“How did we lose goodness, kindness, and beauty? And more importantly, how do we get them back into our lives?”
These are questions Rich Villodas (Nyack ’03; ATS ’09) and lead pastor of New Life Fellowship Church in Queens, New York, explores in his new book Good and Beautiful and Kind: Becoming Whole in a Fractured World (WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group). This sophomore selection from the dynamic speaker and author will be released on Tuesday, July 12 by major retailers and can be pre-ordered now. Good and Beautiful and Kind, which includes a foreword by prolific Christian author Ann Voskamp, has been widely endorsed by other Christian leaders and authors.
The Deeply Formed Life, Rich’s first book, gained tremendous acclaim and earned him a 2021 Christianity Today Book Award. Christianity Today applauded it as one of the books “most likely to shape evangelical life, thought, and culture.” It is a timely exploration of spiritual formation and is described by one reviewer as a work written, “with the heart of a pastor, the mind of a scholar, and the voice of a friend … a book for our time.” Now you can listen to The Deeply Formed Life on Audible.
Congratulations to Pastor Rich Villodas!
