    This is the first episode recorded on the new PC, please bear with me as  I get used to working on Windows (used to be Mac OS), and also new audio & video editing software. Steep learning curve incoming ;)

    Notes & Corrections:  
    I say 'Theodicy' in this conversation when talking about reading the  person of Jesus back into the OT, the term I meant was  'Theophany'
    Article about Neanderthals, art & jewellery

    When Belief Dies #63 - 'Dominion' with Tom Holland

    When Belief Dies #63 - 'Dominion' with Tom Holland

    This week Sam and Daniel are joined by historian Tom Holland.

    The video version of this conversation can be found here on our YouTube channel 12 hours after the audio version goes live.

    In September 2019 Tom published a book called ‘Dominion’ in which he examines Christianity and its influence upon the west and the world as a  whole.

    In this conversation, we dig into Tom’s findings as well as why he still doesn’t believe in the core claims for Christianity, such as the  resurrection of Christ. This was a refreshingly honest conversation in which Tom, Daniel and Sam push into the narrative of Christianity and the reality of the world  they see around them.

Excellent Podcast

Enjoying the podcast so much. Great variety of guests, journeys, beliefs, non beliefs. Thought provoking, interesting, especially for anyone, like myself, having left faith behind yet still exploring the landscape with curiosity. So good to find commonality in the exploration without conditions attached.

Excellent

Very interesting and honest conversations. Plenty there for Christians, atheists and anyone in between!

Honest and fair

This podcast has some great interviews. Sam as a former Christian is really respectful of both sides and each guest is allowed the space to talk and share their unique perspective on questions of faith. It’s been great to hear from some prominent speakers in this less adversarial format.
