It’s not unpopular to talk about story, regardless of your background or industry. But what does it mean to tell a story in a cultural context—and specifically, how do Christians tell a better one than the world around us? Trevin Wax and I discuss this and more on today’s episode of Reading Writers.
Also in this episode, we discuss:
- Trevin’s man-crush on G.K. Chesterton;
- Another debate about Narnia; and
- Why the translation of a book written in a foreign language really does matter.
Be sure to check out Trevin’s new book, This is Our Time (reviewed here), as well as Word Matters, his podcast co-hosted by Brandon Smith, this terrific book by Chesterton, and the Julie Rose translation of Les Misérables as Trevin suggested.
