Episode 1: Historian Diana Butler Bass, author of Freeing Jesus
Welcome to Madang.
Madang is the outdoor living room of the world. Here, we invite you to sit and tune into unreserved, remarkable conversations with renowned authors, leaders, public figures, and scholars on religion, culture, and everything in between.
Here in the first episode of Madang, I converse with historian and popular author Diana Butler Bass about her new book, Freeing Jesus.
We discuss how she came to write the book, her upbringing, Quakerism, Jesus as presence, and memoir theology. It is a great discussion on who Jesus is. This is a wonderful book which will not only challenge readers but will transform them.
