Is God Ashamed of Me? or, Have we misunderstood shame? (with Brad Vaughn)
New episode from the Embodied Faith Podcast
Serious question: Did Brené Brown miss something about shame? Is it always bad, or something good?
Does God save us from shame?
Or might God save us through shame?
If this sounds crazy, maybe it is because we thinking about shame in a Western cultural framework. Dr. Brad Vaughn (formerly known as Jackson Wu) talks about how honor and shame work in the Bible, and how that might help us read the scriptures and understand salvation.
Check out his new books, Seeking God's Face: Practical Reflections on Honor and Shame in Scripture, and The Cross in Context: Reconsidering Biblical Metaphors for Atonement.

(This podcast was recorded before Brad stopped using his pseudonym, which he explains here).
