Interview with Gloria Furman

Recently between sessions at the Gospel Coalition Women's Conference in Orlando I sat down to chat with DG blog contributor Gloria Furman. Gloria is from Texas but now lives in Dubai with her husband Dave and their three kids.

In the 14-minute interview I asked her about her testimony, her writing and reading habits, and what makes a Christian blog post spread online. We also talked about her forthcoming book with Crossway and her seminary experience. The interview drew to an appropriate close with Gloria sharing her appreciation for theologian Herman Bavinck.

To record the interview I used a handheld audio recorder, and while the recording levels are a little wacky (operator error), the audio is clear.
