This week on The Bulletin, hosts Russell Moore and Nicole Martin are joined by New York Times columnist David French to talk about the growing crisis in Gaza and Russia’s recent reelection of Vladimir Putin. With so much suffering and conflict in the world, how do we determine who is truly responsible and how do we create a way forward? Theologian David Taylor stops by to talk about the book of Psalms in seasons of conflict, how lament offers us language for the suffering we see around us and how regular engagement with the Psalms can shape us into people who persevere with hope, regardless of what the headlines are.

Take our listener survey and let us know what you think of the show.
