Frank Schaeffer Interviews Benjamin L. Corey: Undiluted

On Tuesday I once again had a chance to spend some time with my friend, Frank Schaeffer, at his home in Massachusetts. While last time we sat down to talk about his book, Why I’m An Atheist Who Believes in God, this time we switched roles and he interviewed me about my soon to be released book, Undiluted.

We had a great chat, and hit on more topics than I anticipated covering in a discussion about Undiluted– everything from inerrancy, socialism, the marriage of Jesus to right-wing politics, hell, LGBTQ rights, and a host of other topics we touched upon.

What I really loved about the interview was that having read my book twice, Frank really was able to capture precisely what I intended to communicate through Undiluted: the character of God is fully revealed through the empathetic, inclusive, nonviolent, and perfectly loving person we see in Jesus Christ.

I hope it’s a message that will strike a cord with every person who reads it– because if there is a God (and I believe there is) the only way I could ever describe him is, “He looks exactly like Jesus.”

A BIG thanks to Frank for his enthusiasm about the book, and for taking the time to really get at the heart of the issues I bring up in it.

So, here’s the interview– enjoy!
