Podcast: Silence, with Brett McCracken

Mere FidelityOn this week’s episode of Mere Fidelity, Matt and I are joined by Brett McCracken for a discussion of Martin Scorsese’s new film, Silence, which Brett reviewed for Christianity Today.  The film, an adaptation of Shusaku Endo’s famous novel of the same name, explores difficult and challenging themes and raises unsettling questions for the Christian viewer. Our conversation, which is packed with spoilers, seeks to excavate some of the film’s message and to grapple towards an assessment and response.
