This week I got to interview Jeremy Mangerchine on the podcast to discuss his recent book The Longest Bridge Across Water: An Ordinary Man’s Encounters with an Unordinary God.
Thanks to technology, I was able to talk to him while he sat parked somewhere in New Orleans on his cell phone while I sat at my desk in Peru. I’ve been doing this show for years, and I still get jazzed up about the fact I can basically have a conversation with anybody in the world thanks to the internet, and record it.
A number of months ago I saw a previous guest and friend Praying Medic recommend and even post an excerpt of Jeremy’s book on his blog. Since Jeremy has been offering his book for only 99 cents, I grabbed it. I started it almost immediately and was quickly taken in not only at how compelling it was, but because it was relatable — something Jeremy admits having a double edged reaction to hearing. Much like the time we interviewed Eric Gimour (How To Experience God’s Presence).
After inviting him on the show, Jeremy was up for it.
- Does God still speak to ordinary people like you and me?
- Do you have to get up at 4 am to pray for hours in order to hear His voice?
- Does God speak the same way to everybody?
- What role does discipline play in the Christian life. Is it legalistic?
Among several other things.
Sit back and relax as you listen to this episode and when you’re done, you’ll feel like getting in God’s presence!
