In her new bestselling book, Shameless: A Sexual Reformation, Nadia Bolz-Weber, a foul-mouthed, irreverent, tattoo-covered pastor, posits that the traditional Christian view of sex has resulted in damaged souls who are mistreated, confused, angered, and/or wounded by the shaming sexual messages so prevalent in religion. Her thesis is that the Christian church for centuries has tried to control human sexuality and that a new sexual ethic is in order. This podcast discussion unpacks Bolz-Weber’s view of sexuality, the Bible, abortion, and much more.
