Hutchmoot Podcast & Video: Why We Need Fiction for Moral Formation


The Hutchmoot Podcast features some of our favorite sessions recorded at our annual conference which celebrates art, music, story, and faith in all their many intersections. Today, it is our pleasure to share Dr. Russell Moore’s session “Why We Need Fiction for Moral Formation” from 2020’s Hutchmoot: Homebound, in both video and audio form.

You can watch Dr. Moore’s session below, in which he explores the ways that fiction and story are fundamental and indispensable building blocks in our our understanding of the world, ourselves, and God.

In addition to Dr. Moore’s session, today’s podcast episode features Andrew Peterson’s welcoming address as well as his performance of “Many Roads” (complete with a pandemic-themed bridge).
