This is a very special edition of the Theology Nerd Throwdown. Not only does the BoDaddy try to provoke me (theologically speaking) toward a rowdy defense of the resurrection but we have a very special guest – Todd Littleton. Todd is the greatest Southern Baptist Minister on planet earth. He is also the technical brains behind our High Gravity online classes, pastor to the HBC Deacon of the Year, & now officially an Elder.
Hence forth all ye Homebrewed Christianity Deacons shall know Todd Littleton as Elder of the Okie.
Over the course of the episode we discuss the nature of the resurrection, the divine attributes, the function of doubt in faith, atheism as a spiritual practice, the church and its obligations to the poor, the World Vision debacle, and a number of other goodies. Here’s the blog post where Bo provoked the first segment. It was a blast to have a group of local Deacons in the room hanging out after we finished the High Gravity session on Mary Daly. If you are ever visiting LA tweet us up & maybe we will have a recording you can join in on.
