The Irish philosopher and theologian Peter Rollins, an important voice in the emergent church movement, recently dropped in at Claremont School of Theology for an engaging evening of theological discussion in the wake of the release of his newest book, “Insurrection: To Believe is Human – To Doubt, Divine”. Fortunately for all of you, we were able to record it and make it available here.
