Peter Rollins, The Idolatry of God (Encore) January 16-22

This week I speak with “pyro-theologian” Peter Rollins.   This is an encore presentation of one of the two or three most popular interviews on Religion For Life.   Among many things we discuss is “divine doubt” and letting go of the need for God to solve our problems.  His latest book is called The Idolatry of God:  Breaking Our Addiction to Certainty and Satisfaction.

“He explores how the Good News actually involves embracing the idea that we can’t be whole, that life is difficult, and that we are in the dark. Arguing that God has traditionally been approached as a product that will render us complete, remove our suffering and reveal the answers, he introduces an incendiary approach to faith that invites us to embrace our brokenness, face our unknowing and accept the difficulties of existence. Only then, he argues, can we truly rob death of its sting and enter into the fullness of life.”
