Limbaugh father and daughter book aims to ‘bring a lot of people closer to God’

Ahead of the release of his fifth and final book in his “Jesus” series, lawyer and bestselling author David Limbaugh sat down to discuss his latest work, the Bible and his experience alongside his co-author, daughter Christen Limbaugh Bloom.

The pair joined Fox News Digital ahead of the Sept. 6 release of “The Resurrected Jesus: The Church in the New Testament,” to discuss their unique work, their faith, and the perspective they hope the book will provide to those who read it. Having already chronicled his own spiritual journey through his previous books in the series and the relevant sections of the Bible, the last installment covers the final seven epistles of Paul, known as the prison epistles and the pastoral epistles offering interactive prayers along the way.

Limbaugh, brother to the late great radio host Rush Limbaugh, told Fox News Digital, “One of the reasons I decided to start writing Christian books is because I know what it’s like to be a skeptic. I know what it’s like to be intimidated by the Bible–and I also know what it’s like to overcome that skepticism and intimidation.”

“And I learned through teaching Sunday school, once I became enthusiastic about scripture, that you can really relate it to people on a lay level and ignite passion in them by trying to explain a little about what the Bible is all about,” he explained. “That is really one of our main goals of the book: to encourage people and inspire people to read scripture itself.”

Bloom expressed how her experience reading the Bible had been a great opportunity even for someone “raised in a Christian home.”

“It wasn’t until college, really,” she detailed, “that I learned for myself that there is an opportunity in reading the Bible to really hear from God personally.”

As the creator of Haplous, a blog and Biblical study community, Bloom has worked at addressing the small steps that people can take to develop their relationship with God.

“I think if people approach the Bible with the understanding that it’s the word of God for them–that it’s God speaking into their lives–then it’s an invitation for them to have a conversation with God by reading his word,” she suggested.

Her father picked up on that notion as he told the outlet, “By impressing upon readers that it truly is the word of God–that we take scripture, truly, as the word of God–then others might say for the first time in their lives, ‘Wow, it really could be.’ There’s all the more incentive for them to read the Bible.”

As he put it, the Bible “was written by 40 authors over 1,500 years. And yet, it is all thematically tied together. There is a purpose, from beginning to end. And it’s the story of God’s plan of redemption for all mankind…revealed through the stories of real human beings…[people] God created and who fell–and people that he sent his son to die for, so that he could redeem them and they could live with him in all eternity.”

In their conversation with Fox News, Bloom also divulged the encouragement that her father had given her when she was around six years old to write down the stories that she regularly told by gifting her a notebook. “He said his own dad had done the same thing for him when he was a little boy. I remember being so encouraged by that. I myself probably wouldn’t have thought to try writing if he hadn’t encouraged me.”

This, she went on, was another way her dad “has really led…by his actions.”

“We’ve always been very close my whole life, but this has just enhanced our relationship and made it that much more fun because we’ve been working toward a common goal together,” Bloom went on.

Of that goal, she expressed, “We pray that our book will bring a lot of people closer to God.”

“She’s so much more advanced theologically and in the Bible than I was at her age–that came later for me…She took to her faith,” the proud father lauded. “She’s naturally spirit-filled and a prayer warrior. And she’s so articulate, naturally, when she talks to God.”

“She’s been an inspiration to me and drawn me closer to God as I watched her grow in that way,” he added as the two hope to see the same for others who read their book.
