We may be in the midst of an ‘economic downturn’ but at Homebrewed Christianity we are having a ‘theological boom.’  If there was one single living person I would want to talk to about theology and economics Joerg Rieger is that person.  Guess what? He is here!

Rieger is the Wendland-Cook Endowed Professor of Constructive Theology at Perkins School of Theology (SMU), prolific author, regular speaker, motorcycle enthusiast, and just plain awesome dude.  In the podcast we discuss the relationship of politics, power, the economy, and our present crisis from a theological and biblical perspective.  We move from the abstract to the practical and along the way I hope it’s clear we both had a good bit of fun.
