About

Universities, seminaries, and divinity schools across the U.S. are in the midst of a recession of both interest and funding in areas like theology, philosophy and history. One likely cause is that the perceived pressures of present-day economic realities seem to make majoring in the humanities a financially irresponsible decision. 

Yet, people’s deep questions about God, life, philosophy, and how to find true meaning in our complicated world still remain. So while people may be less inclined to major in philosophy or go to seminary, the demand for education in these areas remain.

The way people today are attempting to educate themselves and find answers to their deepest questions isn’t the same as it was 10 years ago, and over the next 10 years it will only continue to evolve.


Instead of the traditional methods of education, many are turning to new avenues of education and media like Podcasts and Youtube to explore answers to their deepest questions.

These days, I work as full-time pastor, but for 11 years I taught theology and biblical studies courses in a traditional classroom setting.  I have an undergraduate degree in history from Michigan where I graduated with distinction, and a Master’s in Christian Thought from Bethel Seminary where I graduated with highest honors. I love wrestling with the big questions!


Right now, I see a deep need to help people who are turning to alternative methods of education find the right resources and engage in the right conversations, so I’m taking my knowledge and experiences out from the traditional classroom and into the new these new avenues of education.


 In 2018, I created I created Deep Talks: Exploring Theology and Meaning-Making, a podcast dedicated to exploring the interconnected nature of theology to all of the ways we search for meaning and purpose in life.The goals for this podcast (which is currently available in both an audio only and video format) and other digital content I’m working on in 2019 are:

- to foster nuanced, non-combative dialogue about theology and culture, science, the arts, entertainment, and philosophy within a broad, historic Christian perspective in a way that helps people answer their toughest questions and equips them to lovingly bless people in the diverse world they inhabit

- to provide free theological and philosophical education using some of the best resources and research used in top seminaries & graduate schools schools across the world and distill it down to a high school/undergrad level for students of life that might not be pursuing advanced degrees in these subjects

With so many people either disillusioned by the unsatisfying answers of our secular age or going through a phase of deconstruction and questioning in the faith they were raised in, Deep Talks offers a positive map to find true meaning in life and a positive path to help people reconstruct their faith within a broad, historic Christian perspective.


I value your support and patronage! File hosting for the podcast, recording and video tools cost money; not only that but for each episode I put in a significant amount of time into study, research, recording and editing to complete the finished product that you hear or watch. Even with that, I still want to improve our video content and continue to bring on amazing guests for interviews, and those dreams require an even greater commitment of financial resources and time.

Your contributions can ensure that this podcast continues for the thousands of listeners tuning in and engaging with these important topics!

Thank you!
Paul Anleitner
Goals
58 of 300 patrons
When I reach 300 patrons I will be able to sustain releasing weekly episodes which costs not only hours of research, show prep, recording and editing, but also a small monthly hosting fee with a podcast hosting company. This level of support will ensure that I can continue to provide regular & free theological education and content to anyone with an internet connection.
