The Afterword: A Conversation on Books, Reading, and the Church

The Afterword: A Conversation on Books, Reading, and the Church

In this series from the Westminster Bookstore our good friend, the author, parent, theologian, and Westminster Professor Jonathan Gibson, will be talking with some of the Bookstore's favorite authors. We hope you'll join us in learning more about why books are so important to the life and health of the church. We also hope to learn more about the lives of those authors we admire - what inspires them, what books on their shelves are worn from many years of reading, and what they do when writer's block hits.
