This week on The Bulletin, hosts Mike Cosper, Nicole Martin, and editor in chief Russell Moore investigate the American crisis of authority and the alluring temptation of power. The three engage in lively conversation about International House of Prayer’s newest abuse allegations, and filmmaker Robert Abbott stops by to reflect on IU basketball coach Bobby Knight’s brash style and violent behavior. Finally, the trio wraps up the episode with a discussion of the GOP’s options now that Mike Pence has left the presidential race.
