EP. 291 | "All Things New" feat. John Eldredge


What an honor it was to interview this week’s Courage Cast guest, John Eldredge! John is the international best-selling author of Wild At Heart, a book that has personally impacted me in so many ways. His new book, “All Things New”, releases TODAY, and I’m so excited to speak with him about his writing process and what the book entails. 

On this episode, John and I dig into the topic of hope and eternal significance. “All Things New” was written to inspire the hope that no matter what we lose here on earth, there is a heavenly restoration coming. We are in what John calls “a hope crisis.” With suicide and depression rates at an all time high, it’s no wonder that God infused John with a desire to write on this subject. 

A few takeaways from this episode: 

  • Hope doesn’t just happen to you, you have to intentionally take hold of it.
  • One of the most stunning promises of Christianity is “nothing is not lost.” 
  • Life is a long series of letting go. 

It was really an eye-opening interview for me, and I was so thankful to sit under John’s wisdom for that bit of time. I know you will get so much out of this interview and John’s new book, “All Things New”, which I’ll link below to purchase! Thanks for listening, and enjoy this weeks discussion with John Eldredge!
