Dane Ortlund: The Heart of Christ

Show Notes

Dane Ortlund has written a great book, Gentle and Lowly, that helps us live in constant awareness of Christ’s affections and love for his people. It’s one thing to know what Christ accomplished on the cross. But do you know how he feels about you now? Dane and I explore this topic for our ongoing spiritual growth in this conversation.


Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers

By: Dane Ortlund


Christians know what Jesus Christ has done—but who is he? What is his deepest heart for his people, weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven? Jesus said he is “gentle and lowly in heart.” In Gentle and Lowly, Dane Ortlund reflects on these words, opening up a neglected yet central truth about who Jesus is for sinners and sufferers today.

Tim Thornborough: Good Books

Books have always played a strategic role in discipleship. God chose to reveal himself in a book, the Bible. And reading has a powerful effect on how we grow spiritually.

Joe Loconte: Lewis and Tolkien

Description - Historian Joe Loconte digs into the lives of C. S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, their friendship, and how their experiences in World War I shaped them for their entire lives. Joe’s book A Hobbit, A Wardrobe, and a Great War and his forthcoming documentary based on the book sparked our conversations on this episode of “Questions That Matter.”  Show Notes: A Hobbit, a Wardrobe, and a Great War By: Joseph Loconte https://www.christianbook.com/hobbit-a-wardrobe-and-great-war/joseph-loconte/9780718021771/pd/74043EB?event=ESRCG Had there been no Great War, there would have been no Hobbit, no Lord of the Rings, no Narnia, and perhaps no conversion to Christianity by C. S. Lewis. The First World War laid waste to a continent and brought about the end of innocence—and the end of faith. Unlike a generation of young writers who lost faith in the God of the Bible, however, J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis found that the Great War deepened their spiritual quest. Both men served as soldiers on the Western Front, survived the trenches, and used the experience of that conflict to ignite their Christian imagination. Tolkien and Lewis produced epic stories infused with the themes of guilt and grace, sorrow and consolation. Giving an unabashedly Christian vision of hope in a world tortured by doubt and disillusionment, the two writers created works that changed the course of literature and shaped the faith of millions. This is the first book to explore their work in light of the spiritual crisis sparked by the conflict. ...
