I grew up Southern Baptist, and we were encouraged to look suspiciously at a number of things. Foremost among them were the consumption of alcohol and the high-church celebration of saints from Christian history. When I left the Baptist church, I reconsidered both of these prohibitions, and in light of the New Testament I began to see them both as gifts to Christians. Still, I’m hoping my teenage self isn’t somehow listening to this conversation. Our guest today on Christian Humanist Profiles is Dr. Michael P. Foley, whose latest book, Drinking with the Saints: A Sinner’s Guide to a Holy Happy Hour, is an insightful and humorous combination of alcohol and the church calendar.
