Ross Douthat has written a spirited, sharp and at times truly elegant defense of orthodox Christianity from its heretics on right and left. Bad Religion: How We Became A Nation Of Heretics just got published and you can buy it here. On Monday, Ross and I sat down for a long conversation about the book and the many issues it raises. We’re going to run the whole interview as a podcast and YouTube soon, but it’s well over an hour long, so we’ve made three short clips to give you a flavor of the whole thing this week. We start with a provocative question, to which Ross gives a disarmingly honest answer.
I’m thinking of doing extended interviews as a future element in the Dish’s menu – so your feedback is even more welcome than usual.
