Can you share some advice on how to skim read books? How do you know in advance which sections of a book to read for the best insight? Do you need to make a best estimated guess and then accept that you might miss something really helpful?
Harriet Connor joins me today to discuss ways to produce a society more hospitable to motherhood. She recently wrote a piece on the subject for the Gospel Coalition Australia, called ‘Treasuring the Immeasurable Work of Mothers’ and is the author of the book Big Picture Parents.
Patrick Stefan joins me to discuss his new book, The Power of Resurrection, and the value of engaging with the work of Michel Foucault.
Steven Duby and Joseph Minich recently joined me to discuss The Lord Is One: Reclaiming Divine Simplicity, a book to which they both contribute essays, which has just been published by the Davenant Press. Steven Duby, associate professor of theology at Grand Canyon University, is also the author of Divine Simplicity: A Dogmatic Account and God in Himself: Scripture, Metaphysics, and the Task of Christian Theology, which was published last week.
A new thing that I am really excited about for 2020 is the Pilgrim Faith podcast. Hosted by Joseph Minich over on the Davenant Institute YouTube channel, it will be reflecting upon difficult questions for contemporary Christians, through in-depth conversations and explorations of a variety of issues.
Joseph Minich is a good friend of mine, a thinker I admire, and someone with a peculiar gift for addressing issues of doubt and theological struggle. I heartily commend his podcast and hope that you join me in following it.
Joseph invited me on the podcast to discuss issues of gender and God’s two books. Watch our conversation here!
