The Crisis of Christianity: A Conversation with Sarah Posner

April 17th, 2012 | 1 min read

By Matthew Lee Anderson

I've been remiss in posting this, as last week's travels kept me busier than I'd hoped.

But last Monday I had the opportunity to tape an incredibly fun dialogue with Sarah Posner that started with Andrew Sullivan's now infamous essay on Christianity's crisis and eventually became me trying to make sense of evangelicalism from a younger standpoint.

I've been reading Sarah's work over at Religion Dispatches over the past couple years and have always found it interesting.  Especially when we disagree, which happens to be relatively often.   But she's always interesting and has always done her homework, which makes her an enjoyable and instructive interlocutor.

Let me know what you think in the comments.
