Recovering the Lost Art of Discernment with Hannah Anderson


What does the world need now? Discernment! It is far more than just gaining wisdom and doing the right thing. It is the key to living the abundant life Christ promises in a world that buries us each day in disparaging headlines and worrisome news. It is understandable many feel they should just bury their head in the sand, hiding hoping it will all just go away. But what we and the next generation in your home or classroom need now is the courage to move boldly and wisely into the world, offering lasting hope and restoration. Discernment is key to discovering all that is GOOD!


Hannah Anderson, winner of the 2018 Gospel Coalition Book Award for Christian Living, is the author of several books including Humble Roots: How Humility Grounds and Nourishes Your Soul and All That’s Good: Recovering the Lost Art of Discernment. She lives with her family in the haunting Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, where she spends her days working beside her husband in rural ministry, caring for their three children, and scratching out odd moments to write. You can find more of her writing at, hear her on the weekly podcast Persuasion, or follow her on Twitter. It is our privilege to have her joining us virtually at our upcoming Arete Retreat, Oct. 20-23 in Fort Worth, TX.
