In the Ring: Debate in an Age of Deconstruction with Dr. Ben Haupt

Forget prayer, America needs the use of logic and civilized discourse! So do preachers. What if preachers actually honestly engage the culture instead of cry “martyr”? Ringside meets The Craft of Preaching with special guest Dr. Ben Haupt.


  1. Chaos of communication! Rules of engagement for the preacher and polarized topics.
  2. Forming God’s people to interact with a hostile world with exploratory thought.
  3. Can a preacher talk politics from the pulpit? Biased preaching
  4. Tertullian fun: tackling polarization
  5. Church proclaiming to society
