Episode 15 – Frank Schaeffer “Crazy for God”

Frank Schaeffer.jpgThis week Frank Schaeffer will join Bruce and Carol to talk about his book “Crazy for
God: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious
Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back”
. Hearing the story of the man who linked evangelicalism to the GOP should be fascinating.

This week the music is from The Falling View.  OK, they’re white and one of them plays guitar, but they really aren’t quite the “white guy with a guitar” that we’ve had thus far.

Episode 14 – Phyllis Tickle and “The Great Emergence”

Phyliss Tickle.jpgEvery 500 years, the Christian faith goes through a major change and
has (according to Phyllis Tickle) a giant “rummage sale” of sorts, in which the
faithful discern what to leave behind and what to carry on.  We are
currently in the midst of one of these periods.  We will talk with Phyllis about the unique characteristics of this “Great Emergence” and
what it might mean for the Christian faith moving forward.

Our music will be provided by JAZ Rice.
