the Misfit Faith podcast - Episode 19: The Economics of Gratitude (with Diana Butler Bass)

April 9, 2018

In this episode of Misfit Faith I offer a brief reflection on the degree to which many tend to understand the Christian life according to an “economic model” (which basically means it’s all one big eternal quid pro quo where we scratch God’s back by being good and he scratches ours by admitting us into heaven). I chat with author and historian Diana Butler Bass about her new book, Gratitude, after which I get a call from a U2 fan. I end the episode by pointing out how lame kids are these days.
