I don’t expect everyone to agree with my politics, but at the end of the day I do believe that as Christians the world should know what we are for and how we are going to change the world for the things that we care deeply about.
– Kathy Khang, Faithfully Podcast Books
Faithfully Podcast Books features host Nicola A. Menzie in conversation with authors about their works. We attempt to get beyond the pages of their books to gain insights and inspiration to help listeners better understand their faith, the world, and how to walk effectively in both.
In this episode, we speak with speaker, activist, and author Kathy Khang about themes she explores in her new book, Raise Your Voice: How to Speak Up and Why We Don’t.
