A conversation with author Johnnie Moore
Earlier in the year, Warren Smith spoke with Johnnie Moore about his book What Am I Supposed To Do With My Life? That book came out of his experiences as the Vice President for nearly a decade at Liberty University. The book is about how to know what God is calling you to in life.
Little did Moore know, as he was writing this book, that God was calling him to a new season in life. The successful television producer Mark Burnett had been working with Liberty University on various projects, which resulted in a friendship between Moore and Burnett. That relationship ultimately led Burnett to ask Johnnie Moore to be his chief of staff. After 13 years at Liberty University in Virginia, Moore last year packed up his family and moved to California.
But Moore was also experiencing another tug on his life, and that was a growing concern for Christians in the Middle East. From his positions first at Liberty University, and then with Mark Burnett, he had been given a unique opportunity to travel the world, and a growing media platform himself. He also knew that to whom much was given, much was expected. Moore began documenting stories he was hearing about courageous Christians being persecuted by ISIS in the Middle East. The result of that work is the book Defying ISIS.
