I’ve Fallen and I Can Get Up

 

One of the oddest things to me is when people are shocked when someone who professes to be Christian or otherwise religious does something wrong.

Here’s my Q&A with him if you’re interested. It’s the type of book that can be a great little help. It joins a bookshelf of recent books by men on faith (thinking Metaxas  and Fr. Barron and Lieberman and Simon and Novak and Swaim and Bennett — all very different — and so many more).
