51RVn-JI19L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_Andrew Root is back on the podcast to talk about a cross centered practical theology. In his new book Christopraxis: A Practical Theology of the Cross he pushes back against his field avoiding robust interaction with systematic theology. In the podcast we cover Charles Taylor, Jungel, Kathryn Tanner, Kant, interdisciplinary studies, Schleiermacher, and other goodies. We also discuss his other new book Bonhoeffer as Youth Worker: A Theological Vision for Discipleship and Life TogetherThat’s right, Bonhoeffer was a youth minister with a PhD.

Andy is the Olson Baalson Associate Professor of Youth and Family Ministry at Luther Theological Seminary in Minneapolis. He also has a website and a podcast that you should check out.

Here’s his last visit to the podcast back in 2010 when we talked about despair. Enjoy!
