Controversial but not logical

A moderator that does not question his guests sanity when the declare prayer to be a method to ask God to change reality to suit our wishes to demonstrate his existence is clearly struggling with the concept of Christianity and the way we are taught to pray by Jesus.

Most of the shows, whilst clearly aggravating, fail to show logic conclusion to the questions at hand because they fail to apply critical thinking about the questions, thus making most of the answers miss the mark. The debates may however give you the opportunity to figure out why they are so dissatisfying and practice your critical thinking on them and to come up with a lot more questions:-)

Excellent programme discussing Christian issues

I’m a relatively new listener and have so enjoyed catching up with some of the older episodes in this very worthwhile series. I particularly like Justin Brierley’s interview style, he treats all his guests with kindness and respect whilst still initiating interesting debates.
Thank you for producing such a worthwhile programme.

Great podcast - you may not agree with all the views expressed but it will make you think. Also the podcast will introduce you to a rss as mad of ideas and thinkers often overlooked in the academy.
