Seeking Shalom with Steve Wiens

On this episode, Joy and Adam talked with Steve Wiens about his two books with Navpress, Beginnings and Whole. They also talked about how a Bible study with a Rabbi led to his book Beginnings, and how Whole sprang from a frightening experience with his toddler son. If you listen to the whole episode you’ll get the extra treat of hearing Steve pronounce many Hebrew words, and a brief conversation about Star Wars.

Whole by Steve Wiens

Look around, and you’ll notice: The world is covered with jagged edges. People and places are broken all around us.

We were made for better than this: We were made to be whole, and wholly human, to tend a world that is wholly humane. We were made in the image of God. This book is a quest to recover that image in ourselves and our neighbors, to help us all become human and humane again.

For Christians who lament the brokenness in themselves, their neighbors, and the world around them, Whole offers a rallying cry to pursue wholeness together.
