C. Derick Varn joins the show once again for another in our series about the films of Andrei Tarkovsky. This week, we discuss the Russian filmmaker's seminal Italian language film 'Nostalghia.' How does 1 plus 1 equal 1? Lots to unpack in this one.
In this episode, Danny is joined by Dr. Robert Erlewine to discuss his new collection of writings by the great 20th Century Jewish theologian Abraham Joshua Heschel, recently published by Plough Books. Learn about Heschel's contribution to how we think about God, and about how he synthesized a conservative theology with a radical, engaged politics, befriending and influencing major religious figures like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Reinhold Neibuhr. Erlewine makes a compelling case for why Heschel is fantastically relevant to our contemporary world.
