Informed Radio's Interview with author Stasi Eldredge about her latest book "Defiant Joy"
Wonderful interview with Stasi Eldredge about her latest book, "Defiant Joy"
“The newsfeed on any given day is heartbreaking,” says Eldredge. “People are not only losing hope, they are losing heart. And we need our hearts back. We need true hope. It is possible in the middle of the sorrows of life to experience a life changing, reality based joy that is tethered to the hope we have in Christ!”
Written in one of the toughest years of her life, Eldredge explores how to embrace the mystery that suffering and joy can coexist. From the loss of loved ones and physical pain, to depression and struggles with food, Eldredge provides a blueprint to choose love over fear and fully understand that, because of God, we can know a joy that is defiant in the face of this broken world.
“Defiant Joy is a clarion call to press into the heart of God in new and life-giving ways,” continues Eldredge. “In the age we are living in, possessing joy can feel almost impossible. Yet, we are called to have joy, and if we are called to it, then it is possible. This book is an invitation to know a joy – a joy fully grounded in hope – that strengthens us and sustains us in the middle of our everyday lives and in the middle of the extremely painful seasons as well.”
