I was honored to be interviewed by James Poulos, one of my favorite young conservative writers on his worthy show The Bottom Line for PJTV.

I struggle to understand 3/4 of what James says, but I struggle because I know every word is worth understanding.  It’s easy for me toss about superlatives, but James really is a guy to watch.

At any rate, probably not my best performance answering some of the questions.  But then, it was my first.  And if you’re interested in a teaser for what’s to come, register (for free!) at PJTV and let me know what you think.  It goes behind the paywall after Friday, so watch it soon.

(And check out the comments, too, for a taste of what else is to come.)

  2. ‘Secular idiot’ or ‘babe in Christ’, which is it, Matt? Best of luck engaging with people like some in that comment thread about your interview. Such ignorance.

  3. @Mr. Anderson: For me, the salient take-away of your interview concerned the need to find our primary orientation in God and not in our sexuality. Mere Orthodoxy readers should know that a new book is coming out on this topic: Jenell Williams Paris, The End of Sexual Identity: Why Sex Is Too Important to Define Who We Are (IVP, April 2011). In your book, do you start the debate evangelicals never had on the issue of contraception?

  4. @Benson, yes. They should also know that there’s another book coming out on the topic–Earthen Vessels: Breathing New Life into a Broken Faith. : )

    And no, I don’t.

    1. @Mr. Anderson: I’m guessing the readers of Mere Orthodoxy already know about your book. You may treat the topic of our sexual identity but it’s the focus of Paris’ entire book. :-) It’s unfortunate that you didn’t start the evangelical debate on contraception.

  5. Thanks, @prufock. I’m just hoping they don’t come and destroy Mere-O’s comments. : )

  6. I hope you saw my email – – You did a great job! I didn’t realize it was your first one, either. I passed the link around some of our staff and they thought it was excellent. I think the lead pastor may have purchased your book, actually… Well done, Matthew!
