Philip Yancey Survived the Bible Belt

Russell Moore is joined by Philip Yancey, author and former journalist, to discuss his new memoir, Where the Light Fell. Yancey and Moore have a lot in common, including their Bible Belt upbringings and even a shared distant ancestor.

In this episode, Yancey speaks of his childhood faith and the fear that shook it, which eventually led him to discover the Jesus he never knew. He and Moore talk about the toxic ideas that arise when churches paint a false picture of who God is. Finally, they discuss the eye-opening, true nature of God and how, ultimately, his love should cast out fear.
