21 – Brian Zahnd – Bob Dylan and Church

Got to sit down with my pastor Brian Zahnd.  We talked about Bob Dylan, the church and the upcoming Water to Wine Gathering.  I feel satisfied that we barely mentioned penal substitutionary atonement or any complex theological topics.  I got to ask what I wanted and he answered how he wanted.
