Christianity As an Abstraction Misses the Resurrection – Peter Rollins in Monday’s Weekly Video

One must participate in the Insurrection in order to participate in the Resurrection, so asserts Peter Rollins.

This week’s “Weekly Video” is part 1 of Peter Rollins talk at Baylor University last year. Take some time to not only view part 1, but follow on to hear the full talk, I believe in four parts.
