Influence

Admittedly, Dr. Craig and I have developed some disagreements on certain theological positions, some of which may grow stronger over time; however, disagreements with someone does not mean they have not influenced your life’s journey, and Dr. Craig has certainly done that. I started listening to his work as a young philosophy undergrad searching for truth about God’s existence, then I started accessing his work as a young Christian seeking orthodoxy. His arguments and positions were great launching points for search for God and orthodox Christianity, and I put both my positions and his through the intellectual ringer.
Apart from that, the charity he gives to his opponents is something to be mimicked. He is quick to accept correction on a position when he misunderstands his opponent (Sir Roger Penrose comes to mind). And his courage to take an honest intellectual approach to touchy and passionately-argued theological topics is an inspiration (the historical Adam and Eve). I look forward to more from Dr. Craig, and am grateful for the work he’s done for the faith, as it has pushed me forward in my young adulthood.

Josh Swamidass episode

I really appreciate this episode - I think Josh is onto something - you guys never brought up a potential “hybrid” or replication of an ancient interference into humanity - say I hear about “morphing “ or shape shifters or an alien being “perhaps a Satan being making a “Frankenstein” sort of human but very flesh like - and so interbreeding happened with Neanderthal being possible or other hominid (few variables here speculative ) which is not fully human - but there’s really a true true being made in the image of God - a god like being - Jesus is second Adam so only those pure beings which are fallen and very human can return back to the Father. - the sheep only hear “their” Shepherds voice - also an interesting fold of this can be “an enemy did this” - did what? An answer biblical and Holy Spirit can be an enemy Planted weeds/tares in the wheat harvest ! Next , the Master tells the servants not to pull out the weeds, let the wheat and weeds grow together as to not destroy all that is good as well as the ultimate growth of all that is good , “and then “ separate that at the harvest time and harvesters (Jesus said these are Angels) sort through that - I mean what is Jesus meaning by an enemy planted this weed into history ? Don’t we have to define whether Jesus meant history or was this figurative language about merely the inside our hearts or say just the wrestling with sin / doing what’s right .. ? One key is weakness is the power of God and brings glory more so than perfection , the distinction with Jesus is power is made perfect in weakness - perhaps when people view others and “see the fruits” we can be so flawed especially without the proper knowledge only found in Christ , for greatness is in the lowly , being human in its frailty is not the fraud not the manipulated genetics . 🤔

Premium Christian Philosophy and Theology for the Intellectual Christian

I cannot possibly recommend the work of William Lane Craig too highly. This man has done so much for the intellectual side of Christian faith, it is staggering. This podcast is a great way for people to get introduced to Craig’s thought and ideas, but it’s also a great way for those familiar with his work to listen to these ideas in a conversational format. Repetition is always good for retention, and retention is necessary if we are to share these quality ideas with our friends of faith and of non-belief.

Pros:

- Very clear presentation
- Conversational Format
- Engaging for beginners and seasoned theologians/philosophers alike
- Engages deeply with both philosophy and theology (and other disciplines at times as well)
- Engages with Criag’s interlocutors and opponents in a charitable and helpful fashion
- Can listen to Craig’s ideas starting with the topics that most interest you
- Constantly updated
- Short, bite-sized episodes with full text available online
- Accompanying website, written materials, YouTube videos, and published works by Craig help to make this part of a comprehensive set of tools for doing apologetics and philosophical theology.

Cons:

- Craig rarely (never?) has guests on this podcast. It is strictly a forum for Craig to share his ideas in a dialogue format with his co-host Kevin Harris.
- The show is bite-sized, but this means sometimes Craig will simply defer to his published works instead of explaining himself thoroughly. This will leave some listeners frustrated if they don’t wish/have time to engage with outside resources.
- Craig’s co-host will rarely push back on him too much. Although, the podcast does often interact with written/video critiques of Craig’s arguments. That said, videos of Craig’s debates are a better source if one is seeking to see him respond to serious pushback.
