Rob Saler, an exciting and highly attuned theologian and culture maven, talks with Peter about the ways in which culture and theology learn from each other. Inevitably they focus on his favorite band—Radiohead, on whom Saler has authored a recent book.
In this fascinating conversation, I talk with Dr. Robert Saler of Christian Theological Seminary, where he serves as Research Professor of Religion and Culture, Associate Dean for Evaluation, and Executive Director of the Center for Pastoral Excellence at Christian Theological Seminary (CTS) in Indianapolis. Saler has spent a lot of time thinking about what it means to be "church," how the church should relate to culture, and the theology of the cross. We also discuss his recent and fascinating transition from Lutheranism to Orthodoxy.
