The ‘Sin’ of Empathy? (with Hannah Anderson and Joe Rigney)

The moral character of empathy has recently been a subject of contentious online debate among Christians. Joe Rigney and Hannah Anderson, who have both engaged in these disputes with their different concerns, join me for an extended discussion of the question, hoping to clear up some misunderstandings on both sides, and to break some differences down to size.

Within the conversation we mention various articles and other material.
