Kenda Creasy Dean on what it means to be almost Christian

I feel really lucky. Why? Because I co-host a podcast. That means when I read a great book, I have an excuse to call the author and ask her or him if we can chat about it. And you know what's even better? They say yes!

This week, Derrick Weston, my partner in this Internet radio endeavor, spoke to Kenda Creasy Dean about her book Almost Christian. Kenda is a Professor of Youth, Church and Culture at Princeton Seminary.

What are today’s youth are saying about their faith? How does what they
profess compare to our historic creeds? What are they telling us about the
beliefs of their parents and our church? Kenda
Creasy Dean helps us to
 learn how youth reflect the faith of our communities. Plus, you won’t want to miss the insightful thoughts of the Two Friars and a Fool (Aric Clark, Doug Hagler, and Nick Larson).
