    #245 What Solving True Crime Cases Taught Detective J. Warner Wallace About Life

    #245 What Solving True Crime Cases Taught Detective J. Warner Wallace About Life

    "Every murder investigation teaches two lessons: a death lesson and a life lesson.” For decades, cold-case homicide detective J. Warner Wallace investigated the causes behind deaths and murders, chasing one lead after another as he attempted to solve the case. Several of these cases remain open, unsolved mysteries. But even those that haven't yet revealed the identity of the killer do expose the truths of human nature: what's important to us, what threatens our well-being, and what causes us to flourish. Jim joins the podcast to talk about the lessons he learned about the meaning of life after spending decades solving cold case homicides. ------------------------------------------------------------------This video is sponsored by:IMPACT 360Impact 360 prepares the next generation of leaders who follow Jesus through residential, community-centered experiences for 15 to 25-year-olds.  They do this through one- and two-week summer camps for high school students and the Fellows program, a nine-month gap year program for 18-20-year-olds who want to live out their faith boldly.

    #244 Should Christians Practice Gentle Parenting?, with Abbie Halberstadt

    #244 Should Christians Practice Gentle Parenting?, with Abbie Halberstadt

    Abbie Halberstadt joins the podcast to talk about a parenting method called “Gentle Parenting.” She defines it and discusses some of the unbiblical worldview assumptions that can actually prevent our kids from being able to fully understand and appreciate the gospel. Should parents practice punishment or restorative discipline? Should Christians view all emotions as valid? Has the oppressed vs. oppressed narrative made its way into our parenting? Abbie and Alisa discuss all these questions and more.------------------------------------------------------------------This video is sponsored by:GOOD RANCHERSGood Ranchers: American Meat Delivered Use the code, ALISA to get 10% off your subscription and a price lock guarantee until 2026!Go to www.goodranchers.com/alisa for more information.SEVEN WEEKS COFFEETaste the Coffee that is Saving Lives.Use the code, ALISA, to get 10% off any product.www.sevenweekscoffee.comIMPACT 360Impact 360 prepares the next generation of leaders who follow Jesus through residential, community-centered experiences for 15 to 25-year-olds. They do this through one- and two-week summer camps for high school students and the Fellows program, a nine-month gap year program for 18-20-year-olds who want to live out their faith boldly.

    #243 The Risk of Relativism: How Denying Truth will Leave you Ruled by Brute Force, with Greg Koukl

    #243 The Risk of Relativism: How Denying Truth will Leave you Ruled by Brute Force, with Greg Koukl

    In his book, Street Smarts: Using Questions to Answer Christianity’s Toughest Challenges, Greg Koukl writes, "History is testimony to a basic fact. Human lives will be ruled by one of two fundamental forces: either truth or power. Humanity will be governed either by the physical facts of God’s world and the moral facts of his character, or by the forces that oppose those moral and physical facts.” In today’s episode, Greg discusses the chaos we see in our culture that is a direct result of a denial of absolute truth. He also shares some “Street Smart” tactics Christians can use to challenge the assumptions of other worldviews while keeping our conversations friendly and helpful. ------------------------------------------------------------------This video is sponsored by:SEVEN WEEKS COFFEETaste the Coffee that is Saving Lives.Use the code, ALISA, to get 10% off any product.www.sevenweekscoffee.com (http://www.sevenweekscoffee.com/)FOUNDATION WORLDVIEWFoundation Worldview creates curriculum series that will empower your child to think biblically in a deceptive world. Go to foundationworldview.com (http://foundationworldview.com/) and use the discount code ALISA to receive 10% off a family license.GOOD RANCHERSGood Ranchers: American Meat Delivered Use the code, ALISA to get 10% off your subscription and a price lock guarantee until 2026!Go to www.goodranchers.com/alisa (http://www.goodranchers.com/alisa) for more information.--------------------------------------------------------------------To Purchase the new CD, “Beauty from the Ash”, go to www.alisachilders.com/music (http://www.alisachilders.com/music)There you can get the CD, backing tracks, string charts, rhythm charts and stems.Support us on Patreon:  www.patreon.com/alisachilders (http://www.patreon.com/alisachilders)To order “Another Gospel”:  www.alisachilders.com/another-gospel/ (http://www.alisachilders.com/another-gospel/)To order “Live Your Truth":  www.alisachilders.com/live-your-truth-and-other-lies/ (http://www.alisachilders.com/live-your-truth-and-other-lies/)To order “The Deconstruction of Christianity”: https://alisachilders.com/the-deconstruction-of-christianity/ (https://alisachilders.com/the-deconstruction-of-christianity/)For Alisa's Merch: https://alisachilders.creator-spring.com (https://alisachilders.creator-spring.com/)To see what gear Alisa uses to record her podcast, go to:https://kit.co/alisachilders (https://kit.co/alisachilders)Potential Sponsors: https://alisachilders.com/sponsor-request-form/ (https://alisachilders.com/sponsor-request-form/)Product links are affiliate links which means if you buy something we'll receive a small commission.

    #242 A Former Skeptic Responds to Today's Toughest Objections to Christianity, with Bobby Conway

    Dr. Bobby Conway joins the podcast to talk about his deep struggle with doubt that led him to write a new intellectual memoir, Does Christianity Still Make Sense? In today’s episode, Bobby shares his story of coming to faith as a young adult, only to face unexpected intellectual doubts about the claims of Christianity. He talks about how he thought through issues like church hypocrisy, the moral failures of church leaders, and the increasing popularity of people claiming to be spiritual, but not affiliating with organized religion. He also covers the difference between doubting and questioning. ------------------------------------------------------------------This video is sponsored by:FOUNDATION WORLDVIEWFoundation Worldview creates curriculum series that will empower your child to think biblically in a deceptive world. Go to foundationworldview.com (http://foundationworldview.com/) and use the discount code ALISA to receive 10% off a family license.GOOD RANCHERSGood Ranchers: American Meat Delivered Use the code, ALISA to get 10% off your subscription and a price lock guarantee until 2026!Go to www.goodranchers.com/alisa (http://www.goodranchers.com/alisa) for more information.SEVEN WEEKS COFFEETaste the Coffee that is Saving Lives.Use the code, ALISA, to get 10% off any product.www.sevenweekscoffee.com (http://www.sevenweekscoffee.com/)--------------------------------------------------------------------To Purchase the new CD, “Beauty from the Ash”, go to www.alisachilders.com/music (http://www.alisachilders.com/music)There you can get the CD, backing tracks, string charts, rhythm charts and stems.Support us on Patreon:  www.patreon.com/alisachilders (http://www.patreon.com/alisachilders)To order “Another Gospel”:  www.alisachilders.com/another-gospel/ (http://www.alisachilders.com/another-gospel/)To order “Live Your Truth":  www.alisachilders.com/live-your-truth-and-other-lies/ (http://www.alisachilders.com/live-your-truth-and-other-lies/)To order “The Deconstruction of Christianity”: https://alisachilders.com/the-deconstruction-of-christianity/ (https://alisachilders.com/the-deconstruction-of-christianity/)For Alisa's Merch: https://alisachilders.creator-spring.com (https://alisachilders.creator-spring.com/)To see what gear Alisa uses to record her podcast, go to:https://kit.co/alisachilders (https://kit.co/alisachilders)Potential Sponsors: https://alisachilders.com/sponsor-request-form/ (https://alisachilders.com/sponsor-request-form/)Product links are affiliate links which means if you buy something we'll receive a small commission.

This is a new favorite of mine

Alissa Childers always has such interesting choices for guests and asks great thought provoking questions.

The episode on Gentle Parenting was so thought provoking and Gospel based.

ErinCast ,

Christopher Yuan episode

I was very saddened to hear how Preston Sprinkle and his ministry was characterized in this episode and then even more so that after he reached out he was ignored this far. There were many logical fallacies in the arguments and reasoning of the episode and gross generalizations and mischaracterizations of people (like Preston) that were wildly inaccurate. Please follow up with Preston rectify this for the sake of unity in the gospel.

Bug eaters ,

Maturing My Faith

The level of instruction from Alisa’s guests are high level and transformative. I come away from an episode stronger in knowledge and understanding of scripture and they way we should apply Truth to our witness as the CHURCH of Jesus Christ.
