According to William Willimon, Christianity is kind of like a foreign language that one is not born with, but must be baptized into. Unfortunately, many preachers today are attempting to “translate” the faith into familiar and comfortable terms that people are used to, but the result, he argues, is that things get “lost in translation.” William Willimon, author of Peculiar Speech: Preaching to the Baptized, joins the panel on this edition of the White Horse Inn.
