Episode 19: Public theologian Brian D. McLaren, author of Do I Stay Christian?
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 nineteenth episode of Madang, I converse with public theologian and popular author Brian D. McLaren about his new book, Do I Stay Christian?
We discuss White Christianity, parenting, heresy, Jesus as an oppressed brown Palestinian Jew, the Roman Empire, and the Doctrine of Discovery. It is an important book about challenges of being a Christian in the midst of difficult practices and Christian history. This is required reading for those who doubt and are disillusioned by the faith.
