Episode 57 - Modest is Hottest

Episode 57 - Modest is Hottest

July 27, 2021

**JOIN OUR BOOK LAUNCH TEAM**

The topic of dressing modesty is an evergreen issue in Evangelicalism. But with the release of a particularly bad music video on the topic, it's in the headlines once more.

This week on the podcast, we dive into the idea of modesty culture, how it has shaped our view of women within the Church, the significance of a song like "Modest is Hottest" debuting at a meeting where sexual abuse allegations were one of the main points of conversation, and what biblical modesty might look like in a 21st century world.

Episode 56 - Reexamining Parenting Paradigms

Episode 56 - Reexamining Parenting Paradigms

July 20, 2021

Parenting his hard. Understanding the "biblical view" on parenting can be even harder.

In this episode, we discuss how some common parenting values of suburban evangelicalism came into vogue with the rise of books and related media like Focus on the Family and Growing Kids God's Way.

As we discuss, we reassess the parts of our upbringing that were cultural trends rather than a theological absolute. We wrestle with what might need to be amended in our modern age, especially as we look to our own two sons. 

Regardless of whether you are a parent or just grew up in a conservative evangelical home, we hope you'll commiserate with us about the complexities of training children up in the way they should go.

Episode 55 - Woke Preachers and the Goodness of Humanity

Episode 55 - Woke Preachers and the Goodness of Humanity

July 13, 2021

The term "woke" has been thrown about with such frequency (and often with such disdain) that the term has almost seemed to have lost its meaning. For many conservatives, "wokeness" has become more of a buzzword for anything liberal––and often radically so. 

In this episode, we discuss one instance where a "woke preacher" contemplates how we might tell the gospel story differently. Rather than starting with Genesis 3 ("You're a sinner"), might it be more effective to start with Genesis 1 ("You are created in the image of God")?

In our discussion, we wrestle with whether repackaging important biblical themes to fit our cultural context is a concession to a sinful world or a legitimate recontextualization of timeless truths.

We also look to some older sources of theological wisdom from the patristic era to see how the reformation has informed our understanding of what it means to be human (for good or for ill).

Episode 54 - All About Preaching

July 6, 2021

Preaching is a central part of the protestant and evangelical traditions. This week on the podcast, we talk about what makes for a good sermon, whether preachers should borrow content, whether it's more biblical to do verse-by-verse or topical messages, and what to do when you're sitting through a sermon that's boring and irrelevant.
