Ep 8 - Films for a Faith Crisis: Using Movies to Talk About Doubt

Updated: Jun 15, 2022

A faith crisis can be a difficult experience to talk about with your family or friends, especially if they haven't experienced one. Using Chris Wei's essay from Mormonism and the Movies, we use popular movies to describe three approaches to a faith crisis and weigh the positive and negative aspects of each. We're biased, but this may be our best episode yet!

Liz - This is the Gospel (podcast by LDS Living)

Carl - Outlander book series by Diana Gabaldon (sexual content warning)
