2021 Top Podcasts

December 16, 2021
As we wind down the year, iAt will take a look back at 2021, including the launch of our in All things podcast. Justin Bailey, our host, has guided valuable conversations about varied topics of faith, doubt, death, First Nations translations, art, trees, evangelicalism, and more. The following highlight some of the most popular podcasts.

Kristin Kobes Du Mez 


 with Kristin Kobes Du Mez, Justin Bailey, and Scott Culpepper

 What have we lost in our desire to win? And how has popular culture shaped our Christian identities? Pick up her book. Join this conversation, as Kristin states, “The reception of my work in my hometown has been varied but in many ways surprisingly positive. Grateful to delve into things … and talk about my faith formation, how my book applies to my own Reformed circles, & how it’s being received.” 


Matthew Kaemingk & Richard Mouw


with Justin Bailey, Matthew Kaemingk, and Richard Mouw

A conversation about some of the roots of the reformed tradition, unlikely stories, farmers, Karl Barth, corn, and chickens! Enjoy this conversation and check out Kaemingk’s book Reformed Public Theology.  


Tish Harrison Warren


with Tish Harrison Warren and Justin Bailey 

Recently winning Christianity Today’s Magazine “Beautiful Orthodoxy Book of the Year”, Prayer in the Night addresses the messages of waiting in the brokenness of life and embracing life-giving liturgies of faith in the midst of the wait. Pick up the book and enjoy this conversation with Tish.


Mako Fujimura


with Mako Fujimura and Justin Bailey

Non-representational Art. How does “Making” play a role in our religious life? Check out his book Art and Faith. Mako encourages a posture of generosity and explains a need to adjust our thinking from ‘transactional’ society of Modernity to a deep understanding of “a bias in the universe that is predicated towards love.” 


James Eglinton


with James Eglinton, Justin Bailey, and Gayle Doornbos 

Our theme question: what does it mean to live with a faith that is rooted in the past, yet responsive to the challenges and questions of the present?  Enjoy this conversation with Eglinton, a Herman Bavinck scholar, and conversations about current issues and reformed scholars, past and present. 

We hope you find this list helpful as you “expand your imagination for what the Christian life—and life of the mind—can accomplish.” Check out our entire series at our website. We’d love to have you weigh in!
