The End of Our Exploring by Matt Lee Anderson

Click to check it out on Amazon!

The StoryMen welcome author and blogger Matt Lee Anderson of Mere Orthodoxy to discuss what it looks like to ask good questions. Matt explores that topic in his new book, The End of Our Exploring, so he tells us about how the idea for this book came to him, what the current Evangelical obsession with doubt and questioning might really be about, and just how healthy it is. Listen as we all become a little self-conscious about our own questions (which let’s face it: is probably for the best!).

What’s your favorite question from Pop Culture?

  • Nice talk, I liked that. Very interesting topic.

    I like the way you guys chat a bit first and then get into the guest interview. That makes me happy. And also explaining what’s a Creed, that was nice.

    I am generally filled with questions, but I don’t have any right now. On a podcast about questions. It’s disgraceful. But anyway, you are spared from the Michelle questions today! 🙂

  • Luke James Harrison

    The question I struggle with the most is that of human suffering. I get the argument of free will allowing us to choose evil, but it strikes me that God has created us as limited beings and that he could limit us further without taking away our ability to choose. I guess I’m asking why some people have to suffer to the extent that they do?

    Another great episode, keep them coming.

    P.S. In the previous episode I was amused by Clay’s idiosyncratic pronunciation of Samuel Pepys surname. It’s actually pronounced Peeps.
