Doug Giles is a man you should know. One of the brightest stars in the galaxy of conservative thought, Doug is the man behind ClashDaily.com, a popular columnist for TownHall.com, and author of an excellent, thought-provoking new book, Rise, Kill and Eat: A Theology of Hunting from Genesis to Revelation. Doug’s articles have appeared in numerous other print and online media outlets including The Washington Times, The Daily Caller, Fox Nation, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Examiner, The Blaze, American Hunter Magazine, and ABC News. He is a frequent guest on the Fox News Channel and Fox Business Channel as well as numerous nationally syndicated radio shows across the nation.
Doug and his wife Margaret have two daughters: Hannah, who devastated ACORN with her nation-shaking undercover videos, and Regis who is an NRA columnist, huntress, Second Amendment activist, and owner of GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com. Doug’s interests include guns, big game hunting, big game fishing, fine art, cigars, helping wounded warriors, and regularly offending people who dislike God and the USA (by challenging their mushy-headed thinking with logic, reason, and facts). Doug’s long list of accolades includes “One of the 40 Best Conservative Websites of 2013”, one of the “50 Best Conservative Columnists of 2013,” one of the “100 Most Popular Conservative Websites for 2013,” and “Hot Conservative New Media Superman” (by Politichicks). Doug recently took time out from his ultra-busy schedule to join me for an interview about his new book, Rise, Kill and Eat: A Theology of Hunting from Genesis to Revelation.”
I am fascinated by the title of your new book, “Rise, Kill and Eat: A Theology of Hunting from Genesis to Revelation.” How did you decide on that title?
The title comes from Acts 10:13 when God had to set straight a discombobulated disciple named Peter using a vision that entailed a hunting illustration.
