Fresh off the plane from Israel, John Stonestreet speaks with Andrew Walker about celebrity conversions—specifically, the conversion of Kanye West. How should we as Christians respond? Walker shares his observations—and that he’s encouraged by what he’s hearing so far from West about his approach to Scripture, his concern for his family, and his regret over the lifestyle he’s promoted in the past.

Andrew Walker, formerly of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, is now Associate Professor of Christian Ethics and Apologetics at the Southern Theological Seminary, as well as Associate Dean of Theology, and the Director of the Carl F. H. Henry Institute for Evangelical Engagement.
