On the resonance of seculosity with David Zahl.

Ministry Minded, Episode 47.

In this episode of the Ministry Minded Podcast, I was privileged to sit down with the author of ‘Seculosity’ and the director of Mockingbird himself, David Zahl. We discuss Dave’s book, ‘Seculosity’, and its resonant influence along with the impact the book tour has had on Dave personally.

David is a speaker, writer, and pastor in Charlottesville, Virginia, where he lives with his wife and three boys. He’s the founder, curator, and director of Mockingbird Ministries, a site devoted to connecting the Christian faith with the realities of everyday life in down-to-earth ways.
