God, Humanity, and Gender in Captain Marvel + “All Along the Watchtower”

At first, Vers seems like an ordinary alien with an extraordinary power. But, in her dreams, she remembers that she was once something different, and perhaps something more. That's how Captain Marvel, the newest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe begins. In this special episode of Three Chords and the Truth, Garrick and Timothy take a look at Captain Marvel and the larger metanarrative of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Then, in the second half, Garrick reveals his wrong opinion about Bob Dylan as he and Timothy examine the song that inspired this podcast in the first place, "All Along the Watchtower." This week, the Infinity Gauntlet throws the webslinging wonder Peter Parker into the ring against the mighty Shazam.

What Is Apologetics? + “Age of Aquarius”

What is “apologetics” and why should Christians care about this topic at all? That’s the issue that bestselling author Timothy Paul Jones and theologian Garrick Bailey tackle in this episode of Three Chords and the Truth—but that’s not all! No episode is ever complete until we draw a mystery question from the Infinity Gauntlet and talk about the the history of rock and roll. This week, the mystery question pits DC against Marvel, and we go searching for divine truth in an almost-forgotten song entitled “The Age of Aquarius” and in the early decades of rock and roll.
