weekend reading

Jul 1, 2017

At a time when other writers suggest a Christian retreat to build small, faithful and closed communities as a defence against the world, Julian reminds us that if we are with Christ we have no need for fear as we live in the complex, contemporary and secular circumstances that surround us.

Several interviews with Julian Carron have been released this week:
