Episode 21: “The Empire Strikes Back?”

January 15, 2017

In Episode 21 of the Brew Theology Podcast, Ryan and friends - Meghan, Dan & Shoshana - brew up an episode about God and Empire. (Liz makes an appearance toward the end too) Dan Rosado provided these brewtastic notes a while back for our Denver community, and we are just now recording our thoughts on it for your dialogical pleasure.

Egypt

Assyria

Babylon

Persia 

Greece

Rome

Constantinople

Britain... 

It would seem as if the history of Empire is the history of human civilization, violence, and conquest... (Resources cited, below) Enjoy this episode. Give us a rating on iTunes (5 star is always nice!) and write a 'lil brewtastic review. Thanks in advance.
