Episode 225: Mark Charles – “Why I Am Still a Christian.”

This week, we have invited Mark Charles to the Antioch Podcast as part of our series “Why I Am Still A Christian” to talk about why he is still a Christian as a Native American person who is an expert on the impact of Christian theology on the Indigenous people of the Americas. Mark is a journalist and co-author of Unsettling Truths: The Ongoing Dehumanizing Legacy of the Doctrine of Discovery along with Soong Chan-Rah. He was an independent candidate for President of the United States in 2020 and a public theologian speaking on topics pertaining to Native American issues, racial justice and other social issues. His theological insights and ideas push Christians to reconsider things they are comfortable with to take a second look at what scripture really says. It is because of these thoughts that Mark is a regular guest on the Antioch Podcast – sharing his ongoing theological questions with us. This is the reason that we invite him back again and again as he processes with us the questions that give him pause.
