Worth the listen! Thankful for voices like Jonathan’s
Jonathan Merritt occupies a helpful and unique space. Thoroughly Christian, he is not afraid to ask tough questions about deeply held faith traditions and yet also to celebrate the historical progress of the Church. I’m looking forward to hearing more episodes and I’m excited for his new book Learning to Speak God from Scratch. Give this podcast a try if you have time and interest!
Excellent interview w/ Andy Stanley
Loved hearing the discussion about old vs new covenant and the idea of following Jesus’ lead when it comes to Old Testament stories/events and their historical meaning.
If you are one of those people who have a strong faith but find it hard to fit so much of what you learned as a kid into “real life“ – you will find this absolutely gripping... if you are in the place in life where you want to hang onto your faith but find it harder and harder to do so in a world that has become so complicated and divided and you are not afraid to have an open mind about things you thought were true ...this is for you ...or if you are a seeker who is curious about this faith but are confused about things you hear and see from many who claim this faith in Christ or have doubts about the truth of this faith because parts of it are hard to understand and hard to believe then this is for you...if you are like me, you will find yourself saying “finally, someone is saying what I’ve been thinking for a long time but always kept to myself out of fear of being labeled”...do yourself a favor and listen!
