NASHVILLE, Sept. 6, 2012 /Standard Newswire/ -- NRB Network's new fall lineup launches next week featuring programming that calls Christians to renewed faith in the aftermath of 9/11, and to better understand and love their Muslim neighbors.
"God's people need revival," says evangelist Anne Graham Lotz on "A Wake Up Call For God's People," a two-hour 9/11 special featuring Lotz, the daughter of Billy Graham, and best-selling author Joel Rosenberg. The program, which includes music from the four-time Dove-award winning worship team Selah, airs Tues., Sept. 11, at 8 pm and midnight ET.
While America "woke up to evil" on 9/11, "we, as God's people, need to wake up in our relationship with God," says Lotz on the special which originally simulcast on the ten-year anniversary of 9/11.
Rosenberg, the author of multiple New York Times bestsellers, including The Last Jihad and Epicenter, discusses biblical prophecy and current events that point, he believes, to the soon return of Jesus Christ. Lotz issues a stirring challenge, urging the church to ready itself for the return of Jesus by repenting of sin and recommitting to the proclamation of the Gospel.
"Dare to Love," a new weekly series from Call of Love Ministries, airs Thursdays at 6:30 pm ET on the NRB Network and explores the religion of Islam, using interviews, documentaries, testimonies, viewers' questions and more to help Christians introduce their Muslim neighbors to Jesus Christ.
While geared to helping Christians respond to America's growing Muslim population with compassion and understanding, "Dare to Love" also takes on hard and controversial questions, such as, "Is Allah of the Koran the same as the God of the Bible?"
Host Samya Johnson, a believer in Jesus who grew up Muslim, says "Dare to Love" seeks to give viewers "a new way to think about the Muslims who live in our community." Her hope is "that together we can face our fears and maybe bitterness toward Muslims.... and eventually love the Muslims around us and reach them with the message of the Gospel."
Along with "A Wake Up Call For God's People" and "Dare to Love," the new fall NRB Network offerings includes new programs for women, children, and teenagers. To see the entire lineup, visit www.NRBNetwork.tv where you can also watch online.
NRB Network airs on DIRECTV channel 378, on SkyAngel channel 181, via online video streaming at www.nrbnetwork.tv, and on select local affiliates.
