Yesterday Mark, Sam, and I recorded the penultimate episode of this season of The Pietist Schoolman Podcast, on preaching, listening, and (somehow) Donald Trump. It’ll go up on Thursday, but in the meantime I want to go ahead and start soliciting comments for our season finale, which we’ll record next Monday.
If you’ve been listening, you know that Mark and I are using these podcasts as a way to think through the book we’ll be writing this summer and fall, entitled Hope for Better Times: Pietism and the Future of Christianity. We hoped not only to start building an audience for the book, but to get some feedback from future readers even before writing begins in earnest.
To this point, we’ve had plenty of listeners — but not a whole lot of responses. So we’re planning for our finale to serve as a last chance for you all to share your opinion. We’ll have a few closing thoughts of our own, but primarily, we want to share listener feedback!
So whether you’ve listened to the entire season or just an episode here or there, please take a couple minutes to respond to one or more of the following questions:
- What’s been your chief takeaway from this season?
- What aspect of the Pietist ethos most strongly resonates with you?
- Which tension inherent to Pietism worries you the most?
- Which of our six “proposals” seems most promising?
- What have we missed?
You can leave comments here, at our Facebook page, or by emailing me. We’re happy to name you or leave the comment anonymous, as you prefer. Just make sure you respond by Monday morning so that we have time to incorporate your comments into our afternoon recording session.
Looking forward to hearing what you think!
