This week’s conversation is a BIT different as it is an ACTUAL conversation.
Our guest, Austin Gohn, generously suggested that we spend some time the similarities and intersections of two recent books. Austin’s recent book, A Restless Age: How Saint Augustine Helps You Make Sense of Your Twenties is closely aligned with your “esteemed” host’s, As I Recall: Discovering the Place of Memories In Our Spiritual Life.
In this conversation, we talk about St. Augustine and how the restlessness of young adults today mirrors the restlessness of Augustine himself. What might Augustine have to say to our restlessness these days?
We also tap into how memories and specifically the writing of a spiritual autobiography can be extremely helpful to our present and future spiritual growth.
Austin Gohn (M.Div., Trinity School for Ministry) is one of the pastors of Bellevue Christian Church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He has written for Fathom Mag, Gospel-Centered Discipleship, The Living Church (Covenant), and The Gospel Coalition. Find out more at www.austingohn.com.
One BRILLIANT book we also mention is The Seven Storey Mountain by Thomas Merton, an immediate must-add for your reading list.
