Bradley Jersak: Navigating the Perils and Possibilities of Deconstruction

Deconstruction: is it just a trendy brand name for falling away from belief in God? Or a process essential to authentic faith? Is it liberation or trauma? Prison break or exile? Well, Bradley Jersak joins us again to say… it's complicated (just like you!). We talk with Bradley about the themes of his latest book Out of the Embers: Faith After the Great Deconstructionwhich explores the necessity, perils, and possibilities of "The Great Deconstruction."
