Host Jen Pollock Michel is joined by two first-time guests, Jamin Goggin and Kyle Strobel, to discuss the new re-release of their 2017 book The Way of the Dragon or The Way of the Lamb, while also touching on the more general concept of healthy or toxic uses of power in the church in our culture today.

He holds two Masters degrees and a PhD in systematic theology. He lives in Southern California with his wife, Kristin, and their four children.
