In Season 2 of The Pietist Schoolman Podcast, I’ll be joined by Mark Pattie (senior pastor, Salem Covenant Church in New Brighton, MN) as we think aloud through our new book project for InterVarsity Press: Hope for Better Times: Pietism and the Future of Christianity. Helping us out as producer — and, in effect, serving as a surrogate for our audience — is my frequent podcasting/webisoding/teaching collaborator Sam Mulberry.
In this episode, we introduce themselves, share our hopes for the book, vent our concerns about doing it well (can Pietists be both irenic and critical? can we seriously, and with any humility, talk about “the future of Christianity” and aspire to the “renewal” of individuals, the church, and the world??), and throw out an initial big question for our listeners to answer.
This is very much meant to be a conversation — a chance for future readers to shape the book even as we write it! — so please feel free to leave comments, suggestions, and questions here on the CHP show pages, at my personal blog, or on the podcast Facebook page.
