Hope for Death and Dying, with John & Donna Avant and Steve Teng

What do you believe about death? If you’re fearful, anxious, or overwhelmed by the reality of death, a change in perspective can bring you hope. John and Donna Avant explain how we can move to a godly, righteous theology of death. In this difficult, yet important, conversation, we’ll see what the Bible says about hope-filled grief. Steve Teng also joins our hosts to share how God is bringing hope and perspective to a crisis situation.
