"The Order of Elijah" is a metalcore band from Joplin, Missouri.  Since their debut album "Accession" released in 2012, they have been identified as a Christian band.  Yet lead singer Shannon Low recently declared that he - and the band - no longer held to the Christian faith.  Low is an atheist, and he is being very public about it.

Shannon Low joins Seth Andrews for a candid discussion about Christianity, the business of Christian music, his apostasy, the backlash, and the future of a "formerly Christian" band.
