Rachel Held Evans was on the For the Love podcast with Jen Hatmaker, talking about her new book Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again.
Rachel shows how the Bible can hold up to our fiercest questions, our strongest doubts and the most significant of disagreements. She encourages us that “God is not a God of self-improvement plans and 10 steps. Ours is a God of death and resurrection—and that God can take anything and bring it to life.”
The newest episode (#193) of the Seminary Dropout Podcast is a conversation with Austin Channing Brown about her newly-released book, I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness. In a time when nearly all institutions (schools, churches, universities, businesses) claim to value “diversity” in their mission statements, I’m Still Here is a powerful account of how and why our actions so often fall short of our words.
Priya Parker was on the Design Matters podcast, talking about her excellent new book The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters Debbie Millman talks to Priya about meetings and gatherings and why so many of them don’t work. “In so many group contexts we tend to follow scripts, whether or not we want to.”
On the Theology on Mission podcast, David Fitch and Geoff Holsclaw talk about whether Pentecost obliterates differences in the People of God? They talk about Galatians 3:28, “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” They ask if there is a better way of understanding this text in light of Babel and Pentecost.
And finally, on the On Being podcast, Krista Tippett talks with Derek Black and Matthew Stevenson talk about how Derek, a former white nationalist was transformed by Shabbat dinner conversations hosted by Stevenson. After Black’s ideology was outed at college, one of the only orthodox Jews on campus invited Derek to Shabbat dinner. What happened over the next two years is like a roadmap for transforming some of the hardest territory of our time.
