    #170 Questioning Faith (With Randy Newman)

    #170 Questioning Faith (With Randy Newman)

    Cary has words with friend of the show, Randy Newman, author of Questioning Evangelism, Mere Evangelism and a new book about spiritual journey called, Questioning Faith.  This is a conversation about how God uses us despite our terrible attempts at evangelism, and how non-believers are often stopped in their tracks by unexpected things. And it turns out there's one book by CS Lewis that neither Cary or Newman can understand or get into.  Find out what it is in this episode.

    #168 Space Invaders?

    #168 Space Invaders?

    James and Barry have extended words about Unidentified Autonomous (or Anomalous, or Aerial) Phenomena - UAPs to their friends. Strange things are being seen in the skies, even by highly trained and highly sceptical USAF fighter pilots, there is video evidence which has been made publicly available, and these things are being discussed at the highest levels of government. What's going on? Why have governments previously wanted to keep quiet about it? And how should Christians think about these things? Is it a threat to historic, biblical Christianity - or confirmation of it?

Best podcast I know

I listen to podcasts constantly throughout the day and there’s no better one for me than this one. It’s both entertaining and incredibly inspiring.

Philip Heard ,

Excellent!

I know Barry Cooper from his work on LUTHER: THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF THE GERMAN REFORMER, and Ligonier's SIMPLY PUT podcast- both are outstanding. This has been a great discovery. These guys have a slightly different cultural perspective as Brits, yet share convictions with me as Reformed Christians. The episode with Carl Trueman was very informative, and the British accents reached critical mass. This show is a great mix of fun & serious topic discussions.

Great Podcast

The host summed it up perfectly “come for the accents and stay for the theological insights”.
