    An Interview with Scot McKnight & Laura Barringer

    An Interview with Scot McKnight & Laura Barringer

    Scot McKnight and Laura Barringer have a conversation with Amy Fritz about their book, A Church Called Tov: Forming a Goodness Culture That Resists Abuses of Power and Promotes Healing.

    Scot, Laura, and Amy talk about why pastors don't always publicly speak up when they see victims tell their story, where the term "wounded resisters" came from, the cost of speaking up, and the advice Scot gives to those who plan to go into ministry.

Thank you for starting the conversation!

Amy, this is a timely podcast. Thank you for being courageous and clear as you communicate the reality of spiritual abuse. May God continue to open the dark and dirty corners of his church and call us all into the light of the glory of Christ. I pray this podcast will help raise awareness of this sad and prevalent issue. I pray it helps those who have been afflicted by the blows of abuse to look to Jesus and his word to recover and heal.

So needed

Most of the people I know have gone through church hurt at some point in their lives. Thank you so much for being willing to share these stories and she’d light on the issues of abuse that are so prevalent.

The pot needs stirring!

Thank you for bringing these abuses out of the shadows and into the light. It’s way past time to address spiritual abuse and start healing. Anybody who accuses this podcast of being divisive is complicit in trying to hide sin in the church. It’s abusive, anti-Christ, and decimates our witness.
