Logan and Tyler discuss Ethan Hawke's 2015 book, Rules for a Knight, in which the author presents a series of meditative lessons on virtue and character.

Drawing from diverse philosophical and spiritual traditions, the guys explore the book's focus on timeless values of self-discipline, integrity, and the importance of a noble spirit. Dive in with us as we return to our now regularly scheduled chivalry hour!

Dust off your pip boy for this one, because we're diving into the world of Fallout! Gamer bros/cinephiles (telephiles?) Logan and Tyler review Amazon's treatment of the popular video game series in this spoilerific discussion. They talk about changes to the lore, the series' satirical treatment of stereotypical Americana, how the show treats innocence, who gets the blame for human evil in the post-apocalypse, and how that interacts with the biblical view of the fallenness of human nature.

The guys have lots of thoughts on this one, so buckle up for lively discussion!

The dynamic duo dives into the headlines for this episode, breaking down Richard Dawkins's viral interview and exploring the question of one of the culture's most forceful atheists identifying as a cultural Christian, and even going so far as to call it "fundamentally decent religion." What's up with that? Is this the weirdest timeline?

The guys discuss the impact of Christian art, even in the hearts of unbelievers, whether this even matters if they don't become Christians, and both the pros and cons of so-called "cultural Christianity."

Your original dynamic duo is back for a chat about the beloved Arthurian legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight! The guys break down the story, why they love it so much, and what the strange story structure is exploring about virtue in the context of Arthurian legend. Then they dig into the critically-acclaimed (but also controversial) film version by David Lowery that was released in 2019. Why are there so many changes, and how do they change the meaning of the story? And what's with the ending? Listen to the end for an interpretation of the film you might not have heard before.

Gene joins Logan and Tyler to talk about Dune Part 2! What does Frank Herbert's highly influential science fiction novel have to say about religion, demagogery, and Messiah figures? Is it anti-religious, anti-Christian, anti-Islam, or none of these? Is Paul the hero or the villain? The guys discuss all this and more in a very spoilery, wide-ranging conversation about the Dune universe.  

Note: When I say very spoilery, I mean VERY spoilery.

Mar 7, 2024

Logan and Tyler bring their experience as Bible teachers to this episode of the show, and talk about how the same instincts that make us lovers of stories can make us more effective at sharing the gospel. Why is so much of the Bible told in stories? How would you explain the story of the Bible if you only had one conversation? Is the common term "Bible story" problematic? The guys tackle these questions and more on this evangelism- and Bible-centric episode.

Do you have thoughts about this episode? We'd love to hear them! Email us at logan@wisedisciple.org or tyler@wisedisciple.org.

The guys return to the world of myth to do a deep dive on the question of Christians engaging with works of mythology. Do the stories of Homer, Virgil, and others which tell stories of gods and goddesses glorify idols? Should Christians dive into these stories, knowing that they were inspired by false gods? Why did early Christians like Justin Martyr and Augustine of Hippo find value in them? Listen to find out!

On return from a holiday hiatus/

These hosts two/

Delve into the forests of Sir Orpheus/

His trails prove/

A tale of love lost, of godly truth and beauty/

Virtue made plain/

But not alone of faeries does this story tell/

But the Christian story/

Finds voice among the echoes here, where myth gives way to truth.

--

Also, Logan bad at remembering song lyrics. How bad? Tune in to find out!
