“Deconstruction” has become a popular term online over the past year to describe people who are rejecting certain Christian tenets and seeking other answers. Although the term is new, the phenomenon is not, and in today’s episode, Josiah DeGraaf, Daeus Lamb, Rose Sheffler, and Martin Detwiler discuss the importance of portraying doubting or “deconstructing” Christians in fiction.
