When I posted episode #130 I mentioned that the national attention The Coming Evangelical Collapse received was a catalyst in Michael’s decision to publish a book. In this podcast episode he will talk about choosing a publishing agent. He also responds to the Top 10 Questions about that three part series of evangelical collapse posts once they were suddenly noticed by more people.
Let me begin by apologizing for not posting last week. I never realized; my wife mentioned it on Saturday.
Episode #130 is quintessential Michael Spencer. In this episode he talks about the sudden rise in popularity of the Coming Evangelical Collapse posts. The national level of attention of that series of posts received is in large part responsible for the book deal that later followed. The second half of the episode shifts to evangelicalism in the modern American culture. He uses a borrowed term to note the effect Rush Limbaugh had over the course of two decades to define and direct Christian conservatives.
In this episode: Music from Randy Stonehill
Gospel of Mark study on Jesus Shaped Spirituality
Oxfordian Heressy (more commonly known as Oxfordian Theory)
Very interesting thoughts, considering where we are now and realizing this podcast is a decade old, on people that become “experts” after reading a few articles from a Google search.
Exposition on The Coming Evangelical Collapse; while archived posts from InternetMonk.com no longer exist, you can read an article bearing the same title, compiled from those posts, on The Christian Science Monitor. That publication is behind a paywall but you can read three free articles each month.
