Happy Hour #357 - Dr. Tony Evans
Play • 27 min

My guest for The Happy Hour #357 is Dr. Tony Evans! Dr. Tony Evans is the founder and senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas. He just released a new book called U-Turns: Reversing the Consequences in Your Life.

Y’all. I don’t normally get nervous for interviews but I was SO excited to talk to Dr. Evans. He is truly such a wise leader and I’m honored he is joining me on the podcast today.In this episode, he talks about finding true rest and hope in the person of God rather than our own solutions, and what it looks like to align our life choices with the word of God. Dr. Evans also dives into what is going on in our world right now and the problem of attaching Jesus to our culture and agendas. It feels like there is just as much division in the church as there is in our nation and it can cause us to lose sight of the Kingdom by focusing on saving our culture. Dr. Evans dropped SO many truth bombs in this interview, but he really impacted me when he said “God is not going to skip the church house to fix the White House.”

How (Not) to Read the Bible with Dan Kimball
I started this podcast to create a safe space for exploring our faith, our beliefs and new ideas. Well, friends, this conversation with Dan Kimball delivers and I can’t wait for you to hear it! Dan is an author who focuses on encouraging us to think creatively about breaking the negative stereotypes both the church and Christians face. And our conversation today is inspired by his new book, How (Not) to Read the Bible: Making Sense of the Anti-women, Anti-science, Pro-violence, Pro-slavery and Other Crazy-Sounding Parts of Scripture. During our time together, we talk about the dangers of using Scripture out of context and what we can do when someone uses the Bible against us to discredit our beliefs. Dan also gives us a helpful lens to use when reconciling challenging parts of the Bible, especially violence and slavery, with our faith. And don’t worry, we wrap up the episode with some fun talking about why Scripture is anti-shrimp, how to get a donkey into a bathtub, and if there are really unicorns hiding out in the Bible. In this episode, Dan and I talk about: * The truth of God’s character and how we can learn from everything in the Bible, including themes of violence * How information is our strongest defense when it comes to safeguarding our faith, especially for younger generations * Seeing the Bible as a library instead of a science manual and how we can use it to inform our modern-day questions, but not necessarily answer them. Favorite quotes: 1. Most Christians are not prepared to address the not-so-nice sounding bible verses. We just have to be prepared. 2. We have to know how to read our bible, the good verses and the crazy sounding verses. 3. Never read a bible verse by itself. 4. The bible was written to other people. But it was written for us so we can understand who God is. 5. We have turned the bible into a science manual trying to get our modern day questions and that wasn’t its intent.
