Episode 14 The Courage to Read: Scripture, Astonishment, and Transformation

In this week’s episode Dr Brian Russell talks about the profound role that Scripture has played in his life.

He offers suggestions to capturing a renewed vision of the power of Scripture for a deep dive spirituality. Will you embrace the courage to read?
