Brian Allain and Tood Deatherage are co-collaborators (along with several others) in the new book How to Heal Our Divides: A Practical Guide. In this episode, Reformed Journal editor Jeff Munroe talks with Brian and Todd about the book. They especially focus on Todd's work in peacemaking with Telos and the latest round of violence in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
In this episode Kate Kooyman talks to former RCA General Secretary Wesley Granberg-Michaelson about his new book "Without Oars: Casting Off Into a Life of Pilgrimage." "Pilgrimage" becomes a metaphor for the journey of faith, based not on making one's beliefs fit into a confessional box, but on where one walks.
