If you could find the answer to one question, any question, what would it be? How might your life turn on the answer? For atheist Cory Markum, life began to turn as he looked up at the sky in prayer after the death of a friend and realized he was trying to pray to a God he no longer believed in. For former pastor Drew Sokol, life began to turn as he stood preaching about Jesus to thousands of people and yet found himself questioning the very words he was saying. Those turns also brought them to one another, for a shared journey exploring one of the most polarizing questions in history: Who was Jesus Christ?

Gave plenty of questions to ask yourself

I really like that you can’t just listen to this and it tells you an answer. You still have to decide yourself and they provide great sources and definitely try to remain unbiased. To the review saying that it’s a skeptic and an atheist rather than a pastor and an atheist is absolutely not true and the podcast is not misleading. The pastor very much believes in God but is honest about any doubts he’s faced...which I’m assuming all Christ followers have had at some point. Overall it’s very great!

Civil and Raw. 5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I come to this podcast late, with the benefit of hearing the finished product at once. I have to say that it is one of the most candid and civil discussions between a questioning believer and a hopeful atheist I have heard on podcasts these days, and I’ve heard many. They don’t take any shortcuts to conclusions, but genuinely wish to know the truth. It seems that many who rated poorly only listened until the 2nd episode, when they deemed it was uneven-handed in favor of the “Christian Apologist.” If one continues to listen, and onward into Drew’s sequel podcast Room for Doubt, one will see that he is not a dogmatic apologist, but a well-educated seeker of truth that sincerely grapples (or has already grappled) with the questions and arguments his intelligent co-host and Atheist Cory Markum puts forth. What is more, an entire episode is dedicated to Cory’s (atheist) arguments. Both of them are very generous to one another. Admittedly, it sounds like Cory *wants* it to be true, but note that he still can’t believe it. This has been incredibly thought provoking and helpful for me as I journey on my own core-shaking existential crisis of faith and skepticism. No matter where you find yourself on the faith spectrum, you will be challenged with things that you won’t like, and some that you will. If you don’t really care to know the truth or if you just want a podcast that bashes the opposing side to affirm your present beliefs, this podcast is not for you.

Misleading

This claims to be a Christian and an Atheist but Is more accurately a conversation between a skeptic and an atheist. Why they mislabel one can only guess. They make interesting conversations but are more or less an echo chamber as it’s evident they have similar viewpoints. Disappointed that it’s deceptive and not an honest discussion.
