There’s an unintentional thread that runs through this quarterly books episode: apocalyptic themes.

“That probably tells you what my headspace is right now,” says Moore. Later, he adds, “There is a reckoning in these books.”

On this episode of The Russell Moore Show, Moore and producer Ashley Hales talk about books, authors, and storytelling. They discuss what draws readers to fateful accounts and trace such tales from the Psalms up to new releases. Their reads span from poetry to prose and sermons to songs.

Tune in for an episode that is as honest about the darkness as it is certain of the light.
