Deepn Questions

Put your phone down and have a listen

This is an unusual show format, with popular productivity author Cal Newport and occasional guests answering questions from listeners and readers of his best-selling books (including Deep Work) and articles for magazines such as The New Yorker. The answers that the warm and conversational Newport provides can help us find our focus and “work deeply in an increasingly distracted world.” According to Newport, he often hears from overworked church leaders.

Mere Christians

How faith impacts our work and how we do it
