In this session, Andrew Peterson will speak on his approach as a writer of fiction, and how his understanding of the Holy Spirit impacts that process. He will in turn speak to how he hopes readers, empowered by the Holy Spirit, interacts with what we read whenever we sit down with a good book. View Resource
