What Can We Learn from the Jordan Peterson Phenomenon? // Ask Pastor John with Alastair Roberts
Jordan Peterson has a bestselling book and a fast-growing following, especially among young men. What should Christians learn from him?
Today we have a guest with us who is going to talk about the Jordan Peterson phenomenon. Jordan Peterson has a video debate that has been viewed over 10 million times on YouTube. So who is Jordan Peterson? Where’d he come from? And what can we learn from this Jordan Peterson phenomenon taking the world by storm? To answer those questions, we’re releasing a special long-form APJ conversation today.
Our guest is Dr. Alastair J. Roberts. He’s a theologian in Durham, England, a podcaster on the Mere Fidelity podcast, and author of two books, one with Andrew Wilson, Echoes of Exodus: Tracing Themes of Redemption through Scripture (2018), and another one in process, titled Heirs Together: A Theology of the Sexes (forthcoming in 2019).
We began by asking him to explain the surge of interest around Jordan Peterson, and how it began in the first place.
