Russell Moore’s new book “The Storm-Tossed Family” gains top-level media attention

Andy Whisenant | Dec 4th

Since the release of his latest book, The Storm-Tossed Family: How the Cross Reshapes the Home (September 2018, B&H Books), bestselling author Dr. Russell Moore has appeared on top national media outlets to discuss his latest book, current events and how the gospel shapes a Christian’s understanding of the family.

Most notably, Moore has been featured on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront,” “The 700 Club,” National Review, Christianity Today, RELEVANT Magazine, The Gospel Coalition and many other radio, television, online, print and podcast outlets.

A longtime pastor, a former professor and provost of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and current president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Moore brings theological insight and pastoral approach to this most sensitive of topics. The topics addressed in the book, including marriage, sexuality and fidelity; divorce, abuse and broken relationships; parenting, discipline and bonding; trauma, generational sin and healing, have resonated with both secular and Christian media, and in his interviews Moore has skillfully connected these biblical principles to current events and culture.

“Understanding the family starts first not at the dinner table or in a honeymoon suite, but at the cross,” said Moore. “We can be free to be family when we see how God designed families but also how these families point beyond our individual stories to the ultimate story of our lives—the gospel.”

Moore has also written several op-eds about the book, including several still in the works that will be published in the next few months. National Review recently published “What’s the Real Issue behind the Abortion Debate?” while Baptist Press, RELEVANT Magazine, The Gospel Coalition, Christian Broadcast Network and The Christian Post have written on the book or featured an excerpt.

His radio and podcast interviews include “BreakPoint Podcast” with Warren Smith, “Equipped with Chris Brooks,” “Lighthouse Faith with Lauren Green” (FOX Radio), “The Gospel Coalition” Podcast, “The RELEVANT Podcast” and WORLD Magazine’s “Listening In” Podcast.
