Brian McLaren joins me in this episode to discuss his new book Life After Doom. In it, we wrestle with redefining faith, civilization, and ecological consciousness. We delve into theological reflections, reinterpreting religious practices to align with Jesus’s teachings, advocating for a paradigm shift in societal structures, and emphasizing the urgent need for sustainable living. Moreover, we discuss creating inclusive spaces for spiritual growth and action.

Here’s Brian’s new book, Life After Doom: Wisdom & Courage for a World Falling Apart

In the conversation, we discuss Kim Stanley Robinson’s provocative book Ministry for the Future.
