    Hi Mr. Steiner. I enjoy listening to your show as well as Mr. McCarthy’s show. I’m writing to comment about the author that was on the show today, Mr. Jerald Walker and his book, Street Shadows. I really enjoyed listening to Mr. Walker recite verses in his book as I was on my way home from work. As I listened to him, I would never have imagined that he was actually talking about his life experience. It really had me captivated and drew me into the book. Before I knew it, the volume was up and I found myself enveloped in the story. I would like to know if he has an audio version of the book because his ability to tell his story in his own prophetic manner was amazing. Thank you.

    Thanks for writing, glad you enjoyed the interview!  As far as I know, there is not yet an audio version of Street Shadows.  Hopefully, there will be at some point.
