Reasonable Faith in an Uncertain World

by Max Andrews

This year’s Unbelievable conference is 12 July 2014. I haven’t scheduled out my summer yet but there’s a likelihood I’d be able to attend and I would love to meet fellow lovers of reason, truth, and Jesus at the conference. If you see me there please come up and introduce yourself!

  • This year’s conference will help ordinary Christians like you be equipped to:
  • Be confident in your faith and share it effectively
  • Engage with atheism, Islam and other worldviews
  • Give good reasons for God and the truth of Christianity

Top Ten Podcasts for the Christian Thinker

by Max Andrews

The following are a list of podcasts that I’ve been following and listening to that have been quite helpful in my philosophical, scientific, and theological studies.  The criteria for consideration are based on 1) quality of content, 2) accurate presentation of the material, 3) constructive and respectful criticism of opposing views, 4) frequency of podcast release, and 5) a broad range of topics/issues discussed.

Aside from my ‘official’ list I have my own podcast: EavesdroppingEavesdropping provides a conversational, informal podcast that is sometimes a monologue or dialogue with guests concerning various topics including philosophy, theology, science, contemporary events, and random meanderings of a philosopher. The primary focuses are philosophy of science, multiverse scenarios, and Molinism.

The Unbelievable? Conference is Giving a Skeptical World Reasons to Believe

by Max Andrews

Justin Brierley and Primer Christian Radio is hosting an apologetics conference this year in partnership with Hugh Ross and Ken Samples with Reasons to Believe.  The theme of the conference is ‘Giving a Skeptical World Reasons to Believe.’ For all my UK brothers and skeptic friends, I hope that you’re able to make it to the conference.  For those of us across the pond it’s very likely that we won’t be able to make it.  There are DVD’s that are made afterwards, which are available for purchase.  This is excellent material to help equip you to understand and respond to questions about the faith.  A few of the speakers include Hugh Ross, Ken Samples, Michael Green, John Lennox, Krish Kandiah, Bonnie Yule-Kuehne, and more.  What’s very important is that you absorb this material yourself.  I remember hearing Dan Wallace say that the road to hell is lined with the bones of apostate apologists.  This knowledge will be edifying for the saints.  Use it. Know it. Share it.  Please pray for the speakers and for minds to be opened, that fruit will blossom, and that people may be saved as a result of this knowledge.

Unbelievable? The Conference 2102 Giving a Skeptical World Reasons to Believe

Unbelievable? The Conference: Giving a Skeptical World Reasons to Believe

by Max Andrews

Most of my blog followers are from North America but I do have several followers in the UK.  I want to promote this conference coming up hosted by Premier Christian Radio’s Unbelievable? hosted by Justin Brierly and partnering with Hugh Ross and Reasons to Believe.

We live in a sceptical world. Atheism has taken on an evangelistic tone in the UK. Secularists claim to have a monopoly on reason. So how should the Church respond?

Premier Christian Radio presents an apologetics day conference aimed at equipping everyday Christians with reasons for the truth of their faith. The conference will also focus on how to share these truths in a fruitful and engaging way.

This year’s Conference partner is Reasons To Believe – a Christian apologetics teaching and research organisation with the mission to spread the Christian Gospel by demonstrating that sound reason and scientific research consistently uphold, rather than erode, confidence in the truth of the Bible.

Apologetics315 and Reasons to Believe in the Multiverse

by Max Andrews

I just wanted to share this interview conducted by Brian Auten with Apologetics315 and astrophysicist Jeff Zweerink with Reasons to Believe.  My graduate research is on fine-tuning and the multiverse so it’s hard for me to pass this up.
