Is the gospel primarily preventative or redemptive? What did Jesus emphasize between the two?

In this episode, Steve is joined by his wife, the friendly neighborhood therapist Lisa, to consider these questions. They talk about faith gaps, how human development affects the ways we approach faith, and comparing ourselves to the pillars of the faith. They explore how our understanding of the gospel impacts everything—from prayer lives to parenting styles.

Cuss also reads from his upcoming book, The Expectation Gap, which releases on May 28. Listeners can preorder here. Get your preorder bonuses here!
