The view that our physical self is less important than our spiritual substance prevails among today's Christians. Yet our guest maintains that we don't have bodies; we are bodies. Eschewing monism and guided by Scripture, he offers a holistic theology of the human body as he addresses questions about sexuality, gender, death, resurrection, and other topics.
Times of crisis call for revolutionary leadership. What better model could we have for courage and creativity under fire than those who found themselves in positions of leadership during the American Revolutionary War? Men and women, famous and obscure, of European and African descent--the leaders of the revolution faced outrageous odds and dire consequences should they fail. Yet they stuck to their principles, winning the most unlikely of victories and not only shaping a new country but reshaping the world. Join us to learn how to lead in our day with revolutionary courage, confidence, and a serving heart.
