This week, Scott and Jon talk with Peter Rollins. Peter is a writer, philosopher, storyteller and public speaker who has gained an international reputation for overturning traditional notions of religion and forming “churches” that preach the Good News that we can’t be satisfied, that life is difficult, and that we don’t know the secret. Scott, Jon, and Peter dive right into these ideas in this episode as they discuss how Christianity is actually absurd (which is good news!) and how Christianity is similar to punk rock. They also discuss other various topics like: doubt, certainty, uncertainty, the end of meaning, and how all of it is really good news! Seriously, it is really good news. Enjoy!

A noted and acclaimed author, AJ has also been featured on various media outlets (including CNN) where she lends her expertise to biblical topics.

Rob Bell visits the show to talk about his new book "What Is The Bible?" And by the way, this book has the most epic subtitle ever: "How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything." That is quite a claim and Rob is here to chat about the truth of that statement with Scott and Jon. In this episode, Rob, Scott and Jon discuss questions like...

- How do Americans misread the Bible?

- Why do we need to begin with the human factor when reading the Bible?

- Are doctrines like inerrancy and infallibility valid?

Scott, Jon, and Rob discuss all of this and so much more! If you enjoy this interview, please be sure to rate, review and subscribe to this podcast in iTunes.

May 2, 2017

Mike Morrell, co-author of "The Divine Dance" with Richard Rohr, chats with Scott and Jon this week to discuss his book and an often misunderstood idea: God as Trinity. Mike shares a bit of his diverse church background and how it all led him to the search for something more and ultimately writing this book with Richard Rohr. In part one, Mike discusses how the evangelical view of God is still largely pagan and the real-life implications for having such a view of God that's single instead of Trinity.
