Thinking Religion: Everybody Should Be Listening to Jodi Magness or The Buzzfeedification of Biblical Archaeology

What is the nature of religion’s role in the history of ideas? Should atheists or people of other faiths talk about a faith community in which they don’t participate?

And what does Stephen Colbert have to do with Lent?

Thomas Whitley and Sam Harrelson tackle these questions and many more in this week’s Thinking Religion.
