“So I was having sex with a girl I didn’t know…”

WARNING:

This episode contains language that might upset some of you.

It’s also, thanks to Morgan Freeman (really) the best conversation yet on Crackers & Grape Juice.

We had a single question planned for him and then we listened and rode the conversation where it led.

To sex and the spirituality of vulnerability, why Otis Redding is better religious music than Matt Redman, the rejections of the institutional church, and why worship (music) IS entertainment.

Teer and Jason, joined by our podcast friend Todd Littleton, caught up with Barry Taylor at the Theology Beer Camp hosted by Tripp Fuller of Homebrewed Christianity and National Geographic’s Story of God. Barry is an Episcopal priest, Professor of Faith and Culture at Fuller Theological Seminary, and the author of Entertainment Theology: New-Edge Spirituality in a Digital Democracy.

As you’ll hear, Barry got his start in the faith while a sound engineer for the hard-rocking (and freaking awesome) band AC/DC. Barry is also a co-host on ‘The Story of God-Cast’ which is the official after show of the hit NatGeo series ‘The Story of God’ starring Morgan Freeman.

One of the delights of hanging out with so many theology nerds, podcaster, and theology elders like John Cobb at Theology Beer Camp is hearing the wonderful feedback for Crackers and Grape Juice. It left us determined to double down and bring you the best damn theo-podcast we can.

405728Is your God like a drunk Mr. Miyagi? Or is your Christianity closer to Jersey Shore?

For this episode of Crackers and Grape Juice, Jason talks with Eric Hall, author of the forthcoming The Home-brewed Christianity Guide to God: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about the Almighty. 

unknownEric is a Professor of Religion and Philosophy at Carroll College in Helena, Montana. In his book, he narrates a bit of his own journey from Pentecostalism to Catholicism and the beauty of ancient Christianity that become available to him once he gave up on sola scriptura.

Check it out and pre-order the book!

Be on the lookout for future episodes that we’ve already got in the can: interviews with Eric Hall, Steve Austin, Fred Schmidt, Ian McFarland, Joseph Mangina, Kenneth Tanner, Fleming Rutledge, William Kavanaugh, Bishop Andy Doyle, and Poet/Undertake Thomas Lynch.

We’ve already got enough interviews lined up to take us into the new year.

HBC_Covers_EndTimes_FINAL_2.25.16Teer 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.

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.

So PLEASE…
