Kutless: 'It Is Well'

Christian rock band Kutless have sold more than 1.4 million records and become a household name for such hits as "Sea of Faces," "Run" and "To Know That You're Alive." On the heels of their highly successful CD Strong Tower, the band continues to spread the message of Christ with their newest worship album, It Is Well. The band shares in their own words the experience of preparing for this latest release.

We began this worship project, It Is Well, by asking one question, "Can we do something unique?" There are many worship records; however, we were driven by the challenge to do something different, something Kutless. Although we've done a worship-oriented album (Strong Tower), we are in a different place right now and wanted this project to reflect our hearts. read more

'The Screwtape Letters' Audio Production

Andy Serkis, who played Gollum in the Lord of the Rings movies, leads a star cast in the Focus on the Family Radio Theatre (Tyndale House Publishers) audio book adaptation of C.S. Lewis' 1942 classic The Screwtape Letters. Lewis' stepson, Douglas Gresham, hosts the production, which was recorded in London with a world-class cast and original music.

We talked with the award-winning adapter/director Paul McCusker (right) about the new project, a four-CD set with a bonus, behind-the-scenes DVD.

Why do The Screwtape Letters remain so popular today?

Paul McCusker: I think because they're timeless. The "advice" from one demon to the other gets to the heart of our humanity, our rationalizations, our fallen-ness and the spiritual warfare going on around us. No matter what period of history we're in, the essence of what Lewis has written remains true. read more
