Click here for the interview from earlier today.
Off the air, after the interview, I had to tell Andrew how David and I use the term "Foolish Mortal" a lot more now thanks to one of his songs.
Keep rockin' for Christ!

Former DC Talk member Kevin Max provided music at a conference at The North Church in Carrollton on Tuesday night. Since the night service was open to the public I went with a few friends from church. We were able to take some pictures of and with Kevin and I had a chance to talk with him. I saw on his Myspace page that he has a motorcycle, so we talked about our motorcycles. And of course I asked him about his experience playing the lead in the new movie “The Imposter”.
Remember we are going to see “The Imposter” for a station fundraiser on Sunday October 12. It will be at 7PM at “The Studio Movie Grill” in Lewisville. Tickets are $7 and you can RSVP weekdays between 9 and 5 by calling our office at 214-353-8970. More info: Get-Together page.

He openly admits that he did intend to set out in search of the weirdest, hardest-to-believe aspects of Christian culture. And while he is bombarded with Christian after Christian who are the stereotypical judgemental, close-minded 'freaks'...he does also encounter some Christians that he feels comfortable with, who help him to better understand what is going on inside the Christian bubble. Radosh travels all over the country attending seminars, concerts, meetings, conferences, wrestling matches, museum tours and of course, a live production of Bible Man. He points out the most ridiculous stuff (testamints anyone?) but also takes the time to embrace the aspects that are grace-filled and out of love. He speaks with Christian authors Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker. He spends time Jay Bakker. He visits ShoutFEST and Cornerstone Festival - where he learns a lot about the different types of Christians that exist in just the music world. He hangs out behind the scenes of a Christian Wresting match where some of the 'actors' are Christian while some aren't. Radosh even holds a completely made up interview with Stephen Baldwin, using passages from Baldwin's biography to respond to his questions. He browses the floor of a "Jesus Junk" Expo...where Jesus' face is plastered on all the silly stuff and marked $9.99. He certainly gets around and touches on a lot of areas that we, as Christians, are made fun of for. And some of it, rightly so.
There were times while reading this book that I completely agreed with Radosh. Yes, we DO look ridiculous having that type of stuff in our history and refusing to admit we are behind the times with this or that. But there were other times as well when I could feel my blood pressure beginning to rise, knowing that he just wasn't getting it. But then I'd have to remind myself that...at least he was TRYING to get a grasp of it. Not just dismissing it away as, oh, they're just a bunch of crazy Christians. This book is riddled with foul language and misunderstandings...of jumping to conclusions and assuming that all Christians are 'that way.' But there is a lot of insight in here as well, as to how non-Christians view believers in the every day world. It's eye-opening, to say the least, to hear straight from the horse's mouth how certain things we do get misconstrued and twisted to make us look like complete idiots. He brings it around in the end and speaks of how both sides could learn from each other...and that more people should pay attention to what's going on in the Christian bubble, 'cause they just might be missing out.
All in all, I'd say if you really want to know how those of us in this "Christian bubble" look from the outside, this is definitely a good read. If you'd rather not know, then...shy away.
