Featured Podcast: Steve Brown Etc.

  • 8 February 2016: Lessons in Belonging – Erin Lane – “The thing I am most desperate to keep you from finding out about me is… I want to belong, but I don’t know how.” In that confession, Erin Lane gives voice to the longing of every human heart. We all know that it can be brutally hard to find a sense of belonging, especially at church, but what do we do with this deep desire that is so often denied? Join Erin S. Lane on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of her book, Lessons in Belonging from a Church-Going Commitment Phobe. Whether you’re a millennial who expresses her relationship to church with the word “none,” or a pastor wondering where everyone went, don’t miss this one. Erin Lane works for the Seattle-based nonprofit Center for Courage & Renewal as an assistant program director for clergy and congregational leader programs. She has a master of theological studies degree from Duke and is coeditor of Talking Taboo. Connect with Erin at ErinSLane.com. 
  • 1 February 2016: Law, Gospel… and Movies – Dave Zahl – It’s a real problem when Dave Zahl from Mockingbird agrees to be on your talk show: he’s so enjoyable to talk to about so many things. Steve wanted to talk about law and gospel. The rest of the crew wanted to talk about movies. We tried to do both, but… well, take a listen for yourself. (Like C-3PO said, “Let the Wookiee win.”) Join Dave Zahl on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of the Mockingbird books Law and Gospel: A Theology for Sinners (and Saints) and Mockingbird at the Movies. It’s mostly theology talk with a segment on movies thrown in, but it’s all freeing and fun. Dave Zahl is the director of Mockingbird Ministries and editor-in-chief of the Mockingbird blog. Don’t miss the 9th annual Mockingbird conference, April 14-16 in New York City. Click here for details.
  • 25 January 2016: Awe – Paul Tripp – Most Christians think our biggest problem is with keeping God’s Law. If we could just follow the rules, God would be happy with us and our lives would be blessed. I mean, what would Jesus do? But Paul Tripp says we don’t have a Law problem, we have an awe problem. Join Paul Tripp on Steve Brown, Etc. for a quite deliberate discussion of his new book Awe: Why It Matters for Everything We Think, Say, and Do. You’ll see that nothing makes us stand in awe like God’s unconditional love for the unlovely. Paul Tripp is a pastor, best-selling author, popular speaker, and the president of Paul Tripp Ministries. Connect with him at PaulTripp.com.
  • 18 January 2016: A Family Apart – Craig A. Steffen – Craig Steffen knew his mother abandoned him and disappeared in the family car never to be seen again. He knew his father was gone too. He knew he was adopted. But he didn’t know much more until his adoptive parents died and, for the first time, he felt free to dig into his family’s past. Join Craig on Steve Brown, Etc. as he talks about uncovering tragedy, injustice, and murder in his personal history, and how finding his identity as a beloved son of God has helped him to heal. Craig Steffen is an entrepreneur, educator, and the author of A Family Apart: Sleuthing the Mysteries of Abandonment, Adoption and DNA.
  • 11 January 2016: Christ Hold Fast – Elyse Fitzpatrick & Dan Price – You’ve probably played a game of telephone before. Start with a room full of people. One person whispers a message to the next, and so on, until the last person announces the message to the group. Often, things have been lost and distorted along the way. You ever wonder if something like that has happened to the good news of Jesus? Join Elyse Fitzpatrick and Daniel Emery Price from ChristHoldFast.org on Steve Brown, Etc. for some freeing gospel clarity. Then join them, Steve Brown, and a bunch of radical gracers at the Christ Hold Fast Conference for more! Elyse Fitzpatrick is a popular speaker and author of a bunch of books, including the soon-to-be-released Home: How Heaven and the New Earth Satisfy Our Deepest Longing. Dan Price is the head honcho at Christ Hold Fast, a pastor, and the author of the upcoming book Scandalous Stories: A Sort-Of Commentary on Parables.
  • 4 January 2016: You’re Gonna Suffer… Happy New Year! – What’s up with all the heavy stuff in Key Life’s top 10 posts from 2015? Well, the truth is that our sin and suffering open the door to a realization of God’s unconditional love. It sucks, but it’s true. Let’s talk. Join the crew from Steve Brown, Etc.* for a program that’s two parts navel gazing, three parts self-promotion, and the rest of the parts an honest reflection on grief, pain, and God’s radical grace. *This would have been the first Steve Brown, Etc. of 2016, but Steve went on vacation. That means this is just Etcetera: Erik, Cathy, Justin, Zach… and maybe Sally Lloyd-Jones.
  • 28 December 2015: Who Was Adam? – Dr. Fazale Rana – Who was Adam? Your answer to that question will determine how you answer the next one: Who are you? Join biochemist Dr. Fazale Rana from Reasons to Believe (RTB) on Steve Brown, Etc. as we discuss RTB’s scientifically testable creation model for human origins. Can genetics and paleoanthropology give us hope that we’re actually beloved children of God instead of cosmic accidents? Along with astrophysicist Dr. Hugh Ross, Dr. Fazale (Fuz) Rana is the co-author of Who Was Adam?: A Creation Model Approach to the Origin of Humanity. He writes and speaks extensively about the evidence for creation emerging from biochemistry, genetics, human origins, and synthetic biology. As vice president of research and apologetics at RTB, Fuz is dedicated to communicating to skeptics and believers alike the powerful scientific case for God’s existence and the Bible’s reliability.
  • 21 December 2015: SBE Christmas Special – Are your Christmas traditions becoming a burden? It happens. What starts out as a life-giving reminder of God’s love can easily become yet another item on a long Christmas to-do list. Check it off and you’re one step closer to getting it all over with. There is another way. Join Steve and the crew as they talk about the love, joy, peace, and hope that comes from chucking traditions and following the fresh wind of the Christmas Spirit. From everyone here at Key Life Network and Steve Brown, Etc., Merry Christmas!
  • 14 December 2015: People to Be Loved – Preston Sprinkle – The deepest message of the Bible is God’s unconditional love for sinners and sufferers. It’s all about radical grace. But how do we reconcile that with the Bible’s prohibition of homosexuality? Join Dr. Preston Sprinkle on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of his new book, People to Be Loved: Why Homosexuality Is Not Just an Issue. Scripture challenges everyone to humbly accept what it has to say about how we love one another in light of God’s love for us. Preston Sprinkle earned his PhD in New Testament from Aberdeen University in Scotland. He’s the Vice President for Eternity Bible College’s Boise campus and the author of numerous books including the New York Times best-seller Erasing Hell, which he co-wrote with Francis Chan.
  • 7 December 2015: The Reckless Love of God – Alex Early (Re-Air) – “Jesus loves you.” We’ve heard it so often that the radical truth of that simple statement has lost its power. God’s startling love has been reduced to a bumper sticker. Alex Early is here to help. Don’t miss Alex on Steve Brown, Etc. talking about his new book, The Reckless Love of God: Experiencing the Personal, Passionate Heart of the Gospel.

  • 30 November 2015: Our Favorite Lib – Tony Campolo – Around here, Tony Campolo is affectionately known as Our Favorite Lib. He and Steve are on opposite ends of the political spectrum, but the differences these old friends have fade away when they start talking about Jesus.  Join Tony on Steve Brown, Etc. as he and Steve talk about Jesus as much as possible while they discuss Syrian refugees, Middle East policy, and the difference Christian service can make in the world. Truth be told, the Jesus stuff is the best part… that and watching Steve try to avoid talking about Tony’s new views on gay marriage.

  • 23 November 2015: Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome – Reba Riley – By the age of 29, Reba Riley lost her faith, her church, and her health. Bad religion messed her up real good.

  • 9 November 2015: Like Father, Like Son – Pete Alwinson – Jesus taught us to call God “Our Father…” But what kind of father is he? The answer to that question isn’t just about who God is. It’s about who we are too. Join Pete Alwinson on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of his new book, Like Father, Like Son: How Knowing God as Father Changes Men.

Caleb grew up going to gay pride events and seeing the hatred of extremist Christians directed at his family. Then, at the age of 16, Caleb joined the “enemy.” He became a Christian… and ultimately a pastor.

  • 5 October 2015: It’s Not What You Think – Jeff Bethke – Too often, Christianity is presented as simply a way to escape the fires of hell, but Jesus wasn’t selling fire insurance.  Join Jeff Bethke on Steve Brown, Etc. as he talks with Steve and the crew about his new book, It’s Not What You Think: Why Christianity Is About So Much More Than Going to Heaven When You Die.  Jeff is a popular YouTuber and the author of the New York Times bestseller Jesus > Religion.

  • 14 September 2015: The Reckless Love of God – Alex Early – “Jesus loves you.” We’ve heard it so often that the radical truth of that simple statement has lost its power.

  • 12 September 2015: Key Life on N.T. Wright – N.T. Wright is a controversial New Testament scholar, so we weren’t surprised when the negative comments started coming in after our interview with Dr. Wright on Steve Brown, Etc. Steve’s usual response to criticism is, “Thank you for your comments. You may be right… but you’re probably wrong.” Generally, we leave it at that. However, Key Life exists to communicate that the deepest message of the ministry of Jesus and the Bible is the radical grace of God to sinners and sufferers. When it comes to the doctrine of justification, we don’t mess around, and much of the controversy surrounding N.T. Wright has to do with justification. So, we invited our own New Testament scholar and friend, Dr. Reggie Kidd, to sit down with Steve and the crew to address what Dr. Wright had to say on our talk show. Take a listen as we dive into the controversy and clarify any misunderstanding that may have been stirred up.
  • 8 September 2015: The Challenge of Jesus – Full Interview with N.T. Wright – When N.T. Wright appeared on Steve Brown, Etc. to discuss his book, The Challenge of Jesus, big chunks of the interview didn’t air due to time constraints. That was a bummer. How often do you get to sit down with the world’s preeminent New Testament scholar and ask anything you want? But now we’re making the entire conversation available at no additional charge to you. In addition to conversation about justification and the historicity of Jesus, hear Dr. Wright answer questions about the Kingdom of God and how it relates to gay marriage, Reconstructionism and Dominion Theology, the mission of the Church, imagining the new creation, and more. N.T. Wright is the former Bishop of Durham in the Church of England. He taught New Testament studies at Cambridge, McGill and Oxford Universities. Dr. Wright currently serves as Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.   Don’t miss our follow-up to this interview with Dr. Reggie Kidd.
