People Are Strange, but God Is Stranger
Rod and Kale are joined by Paul Vanderklay, pastor and YouTuber, to discuss Rod’s latest project on Enchantment.
Rod starts off with his story of Saint Galgano and the sword in the stone as a way of laying out his new project. These fantastic stories are the living testimony of the very strange God and the stories of those men and women called to bear witness. In Modernity, we have lost our ability to see fully and as a result we live in the disenchanted world that delimits and occludes the spirit. Any move towards re-enchantment must somehow include the enlightenment, and thinkers like Iain McGilchrist provide us a path back. In part, the recognition that “the whole story” or the “subtraction story” of Charles Taylor is, too, a myth.
They talk about Jordan Peterson as “the unauthorized exorcist of the Gospel of Mark”, Charles Taylor, Tonya Luhrman, Blaise Pascal, Sam Harris, Dallas Willard, Michel Houellebecq, BJ Campbell, Steve Skojec, and others.
