31. Kevin Max, Deconstruction & the Rise of Exvangelicals
The Preaching Donkey Podcast
You may have noticed, but over the last few years, there has been a number of influential Christian leaders renounce their faith, or "deconstruct" as some call it.Deconstruction has a spectrum. For some it means a complete abandonment of Christian thought and practice, while for others it's merely a departure from some tenants they used to hold and believe.The latest in this trend is Kevin Max of DCTalk. He let his followers know in a recent tweet that he has been on a decades long journey of deconstructing but still believes in the "Universal Christ."In this episode, I walk through these recent departures from faith and see if we can drill down on some root causes, what we can do about it in our churches, and what lessons we can learn as pastors and church leaders.
For full show notes & information about the hosts www.leahchapman.org/podcasts/s6e14Leah & Andrew discuss the deconstruction of former DC Talk member Kevin Max. We talk about his recent tweets describing his change in faith. We define deconstruction, exvangelical, and universal Christ.

The latest deconstruction story of Kevin Max has some people asking how this happens and what can we do to fortify ourselves in our faith. Cooper Stuff shares some thoughts concerning our lack of communicating the true gospel that begins with repentance. To truly love Christ is to keep his commandments. That is what a true Jesus Freak is. ► Buy John’s new book, Awake & Alive to Truth: Finding Truth in the Chaos of a Relativistic World ► Subscribe to the podcast: www.johnlcooper.com Apple: http://bit.ly/cooperstuff Spotify: http://bit.ly/cooperstuffspotify CastBox: http://bit.ly/cooperstuffcast ► Connect with John L.

In this wide-ranging conversation, Kevin shares about the birth of DC talk, the Christian music industry, his time at Liberty University, his faith deconstruction story, his friendship with Larry Norman (this awesome tribute album), and a number of fascinating stories.
Kevin Max: Considering Boundaries + Mark Heard's "Dry Bones Dance"
The True Tunes Podcast
Kevin Max has been kicking against boundaries for over thirty years, first as one-third of a platinum-selling pop-rap group, (DC Talk,) and then as a poet and genre testing indie artist. Now he’s leaving his solo career behind to launch a new band, Sad Astronauts, right after releasing an acclaimed tribute to Larry Norman’s celebrated Only Visiting This Planet album. What might we be able to glean from an artist like Kevin when it comes to pushing into new territory, redefining success, and becoming more mindful of the boundaries we work within – or allow to define us? And on the jukebox we crank up the legendary Mark Heard’s tentpole album, Dry Bones Dance, as we anticipate Lo-Fidelity Records’ upcoming super deluxe reissue, by talking with two of the artists who worked with Heard on that album, vocalist Kate Miner and bassist and Chapman Stick maestro, Fergus Marsh. We are also excited to present the late Mark Heard himself in the form of some vintage interview tape-recorded around the time of the album's original release in 1990.
