My name is John, I am a pastoral theologian and Begin Again (formerly Ambushed) is one of the ways I try to make good use what I have been given. I enjoy talking with people about new insights from or about church history, developmental theories, Spiral Dynamics, the enneagram, Christian mysticism, and integrating all of them together.
Julius Spradley Of Contemplative Icons
I came across the work of Julius Spradley of Contemplative Icons on social media. As a fan of iconography myself, I thought, "Why not reach out and see if he would be willing to chat about his art?" Needless to say, he said he would be up for it. I found out so much about icons that I did not previously know about it. There is geometry, harmony, symbolism, and so much more that goes into these pieces of "visual theology.
After we we done, Julius was so kind as to send some other iconographers worth checking out.
Here is his recommendations of people to look into:
Philip Davydov and Olga Shalamova
Julia Bridget Hayes

Kris Cook, Kierkegaard And Purity Of Heart
Kris Cook is a NJ born and raised CMA pastor and missionary now living in Bordeaux, France along with his family. I've known him for nearly 15 years and is equal parts devoted to the Christian path as well as being an intellectual in his own right. Having read the entire catalog of Soren Kierkegaard, Kris was the perfect person to talk about Kierkegaard's Purity of Heart is to Will One Thing.

The Harrowing of Hell
Happy Easter, y'all! I hope this finds you well, and that it is something of a breath of fresh air for you this Easter 2021!
Makes you think
John dispenses with the ordinary and reaches people across the spectrum from atheists to theologians. He will both challenge your long held assumptions yet console you with the grace of the gospel. Listen to be inspired and encouraged.
Best Youth Leader Ever
Aside from the incredible innate podcasting technical skills (vocals, etc.), topics discussed on this show are invaluable for anyone desiring edifying development. John is wise beyond his years and continues to consistently publish all kinds of powerful material. Highly recommended for late 20’s!
