Mike McHargue aka Science Mike drops in to discuss Finding God in the Waves: How I Left My Faith and Found It Again Through Science
. You know Mike from The Liturgists Podcast and of course his own show, Ask Science Mike. Though Jameson wouldn't allow Ryan to read Mike's book before the interview, Godspeed will no doubt be referencing Science Mike pretty much from here on out. Can science and faith ever fully integrate? Why have we viewed them as enemies for so long? Are supernatural experiences worth a darn? Tune in as you can hear Jameson and Ryan literally becoming smarter by proximity. Huge thank you to Science Mike and as always please send any questions/comments/concerns/misguided vitriol to email@example.com

The one and only Rob Bell stops by Godspeed to discuss his new book What is the Bible? How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything. Bell's writings have played a pivotal role in your hosts' lives, provoking questions, inspiring peace and calming thoughts of doubts. Always a lightening rod for controversy, Bell is simply asking the right questions in a time where ambition for growth is paramount to religiosity and rules. We can't recommend Bell's books enough. Agree or not, Rob Bell is one of the most influential and creative voices today.
