The Way Home: Ben Mandrell on leading local churches and Easter

In this episode of the special Easter series in conjunction with my book “The Characters of Easter,” I am joined by my friend Ben Mandrell, President and CEO of Lifeway Christian Resources. On this episode, Ben talks about the challenges and opportunities with Christian publishing, his previous role as a pastor for many years, and what it’s like to preach on Easter. He also talks about how Lifeway has helped and resourced churches with digital products during the pandemic.
