    #130 Theodicy and the fracturing of meaning - with Dr. Bethany Sollereder

    #130 Theodicy and the fracturing of meaning - with Dr. Bethany Sollereder

    Do you ever wonder how pain and suffering fit with God's goodness? Dr. Bethany Sollereder has spent her life exploring that question. Today we spoke with Bethany about theodicy––theology that faces the reality of evil and suffering but keeps on affirming that God is good. How do we find meaning in suffering? Should we even try? When there are no easy answers, how do we move forward faithfully? Join us today as Bethany helps us think through an honest response to hard questions.

    #128 Global Christianity: evangelism, poverty and refugees - with Dr. Miriam Adeney

    It can be easy to hold a limited view of Christianity––to think that our local expressions of faith are universal. But Christian faith has a powerful presence all around the globe––in Africa, Asia, and South America, as well as in the West. Today we’re talking about global Christianity with Dr. Miriam Adeney, author of Kingdom Without Borders: The Untold Story of Global Christianity and Associate Professor of World Christian Studies at Seattle Pacific University. How is the growth of Christianity in the Majority World transforming the global church? How do different cultural practices impact the communication of the faith? How can we bring together evangelistic practice and healthy cultural humility? And what is the role of the global church in addressing global poverty? Don’t miss this fascinating conversation.

    #127 Caring for those in prison - with Dr. William Wan

    #127 Caring for those in prison - with Dr. William Wan

    Scripture encourages us to care for those in prison, but it can be easy to forget about those who are literally locked away and out of sight. Today we're talking about prison ministry with Regent alumnus Dr. William Wan, chair of the board of Prison Fellowship Singapore and General Secretary of the Singapore Kindness Movement. Join us as we hear about the hopeful and challenging work of caring for prisoners and those coping with life post-release––cultivating empathy, building a meaningful ministry, and nurturing faith beyond jailhouse religion.

Fascinating topics and guests, poor hosts

The topics are fascinating, the guests are impressive, but I agree that the hosts are somewhat unprofessional. They need some coaching (or maybe a more stringent editor) to ask better follow up questions, stumble less over their words, and stay on topic. There is great potential in this podcast. I hope Regent takes advantage of it by improving its quality.
