Our host, Kerby Anderson, will bring us an update from the week and let us know what to expect for the long weekend. In the first hour he is joined by Jonathan Saenz, who will be discussing the upcoming Texas Values D/FW Luncheon. Then at the top of the hour, Brian Kilmeade, co-host of Fox and Friends, joins Kerby. They will be talking about Brian’s new book, “Sam Houston and the Alamo Avengers.” In the final hour Daniel Ray, James Walker, Bill Kluck will join Kerby in-studio to talk about The Atheist/Christian Book Club.
Every weekday morning, Kilmeade provides viewers with the latest on the breaking news, sports, politics and entertainment. During his tenure at Fox News, he has developed the ability to interview and provide insight into newsmakers, politicians, celebrities and athletes. On any given day you might see him with former President George W. Bush, Michael Jordan, Simon Cowell, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, or supermodel Miranda Kerr. His radio show features many Fox personalities, big names guests and somehow still manages to cover the news of the day with seriousness and a smile.
Sam Houston and the Alamo Avengers recaptures this pivotal war that changed America forever, and sheds light on the tightrope all war heroes walk between courage and calculation. Thanks to Kilmeade's storytelling, a new generation of readers will remember the Alamo--and recognize the lesser-known heroes who snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.
He completed his master's thesis on Planet Narnia under the guidance of the author, Dr. Michael Ward. His dream of one day putting together a God-glorifying book & video series about the heavens from a biblical perspective has come true. He does interior painting on the side.
