Episode Info:

Catholic theologian and priest, James Alison joins us on the show to discuss scapegoating. It's a word we're all familiar with, but as James explains, it's through the violence of the scapegoating mechanism that civilisations are built. And, it is through the scapegoating mechanism that the cross heals. It's a fascinating way of understanding the atonement, especially for those of us disillusioned with models of atonement that require a violent God. So tune in for a truly mind bending and inspiring conversation.

Nomad can only keep going because a small group of faithful listeners help us pay the bills. Our donors gain access to the Nomad community, which manifests in such ways as Nomad Book Club, The Beloved Listener Lounge, Nomad Contemplations and Nomad Devotionals. And you may find yourself the proud owner of a Beloved Listener mug! Head over to our Patreon page for more information.

If you're not fussed about the bonus content, you can make a one-off or regular donation through PayPal, the links to which you can find on our support page.

And if you're looking for other people to share this journey with, then register on our Listener Map, and see if any other nomads are in your area.
