Violence, Protest, and Pumpkin Pie
In this week’s news roundup, host Mike Cosper and editor in chief Russell Moore wrestle with culture wars of a related kind, discussing the divisive responses to the recent mass shooting at Club Q in Colorado and the silent courage of Iranian sports figures against their domineering government. Listen in as Cosper and Moore lament the ideological tropes we cling to in the face of dehumanizing tragedy, and find hope in the stories of real life heroes whose courage exposes online virtue signaling for the hollow artifice that it is. News editor Daniel Silliman joins the conversation in a new feature called, “Hey, Daniel! What’s weird?” to discuss the history of pumpkin pie. Joining us this week: Daniel Silliman is a journalist and a historian. He is the news editor for Christianity Today, the author of a history of bestselling evangelical fiction, and teaches humanities at Milligan University. Daniel spent several years as a crime reporter outside Atlanta before pursuing higher education in Germany, earning a MA from Tübingen University and a doctoral degree from Heidelberg University. He has reported and edited news coverage for CT since 2019.

Maybe Babel Was Bad?
Brash election rhetoric seems to have grown boring (at least for now), but in the void of highly polarizing conversations, Christians still are looking for ways to define themselves. In this week’s news roundup, special guest Hannah Anderson joins host Mike Cosper and editor in chief Russell Moore for an election postmortem, including a discussion of how Donald Trump’s second bid for the presidency may or may not deepen already existing divisions in congregations. Considering the state of Sunday morning pews, Anderson, Cosper and Moore ask what the rise in nondenominational churches means for Christian witness and theology, a question that resonates further as the Respect for Marriage Act begins its legislative journey. Join the lively discussion around a core question: At the polls and in the pews, who are we now? Joining us this week: Hannah Anderson is an author and speaker who lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with her husband and three children. Her work explores themes of human flourishing with a particular focus on how ecology, gender, and socioeconomics affect spiritual formation. Besides being a regular contributor to Christianity Today, she has authored multiple books including All That’s Good: Recovering the Lost Art of Discernment and the recently released Heaven and Nature Sing.
