Podcast. The Rise & Fall of Mars Hill by Christianity Today. Places the church’s decline in a broad sociological context, excellent production quality. Central question—Why do people keep elevating charismatic leaders whose fame and lack of character is their undoing?
Related. Fav podcast host, Jack Hough, Barron’s Streetwise. Can’t get enough of his self deprecating sense of humor, smarts, and personality more generally.

Mars Hill = pathetic blind guides fallen into a ditch. Christianity Today = more blind guides talking about Mars Hill blind guides. All is vanity – all is meaningless. Hilarious if it were not so wretched.
