Interview with Stan Grant


Dear friends,

I hope you’re having a refreshing summer.

Stop & Think has taken a pause as I’ve been on a wonderful 40-day journey throughout Europe. After a nasty bout of Covid and a breathtaking hike in the Alps, two joyous weddings, three book recording sessions, five countries, seven reunions, and countless conversations, I’m home. Thank you to so many dear friends for your generous hospitality.

This week I’m sharing my recent interview with Stan Grant on his Religion and Ethics Report for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Grant is one of Australia’s leading journalists and has interviewed many inspiring moral leaders and philosophers, including Nelson Mandela and Charles Taylor.

I was humbled that Grant asked to interview me about my article in Foreign Policy on Christian nationalism in Ethiopia. Our interview is titled “How Religion and Violence Are Shaping Ethiopia Today,” and you can listen to it here.

I hope this brief conversation enriches your awareness of what’s happening in Ethiopia and how we can practice the ethic of neighbor-love in this challenging time. Please join me in praying for peace, justice, and healing in Ethiopia.

Lastly, I’m delighted to share that I’ve just finished recording the audio version of my forthcoming book Flourishing on the Edge of Faith. We can’t wait to share this book with you in October! To get updates on its release, kindly signup here.

Yours with gratitude,
