A New Release from The Gospel Coalition

jenmichel@me.com

Do you remember me telling you about my hard thing for this past year? If you don't, you can catch up here. Essentially, my husband, Ryan, read the book Grit and challenged everyone in our family to choose to do a hard thing "with passion and perseverance." The kids have, to varying degrees of success, met their goals. Ryan has, as he determined, improved his French dramatically. And I succeeded in reading the 800+ pages of Charles Taylor's A Secular Age.

Taylor's work has been showing up in my writing for the last many months, attesting to how important and relevant I've personally found his thought to be. And I'm happy to say that I have a chapter in an exciting new collection of essays published by The Gospel Coalition: Our Secular Age, edited by Collin Hansen. Our Secular Age releases today, and you can purchase your copy here.

If you find yourself daunted by 800+ pages, this essay collection is a perfect way to familiarize yourself with Taylor's thought, all the while seeing how it might immediately be applied to church life, cultural engagement, and personal discipleship.
