NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 6, 2013) – Ed Stetzer, president of LifeWay Research, will be hosting Praise the Lord on Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) Friday, Jan. 10.

On the show, Stetzer will hear from megachurch pastor Matt Chandler about the story of his brain tumor, God’s providence and Chandler’s presentation of the Gospel. At The Village Church in Texas, Chandler has been preaching on the message of recovery through the Gospel. This message will be shared in a major release called Recovering Redemption (B&H Publishing Group), releasing in May 2014.

Also featured is New York Times best-selling author Priscilla Shirer, who will be discussing how personal weaknesses are God’s strength. She will also share about her family and her personal story. Shirer has been on tour the past few months encouraging others to increase their trust in the Lord with her latest release, God is Able (B&H Publishing Group).

Other guests on this episode included New York Times best-selling author Jefferson Bethke, with musical guests Josh Wilson and Chris August.

Stetzer regularly hosts Praise the Lord and is currently planning three more shows for the Spring. Stetzer is the author of multiple books including his upcoming release, Transformational Groups (B&H Publishing Group), which he co-authored with Eric Geiger, Vice President of the Church Resource Division at LifeWay. In Transformational Groups, Stetzer and Geiger outline the characteristics of churches that are making transformed disciples through group-based ministry-whether small groups, missional communities, Sunday School, or some other expression of groups.
