On this episode of the First Things Podcast, Associate editor Julia Yost talks to junior fellows Veery Huleatt and Connor Grubaugh about The Shack—the bestselling novel by William Paul Young, now a major feature film. In it, a bereaved father finds his way back to faith. But an unorthodox vision of the Holy Trinity compels us to discuss: Is it best to imagine the triune godhead according to biblical tradition, or according to personal taste? Then, Julia talks to assistant editor Alexi Sargeant and journalist Leah Libresco Sargeant about Logan, the newest installment in Marvel’s Wolverine franchise. Themes of faith and fatherhood animate this film, in which we observe the maturation of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, and of the superhero genre.
