ReligionProf Podcast with Brian Wesolowski, Part 2 May 15, 2019

This week’s episode of the ReligionProf Podcast continues my conversation with Brian Wesolowski. As I did for the first part, so too this week I want to provide links to a wide array of content that connects with the theme of our conversation on the podcast, namely the intersection of technology and grace. Hopefully the reasons why I thought these articles would be of interest in connection with this theme will be self-evident in most if not indeed in all cases. If not, please do start a conversation in the comments section below and speculate about – or ask me – what on earth I was thinking!
