I just found this podcast via Emergent Village. It’s quite challenging and sometimes confronting, even though it seems like it’s recorded on a phone line. The current episode features a three-way interview with Brian McLaren, Phyllis Tickle and Bishop John Shelby Spong. The major discussion topic is where Christianity has seen change in the lifetime of these three and where they see hope for the future. The discussion takes a side track speaking about atonement and the reason for Jesus’ death which, of course, Bishop Spong enjoys speaking his (rather controversial to Evangelicals) views rather than listening to the other two. I think Bishop Spong talks too much but has some fascinating perspectives– and some things I just can’t agree with. Have a listen via iTunes or on the Nick & Josh website.
