David Powlison is a biblical counselor, and he is also an avid reader of the 19th-century Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Those two facts are not disconnected, as we discovered in our recent trip to Philadelphia and CCEF. In this 5-minute video, Powlison tells us what he’s learned about sanctification and ministry from the writings of Dostoyevsky.
