Christian Resistance: Learning to Defy the World and Follow Jesus - Part 2

Guest: James Spencer, Ph.D.

Jonathan Evans and Kanika Evans

Host: Dr. Tim Clinton

September 22, 2022

Within two short years, Jonathan Evans, the son of Dr. Tony Evans, and his wife, Kanika, lost eight members of their family, including Jonathan’s beloved mother, Lois. Their deaths shook the couple to their core. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Jonathan, a former NFL fullback, concludes that the Lord allows such trials in our lives not to pull us apart, but to push the Body of Christ together. Just like 9/11 united America, our hardships unite the community and produce perseverance. In his new book, Fighting Your Battles: Every Christian’s Playbook for Victory, Jonathan proclaims our greatest ministry will come out of our greatest misery.
