On living little in an online world with Samuel D. James.

Ministry Minded, Episode 56.

In this edition of the Ministry Minded podcast, I get the privilege to talk to Samuel D. James about the world of Christian publishing and the fundamental ironies of “living little” in an online world.

Samuel James hails from Wheaton, Illinois where he lives with his wife Emily and son Charlie. There he serves as an acquisitions editor for Crossway. Sam’s writing has been featured in First Things, The Gospel Coalition, National Review, Mere Orthodoxy, and Desiring God. You can connect with him on Twitter, @samueld_james.
