Thanks to Ben for sharing his journey of faith thus far. He has a keen ability to be able to identify and explain religious terms and practices looking past the superficiality of the words and suss out what is actually being conveyed.

Had a great conversation with Nate Allen about his new project  Good Saint Nathanael. You can find our more about his new project @ http://hidenotruth.com/.

With his new project Good Saint Nathanael, Nate Allen is turning to face his demons leading with a rare, disarming vulnerability. On Hide No Truth (available on Feb. 1st), the harder Nate looks at himself in the mirror, the more humanity reveals its bitter, beautiful complexity.

The nine songs on Hide No Truth find Nate stripping back his sonic palette to reveal stark, memorable, acoustic songs full of detail and intention.

In what is a cathartic move towards self-choice, honest art and emotional health, Nate uses religious language to explore human vulnerability and his own broken Christian religious experience.

Faced with a choice between ignoring his past or leaving his faith and community, Good Saint Nathanael is a project seeking a 3rd path, one that lances the wounds, protests somberly, and grieves deeply while still refusing to give up.

Another fascinating conversation with Brian Godawa. This time about  his latest book Resistance, book 3 in his Chronicles of the Apocalypse series.

Brian defends his idea that a great deal of the judgments Jesus talked about are not still in our future but were fulfilled in the destruction of the temple in A.D. 70.

You can find our more and buy the book here –
