Episode 472: The “Sin of Empathy” & Spotting Toxic Leaders with Jamin Goggin & Kyle Strobel
The Holy Post
Former megachurch pastor, evangelical wunderkind, and author of “I Kissed Dating Goodbye,” Josh Harris, has since left his wife and renounced his faith. He’s now pitching himself as an expert guide for other ex-vangelicals. What does his story tell us about the evangelical subculture? Then, strange things are happening at John Piper’s church in Minneapolis where leaders are clashing over issues of race and abuse. And some pastors are resigning after being accused of “the sin of empathy.” Then, Jamin Goggin and Kyle Strobel return to discuss revisions to their 2017 book “The Way of the Dragon or the Way of the Lamb.” They stopped selling the book and revised it because one of the Christian leaders they celebrated as a “lamb” turned out to be a “dragon.” They’re now asking, why do we so often fail to spot toxic church leaders? Plus, scientists are making mini-brains from stem cells. But to their surprise, the brains have grown eyes. Leading Phil to ask, What could possibly go wrong?

Jason Weiland and Linda Tokar start part one of a four part series with Kyle Strobel, co-author of the book: ‘Beloved Dust: Drawing Close to God by Discovering the Truth About Yourself.’ Believers sometimes struggle with the tension between being created from dust, a vapor, fragile, of the earth, yet, at the same time we are eternal, his children, precious and beloved. These are all true yet our ‘lowness’ doesn’t make us less significant in the eyes of God. He loves us, his finest creation.For complete show notes, click HERE
Episode 464: The Four Americas & Honest Prayer with Kyle Strobel
The Holy Post
Phil, Christian, and Skye do a deep dive into George Packer’s recent article in the Atlantic called “How America Fractured into 4 Parts.” Packer argues that Americans no longer agree on the country’s purpose, values, history, or meaning. Is he right? And how do Packer’s 4 Americas map onto the church? Then, Skye interviews Kyle Strobel about his new book “Where Prayer Becomes Real.” Obviously, the book is about prayer but it’s also about something even deeper and more foundational to our faith—honesty. It’s vital for our transformation but in short supply in many churches. Plus, scientists say the earth has a pulse. Did God design the earth to destroy life every 27.5 million years? That sets the Holy Post crew down a path into theology, the problem of evil, and why ferrets are bad pets.

This week, our hosts Brandon Robinson and Rob Jacobs enlist help from friend of the show and author, Kyle Strobel, sharing his new book: Where Prayer Becomes Real. If we're honest, most of us feel bored, distracted, or discouraged in prayer. We look for resources to give us the "right" words or teach us the "right" technique and are disappointed when they don't seem to help. Prayer is a place for us to be honest, present, and known--a place for us to offer ourselves and receive God.For complete show notes, click HERE

Prayer Isn't What We Think It Is: How Honesty With God Transforms Your Soul - Kyle Strobel - Episode 33
Prayer is one of the most basic disciplines of the Christian life. Yet, many Christians are struck with fears and uncertainties as they speak to God. A curious thing happens when we turn to the Bible and see Jesus praying. We find anguish and honesty, anger and anxiety. There are times of sharp and pungent expressions of the human condition and emotions. All of this directed to God, as if he could take it. Praying with honesty can feel irreverent, but what if this is the way God actually wants us to pray. What if we've fundamentally misunderstood prayer. Kyle Strobel is a systematic theologian who teaches spiritual formation at the Talbot School of Theology at Biola University. He has co-written a book titled "Where Prayer Becomes Real".
Where Prayer Becomes Real (Alan with Kyle Strobel)
Most of you in our listening community are people who pray. Or at least people who have prayed. You may be grateful for the opportunity to come into the presence of God. Your prayer may feel fruitful and life-giving. Or, you may have become disillusioned when it comes to praying. You might feel like you’ve come to pray but God didn’t seem to come to listen or respond. It’s not an uncommon experience. But, in the end, you probably still want to be a person who lives in the presence of God—a person who prays. Today, I’m talking with my friend, Kyle Strobel, about a new book that he and John Coe have written called Where Prayer Becomes Real. We’ll talk about our experience of prayer and how we might enjoy the reality of God’s presence. That’s the focus of today’s episode of the Unhurried Living podcast. Kyle Strobel is the assistant professor of spiritual theology and formation at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University, and is the author of Formed for the Glory of God (IVP, 2013) and co-author of Beloved Dust (Thomas Nelson, 2014). Kyle can be found at KyleStrobel.com or on Twitter.
#10 Kyle Strobel: Spiritual Formation & Misunderstanding Power and Politics
In this conversation with systematic theologian, author and professor Kyle Strobel, we discuss a few topics he has been writing and talking about over his career. We focus specifically on Spiritual Formation (and how the evangelical church is having a renaissance in it but may not fully understand it), as well as the concept of "power" from the perspective of culture and the Bible. We highlight where they overlap and differ in the realm of politics, the interpersonal level, and much more while showing that it is deeply connected to spiritual formation. ----more---- Follow Kyle's work: - https://twitter.com/KyleStrobel?ref_s...
