376 - Brian Zahnd and John Mark McMillan (God and Country )

Pastor With No Answers (and friends) Podcast

[this episode originally aired on 10/10/20]John Mark McMillan and Joey Svendsen enjoy their time with Pastor and Author Brian Zahnd, asking him a little about everything. What does Brian Zahnd think of the POTUS (Donald Trump) and if asked, would he serve on his spiritual advisement board? Brian Zahnd believes strongly in the church. He points out the problems with both the "Christian right" and "Christian left," highlighting how Jesus wouldn’t serve either of their agendas; because frankly, He has his own. The church, he says, is a part of the world that's “already changed by Christ.” Until we let this sink in, Zahnd concludes that Christians will continue to seek hope in what their political party can accomplish, none of this having anything to do with the more important Kingdom work we are to value above all. Brian and John Mark also have an interesting take on why many artists are disinterested in politics. And of course, we get into some theology: atonement theories, Christian universalism, the gospel in its fullness.

Brian Zahnd (The Road Less Traveled and Deconstructing Deconstruction)

The Dotcast with Brad Hill

I respect Brian Zahnd immensely.  The courage and integrity and fear of his faith journey (as a pastor of a large church mind you) has been inspiring to watch.  In this episode, we dive into the difference between deconstruction and destruction in our personal lives and our faith journeys and how the message and life of Jesus frankly is still such a compelling path.

Episode 473 - Brian Zahnd: When Everything’s On Fire

Voices In My Head

Voices In My Head (The Rick Lee James Podcast) - Episode 473 - Brian Zahnd: When Everything's On Fire https://brianzahnd.com/ About Brian ZahndBrian Zahnd is the founder and lead pastor of Word of Life Church, a non-denominational Christian congregation in Saint Joseph, Missouri. Brian and his wife, Peri, founded the church in 1981. Brian is also the author of several books, including, Sinners in the Hands of a Loving God, Water to Wine, A Farewell To Mars, Beauty Will Save the World, and Unconditional?: The Call of Jesus to Radical Forgiveness and his latest book, When Everything’s On Fire: Faith Formed From The Ashes. caption https://amzn.to/3wwsnv1...When Everything’s On Fire: Faith Formed From The Ashes Book description: Is it possible to hold on to faith in an age of unbelief?Intellectual certainty has long been a cornerstone of the Christian faith. But in an age of secularism, skepticism, and cynicism, our worldviews have been shaken. Various solutions exist―some double down on certainty, while others deconstruct their faith until there is nothing left at all. But Brian Zahnd offers a third way: what is needed is not a demolition but instead a renovation of faith.Written with personal and pastoral experience, Zahnd extends an invitation to move beyond the crisis of faith toward the journey of reconstruction. As the world rapidly changes in ways that feel incompatible with Christianity, When Everything's on Fire provides much-needed hope. A stronger, more confident faith is possible when it is grounded in the beauty and truth of Christ. Zahnd permits us to risk the journey of deconstruction so that God can forge something more beautiful in its place.
