How Bread and Games are Robbing us of a Hunger for God

And why the next 12 months are the greater risk.

Podcast Host:

Chase Replogle

My name is Chase Replogle. I’m a pastor at Bent Oak Church, a freelance web designer, and a writer. This podcast is my journey to better understand the unique vocation of pastor and writer. It’s an attempt to “practice in public” what I’m learning about the process. I’ll do my best to be honest about the challenges and struggles of writing and hopefully, we can both learn along the way.

I've really been looking forward to this conversation. Eric Metaxas joined me to talk about his new book, Is Atheism Dead? The book is wide-ranging, impassioned, and, as with all of his books, well written. Great conversation about a great book.
