Questions matter, says Matthew Lee Anderson, but they are not an end in and of themselves. His new book is called The End of our Exploring, but he’s not calling us to put an end to our exploring, Rather, he is suggesting that our exploring needs an end – a telos – an ultimate purpose.

There are two ways to miss this. One way is assuming questioning is wrong, and if only we properly understood faith, there would be no doubt.  We can also celebrate the questioning, as if every question asked in every way is somehow ok. But according to Anderson, we need to learn to not only question, but to question well. Questioning for questioning sake, rather than truth’s sake, makes us and our quest autonomous. But we’re not. Come to to hear Anderson explain good questioning further, and learn more about his book The End of Our Exploring. I’m John Stonestreet.
