Listen Again: Beth Moore

Everything Happens with Kate Bowler

Dec 26 2023 • 51 mins

Today, we are re-airing one of our favorite episodes.

Beth Moore has been in the limelight for almost thirty years, but during that time, she revealed very little about her formative family history. Now, this world-famous Bible teacher is ready to tell her story for the first time.

In this episode, Kate and Beth discuss:

  • How Beth’s faith offered stability during a very unpredictable and unstable childhood
  • The complicated grief that occurs when family members cause deep, unforgivable harm
  • What it means to be fully known (and why that feels better than anything else)
  • Beth’s long-faithfulness despite experiencing rejection, pain, and hurt from her faith community

This was Beth’s first interview about her new memoir, and Kate felt so honored to get to ask this wise soul about the role of faith in lives that haven’t worked out like we thought they should.

CW: sexual abuse, mental illness.
