Who counts as a Christian? What is the difference between Orthodoxy and heresy? Author Bonnie Kristian joins us to discuss how our faith can be more flexible. We do a deep dive into two issues: atonement and gender dynamics!
The US Prison System is one of the great, ignored injustices. Author, pastor and activist Dominique Gilliard joins us to explore God’s call to visit those in prison and what that means for Christians today.
