    Roberta Ahmanson on the Parallels Between 5th Century Roman Culture & Our Secular Moment

    For those of you that felt like 6 episodes wasn't quite enough, this one is for you. Roberta Ahmanson is a brilliant expert on all things Church History. For context, she logged in for this remote interview with John Mark from a library of 20,000 books, all of which she's read ... Based on the premise that there is much to learn from the Church's history, John Mark and Roberta rewind to the culture of 5th century Rome to discuss the parallels between that moment and our own, and how Christians functioned in the midst of it.

    Dr. Nancy Pearcey on Loving Your Body, Human Rights and Secularism’s Low View of Sexuality & Gender

    Dr. Nancy Pearcey has been described as "America's preeminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual.” John Mark describes her book Love Thy Body as “hands down the best work [he’s] read on the worldview behind the sexual revolution.” In this conversation, the two of them discuss Personhood Theory, and how this kind of thinking has a bearing on gender, abortion, sex, human rights & more.
