement" issues by the current
administration which are delusional and he talks about other current issues that
trouble him concerning Islam, America, and the West. This is no ordinary book or
radio discussion on this topic. The inroads of Islam are startling and Jan, Eric
and Lutzer reference the warnings of Frank Gaffney, Andrew McCarthy, Clare
Lopez, Eric Stakelback, Gen. Boykin, and more. Find Lutzer's book

roll world. Also, don't miss today's special Web bonus as we continue the

however. It's told with humor, compassion, and grace.
