Brian Zahnd: Postcards from Babylon Documentary

Inverse Podcast

Drew and Jarrod in conversation with Brian Zahnd on the new documentary inspired by his groundbreaking book “Postcards from Babylon.” Postcards from Babylon, the book: The original gospel proclamation that the Lord of the nations was a crucified Galilean raised from the dead and that salvation was found in vowing allegiance to Jesus of Nazareth unleashed a shock wave that turned the Roman Empire upside down. Early Christianity was subversive and dangerous—dangerous for Christians and a threat to the keepers of the old order. Most of all Christianity was countercultural. But what about contemporary American Christianity? Is it the countercultural way of Jesus or merely a religious endorsement of Americanism? In his provocative book, Postcards From Babylon, Brian Zahnd challenges the reader to see and embrace a daring Jesus-centered Christianity that can again turn the world upside down. https://www.amazon.com.au/Postcards-Babylon-Church-American-Exile-ebook/dp/B07M5HJ5XB Postcards from Babylon, the documentary: Postcards From Babylon is a long-form documentary featuring author and pastor, Brian Zahnd, as he investigates possibly the most important question for the church in North America today:How does the church stay faithful to the beautiful way of Jesus while situated in one of the most divisive political climates in our nation’s history? The film explores how Christians seeking proximity to power has led to a hyperpartisan Nationalistic posture that is demonstrably hindering the witness of Christ. As exiled citizens of a superpower nation, Christians’ deepest allegiance must be to the peaceful Kingdom of God, and from that posture they must always speak truth to power…no matter the cost. https://www.postcardsdoc.com/ Follow Brian on Twitter and Instagram @brianzahndFollow Drew Hart on Instagram and Twitter @druhart.Follow Jarrod McKenna on Instagram and Twitter @jarrodmckenna.

In this special repost episode, Brian and our host Adam Russell discuss the hidden treasures to be found in academic theology when our experience of Christianity no longer feels worthy of Jesus, and the effects a founding pastor’s evolving faith can have on a church body. Brian also shares the historical parallels of our current times and the need for Christians to prioritize practicing love in such a divisive political season. This episode is packed full of personal testimony that is challenging and honest and is sure to inspire a deeper look at our own relationship with Jesus.    Brian’s Website https://brianzahnd.com Postcards from Babylon https://amzn.to/3he6MP8 Word of Life Church https://wolc.com

259 - Brian Zahnd, Politics in Light of God’s Kingdom

Pastor With No Answers Podcast

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 and if asked, would Brian serve on his spiritual advisement board? Brian Zahnd believes strongly in the church. He points out the problems with both the Christian right and left, highlighting how Jesus wouldn’t serve either of their agendas; because frankly, He has his own. The church 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, these accomplishments having nothing to do with the more important Kingdom work we are to value above all. Brian and John Mark 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. Zahnd: https://brianzahnd.comhttps://twitter.com/BrianZahnd Instagram account: www.instagram.com/PWNApodCurrent DonorSee: https://donorsee.com/pwnahelpsGet notifications each time we start raising money to get more information on our current opportunity to “save the day” for team humanity.
