God Save the Spare: What Prince Harry’s Book Reveals About Today’s Culture

Summary:

Here’s a BONUS episode since we had a little “spare” time on our hands! And by that, we mean that Keith and Patrick just read Prince Harry’s new book, Spare, and are spilling the royal-tea. ☕️ But this isn’t your typical book review. Nobody’s taking a side: They’re not loyal to the royals (or to Harry!). This episode dives much deeper into what Harry’s confessions reveal about today’s culture and “the spirit of the age.” Drawing comparisons between Prince Harry and his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, Keith and Patrick explain the generational differences in their stances on institutions. They ultimately conclude that Harry’s posture is an allegory for the dilemma that our current culture faces: Do we view tradition as a launching ground or as a statue that must be toppled? Should we fight back against “toxic” institutions that confine us, or should we submit to something greater than ourselves? And what about Christians: should they seek to tear down institutions or rebuild them? Hear as Keith and Patrick make the case that, despite Harry’s conclusions, embracing life as the “spare” may actually be the better way. Listen now!
