CrashTheChatterboxNew York Times best-selling author Steven Furtick is hosting a star-studded live radio event Tuesday, Feb. 11, to promote the release of his new book, Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God’s Voice Above All Others (Multnomah Books). The Crash the Chatterbox Live! event will feature a variety of special guests—including GRAMMY-winning recording artists Mandisa and Israel Houghton, Dove Award winner Kari Jobe, Passion movement leader Louie Giglio, Carolina Panthers Wide Receiver Steve Smith, mixed martial arts fighter Vitor Belfort, author Shaunti Feldhahn and Hillsong NYC pastor Carl Lentz—appearing throughout the show, each for one hour.

Furtick, founder and lead pastor of Elevation Church—the largest church in North Carolina—and author of the New York Times-best-seller Greater (Multnomah Books), will tap into the theme of chatter by talking with special guests and callers about the lies that people tell themselves and how to overcome them.

The event will tackle core issues from Crash the Chatterbox, such as insecurity, fear, discouragement, condemnation and the truths in God’s Word that can short-circuit them. Sharing from personal experience, Furtick and his guests will touch on how these topics show up in day-to-day life in areas including parenting, marriage, leadership, work and church.

“I used to think that someone who struggled with the kinds of weaknesses I deal with daily was useless to God,” Furtick writes in Crash the Chatterbox. “I felt so often like I was drowning in internal dialogue I couldn’t control. It had been the soundtrack of my life for as long as I could remember. Yet everything changed when I began to realize God has given us the ability to choose the dialogue we believe and respond to.”

The Crash the Chatterbox Live! radio event will be hosted at starting 10 a.m. EST.
