In this first of a two-part episode, Ray talks with Michael Hardin (executive director of and author of The Jesus-Driven Life) about Mimetic Theory and reading the Bible through the lens of Jesus. Rene Girard, developer of the Mimetic Theory, has said that Michael is “a gifted and effective advocate who is able to make the Mimetic Theory and its application clear and understandable”.  In this episode Michael explains the Mimetic Theory and helps us understand it’s significance for believers in Jesus.
