Bo sat down with J. Ryan Parker last month after they were given a sneak-peek at the movie 12 Years A Slave. After a review of the merits in the movie-making elements of the film, the talk turns theological.
If you haven’t seen the movie, you may want to skip to the 13-14 minutes mark to avoid some big spoilers.
Around the 38th minute mark is when things turn theological.
