Excellent - if maybe a bit too academic
I'm still giving it 5 stars because the content is so so good. As someone who has gone through a deconstruction journey, this podcast is already speaking very clearly to my experience.
That being said, it runs into the same problem that every podcast runs into when talking about this - it gets murky and dense in its language. Maybe this is needed. The hosts do an incredible job at giving the context and meaning for their jargon, but I wonder if it would be more helpful sometimes to use less "precise" words, and hone their precision with context, than to use obfuscating language.🤔
Personally, I don't mind, but I want to share this with some friends who are going through these journeys and have experienced rejection of aspects of their faith - but just are maybe not approaching it from such an academic standpoint.
Lastly, one of their core values is "serious theology" - and I get what they mean, but I think this program could run the risk of being too serious, when any good theology should also be filled with joy. (In my experience.) This is good work, but I hope they don't take themselves so seriously about the serious work of serious theology that they don't take time to also explore the more positive parts of the joyful experiences to be had. Seriousness is not a fruit of the Spirit. 😬
That being said, I have to reiterate - this is truly fantastic. Well done fellas.
kindly thoughtful and considerate of the many different ways one can have Christian faith. in particular, i enjoy how Dan and John don't themselves always agree -- refreshingly unique approach!
What we've all been waiting for
This is beyond a doubt *the* podcast for those exploring pressing questions related to the Christian faith.
