Shaunti and Craig have written a book called Through a Man's Eyes.  Shaunti has a unique ability to communicate to women what men see, as in how difficult it is for them not to visualize sex with every woman they see.  Yes, perhaps that is an over generalization, but you get the point.

Since we have been asked 80 million times, we thought we would give a crack at discussing racism in America, Ferguson and our upbringing in the South in the 80's.  Being that we don't know much and are not well spoken, we thought we would bring in a guest who has a lot of interest in the subject.  Jake Dockter is a writer and has a blog called Theology of Ferguson.

Jeremy makes a great addition to the show for two reasons.  One, because he has great rapport with the guys since being on tour with them and two, because he has some really heavy and troubling stuff going on in his head and he talks very openly about it.  Marriage, addiction, anxiety, depression, fear, failure and being a pastors kid all play into what he is dealing with and writing about on the new Abandon Kansas album.
