“This is more than a moment,” Reads the HeartandSoul.org website. “More than words on a page. More than music from a stage. This is us laying it all down for something more, something real. This is our whole life given to the One who gave His all. This is His breath in our lungs, His beat in our hearts; the longing of our souls and the fire shut up in our bones. This is raw, unfiltered, unashamed. This is worship, and we’re giving Him everything we got.”
McFarland hosts a daily show on American Family Radio, a division of AFA, called “Exploring the Word,” co-hosted with Bert Harper.
McFarland recently released his latest book, “Stand Strong America,” co-authored with evangelist and apologist Jason Jimenez, who is McFarland’s co-host of the “Viral Truth” television program airing on the National Religious Broadcasters network. “Stand Strong America,” addressing the idea that Americans are weary of the poor character and decisions of their leaders, is available at AlexMcFarland.com.
He is also the author of “The God You Thought You Knew: Exposing the 10 Biggest Myths About Christianity,” in which he dispels the myths and untruths about Christianity and replaces that with the truth of who God really is, as well as “10 Questions Every Christian Must Answer,” “10 Issues that Divide Christians,” “10 Answers for Skeptics” and the “Stand” series of devotions for teens. McFarland is an expert in the field of apologetics—the practice of defending the Christian faith.
McFarland has spent years working with young people, has preached in more than 1,300 churches and has been featured at conferences such as the Billy Graham School of Evangelism, Focus on the Family’s “Big Dig” and California’s “Spirit West Coast,” sharing the platform with Chuck Colson, Eric Metaxas, Josh McDowell and others. He also serves as Director for Christian Worldview and Apologetics at the Christian Worldview Center of North Greenville University (www.ngu.edu) in Greenville, S.C.
