Podcast Exclusive - Church: An (un)Necessary Evil?

In this episode Nick and Mike discuss a comment that came in to the Theology for the People blog claiming that church is only good for "becoming robotized, lobotomized, Romanized, and institutionalized," and is "pointless for knowing Jesus Christ personally." This comment represents a not-uncommon attitude to "organized religion" in general and church in particular.

This episode includes discussions about the Bible, Jesus, American history, and Henry David Thoreau.

The book recommended in this episode is The Bible in America: Essays in Cultural History
