    Shane Claiborne Tells Me Where I’m Wrong on the Death Penalty

    Shane Claiborne Tells Me Where I’m Wrong on the Death Penalty

    Does “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth” really mean what we think it does?
    In this episode, Russell Moore is joined by author and activist Shane Claiborne to discuss the death penalty. While Claiborne and Moore both agree that execution should not be celebrated, they differ on whether it is a means of justice.
    Tune in for a gracious and frank discussion on how Christians should think about capital punishment. With thought-provoking insights on the reality of the effects on former executioners, Claiborne describes restorative justice, proposes that “the road of violence is a dead end,” and emphasizes that “we are not made to kill.” Claiborne and Moore wrestle with the similarities between war and capital punishment and ultimately wrestle with a fundamental question: Has Jesus commanded us to kill?

    Philip Yancey Survived the Bible Belt

    Philip Yancey Survived the Bible Belt

    Russell Moore is joined by Philip Yancey, author and former journalist, to discuss his new memoir, Where the Light Fell. Yancey and Moore have a lot in common, including their Bible Belt upbringings and even a shared distant ancestor.

He and Moore talk about the toxic ideas that arise when churches paint a false picture of who God is. Finally, they discuss the eye-opening, true nature of God and how, ultimately, his love should cast out fear.

    Beth Moore Didn't Expect Us to Be Us

    Beth Moore Didn't Expect Us to Be Us

    Russell Moore and Beth Moore are often mistaken for siblings, spouses, or even parent and child in social media discussions. While they share no familial relation, Russell and Beth have shared similar joys and heartbreaks in their Christian lives. They both know the beauty of growing up in churches that loved them well. They’ve experienced the privileges and complexities of living as public faith leaders. And, more recently, they’ve both walked through the process of leaving the Southern Baptist Convention—a place they’d called home for decades.
    In this episode, Russell and Beth talk about how both staying and leaving can be tremendously difficult and tremendously sweet. They share honestly about how painful and disorienting it can be when the people in your inner circles suddenly seem to turn against you. They discuss how their experiences may seem unique, but in many ways, they mirror relationship losses that Americans and people all around the globe have passed over the past several years. And they call their brothers and sisters to dwell together in unity, empowering one another to testify to the gospel.

James Veverka ,

Sound thinking, Christ like heart

I have only listen to a few episodes. I’m a big fan of Russell Moore. He is a person I enjoy listening to, even if I disagree with him. I find myself in a very confusing time. I’m glad for this voice of reason.

Grateful Hearer ,

Sanity!

Praise God for the maturity, wisdom, dignity, respect and goodness found here! SO lacking in the Body, yet SO needed! Thank you.

We need more of this type of dialogue in the Church in America today. Thank you, Dr. Moore!
