Gospelbound, with Sarah Zylstra


The only way we can move forward in the church is by going back to the Gospel. Journalism and education have become intrinsically destabilizing forces for Christianity, and anxiety is at an all-time high. Sarah Zylstra and Collin Hansen have written Gospelbound: Living with Resolute Hope in an Anxious Age to respond to this very problem. [Collin also hosts another podcast called Gospelbound). You will find encouragement and direction in this episode.  

Life and Books and Everything is sponsored by Crossway, publisher of Ten Words to Live By: Delighting in and Doing What God Commands by Jen Wilkin, the Best-Selling Author of Women of the Word. 

Ten Words to Live By teaches readers how the Ten Commandments come to
bear on their lives today, helping them to love God and others, to live in
joyful freedom, and to long for that future day when God will be rightly
worshiped for eternity. Ancient and timeless, these words cannot be overlooked.
They serve as the rightful delight and daily meditation of those who call on
the name of the Lord.
