This conversation was sparked off by Charlie’s newsletter for anaturalmethod.com. He is imagining how we can respond personally to what is happening and build community and live more healthily.

This is the second conversation with Dr. Lawrence Feingold and it follows my reading of his book on fundamental theology: Faith Comes From What is Heard - An Introduction to Fundamental Theology.
