The StoryMen welcome author and podcaster Matt Mikalatos to the show to discuss his new book Into the Fray. A sequel to The First Time We Saw Him, Matt reimagines the book of Acts, setting the stories of the early church in a contemporary context. Matt shares what he learned writing the book, reads one of his favorite parts and we dream about what the Church can learn today.

What’s your experience with the book of Acts?

JR. welcomes fellow podcaster Megan Tietz of the Sorta Awesome Podcast to discuss the literary firestorm surrounding Harper Lee’s recently-published Harper Lee’s sequel/prequel to To Kill a Mockingbird. We dive into the complicated publication history, and spend a lot of time on the book’s controversial portrayal of beloved Atticus Finch. Along the way, we reflect on our own histories with the book, race and why this might be the perfect time for us to read the book.
