Episode 58: Monica Cline: What Planned Parenthood Taught Me - Tuesday, September 29, 2020

Join Jonathan for an eye-opening two-part conversation with Monica Cline. For over a decade, Monica worked in HIV prevention education, comprehensive sex education as a Title X family planning Training Manager, and as a volunteer educator for Planned Parenthood.

During this time, she came to learn that serving the marginalized meant meeting them where they are and then leaving them there. A combination of that philosophy, her experience in the community, and her own personal testimony prompted her to question comprehensive sex education and Planned Parenthood crisis pregnancy counseling. Her questions and concerns were not welcomed by her superiors and she was told she was not welcome if she was not in agreement with their approach.

In part 1, Monica boldly exposes what she learned in her training at Planned Parenthood. She also shares the truth behind comprehensive sex education and the harm it causes our children, families, and communities. Her goal is to encourage parents to “reclaim Parenthood” and become their children’s greatest advocates and educators.

Episode 57: Dr. Michael Youssef: Living for Treasure That Lasts - Tuesday, September 22, 2020

Jonathan welcomes his father, Dr. Michael Youssef, back to Candid Conversations to discuss his new book, Treasure that Lasts: Trading Privilege, Pleasure, and Power for What Really Matters.  

Daily, we are surrounded by the temptation to glorify ourselves. We post carefully curated selfies on Instagram, chase money and pleasure, and live the "image is everything" lifestyle. We've created a culture of envy, emptiness, and depression. Even the church has bought into worldly values of wealth and status. God put us on this earth not to seek our own glory but to shine the light of his glory on a dying world.

During today's candid conversation, Dr. Youssef shares from the life of Moses the importance of living for God's glory instead of the world's gold.  Listen today and discover the best place to invest your time, talent, and treasure.

If you would like to receive a copy of Treasure That Lasts, it is available now for your gift of any amount to the ministry of Leading The Way with Dr. Michael Youssef.

Episode 51: Rosaria Butterfield: The Gospel Comes with a Housekey - Tuesday, August 11, 2020

Jonathan welcomes Rosaria Butterfield to Candid Conversations to discuss building up the church to live like the family of God to provide a powerful Christian witness to your neighbors.  

Rosaria is a former tenured professor of English and women’s studies at Syracuse University. She was converted to Christ in 1999 in what she describes as a train wreck. 

In her late twenties, allured by feminist philosophy and LGBT advocacy, she adopted a lesbian identity. Rosaria earned her PhD from Ohio State University, then served in the English department and women's studies program at Syracuse University from 1992 to 2002. Her primary academic field was critical theory, specializing in queer theory. Her historical focus was 19th-century literature, informed by Freud, Marx, and Darwin. She advised the LGBT student group, wrote Syracuse University’s policy for same-sex couples, and actively lobbied for LGBT aims alongside her lesbian partner.

In 1997, while Rosaria was researching the Religious Right “and their politics of hatred against people like me,” she wrote an article against the Promise Keepers. A response to that article triggered a meeting with Ken Smith, who became a resource on the Religious Right, their Bible, a confidant, and a friend. In 1999, after repeatedly reading the Bible in large chunks for her research, Rosaria converted to Christianity. Her first book, , details her conversion and the cataclysmic fallout—in which she lost “everything but the dog,” yet gained eternal life in Christ.

Rosaria’s second book, , addresses questions of sin, identity, and repentance that she often encounters during speaking engagements. 

In her third book, , Rosaria explores how God used a humble couple’s simple invitation to dinner to draw her—a radical, committed unbeliever—to himself. With this story of her conversion as a backdrop, she invites us into her home to show us how God can use this same “radical, ordinary hospitality” to bring the Gospel to our lost friends and neighbors. 

Rosaria is married to Kent, a Reformed Presbyterian pastor in North Carolina, and is a home school mother, author, and speaker.
