Our first guest is Dr. Mark Johnson the author of “What is a Covenant?: God’s Plan for Our Best Lives Our Hope for Our Future” (Covenant Relationship Series). In this first of the series, we find the world is attempting to redefine marriage and a relationship with God in accord with ever-shifting cultural views. In sharp contrast, God has had a specific plan for these two relationships in place from the beginning. Both are termed Covenant Relationships. There is little current teaching in the Christian community about the structure, function, and purposes―or even the definition―of these relationships.
Dr. Johnson is not a credentialed, licensed, academically certified purported expert on life, which may be his greatest strength. He has developed successful medical practices in two different medical specialties, is very happily married, has seven grown children, and architected his own home. Throughout adult life, his main passion has been understanding how people grow and change to live better lives, or why they do not.
