    Scott Harrower on The Dawn of Sunday(studies in theology and trauma) - Part 2

    Dani Ross and Parker Haratine continue the interview with Scott Harrower on his recently released book, Dawn of Sunday, co-written with Joshua Cockayne and Preston Hill. We pick up this episode by talking about God and the Church’s involvement in recovery from trauma, forgiveness and reconciliation, and hope.

    As a brief proviso: In this episode, we discuss a wide range of issues dealing with trauma which means the discussion may not be suitable for some people at the moment, so please feel free to come back later when it may be more suitable. Though this podcast takes a theological approach to trauma and recovery, everything we say assumes that the best of medical treatment is included in the process of recovery.

    We hope you enjoy!

    Episode timestamps:

    1:05-6:30. Means to recovery: an integrated self.
    6:30-11:00. The place and limitations of martyrs in recovery.
    11:20-17:05. God and the Church’s involvement in trauma and recovery.
    17:05-27:27. Forgiveness and reconciliation.
    27:27 -34:00. Big picture and Hope.
    34:00-End. Big Picture and practices.

Theologically Rich

Some important conversations with today’s leading theologians, Biblical exegetes, and philosophers. Enjoyable listen and easy to follow while still being theologically rich.

Great new podcast with a lot of promise

The mire of Christian podcasts is extensive and ever-growing, and it is uncommon for one emerging from the academy to adequately reach the questions & concerns facing both people in the church pews and university students. This podcast has refreshingly succeeded in doing this, and it does so with a unique ability to engage with biblical scholarship, theology, and contemporary philosophy. Indeed, no other podcast boasts (aside from maybe Dale Tuggy's Trinities Podcast) such a wide range of analytic theologian involvement, especially when it comes to including and engaging with exegetes. Not only is it wide-ranging in this way, but its line-up of scholars includes guests from a range of Christian traditions and methodological starting points. Despite the technical sound issues in the early episodes, it is well worth heeding, and I look forward to what they do in the future.
