Just recently a few of us lads headed off to the Katoomba Men’s Convention – a long way from the Mid-North Coast (Coffs Harbour) but, hey, it was worth it.
On the way back home, my son Sam, plugged his iPod into the car’s speaker system and we all settled back (apart from the driver!) to listen to a discussion between a Christian and a non-Christian.
We were stunned! We were impressed! We were focussed! Read more ...
The actual podcast we listened to was a somewhat tense discussion (at times) between Peter Hitchens (anti-theist Christopher Hitchen’s brother) and Adam Rutherford (atheist and editor of the science journal ‘Nature').
Christian v non-Christian!
And that, essentially, is what Premier Christian Radio’s ‘Unbelievable?’ is about – provoking discussions between Christians and non-Christians.
Ably hosted by the very affable Justin Brierley (pictured), “Unbelievable?’ attempts to get people talking, discussing and debating – about issues that are relevant now.
Occasionally there is the Christian who gets grilled by a number of atheists (‘Grill a Christian’) and sometimes 2 Christians discuss their differences (e.g. is the King James Version the ‘best’ available English translation?).
But mostly, the very likeable Justin Brierley invites prominent Christians (e.g. William Lane Craig, James White, Os Guinness) to debate prominent non-Christians (e.g. John Hick, Dan Barker, Paul Davies).
Justin has that very healthy skill of knowing when to allow discussion (and passion) flow but also knowing when to include his thoughts and questions into the 'debate'. He's an intelligent guy, with sensitivity. These qualities help shape "Unbelievable?" as a really valuable podcast.
Of course, there are many others than those mentioned above; names that would probably sound very familiar to you.
‘Unbelievable?’, I believe (couldn't resist it!) is essential apologetics podcast listening – I really like it, my friends really like it and I’m sure you would too!
Why? Because there is nothing to hide behind!
'Experts' present their views but then must be prepared to defend them, publicly, – how good is that!
