Tabletop Theology with Alexi Sargeant

AMDG. Writer, theater maker, game designer, and alumnus of Kolbe and Yale University Alexi Sargeant joins the Kolbecast in this episode to discuss community and storytelling in the past, present, and future.  He speaks with experience as both a student and a teacher about encountering Shakespeare and other dramatic works meant to be spoken, highlights the intersection of theology and culture, and nerds out with Steven and Everett Buyarski about the role of the fantastical in a life of formation.

Alexi’s wife Leah Libresco Sargeant spoke at Kolbe Academy’s 2023 Call to Holiness Retreat. Leah’s presentation is available here.  

Saintly Creatures: 14 Tales of Animals and Their Holy Companions, Alexi’s new book, is available now!
