Season 3 Episode 15: Don’t be scared, but we’re talking about EVIL on the show today with the Rev. Dr. Leah Schade. It’s part of our occasional series on how pop culture represents issues of faith and religion. Today, we discuss “The Exorcist,” “Evil” and “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.”

Dr. Schade says, “ When you really look at the different ways in which Scripture depicts the character of Satan, you see it’s a much more complex and nuanced portrayal across different passages of Scripture.”

OK, it might be a little scary, but fun. Check it out! Listen to the podcast here. (Hold your phone up to the QR code and click the link.)
