Brian Zahnd is the founder and lead pastor of Word of Life Church , a non-denominational Christian congregation in Saint Joseph, Missouri. Brian and his wife, Peri, founded the church in 1981. Brian is also the author of several books, including, Sinners in the Hands of a Loving God , Water to Wine , A Farewell To Mars , Beauty Will Save the World , and Unconditional?: The Call of Jesus to Radical Forgiveness. In this podcast, we talk about his forthcoming book When Everything’s On Fire: Faith Forged from the Ashes. Brians tells his own story of theological deconstruction and how he had a fresh encounter with Jesus through it all. We then talk quite a bit about the relationship between Jesus and the Bible. Is the Bible the foundation of our faith? Or is Jesus? Or both? And what happens when people equate a fundamentalist view of Scripture and doctrine with Christianity? Typically, you get...a future deconstruction waiting to happen.
