The Soul of Christianity
On this podcast we get to the essential element of Christianity as Debi Winrich has sought out a few of her friends and acquaintances to help her get to the “soul” of Christianity in a way that is both intellectually stimulating and also accessible.
  1. In the third episode, the reverend Paul Walker outlines why we ask God "thy Kingdom come."
  2. In the second episode, Ken Jones explains the first petition of the Lord's Prayer.
  3. In episode 1, Dan and Debi talk with Donavon Riley about Luther's exposition of the Lord's Prayer.
  4. On this episode of the Soul of Christianity, Debi and Dan chat with Paul Ralph of “the ideas cafe” based in Holland Landing, Ontario, Canada. Paul has a way with words and has a story of faith and personal struggles that you don’t want to miss.
  5. On this episode of the Soul of Christianity, Debi and Dan chat with friend and pastor Chris Gallagher. Chris is the pastor of Lutheran Church of the Cross in Oceanside, California, and has known Debi and Dan for over a decade. Pastor Chris’ story is one that you don’t want to miss (he was even once featured on Oprah!)
  6. On this episode of the Soul of Christianity, Debi and Dan chat with Michael Ramsden, President of Ravi Zacharias Ministries. Michael is a treasure trove of anecdotes from his own life as a non-believer turned banker turned apologist.
  7. On this episode of the Soul of Christianity, Debi and Dan chat with author and speaker Cameron McAllister of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. Their discussion revolves around Cameron’s story of leaving the church and coming back. From Swedish Death metal to philosophy and parenting, this conversation is sure to help those dealing with kids who have left the church.
  8. On this episode of the Soul of Christianity Debi and Dan chat with David Zahl of Mockingbird Ministries. Dave, Debi, and Dan talk about life in quarantine, Dave’s faith journey, and the good news of the Gospel for our time.
  9. In this chapter's "bonus" episode, both Debi and Producer Dan talk with a guest from Chapter One of this Season, R. J. Grunewald. R.J. is writing a book about those who have left the church for one reason or another, and are, as he puts it, "left for dead." We discuss R.J.'s research and how we might talk about the faith and the church for those who think they've had enough.
  10. In this episode, you hear one of the more dramatic and exciting stories we found. Michael is someone who has indeed left the church, but only for a season, and now is the pastor of a church in Louisiana that is especially sensitive to the plight of those who think they have nowhere left to go. Despite a ministry and church that is flourishing, sometimes Michael feels as if the message might be "too good to be true" and other times feels the loneliness of one trying to stand up for the lost.
