Episode 25 – Talking w/ Brandon Elrod @brandonelrod About Sho Baraka, Lifeway, and #Christian Thought

Next on Thinking It Through:  Brandon Elrod joins me again to discuss the issue surrounding Lifeway, a Christian bookstore chain, taking Sho Baraka’s (a Christian Hip Hop artist) album, The Narrative, off of its shelves.  Then, we dive into the importance of Christian thought from the past and present and hope for its future and why many decided to ruminate on faith.  Many of the great Christian thinkers (philosophers, theologians, writers, etc.) dealt with heavy topics including the existence of God and other Christian doctrinal beliefs, which may help with doubt.  (Please forgive me if the dialogue seems a little weird because of the recording being messed up I had to do quite a bit of editing.  Hopefully, you still will enjoy and get something from our dialogue.)
