Josh Swanson interprets Rollins’s thoughts on Christianity, religion, and the Church with clarity—although the complexity of the author’s academic style requires more than one listen to this work. Beginning with a discussion of the Crucifixion, Swanson uses a steady, purposeful tone to ask a series of questions, including: What might faith beyond religion look like? Is there a relationship between service to those less fortunate and hypocrisy? The latter discussion includes doubts about Mother Teresa’s service. Rollins’s reflections on the Crucifixion, the Resurrection, life’s meaninglessness, and God as a “psychological crutch” are portrayed with steadiness and skill. The supporting references to Nietzsche’s and Kierkegaard’s philosophies are conveyed with pauses for clarity. The audio is complex and difficult to understand yet challenging and provocative.
