    Classic Replay: Why Suffering? Sharon Dirckx & Alom Shaha

    Classic Replay: Why Suffering? Sharon Dirckx & Alom Shaha

    "Why?" was the title of a book that had just been published by Sharon Dirckx looking at God, evil and suffering. She interacted with atheist Alom Shaha as we asked "how can a loving God allow suffering?"




     




    We also heard stories from people who had been through suffering but kept their faith such as Will, who became a Christian after losing his wife and a child in a tragic road accident, and Rachel who suffered from MS for a number of years. First broadcast in 2013

    Classic Replay: Three views on hell

    Classic Replay: Three views on hell

    The film “Hellbound” by Kevin Miller questioned the traditional "eternal, conscious torment" view of hell and asked whether Universalism is actually taught in scripture.
    Justin was joined by Kevin Miller, along with Glenn Peoples who holds an "annihilationist" position, and Peter Sanlon who defended the traditional view. They discussed whether questioning hell goes against evangelicalism, whether evangelism is at stake and what most Christians really believe about hell. First broadcast in 2013.

    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.

Thank you

Hi Justin / Unbelievable, thank you for the thoughful debates. Always a good listen.

Ghastly Podcast

Someone tell us how it’s helpful to non believers and faith seekers who might have the misfortune of listening to Christian’s who completely disagree, or look down their nose at those that don’t? A great example is the gay people they invite on for a public hanging, backed up by the avalanche of hate from Premier listeners. How lovely.

Excellent

Unbelievably addictive. No matter what your world view is you can be assured that by listening to this programme you will be treated to a range of thought provoking, challenging and stimulating discussions that are skilfully moderated by a host who is only slightly less charming and eloquent than his wife (more Lucy please!). I love the fact that here at least I can get the theological meat I’m longing for presented in a way that is intellectually salient but accessible.

As someone on the autism spectrum and with a diagnosis of ADHD, it’s rare to find a mainstream programme that can appeal to both my obsessive engagement with the more esoteric areas of theology and hold my attention long enough to reliably educate me in said areas, so I love it when a new episode pops up in my podcast feed, it’s a highlight of my week. Keep up the good work.Cheers Justin and team!
