Episode Description:

Many Christians must deal with some sort of mental or emotional suffering. While life is a good creation from a loving God, in a fallen and broken world, normal human life can be really difficult.

While we have made tremendous advancements in therapy and psychiatry, the burden of living still comes down to the mundane choices that we each must make each moment, starting with the daily choice to get out of bed.

Our guest on this episode is Dr. O. Alan Noble, the author of On Getting Out of Bed: The Burden and Gift of Living (InterVarsity Press, 2023). This is a book in which Alan sits with us and puts words to our experiences of mental or emotional suffering.

Alan is Associate Professor of English at Oklahoma Baptist University.

We are thrilled to welcome Alan Noble back to the podcast. You might want to check out the episode from February 2022, in which Alan discussed his excellent book, You Are Not Your Own: Belonging to God in an Inhuman World.
