538: Rotten Pastoral Restoration & the Power of Pain with Drew Dyck

The Holy Post

Reactions to last week’s show were strong. The Holy Post crew responds to listener feedback about LGBTQ representation in movies and Al Mohler’s defense of conservatism. Former SBC president, Johnny Hunt, was removed from ministry for sexual assault, but last week four ministry colleagues decided it was time to “restore” him. When should disgraced pastors return to ministry, and have congregational and non-denominational churches proven to be incapable of holding toxic leaders accountable? A new Twitter scandal offers more evidence that Christian Nationalism is a mask for racism and misogyny. Then, friend of the podcast Drew Dyck is back to recommend four books covering topics like the formative power of suffering, new medical research about addiction, the best way to read through the Bible, and a novel about Ireland in the 1980s. Plus, Drew’s war against fake Christmas trees.

Episode 514: How Politics Poisoned the Evangelical Church with Drew Dyck & David Kinnaman

The Holy Post

A recent article in the Atlantic reveals how the political polarization in the United States is now tearing evangelical churches apart. And Marvin Olasky, the former editor of World Magazine, writes about the dramatic change he witnessed among evangelicals over his long career. Drawing from thousands of letters he received, Olasky concludes, “The Republican party platform has become more important than the gospel for many who identify as evangelicals.” Special guest co-host Drew Dyck joins Phil and Skye to discuss the articles. Then, president of Barna research, David Kinnaman, is back with more stats to unpack. With a record number of pastors thinking seriously about quitting, and political polarization listed among the top reasons, Kinnaman says the church is facing a crisis of discipleship. He believes we need a political theology that’s rooted in the gospel rather than partisanship. But is it too late? Also this week, fear over climate change is making progressives question the morality of having kids. And, South Korean college students are flush with cash.

Episode 504: Political Worship Rallies, Trump’s Racial Topography, & New Picks from Drew Dyck

The Holy Post

Conservative political rallies and protests are increasingly using Christian worship music. How is this different than the role of faith in the Civil Rights movement, and why should Christians on all sides be cautious about attaching God’s name to their activism? Then, new data says Trump’s presidency dramatically altered attitudes about race and prejudice in America. And Phil, Skye, and Kaitlyn respond to listener questions about last week’s episode on Disney and LGBTQ representation. Then, author and editor Drew Dyck is back for another round of media recommendations. This installment of “Dyck’s Picks” includes a book on deconstruction, some Easter-themed poetry, and a TV drama with something to say to the church about ethics and the culture war. Plus, beware of un-Lucky Charms.

Episode 71: The Challenge of Self-Control with Author Drew Dyck

In No Hurry with Cole Douglas Claybourn

Why do we struggle so much with controlling our urges? What does it mean to have self-control? What do the Bible and those who study brain science have to say about it? Drew Dyck wrote a book exploring all of that. It's called "Your Future Self Will Thank You," and it was the In No Hurry Podcast Book of the Month. As we close out Lent season, it felt like the perfect book to read.  This conversation is a recording of my Instagram Live chat with Drew. For all Book of the Month interviews with the author, be sure to join us live on Instagram when we do them toward the end of each month. You can find out about them by following me on Instagram @coleclaybourn. I really enjoyed talking with Drew about this book, and I think you'll enjoy his wisdom and humor in this conversation. Be sure to give him a follow on Twitter @drewdyck and on Instagram @drewndyck. Also check out his website — drewdyck.com. PROGRAMMING NOTE: As mentioned on the show, this will be the last episode for Season 2. I'm going to take a pause until later on in the summer as I take some time to focus on my writing. With that, I'm so thrilled to announce that I was accepted to participate in Lysa TerKeurst's Book Proposal Bootcamp — an exciting and rare opportunity for me in my journey of writing a book!  You'll hear me talk plenty about the program in the intro, and a major part of that is the cost. I have set up a GoFundMe to help fund my spot in this program, and I am prayerfully asking that you will consider supporting me — both financially and through prayer!
