There was a preacher who once said, "In today's world, we need to keep a Bible in one hand and a newspaper in the other." In this particular book, the author's main source of information was the Word of God, as it had been in all of his other books; however, it was uncanny how it kept connecting with current events of 2012 and early 2013: from the summer Olympics to the fall presidential election, or the drought in the Midwest to the results of the Super Bowl. He also thought of a Bible reference with a similar thought: Jesus said, in Matthew 13:52 (NIV), "every teacher of the law who has been instructed about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old." The truths in the Scriptures have stood the test of time for thousands of years, and the "old" still shines brightly in our modern and sophisticated world. But they have "new" applications that we need now as much as Moses and Elijah needed them back then. (Perhaps this was why those godly men appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration, to talk with Jesus about the importance of His mission of mercy here among us, that would fulfill all of their hopes and dreams.) Then, in the author's own life, experiences that he had and lessons that he learned forty years ago have a connection with breaking news stories of today.
