Our very first interview is with my co-author, Shannon Popkin!

We’re kicking off this discussion with a conversation about the tension that so many of us feel as Christian writers, speakers, and influencers, when we discover that we’re supposed to build a platform.

Enjoy the video! (Click here if you don’t see the video appearing below.)

In this interview, Shannon addresses topics like:

  • The tension that many Christian writers feel when trying to build a platform
  • Passages from the Bible that can help Christians view platform building in a more God honoring way
  • Dangers to guard against as Christians seeking to use our gifts
  • The importance of depending on God in all that we do as Christian communicators
  • . . . and much more!
