Episode 14 - Remembering Martin Luther King Jr.
Johanna, Jason, and Teer discuss Stanley's essay, 'Remembering Martin Luther King Jr. Remembering: A Response to Christopher Beem.' This essay was first featured in The Journal of Religious Ethics, Vol. 23, No. 1 (Spring, 1995).
"The question of the relation of my work to that of Martin Luther King Jr. cannot be resolved with the theoretical tools Christopher Beem brings to the task. Stanley Fish has written that "those who detach King's words from the history that produced them erase the fact of that history from the slate, and they do so, paradoxically, in order to prevent that history from being truly and deeply altered." The vice of liberalism is not selfishness so much as a forgetfulness that spreads like a blight from the habit of abstraction. Martin Luther King Jr. remembered his people, his savior, and his church, and he called the rest of us to share those memories. Therein lay his strength."

"Moralistic liberalism and individual pietism are mirror evils that have made the church understood as the distinctive Body of Christ virtually invisible in America."

Episode 11 - The Good Life
Episode 10 - The Story of the Kingdom
Johanna, Jason, and Teer discuss 'Jesus the Story of the Kingdom,' one of the concluding chapters from 'The Peaceable Kingdom' (1983).
Christian ethics is about being schooled in the narrative of Jesus and discipleship. It is not about what you would do in a hypothetical situation, it is about forming people who will act in a particular way when those situations come up.
Episode 9: Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Political Theology
"The Gospel is not an answer to questions produced by human anxiety but a proclamation of a fact."
In the latest installment of YANA, we discuss Stanley's essay, "Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Political Theology," from his book "Performing the Faith: Bonhoeffer and the Practice of Nonviolence."

Worth the listen
I came to this podcast recently, but went to the beginning and listened to all the hermeneutics episodes. Overall I found each one to spark interesting trains of thought.
I'm excited that the show has shifted to engage with Hauerwas' work, and grateful for the opportunity to engage with his thought.
Great show, but.....
I just listened to the show on theodicy. I reminded me why reformed theology seems so popular to young evangelicals and why so many evangelicals love trump. There is a certain comfort to know the God controls everything. Even if in the end it makes God worse than the devil. Sometimes people find comfort in a dictator even if they are the cause of evil.
When culture takes religious terminology and distorts it to fit certain narratives it makes speaking “Christian” difficult. These three are working to create a better understanding to what things actually mean. Super thankful for the things I learn from these three weekly.
