Episode 52 Dr. Peter Rollins on Uncertainty, Contradiction and Salvation

In this episode, Dr. Peter Rollins talks about the role of uncertainty, doubt, and contradiction in theology and life. He also reflects deeply on the death of God in Jesus Christ as the ultimate contradiction and the meaning of resurrection for understanding salvation. This is the conversation you've been waiting for as we do a deep dive into post-modern thinking about theology, psychoanalysis, and modern faith.

Peter gained his higher education from Queens University, Belfast where he earned degrees (with distinction) in Scholastic Philosophy (BA Hons), Political Theory and Social Criticism (MA) and Post-Structural thought (PhD). He was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, currently lives in Los Angeles and will die somewhere as yet not known.
