Brian Bantum on Redeeming Mulatto

bantum

Brian Bantum teaches theology at Seattle Pacific University out in the mighty Northwest.  This spring when he and Callid were both at the Christian Leadership Forum of  FTE they sat down to talk about Brian’s book Redeeming Mulatto: A Theology of Race and Christian Hybridity.

Because they are in a hotel lobby there a bit of background noise, but it is such a terrific interview that you’ll want to listen all the way through anyway 

If you want to followup on this conversation another great resource is this video of Brian giving a talk called “The Church Cannot be About Multiculturalism” at Quest Church‘s annual day conference on Faith & Race. Bantum is on twitter as well.

Special thanks to our sponsors at  Phillips Theological Seminary and Chalice Press: their sponsorship helps us keep getting these out to you for free.

Micky Getting Animated

Wild Goose 2014 was a seriously wet podcast. Despite the rain we had a blast thanks to Phillips Theological Seminary who sponsored the beer steins for brews & John Vest who smoked some yummy BBQ pork.  This is just a 55 minute sample of the 2 hours of excitement.

Tripp & Amy’s Hair Looks Rained on… but Christian’s

Tripp, Amy, Micky, & Christian spend some talking with Everyday Sunday’s Trey Pearson.  Last year at the Goose he not only visited the podcast but began his year long conversation with Tripp & Christian about progressive Christianity.  While he definitely resonates with a lot of it he has some lingering questions hours of podcast listening has not cleared up. So hear comes Amy and Micky to the rescue. Hopefully they will be able to lure Trey over to team awesome.  You shall see.

Greg & Tripp Chatting

Get ready for part 2 of ‘Ten Not-So-Shocking Things You Learn in Religion 101′.  The first half was pretty exciting and things don’t slow down here.

In this episode Tripp is  joined again by Greg Horton, ex-pastor and undergrad religion professor in Oklahoma to look of  a list of 10 Not-So-Shocking Things You Learn in Religion 101.

Greg Horton was one of the inspirations behind starting the podcast.  Tripp have stalked him online for a long time and then we got to have some fun in person on my visit to Oklahoma.  It was turned into this popular episode of the podcast.  Then he came back on the podcast to share 10 Dirty Secrets About Being a Minister.  Way back when he had a podcast called ‘the Parish’ on the wired parish podcast network. Back then he was an emergent Christian and has since left the building. Throughout his journey I have loved following his blog,hearing about his undergrad religion and ethics students, and thinking through some of the serious criticisms he has leveled against the church. Plus he also does some wine reviews.

If you live in LA come enjoy the podcast LIVE July 30 with Peter Rollins and Kester Brewin!

Greg & Tripp Chatting

CEM47354539_129436297782Tons of people that are ‘religious’  would be shocked if they just took a religion 101 class.  The divide between the academic study of religion is so huge that the experience of many students in their first religion class is disorientating.  I don’t think this is because religion professors hate religion and want to ruin people of faith’s confidence.  Largely it is evidence of just how poor our religious communities educate their members.  In this episode I am joined by Greg Horton, ex-pastor and undergrad religion professor in Oklahoma to look of  a list of 10 Not-So-Shocking Things You Learn in Religion 101.  Well we get through half of it in this episode.  Next week we will finish

Spirit and the Effects of Trauma: Shelly Rambo

BU PHOTO SERVICES     (KWZ)     9/23  RAMBO, SHELLY  STH PROF.    04-2526Callid had the opportunity to sit down and talk with constructive theologian Shelly Rambo. In their conversation they walked through some of the major points of her book Spirit and Trauma. In the course of the recording they talked about Derrida, the psychology of trauma, non-linear time, and zombies. Good stuff.

She makes clear that her work is not a self-help project, but a reconsideration of our insistence on the climax of Christian faith being the resurrection. She does not deny the resurrection at all, but she asks why we are so ready to skip over Holy Saturday and the time when Jesus was dead. This is a book not just for people who have been directly challenged by traumatic events, but for anyone who wants theology to more holistically address human experience.

When we do so we encounter a God of radical free grace, forgiveness and love and our lives are transformed by the Spirit of God sent to us through Jesus.”

At minute 46 he walks with Bo through Easter week and the Biblical account that brings the whole theory together.

Why Write a Liberal Theology? w/ Douglas Ottati

0ttati

Doug in action

bookWhy write a liberal theology?  That’s a good question & we got an interview size answer!  Buckle your theological safety belt because this episode is going to get seriously awesome.  If you remember Dr. Ottati’s last visit to the podcast then you are already excited!  Professor Ottati is the Craig Family Distinguished Professor in Reformed Theology and Justice Ministry at Davidson College in North Carolina.  He is one of the best communicators I know.  Not only is he a top-notch nerd but he has a strong love for the church and bringing theological goodness into local congregations.

PS. Ottati rocks the name game with a level of skill that rivals Jurgen Moltmann’s fun with Tony Jones and I.

On top of the most awesome first volume of Theology for Liberal Protestants you can check out Theology for Liberal Presbyterians and Other Endangered SpeciesReforming Protestantism: Christian Commitment in Today’s World, and Hopeful Realism: Recovering the Poetry of Theology.

Noah Movie Review and Interview

We review the movie Noah with J. Ryan Parker and then hear from the director and screenwriter. Noah

Bo and J. Ryan chat about their upcoming posts for the movie and some of the concerns they had coming out of their viewings.

Then Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel talk about their work, their research and their passion for this movie ( begins at minute 40).

Their goal was to “humanize and dramatize” what they refer to as this “primal” story.
