Today, theologian and author Kyle Strobel joins me to talk about the challenging topic of what true wisdom is, and Christianity in relation to the concept of power – and how this has been misunderstood and abused, and what Harry Potter can teach us about Jesus and Christ-like wisdom.
Kyle and his colleague Jamin Goggin have interviewed some of the oldest and wisest prominent Christian leaders and learned a lot about what true Christ-like wisdom is. We discuss how, in fact, the way of Jesus is about surrender, about giving up power, not claiming more and more.
Kyle and I also talk about the myth of Christian celebrity, and Kyle shares the powerful metaphor of Harry Potter, and how his story is a metaphor for this in many ways, and what the story of Harry Potter has to say to our own spiritual journeys.
This is a fascinating insight into important issues of Christian power, wisdom and surrender, many of which are rarely discussed today – and Kyle has great wisdom on the topic. Definitely worth a listen!
Kyle’s new book ‘The Way Of The Dragon Or The Way of the Lamb’, which explores this topic in much more depth, releases Jan 25.
