NYT Bestseller https://untamedbook.com/ (Untamed) restyles the philosophy of an old, dead white dead in the chic new fashions of social justice and feminism. Like Jean Jaques Rousseau, Glennon Doyle preaches and lives out the gospel of self-expression as the way to happiness. She teaches her readers how to be Cheetahs: wild and set free from the cages of society.
But does her advice lead to a life well lived? Did this life philosophy work out for Rousseau? Does it align with Jesus' path to the good life?
Listen to https://www.thecrossingchurch.com/staff/keith-simon/ (Pastors Keith Simon) and https://www.thecrossingchurch.com/staff/patrick-miller/ (Patrick Miller) as they assess Doyle's advice and give their own.
