Welcome back to the Losing Our Religion series of The Russell Moore Podcast! This special series of episodes around Russell Moore’s newest book, Losing Our Religion: An Altar Call for Evangelical America, explores the Christian faith in confusing times.
This week, Moore welcomes his good friend, author, and professor Karen Swallow Prior to the show. Moore and Prior discuss their newest titles—Prior’s The Evangelical Imagination: How Stories, Images, and Metaphors Created a Culture in Crisis and Moore’s Losing Our Religion: An Altar Call for Evangelical America, which have powerful crossovers. They talk about the history of evangelicalism, the significance of metaphors and language in the church, and biblical interpretation. Their conversation covers conversion stories, social media, and their thoughts on the classic John Bunyan work The Pilgrim’s Progress.
Tune in for an episode that is engaging, insightful, and infused with hope in the gospel.
