Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds
I'm joined by one of my favorite Christian recording artists, Jon Guerra. His latest album "Keeper of Days" is phenomenal, and there is so much depth lurking just behind its carefully-constructed songs. Thankfully, a nice dose of that depth comes out in this fantastic conversation! We talk growing up the child of immigrants, Christian Nationalism, the Sermon on the Mount, the CCM machine, border politics, silence/prayer in the creative life, and more.

    Christian Heavy Music: Theology, Attachment, Power (#139)

    1:14:56

    Today I’m joined by Matt Carter and Krispin Mayfield to talk about the culture and psycology of Christian heavy music. Our conversation dissects the lyrics and theologies portrayed in an evangelical underground scene of the late 90s and 00s. We touch on topics of collective effervescence, attachment styles and lyrical themes motivated by purity culture.

    Reading Christian Fiction (#138)

    1:29:00

    This week I speak with Christianity Today's news editor Daniel Silliman about his new book “Reading Evangelicals”. This book deep dives into five top-selling evangelical novels. We had a fascinating conversation discussing the cultural influence of Christian Fiction and each of these books' implications in broader American culture. We also touch on things like parallel institutions, the Amish tourism industry and evangelical infrastructure & pop culture.

    Anger & Forgiveness (#137)

    1:37:26

    This week I speak with professor and research psychologist Dr. Lindsey Root Luna. Along with teaching at Hope College, she conducts her own research on anger and forgiveness. This is an interesting and fun conversation touching on neurotransmitters, the interaction of brain sections, white evangelicalism, and some of my spiritual abuse work. We also talk practically about anger through a therapeutic lens, processing pain, and some of anger's theological implications.

    What Can We Learn from Kierkegaard? (#136)

    1:46:41

    Today my guest J. Aaron Simmons joins me to discuss Danish philosopher and theologian, Soren Kierkegaard. Dr. Simmons is an author, Professor of Philosophy at Furman University, and the current president of the Soren Kierkegaard Society (USA). Aaron says “Faith is risk with a direction” and summarizes Kierkegaard with a current application: “You’re human, don’t forget that, and God sees that as a good thing”. As most listeners know, Kierkegaard has been a significant figure for me personally.

    What is Theopoetics? (#134)

    1:27:52

    This week, I spoke with author Callid Keefe-Perry on the concept of Theopoetics. Along with his book “Way to Water: A Theopoetics Primer”, we discuss the issue of justice, following Jesus and living out Keefe-Perry’s Quaker practice. Callid speaks about how being grounded in creativity is intrinsic to humanity—we are all “crafters” and “makers” of life. As he advocates for a less dogmatic approach, his Quaker tradition allows for a more artful expression of faith.

    Joshua Harris, Celebrity & "Gurus" (#133)

    1:25:41

    In our first installment of the “Healthy Egos” repeating segment (a knowing nod to the fact that both Tony Jones and I have at least a little narcissism running through us), Tony and I are joined by Sarah Lane Ritchie. We discuss the recent saga of Joshua Harris, newly deconverted author of “I Kissed Dating Goodbye.” His situation naturally brings to mind questions about celebrity, both within and without Christianity. And what is the difference between a “guru” and a humble leader?

    Integrating Theology & Psychology; Christian Existentialism (#132)

    1:36:47

    Dr. Brad Strawn (Fuller) joins me today for essentially a two-parter. First, we talk about the integration of psychology and theology broadly, including Brad’s own story of coming to that work in particular. After the break, we talk about how a Christian might also be an existentialist in some ways, a field of thought commonly associated with atheism or agnosticism. Finally, Sarey Concepcion, Communications Director for Blueprint 1543, joins me for a brief interview about some very high-quality free courses around psychology and theology that their organization is offering.

    How Free Is Our Will? (#131)

    1:13:42

    I'm joined by absolute neuroscience all-star William Newsome (Stanford, NIH BRAIN Project) to discuss the ways in which our will is both free and constrained. What counts as free will? Are the Sam Harris types right that we have no free will? (Nope.) How do "top-down" and "bottom-up" forces affect our will? When is it the "most free"?
