Episode 28 - Jonathan and Brian in conversation Still Unbelievable!

    • Religion & Spirituality

Matthew hosts a conversation between returning guests Brian Blais and Jonathan McLatchie to further the conversation on why Jonathan is confident that the resurrection of Jesus can be accepted as an historical event. The conversation goes beyond that and touches on the question of should we be accepting of personal testimony for strange single occurrence events as well as a bit of biology.

See below for links to items by Brian and Jonathan, as well as the two peer reviewed accounts of recovery following prayer that Jonathan mentions.
