Stasi invites her son, author, and teacher, Blaine Eldredge, onto today’s podcast to talk about his new book The Paradise King. Blaine first shares a few stories of how he became a committed, passionate and “in process” follower of Jesus, and how his life’s journey led him to write this book. The Paradise King is a product of Blaine’s curiosity and quest to recover the story of God in the Bible, as well as his longing to share it with others in a relatable and historical narrative. Blaine reads an excerpt from his book, which transports us into a beautiful experience of the heart of Jesus.
Psalm 46:5-7 (NIV) — God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
