Our friend Geoff Holsclaw joins us to chat about the intersection of neuroscience and discipleship. We zero in on Attachment Theory as a helpful tool to assess our relationships with God and others. Our ability to love God and love others is greatly enhanced by secure attachments, and a sober reckoning of our dominant (insecure) attachment styles.
Geoff and his wife Cyd are the the Families and Youth Pastors at Vineyard North in Grand Rapids, MI. Geoff also participates in regional and national movements of missional churches through Ecclesia Network and Missio Alliance. His interests in theology are the intersection of worship, politics, and theology. Geoff is hoping to produce short introductions to the traditional themes of theology from the perspective of God’s mission in the world.
Geoff has published several articles on theology, political theology, and political philosophy, has co-authored popular books in Does God Really Like Me? Discovering the God Who Wants to Be With Us and Prodigal Christianity: 10 Signposts into the Missional Frontier and the academic Transcending Subjects: Augustine, Hegel, and Theology.
