From the Front Porch

Since talking about censorship wasn't hard enough, we've taken it upon ourselves--at listener behest--to talk about one of the hardest, most personal things there is: faith. These are some of the books that got us thinking and growing and changing, and we hope, at the very least, that they are useful to your journey.

You can read Amelia Thomson-DeVeaux and Daniel Cox's piece on 538.

You can listen to the "Apocalypse Now" episode of NPR's Throughline podcast here.

You can listen to our old, old episode on "grief literature" here.
