Theology Curator is hosted by Kurt Willems (formerly, The Paulcast). Each episode reflects on a theological, formational, or cultural theme. We might dig into the life and letters of a radical Jewish teacher named Paul; converse about a pressing contemporary issue; reflect on the nature of following Jesus today; or even remedy doom-and-gloom preaching with a good old fashioned dose of hope.
This show is an invitation to build bridges between the first century world of the earliest Christ-followers into the twenty-first century reality we now inhabit. The Jesus we excavate from the rubble of tradition might just surprise us all.

The Real Deal
Kurt is the real deal. He prioritizes the Christ-like Way, and handles scripture with nuance and complexity without giving into the binary world of “progressive” or “conservative” theology. He’s just following Jesus and teaching others to do the same regardless of the label we might be tempted to through at him.
