This episode of The Love Cast, Jamal interviews new Quoir Author Matt Distefano about his upbringing in a conservative religious environment and how this led to anxiety, fear, and ultimately to a season of atheism for him. Matt also describes how he was awakened to the reality of a benevolent, peaceful, and non-violent God.
On November 7th, Matt’s newest book titled: ‘From the Blood of Abel’ will be released via Quoir publishing. This book explores the roots of human violence and how this plays into mainline religious beliefs about a violent and retributive God. ‘From the Blood of Abel’ also beautifully describes how Jesus gave us a completely new view of God from a non-violent and benevolent perspective.
