JD Greear: We're All Searching For Christmas
Most of us are over familiar with the events of the first Christmas. But what if there's more to it than we thought?
Sitting President of The Southern Baptist Convention, JD Greear joins us on the podcast to tell us about the new Christmas evangelistic book he's written, what it really meant for him to surrender his life to Jesus and how so much of his teaching centers on rejecting "cultural Christianity" in all its forms.
David Mathis: Faith, Writing, and Christmas
David Mathis, executive editor at Desiring God, is passionate about words and Jesus. His new advent devotion, The Christmas We Didn't Expect, ties these passions together as he helps readers renew their sense of awe during advent. Listen as he shares about his own story of coming to faith, writing as a means of ministry, and his desire to help Christians marvel at Christ, especially during the Christmas season.
Bonus Episode: Are Online Gatherings Really Church?
This is a special bonus episode podcast. We’re not talking about the latest release from the Good Book Company, instead we've got three pastors and theologians to think through the changing landscape of how we respond to the coranavirus lockdown measures, imposed by the civil authorities.
There have been many imaginative solutions both high tech and low tech which have enabled virtual meetings of church, but are they actually church, and what are the theological implications of that?
Barnabas Piper: Christians are Allowed to be Happy!
Barnabas Piper has written a book encouraging Christians to be happy. You may be forgiven for thinking that Christians are the last people who should need a book about happiness—after all, they're saved and loved by the creator of the universe—but happiness is surprisingly fleeting and requires wisdom to know how to find it in the way God intended.
Adam Mabry: Overcoming Tribal Instincts
Adam Mabry claims to be both a Calvinist AND a Charismatic Christian. But that's a contradiction in terms, surely? Maybe...maybe not, and perhaps that's the point.
Adam is the pastor of a church in Boston where the university students in his congregation are as numerous as the MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporters.
In this episode we talk to him about his new book Stop Taking Sides and how learning to hold truths in tension can save us from anxiety and outrage.
Amy Orr-Ewing: Where Is God In All The Suffering?
The existence of pain and suffering is one of the most common objections against the God of the bible. Amy Orr-Ewing has encountered the problem of suffering both in her personal life and in her work as the President of OCCA The Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics.
In this episode we talk to her about new book from our popular Questioning Faith series.
