Special thanks to Brazos Press, sponsor of this episode, and publisher of the new book, On the Road with Saint Augustine by James K.A. Smith.

In On the Road with Saint Augustine, popular speaker and award-winning author James K. A. Smith invites us to take a journey with Augustine, who he calls ‘the patron saint of restless hearts.’

Following Smith’s successful You Are What You Love, this book shows how Augustine can be a pilgrim guide to a spirituality that meets the complicated world we live in. Augustine, says Smith, is a guide who has been there, asked our questions, and knows our frustrations and failed pursuits. Augustine spent a lifetime searching for his heart’s true home and he can help us find our way.
