    Classic Replay: NT Wright & James White debate Paul & Justification

    Classic Replay: NT Wright & James White debate Paul & Justification

    From the archives: NT Wright is a leading professor of New Testament at the forefront of what has been called the New Perspective on Paul. His reassessment of the words of Paul on "justification" led to concern from some reformed church leaders. Does this new perspective undermine important doctrine, or did the reformers read their Bible wrong? James White, reformed Bible scholar of Alpha and Omega ministries, discussed with NT Wright as they sought to find out what Paul really said about justification.

    Were colonial-era missionaries good or bad for Africa? Victor Simz & Jonathan Wilson

    Were colonial-era missionaries good or bad for Africa? Victor Simz & Jonathan Wilson

    Were Victorian missionaries a tool of oppression, exploitation and empire as some critics claim? Or did they leave a legacy of education, healthcare and eradicating inhumane practises?




     




    Victor Simz, known online as the Z Historian, is a Zambian historian who has charted the impact of missionaries in East Africa. He discusses the issues with Jonathan Wilson who comes from a missionary family and believes the story of the positive global impact of missions work is often under-appreciated.

    Classic Replay: London’s atheist church - Sanderson Jones & David Robertson

    Classic Replay: London’s atheist church - Sanderson Jones & David Robertson

    In Jan 2013 a new church began in London - with singing, a sermon and a great sense of community - but for godless people. Atheist stand up comedian Sanderson Jones who co-founded "the Sunday Assembly" talked about its first meeting and why he set it up. David Robertson, at the time a church minister, asked questions about whether an "atheist church" makes sense and what Christians could learn from it. Justin was also joined by two of those who attended the first service, Rory Fenton and Simon Jenkins.

Eye-Opening, Fearless

I am so grateful for the ways that this show approaches conversations about faith. Is it unbiased? No, but nor is it afraid to really listen to interlocutors without strawmanning or dismissing them.

Love it!

I’m from BC Canada and I love this podcast. It’s so good to hear debates from atheists and Christians, or even Christians with apposing views.

Syd.Vicious ,

Sooo good

Your show was recommended to me last fall and I love it. I never miss an episode. Such great topics so well facilitated. Got your book and can hardly wait to dig in. Keep it up. So great to hear opposing perspectives respectfully presented and thoroughly addressed. By the way this review is coming from Canada.
