Where Faith and Life Meet (101 Distribution-EMI, 2009)
The Facts: Basically, best-selling author Donald Miller hosts conversations with notable authors, pastors, and theologians on camera about issues related to putting faith in practice. And we watch. Each conversation consists of three 15-minute episodes. The producer identifies the target audience as people "out of college."
The Slant: It's not a lecture. It's not simple Q&A. The conversations are informal, but structured and well-edited, so you don't feel like you're simply listening to unscripted ramblings. Miller asks good, probing questions. His conversation partners are thoughtful and articulate. For example, "Frustration and False Gods" with Dan Allender. Tremper Longman has a fabulous conversation about how our misconceptions of the Christian life affect our conduct.
