Episode 115: Talking Sacred Words and "Honk If You Love Jesus" Stickers with Jonathan Merritt!

Episode 115: Talking Sacred Words and "Honk If You Love Jesus" Stickers with Jonathan Merritt!
In this Episode, David and Ben have a very compelling conversation with award-winning religion and culture writer, Jonathan Merritt who has published thousands of articles in outlets such as USA Today, Buzzfeed, The Washington Post, and the New York Times
They discuss his new book “Learning to Speak God from Scratch: Why Sacred Words Are Vanishing--and How We Can Revive Them.”
In the book, he writes:
“In order to speak God from scratch we begin with what we have accepted, then we break it down, challenging our preconceptions, finally we build it up again in a way that is More helpful, richer, and more beautiful.”
The guys discuss the benefits and dangers of re-imaging sacred words. They ask: how can we speak God in a way that’s relevant to secular culture while still staying grounded in biblical truth?
