New Time Religion with Andrew Root
Andy’s Movie Club: Brad’s Status

Andy’s Movie Club: Brad’s Status

June 29, 2021

It's the middle of summer and who knows if we'll ever watch movies in the theater again.  But...we DO have another episode of Andy's Movie Club featuring a movie that you can stream at-home and watch along with us!

This time we're watching the Amazon original movie "Brad's Status" starring Ben Stiller.  If you're old like us you'll love it and identify with Brad and his mid-life crisis.  If you're under 35 you'll probably think Brad is a selfish jerk.  But still give it a shot!    

The movie is all about resonance, relationships, being vs. having, and finding the good life.  It's almost like Hartmut Rosa and Charles Taylor wrote the darn thing!

This summer Andy is also teaming up with Homebrewed Christianity's Tripp Fuller for an on-line pop-up learning community.  Check it out at:

And, as always, the listener hotline is still open.  Give us a call at 651-800-1089 and we might use your question in a future episode.

Sin in the Age of Authenticity

Sin in the Age of Authenticity

April 13, 2021

How does sin work in the Age of Authenticity?  And why are both grace and sin eclipsed in a secular age?  We dig into the listener mailbag this week to explore all that and more.  Huge shout-out to Zoe for the great question this week.

The Congregation in a Secular Age

The Congregation in a Secular Age

February 4, 2021

The trilogy is complete.  Andy's *brand new* book - the Congregation in a Secular Age - is out now.  It's book #3 in his Secular Age trilogy and, unlike other third installments of trilogies, features no Ewoks whatsoever.

Some of the themes are familiar to listeners of the pod, but we took a turn and got into some fascinating talk about ministry & the pandemic.

Cobra Kai & Taylor’s Triangle

Cobra Kai & Taylor’s Triangle

December 23, 2020

It's a karate episode for Christmas!

Dr. Andrew Root has been watching Cobra Kai lately and sees a big connection between the evil dojo & Charles Taylor's triangle of Humanism vs. Neo-Nietzscheanism vs. Transcendance. 

And, truth be told, this Taylor's triangle reaches far beyond Netflix 80s revival shows.  Join Andy & Derek as they hop on zoom for a socially distanced new episode.

As always the listener hotline is still open.  Give us a call at 651-800-1089 and we might use your question in a future episode.

What Do Pastors Do All Week?

What Do Pastors Do All Week?

November 16, 2020

What do pastors do all week?  In the world of the Immanent Frame - where the only thing that matters is what you can touch and see - this question doesn't have a great answer.

What does ministry look like in a secular world with the immanent frame?  How can waiting for God to act actually be the faithful response?  And where does Karl Barth fit in to all of this?

Find out as we socially distance on Andy's deck discussing this and more on this episode of New Time Religion.

Also - the listener hotline is still open.  Give us a call at 651-800-1089 and we might use your question months from now!

The Church Has Left the Building

The Church Has Left the Building

October 6, 2020

We dig into the mailbag again for a great question on the Church and buildings.  Do we need them?  And do we do when the local church closes down and becomes a Chili's?  Or a Boston Pizza if you're in Canada...

The Gift of Doing Less

The Gift of Doing Less

September 8, 2020

We've opened up the listener mailbag to answer a question about how to actually "do" the stuff Andy writes about in his books.

This leads Andy to reflect on how often, "doing stuff" is the problem.

Join us as we grill brats on the deck, discuss what German philosophers would think about Michael Jordan, and discover the gift of simply "being" in relationship.
