On this week’s episode of “The Cross and the Jukebox,” I talk to Adam Dorsey, the writer of the hit song “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” recorded by Craig Morgan. Adam is now a pastor in California, and he has a unique perspective on life both sides of Music Row.

Give Them Grace

In a couple weeks the best parenting book ever (IMHO) will be available. Elyse Fitzpatrick and her daughter Jessica Thompson co-wrote a gospel-drenched book for parents entitled “Give Them Grace.” If you are a parent (as I am), there is no better book to read than this one.
