On the latest episode of Faith Angle, we're joined by New York Times op-ed columnist David Brooks and Comment Magazine editor-in-chief Anne Snyder to discuss the new books they've each published, their respective approaches to writing, their own marriage and faith journey, and how to cultivate communities rooted in trust that lead to individual and social transformation.

Anne’s email to David, p. 239 of The Second Mountain: "I want to reiterate that yes, grace is the central thing Christ offers, but that is the doorway. And it is to know him.

But the foundational fact is you cannot earn your way into a state of grace - this denies grace's power, and subverts its very definition. Grace must reach out to the broken and the undeserving. It must reach out to those recognizing plainly, vulnerably, their own need and emptiness. It can only find welcome in those sitting still.
