Dr. John Whitcomb: May 31, 2016

Welcome to a special patriotic edition of "Encounter God’s Truth." You know Dr. John Whitcomb as a Bible teacher, author and educator. But did you know that he served in a field artillery battalion in the Army in Europe during World War II? And that his family has a rich history of military service? This week’s broadcast varies from our normal format, as we are going to listen to a portion of an interview that Brannon Howse conducted with Dr. Whitcomb on his program, “Worldview Weekend Radio,” where Dr. Whitcomb appears regularly as a guest. They held this conversation in April of 2015, after Dr. Whitcomb went to tour Washington, D.C., on the Indy Honor Flight. They discussed that memorable event, then went into some of the details that Dr. Whitcomb remembers from World War II. We are grateful for Brannon's permission to bring this unforgettable audio to you.
