Helping you answer Progressive Christianity and skeptical claims against the gospel from a biblical worldview

#200 When a Best-Selling Book Makes You a Slave to Your Passions, with Melissa Dougherty
byAlisa Childers

Untamed is a very popular (and trendy) book written by Glennon Doyle that has enchanted millions of people. Published in 2020, it’s a memoir of Glennon Doyle. One reviewer describes the book in this way: “This testament to female empowerment and self-love, with an endearing coming-out story at the center, will delight readers.” The scary patriarchy. Radical feminism. White supremacy. Oppressed by religion. Not to mention the Progressive/New Age spirituality scattered throughout the book. With a book so relevant and popular, not just culturally but spiritually, I had to invite my friend Melissa Dougherty to chime in with her thoughts as we discuss this influential work.
