  • Can evangelicalism survive the departure of Tim Keller?

In a departure from the norm, this episode is not all three hosts ranting about whatever they dang well please. Instead you will get to hear a free chapter from Barnabas Piper's new book, The Curious Christian: How Discovering Wonder Enriches Every Part of Life. Barnabas did the reading himself, and while he's no Jon Hamm or Morgan Freeman he did ok. 

 

Christian Audio, who produced the audiobook, has partnered with us to make this available for your listening enjoyment AND to give a special offer. Through the end of March if you can get The Curious Christian audiobook for 50% off through ChristianAudio.com. Just use the code HAPPYRANT at checkout and you will be spending less (under $7) than you would to get full at Chick fil A.
