In this finale episode, I ask bestselling author Keith Giles some of the questions that I've heard most often from folks who are deconstructing. Why did Jesus have to die? What happened on the cross? What do I do with the resurrection? Where did this monster version of God come from? What does it mean to be born again? And many other questions. Near the end of the conversation, Keith turned the tables and asked me a few questions about my experiences creating The Messy Spirituality Podcast and what it feels like here at the end of that journey. Keith Giles is a former pastor who left the pulpit to follow Jesus. He is the author of the bestselling "Jesus Un" series which includes: "Jesus Untangled", "Jesus Unbound", "Jesus Unveiled", "Jesus Undefeated", "Jesus Unexpected", and his latest release- "Jesus Unforsaken". Keith is also an insightful teacher, podcaster, and Patheos contributor. You can purchase your copy of Keith's brand new book, "Jesus Unforsaken: Substituting Divine Wrath With Unrelenting Love" here. Get more info on Keith's incredible online course offerings by visiting BK2SQ1. Check out Keith's Patheos blog here. Keith is a co-host of both The Heretic Happy Hour Podcast and The Peace Catalyst Podcast. Thanks so much for all of your love and support over the last two years. I have loved having all of you with me on this journey. Reminder-please don't unsubscribe from the podcast feed on your podcast platform of choice because I plan to release occasional bonus episodes as issues arise that I want to process through conversation.
