Teer and I recently had the privilege of interviewing Jeff Pugh on his new book The Home-brewed Christianity Guide to the End Times: Theology After You’ve Been Left Behind.
I first “met” Jeff through his book Religionless Christianity: Dietrich Bonhoeffer in Troubled Times. If you’ve been duped into reading that crap Eric Metaxas book on Bonhoeffer then here’s an alternative.
Jeff is an ordained United Methodist Elder in Virginia and teaches Religious Studies at Elon College. If I have anything to say about it, he’s going to be a Crackers and Grape Juice Regular as we seek to develop an East Coast flavor for Tripp Fuller’s Home-brewed Christianity family.
Everyone knows someone who subscribes to what Jeff likes to call “batshit crazy” theology about the eschaton. Take a listen so you can learn to understand your sister-in-law, co-worker, or neighbor.
You can download the episode and subscribe to future ones in the iTunes store here.
We’re up to 15K listeners now.
We’ve got more listeners per episode than the average UMC has on Sunday am.
In fact, if podcasts were churches, we’d be the pastors of one of the largest United Methodist Churches in the world.
Even better, we do this s#$% gratis, in our own free time just because we think ordinary people in and out of the church need conversations about God, faith, and life without stained-glass language.
Give us 4 Stars and a good review there in the iTunes store. It’s not hard and it makes all the difference.
It’ll make it more likely more strangers and pilgrims will happen upon our meager podcast. ‘Like’ our Facebook Page too. You can find it here.
Again, special props to my friend Clay Mottley for letting us use his music gratis. Check out his new album.
