Overview

Does watching the news make you wonder where all the good has gone?

Another unnerving story could be as close as the next newscast. Even though we don't always notice, God is there, in the news, behind the headlines. You just have to look.

With insider knowledge of the media, television journalist Jody Dean shares how he found God at work in some of the biggest news events of the past thirty years. He takes a look at stories surrounding the Oklahoma City bombing, the space shuttle Columbia explosion, the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and the war in Iraq. Dean also describes his interactions with the likes of former President Jimmy Carter and pro football quarterback John Elway, showing encouraging evidence that God continues to work in the hearts and lives of people everywhere.
