Alister McGrath: Mere Discipleship (Encore Presentation)
Alister McGrath is the director of the Ian Ramsey Centre and Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University. Alister discuss why Christianity should be seen as the source of truth for today’s questions – not just yesterday’s.
The Ultimate Impact of Christianity
Many have heard of the term "Defender of the Faith," but what does this truly mean? We may each have a different answer for this but many of us would not know how to live this out in our lives. John Dickerson, a prize-winning journalist and author of Jesus Skeptic, equips Christians to go into conversations surrounding their faith with confidence.
Being a Man of God in the Modern World
The definition of what it means to be a man has changed immensely in our society over the years, especially as of late. Depending on who you ask, this answer can include a lot of different expectations and opinions. Dave Willis, relationship coach, author of Raising Boys Who Respect Girls and television host for MarriageToday, dives deep into the struggles men are encountering today and how to combat the tendency of our society to minimize the importance of this conversation.
Discovering Saint Nick
During this Christmas season, some may ponder the thought "Where did the term Santa Claus come from?" Then some may even try to draw a correlation from the process of giving gifts, to Christianity. Dr. Adam English, Professor of Christian Theology and Philosophy at Campbell University, shares how his research has revealed to many who the real Saint Nicholas was.
Trusting God’s Promises in All Circumstances
There are times when we find ourselves questioning God's plan for our lives when we can't seem to make sense of what is happening to us. His plan for our lives will often not unfold how we originally imagined or wished for it to, so we must trust in His divine providence even when the road becomes difficult. Dr. Michael Youseff (author of Counting Stars in an Empty Sky, the senior pastor of the Church of the Apostles, and the executive president of Leading the Way) unpacks these truths and shares from his own experiences of trusting God in a place outside of his comfort zone.
The importance of the pro-life movement
The discussion surrounding abortion is as alive as it's ever been. The time is now for Christians to step up and unapologetically stand behind the pro-life movement. Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List, addresses the importance of getting into the thick of this conversation and looks at what the Bible says when it comes to the sanctity of life.
Loving this podcast so much! Having been a believer for most of my adult life, this podcast has opened my eyes to how much I don’t know. It’s good though, because the conversations have challenged me to go deeper in my relationship with the Lord. I appreciate the thought provoking content Jeremiah and the guests bring to the show, along with the Q & A at the end of the program. Then there’s the power teaching segment...Jeremiah takes it to church! Thanks for all the hard work that goes into this show. I can’t get enough!!
I dont know of a stronger, smarter voice int the world today than Dr Johnston. He's hip, he's funny, he’s engaging, he's normal but yet this young PHD has a wealth of knowledge and vocabulary that uniquely speaks to all. To find someone so capable in the .edu world but similarly so capable in simply offering a helping hand to those seeking to think and discover on their own, he is for sure an entity with an amazing tactician and skill in communication. I Highly recommend.
Covers wide-ranging issues we face every day
I really enjoyed the variety of real-life questions and how thoughtful/thinking Christians should respond. First show alone discussed how to best know God’s will about situations we encounter, how our intellect can feed our faith, the biblical perspective on suicide, and much more. All in all, it was a lively, interesting discussion that helped me think through things I’ve wondered about.
