In this episode Ray is joined once again by Dr. Richard Beck for a discussion of his “Slavery of Death” blog series which you can find at Richard’s blog, Experimental Theology. This is the second of a three part series surrounding the material covered in the “Slavery of Death” series. In this second part, Richard and Ray talk about the work of Ernest Becker in understanding how our culture tries to insulate itself from the fear of death. Could it be that our entire culture is constructed to distract us from and offer us meaning in the face of death? Make sure to join us for all three parts of this series and visit Experimental Theology where you will find the “Slavery of Death” series, and a lot more theological goodness! Check out Richards book Unclean for some great meditations on purity, hospitality, and mortality. Thanks Richard for taking the time to join us for these conversations!
