“Listen my children and you shall hear of the midnight ride of Paul Revere.” Have you ever hear that thrilling line? Do you even know who Paul Revere is? If you’re under, say 30, I’m going to guess that the answer to both of these questions might be no. This is a very serious problem, but it’s not your fault.
It’s not your fault because no one bothered to teach you about this courageous man, and the great American poet who made him famous. The story of Paul Revere is part of our heritage. Thi...

Regarding comments I’ve made during this very difficult election, let me explain that I have only mentioned Bonhoeffer with regard to this election in response to those who have brought him into the conversation. Some have drawn what I think wrong and irresponsible parallels between the fascism of the National Socialists and the current GOP candidate. As the author of a book on the subject of the former, I thought these parallels understandable, but seriously mistaken. In an attempt to clarif...

I recently had the privilege of discussing my new book, IF YOU CAN KEEP IT: The Forgotten Promise of American Liberty — here is the full Q&A.
How did the idea for the book first come about?
Honestly, I’ll never forget it. I was listening to the author Os Guinness give a speech about the Founders unique idea of “ordered liberty” and he described it in terms of what he called the “Golden Triangle of Freedom.” It all made perfect sense, but I was shocked and embarrassed to realize that somehow I...

As most of you know, for the last eight weeks I’ve been hosting a national radio show! We’re on 300 stations across the country and tons of people are listening from around the world too — via podcasts and metaxastalk.com. I’ve talked to so many fun and interesting people on a huge variety of subjects. Some highlights include:
Jimmy “J.J.” Walker (aka “Kid Dyn-o-mite”) dishing about his old friend David Letterman…
NY Times columnist David Brooks talking about his #1 bestseller The Road to Ch...

This really will be the show “about everything”! To prove that, my first week’s guests include:
My very first guest, the 92-year-old Dame Alice von Hildebrand, who will tell us our first “MIRACLE MONDAY“ story...

Here is the text of Eric’s speech at the Easter Convocation of University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.
Good morning. I am so honored to have been invited to be here with you this afternoon.
I’m so glad that it was mentioned in my introduction that I wrote for VeggieTales. If you didn’t know that, now you do.
As a visitor to this august institution, I can hardly help but be struck by the tradition that you have here. This is not something that one sees very much and I can hardly...
