Podcast

Along with my son Tim Wyatt, a religious and social affairs journalist, I run a podcast called Matters of Life and Death. Each episode is a conversation between the two of us discussing how Christians can engage with a particular issue around healthcare, ethics, technology, science or faith. You can subscribe to the podcast on all podcast apps, including Spotify and Apple Podcasts, or you can listen to our latest episodes below.

Abusive leadership: Mark Driscoll, the hermeneutic of suspicion, Sigmund Freud's chaise longue, and Paul-Timothy relationships Matters of Life and Death

Today’s episode is a little hard to sum up – we begin by reflecting on the recent series of scandals around abusive church leaders, before going to discuss how contemporary culture thinks about sex and power (and in particular how they are exploited) in human relationships. And then we consider to what extent Christians should become as suspicious of our leaders and their relationships, as it seems wider society is.The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill podcast (which we both strongly recommend) can be found here – https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/podcasts/rise-and-fall-of-mars-hill/ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
