Q&A

Karl Barth’s complicated home life, and single Christians considering adoption

In our latest episode tackling some questions from listeners, we begin by thinking about whether it should matter if influential theologians and Christian writers had personal moral failings, and whether we can separate out someone’s theological work from their own sins. Then we move on to a question from an unmarried listener who would like children and is wondering if adoption should be an open option for her.
