    A conversation with Christopher Watkin - S11.E16

    Communicating biblical truth to a post-modern culture is no easy task. But Christopher Watkin, author of the new book, Biblical Critical Theory, not only understands the post-modern mindset, but also how to communicate what he calls the "unique treasures" the Bible offers for rightly interpreting the world in which we live. Christopher Watkin has a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge and is associate professor of French studies at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Listening In is a listener supported program produced by WORLD Radio.

    A conversation with Tim Keller - S11.E13

    A conversation with Tim Keller - S11.E13

    Very few things are harder for a Christian to do than forgive. Yet there is nothing more countercultural today than loving our enemies, and praying for those who spitefully use us. In this conversation with Warren Smith, Tim Keller talks about his newest book: Forgive: Why Should I and How Can I? Keller builds on decades of pastoral counseling and Christian experience as he expounds on what the Bible says about forgiveness--helping believers find healing while not ignoring God's justice. Tim Keller is a best selling author, founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, and co-founder of the Gospel Coalition.Listening In is a listener supported program produced by WORLD Radio.

Wish the music wasn’t so hokey

The hokey cowboy music intro in combo with the country accent makes it hard to forward this podcast to urban non-believers. Slicker into music would be helpful, as well as skipping recap, just jumping into the podcast, and not promoting anything for a few minutes in.
