Each Friday in February a new, first-of-its-kind segment on The Dr. Oz Show takes an intimate look at the intersection of faith and medicine. To explore body and soul, Dr. Oz is joined by author, speaker and preacher DeVon Franklin, whom Oprah Winfrey calls “a bonafide dynamo . . . a different kind of spiritual teacher for our times.”
Dr. Oz and DeVon Franklin will be joined by top faith leaders—Hispanic leader Samuel Rodriguez, New York Times best-selling author and star of War Room Priscilla Shirer, and Hillsong New York Pastor Carl Lentz—who add their voices to the natural link between spirituality and well-being.

In addition, my favorite Christian celebrity Sherri Shepherd is slated to appear and will share how she “has been coping with a serious health issue and the stress of headlines about her divorce. “
Also, DeVon Franklin and Priscilla Shirer’s father Dr. Tony Evans, pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, Texas, are two of a plethora of interesting speakers to be featured at the Proclaim 17, the NRB (National Religious Broadcasters) International Christian Media Convention to be held in Orlando, Florida Feb. 27-March 2.
Finally, DeVon Franklin recently received a book deal for his third book for “The Hollywood Commandments,” a spiritual guide for secular success which explores principles that will transform everything we think we know about God’s intention for our success by teaching us how to boldly live out the fullness of our calling in every area of our life: career, relationships and faith,” according to Publishers Marketplace.
