Nathan Foster talks with Winn Collier about the penetrating and practical spiritual wisdom of 17th-century archbishop and writer François Fénelon.

Show Notes

    [3:42] Could you share a little about Fénelon?

    [10:35] There’s almost a level of pain that one needs to feel in order to find the comfort… I wonder if it’s a season of life, if you’re in a space where you’re really needing a kind of brokenness.

    [11:57] I would go beyond identifying [pain]… It’s giving a map.

    [13:26] Do you know his influences, what shaped him in his life?

    [15:18] What were you hoping to do with the book?

    [16:45] What did you learn from the project?

    [19:56] Do you get any indication that he was a person of joy?

    [21:28] You can dip in anywhere in his letters … I will usually read one at a time and just sit with it, reading it multiple times before moving to another one. Am I doing it right?

    [23:07] Thoughtful, honest pastor — this reminds me of another friend of ours beyond the grave. How would you connect him with Eugene Peterson? Would you?

    [24:17] How are things with the Eugene Peterson Center?
