This week we discuss the status of the evolution controversy in the Evangelical community and the best approaches to broaching the topic among the resistant with a returning guest, Naval Commander Mike Beidler. Mike occasionally blogs at http://rethinkingao.com.
This week we chat with Joel Watts, author of the popular biblioblog Unsettled Christianity, about his faith background and theological development. We discuss the difficulties and perks of looking deeper into the things we are taught to believe and we point out things that have helped us stay sane during our various transitions.
We’re back–for real this time, or Matthew will eat Travis’s dirty socks!
Those of you still subscribed (thanks!) will be glad to know that the [ad hoc] gang is rebooting the show in the form of a video podcast recorded via Hangouts On Air. We’ll record it and broadcast our discussions – replete with frequent participation from guests – live on YouTube and Google+.
Don’t worry: you’ll be able to remain subscribed to an mp3 version through this site’s old RSS feed…if you want to be all early-2000’s about it. We’re not currently planning on publishing the videos from this site, but you can subscribe to our YouTube channel to get all the new stuff.
We’re excited about our new format and can’t wait to get into some great discussions, bridging the familiar and the fringe of our faith.
Here’s our first episode in the new format. We discuss the new format, what’s been going on with us in the time since our last show, and some of our plans for the future.
We’re back…again! Well, Travis and Steve, anyway. Steve discusses the effect of the show’s summer hiatus on his theological interests (or lack thereof). We also discuss the cardinal virtue that is the true opposite of fundamentalism.
Today’s very special guest is the Paragon of Biblioblogging himself, Clarence L. Goodwin Chair of New Testament Language and Literature at Butler University, and the answer to the question “Doctor Who?”…Dr. James McGrath!
James is the author of the important blog, Exploring Our Matrix. Join us for a fun conversation about various factors in his own theological revolution, the impact learning from other cultures has on our understanding of the Bible, and the value of the biblioblogosphere. We also talk with him about the book he recently edited called Religion and Science Fiction, and his always entertaining and enlightening toe-to-toes bouts with vociferous mythicists. It’s a great discussion we guarantee you’ll enjoy. Or your money back!
