Good Story Special: Thus Sayeth the Lord by Julie Davis

Here's a special episode, because Julie wrote another book! Scott interviews Julie about "Thus Sayeth the Lord", a book she wrote about the biblical prophets. Most of the prophets in the Bible didn't want the job. Why? Because it usually involved telling a bunch of people that they were doing it wrong (which always goes over well). But when they did what God asked them to do … wow.
