Our Favorite Lib.
Tony Campolo joins us regularly on Steve Brown Etc. Tony is professor emeritus at Eastern University and the founder of the Evangelical Association for the Promotion of Education, an organization that develops schools and social programs in various third world countries and in cities across North America.
