    Does Paul say that only men are made in the image of God?

    Does Paul say that only men are made in the image of God?

    Biblical scholar (and Holy Post pundit!) Dr. Amy Peeler joins Kaitlyn to tackle the question of a budding theologian: Why does Paul say that men are made in the image of God, and not women? (Does Paul say that?) Kaitlyn and Dr. Peeler cover this important question, as well as some others: Who is Paul and why do we care what he thinks? What does the Bible say about women? How should we handle places in Scripture that seem to contradict?

    How do we know the Bible is true?

    How do we know the Bible is true?

    Theologian Brad East joins Kaitlyn to answer a really important question we have probably all asked: how do we know that the Bible is true? Dr. East also answers questions we might not think to ask but that are also really important: What is the Bible? How did we get it? How are we supposed to read it? We learn three analogies for understanding what the Bible is, some guidelines for how to read it well, and some encouragement to stay curious about passages that are confusing or challenging.

    How is God everywhere, and why can’t we see him?

    How is God everywhere, and why can’t we see him?

    This week theologian Beth Felker Jones joins Kaitlyn to answer a question most of us have probably wondered about: Is God everywhere? And if God is everywhere, why can’t we see God? Dr. Jones explains how God is different from everything God made, how we really will see God “face to face” one day, and how we actually can see God now. Plus, our first “Greatest Moments in Sunday School History” segment!

    Were Adam and Eve babies? How would they know how to get babies out?

    Were Adam and Eve babies? How would they know how to get babies out?

    Kaitlyn is joined by biblical scholar Dru Johnson this week to answer some very practical questions about Adam and Eve: were they created as babies or adults? How did they know about babies? How would Eve have even known she was pregnant? Along the way, we’ll discuss how to read confusing biblical texts, how to ask good questions of the Bible, and why Genesis is so concerned with procreation.

    Why do humans not have superpowers?

    Why do humans not have superpowers?

    Kaitlyn is joined by theologian Christa McKirland to answer this week’s question, “Why do humans not have superpowers? I’d like to fly.” This might sound like a silly question, but it opens up a whole bunch of important theological ideas: why humans were made as dependent creatures, what the “image of God” really means, and what our resurrected bodies will be like. Plus, Christa argues that we actually do have superpowers! (What are they? You’ll have to listen to find out.)

    Why Aren't Humans Perfect?

    Why Aren't Humans Perfect?

    Kaitlyn sits down with Dr. Daniel Hill to answer this week's question, "How come no one is perfect and how was Jesus perfect, even though humans are not supposed to be perfect?" It may seem obvious that of course humans aren't supposed to be perfect, but what are we missing when we define our humanity by our sinfulness? What if there is more to the story? What does it actually mean to be truly human?

Breath of fresh air

I don’t normally write reviews on podcasts but just couldn’t help it as I am loving this podcast right now. I love the premise of listening to the questions that kids have. In my experience adults are often wondering the same things but they might be too afraid to admit they have questions or doubts. The discussion here is weighty and stretching yet gentle and honouring and creative. And the host Kaitlyn is a delight - so thoughtful and curious, really listening and giving her guests space to share their thoughts but also asking great questions and adding her own timely insights. I’ve just recommended this to a friend who is struggling in his faith and I will happily keep recommending it!

Authentic theology at its best!

Curiously Kaitlyn is one of them most encouraging podcasts I’ve ever listened to. She perfectly lives out her theology of multigenerational faith informed by both children and experts. I love listening and feel encouraged in my own role in my small Australian church because someone like Kaitlyn is trailblazing a path that I can follow! Thank you Kaitlyn, you’re my hero!!
