‘Turning of Days,’ with Hannah Anderson

Hannah Anderson makes a triumphant return to Mere Fidelity to discuss her newest book, 'Turning of Days.'

Hannah Anderson is captivated by Genesis chapters 1 and 2. Her writing comes from that deep wonder at God’s creation, and she approaches practical-theological issues in a poetic-devotional mode. This is a delightful conversation with the entire Mere Fidelity team. They talk about being formed in the school of nature, why we have lost the ability to read natural revelation, and so much more.

The Book of the Month is Baptism: A Guide to Life from Death by Peter J. Leithart. It is part of the Christian Essentials Series. Leithart reunifies a church divided by baptism. He recovers the baptismal imagination of the Bible, explaining how baptism works according to Scripture. Then, in conversation with Christian tradition, he shows why baptism is something worth recovering and worth agreeing on.
