‘Jordan Peterson, God, & Christianity,’ with Dr. Christopher Kaczor

Dr. Christopher Kaczor joins Matt and Alastair to discuss the Jordan B. Peterson phenomenon.

Matt and Alastair join the discussion, bringing a particular emphasis to how Peterson reads Scripture and what Christians can learn from his approach.
