Episode 17: ‘The Other Worldview,’ and How Jesus is So Much Greater Than You Knew

The Thinking Christian podcast is back! I’m returning with thoughts on Peter Jones’s excellent 2015 book The Other Worldview: Exposing Christianity’s Greatest Threat.

Can Science Survive Dan Brown? (Review of His Novel Origin)

Book Review Someone who knows something faith and science had better do it, I thought, so I guess I’ll read Dan Brown’s latest novel. Pardon my reluctance, but I knew something about Brown’s reputation as a writer. It’s called Origin: A Novel. I’d heard about it via news of...
