This is the kick-off of our newest online pop-up community – Ruining Dinner When the headlines bleed and your relatives are screaming at each other online, who knows what this election season will bring.

Hosea: a film 

This week I had a great conversation with the filmmakers behind the new feature film Hosea – a modern-day retelling of the ancient biblical story through the eyes of its forgotten female character. The film comes out today on iTunes, Amazon, etc. and I definitely recommend you check it out.
For so long, the ancient story of Hosea has been told from the male perspective as a metaphor for love and forgiveness. It has also and unfortunately been used throughout history to subjugate women, justify spousal abuse, and blame victims of violence and sex trafficking as though their painful experiences were their own fault. There’s so much good stuff to explore, consider, and discuss in this film.
The Hosea team is making it easy for the Homebrewed community to host small group film screenings and discussions. You can visit this page to learn more! You can even email hosea@levelground.co to access an online screener to see if it’s a good fit!
*Before you watch: In addition to dealing with themes of love, redemption, and identity, Hosea also covers sensitive – sometimes triggering – topics such as sexual abuse and self-harm. Given the film’s dynamic themes, we want to make sure anyone watching the film is able to do so safely and in a way that welcomes meaningful reflection and dialogue.

David Gushee: After Evangelicalism 

David Gushee returns to the podcast for a book launch party!

His brand new book After Evangelicalism is out and we had a live stream book launch. It was a bunch of fun to reconnect with David and celebrate my new favorite book of his.

Dr. David P. Gushee is Distinguished University Professor of Christian Ethics and Director of the Center for Theology and Public Life at Mercer University. Dr. Gushee is the elected Past-President of both the American Academy of Religion and Society of Christian Ethics.

Book Details…
A building crescendo of developments, culminating in evangelical support for the Trump presidency, has led many evangelicals to question the faith they inherited. If being Christian means rejecting LGBTQ persons and supporting systemic racism, perhaps their Christian journey is over.

David Gushee offers a new way forward for disillusioned post-evangelicals by first analyzing what went wrong with U.S. white evangelicalism in areas such as evangelical identity, biblical interpretation, church life, sexuality, politics, and race. Gushee then proposes new ways of Christian believing, belonging, and behaving, helping post-evangelicals from where they are to a living relationship with Christ and an intellectually cogent and morally robust post-evangelical faith. After Evangelicalism shows that it is possible to follow Jesus out of evangelical Christianity, and more than that, it’s necessary.

From Lebron James to the Black Panther: Black Theology QnA w/ Adam Clark 

We had a bunch of questions and we attempted to answer them!

The questions came from all the cool people in our Black Theology reading group. If you want to join and get access to the readings, deep dive lectures, and more than head over here.

Here’s the books we recommended:

 

my new book 🙂

Dr. Adam Clark is Associate Professor of Theology at Xavier University. He is committed to the idea that theological education in the twenty first century must function as a counter-story. One that equips us to read against the grain of the dominant culture and inspires one to live into the Ignatian dictum of going forth “to set the world on fire.” To this end, Dr. Clark is intentional about pedagogical practices that raise critical consciousness by going beneath surface meanings, unmasking conventional wisdoms and reimagining the good. He currently serves as co-chair of Black Theology Group at the American Academy of Religion, actively publishes in the area of black theology and black religion and participates in social justice groups at Xavier and in the Cincinnati area. He earned his PhD at Union Theological Seminary in New York where he was mentored by James Cone.
