    Justin Barrett: Engaging Science to Shape Culture - EP 143

    Justin Barrett: Engaging Science to Shape Culture - EP 143

    Justin Barrett is a scientist who’s studied, among many things, the uniqueness of human beings.

Informative and Balanced

This podcast was a breath of fresh air. I was apprehensive at first that being a Southern Baptist seminary this podcast would be preachy, overly conservative, and only include their people (tribe) as guest. I could not have been more wrong. They have engaged guests and professors from varying backgrounds. The conversations have been balanced, informative, and challenging. Dr Keathley, Dr Quinn, and Nate are great hosts.

God centered conversations

This is what is needed. Easy to listen to with emphasis on being God-centered. If I was to be picky, I would say the only downfall is Scripture is not read often. However, just my opinion. This no star is deducted because God is mentioned in every facet of the podcast! Well done!

Christ and Culture

If you are looking to explore topics where theology and culture intersect this podcast should definitely be on your list. The episodes are long enough to get started on a topic but not too long as to make it difficult to stay engaged as a listener. Congratulations on making it to 100 episodes!
