A conversation with Ron Sider - S10.E15
In this special Listening In episode, we remember Ron Sider, who died last week at the age of 82. Ron Sider’s 1977 book “Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger” elevated him to a national and international stage. Its challenging call for Christians to both declare a biblical gospel and demonstrate compassionate care for the poor as part of the gospel message resonated with a generation of young evangelicals. Sider went on to form Evangelicals for Social Action, which championed social causes, and he continued to write, authoring more than 30 books.

Paul Miller interview was insightful.
Great interview with Kristin du Mez
First interview I’ve listened to where the interviewer pushed back and made for a great interview.
