Welcome to a new quarterly feature of The Russell Moore Show: all about books! The enthusiastic listener response to the “Best of Books 2022” episode encouraged Russell and producer Ashley Hales to share their recent reads more often.
Tune in for a conversation that celebrates reading widely while also going deep into a few books, specifically Looking for the Hidden Folk by Nancy Marie Brown. This episode delves into the tendency to praise or criticize people based on their generation, the effect of social media and influencers, and genre-bending works by both Christian and secular authors.
Books discussed on this episode include:
- Looking for the Hidden Folk: How Iceland’s Elves Can Save The Earth by Nancy Marie Brown
- The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
- A Secular Age by Charles Taylor
- His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman
