Podcast: DYING-Feature Conversation: J. Todd Billings

May 27, 2021

Our podcast episode 7 featuring J. Todd Billings is live HERE!

On this episode of the podcast, we talk with J. Todd Billings, a theologian and author, about his book The End of the Christian Life (Brazos, 2020). Our theme question: what does it mean to embrace our mortality? Among the topics we discuss:

  • On being immersed in the cancer community after a terminal cancer diagnosis
  • How Western culture works to obscure the reality of our mortality
  • How we can live in the tension between our smallness and the grand calling to make/change culture
  • On what a “good funeral” looks like and what the Christian hope actually is
  • How the Covid pandemic has brought our mortality (and denial) into sharper relief.
