Losing Our Religion: Beth Moore and Russell Moore in Conversation

Welcome to the first episode of the two-part Losing Our Religion special series finale! This episode and the one to follow were recorded at a special live event with Bible teacher and author Beth Moore and Russell Moore in Houston on August 9, 2023.

Beth and Russell gathered with hundreds in person and thousands online for a discussion of Russell’s new book, Losing Our Religion: An Altar Call for Evangelical America. They shared the story of their friendship and the similarities in their Southern Baptist upbringings. Beth asks Russell a series of “getting to know you” questions about his family of origin, marriage, children, and ministry. And they both speak to the loss and disruption of ultimately leaving the SBC and the ways their ministries have affected their families.

Tune in for thoughts on not giving up on people who are deconstructing, walking by faith, and honesty with God. Beth and Russell’s discussion covers shifts in evangelical Christianity, how politics is asked to bear a weight it cannot support, and our common desire for belonging.

Make sure you check out the next episode, which features Beth and Russell answering questions from the live audience!
