WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

My guest for The Happy Hour #403 is Rebecca McLaughlin. Rebecca McLaughlin holds a Ph.D. from Cambridge University and a theology degree from Oak Hill College. Her first book, “Confronting Christianity: 12 Hard Questions for the World’s Largest Religion” was named Christianity Today’s 2020 Book of the Year!

Friends, I have been waiting to talk to Rebecca since I finished her book in January, and this conversation truly could have been over 3 hours long – there’s just so much to talk about! In this episode, we talk a lot about her book Confronting Christianity and how some parts of it wrestle with difficult history and topics. Rebecca also heavily dives into conversations about LGBTQ+, and how it is an area that many Christians choose to bury their heads in the sand with. She talks about her own experience with same-sex attraction and how she reconciles her devotion to Christ with a desire she never asked for. It is SO important to have safe communities to talk about the deep parts of our lives and the things we’re facing on a daily basis. I love when Rebecca says “One of Satan’s greatest tools against any of us is to make us feel like our particular temptation is one we can’t talk to our friends about.” There is so much more we could have talked about, but this episode is absolutely packed with helpful, truthful and loving ways to both honor Christ and love our neighbors.
