Episode 10 // Derek Webb

March 7, 2021

Many of us have had a complicated relationship with faith. Singer/songwriter and leader of a widely popular band Caedmon's Call, Derek Webb spent much time submersed in the Christian subculture of the 90s and 00s. But over time, as he pursued a solo career, his songs drifted outside the norms of what his record label wanted him to be talking about. His own relationship with faith began to be strained until he stopped identifying as Christian altogether. His story resonates with so many who find their relationship to Christianity... complicated.
