In this blast from the past, J. Warner Wallace examines another aspect of the classic “Problem of Evil”. Why would an all-loving and all-powerful God allow people to commit horrific crimes? Doesn’t He have the power to stop these kinds of crimes? Doesn’t He care enough about us, as potential victims, to stop them? Do examples of moral evil demonstr…
 
Shane Morris visits with Dr. Thomas Price about Athanasius' On The Incarnation. The pair discuss the significance of Jesus being man and how Advent is an important time for the Christian, and not only to celebrate the birth of Christ. This is a portion of an extended conversation Shane has with Dr. Price on the Upstream podcast. To receive the full…
 
Why do little kids love stories so much? What is it in them that wants a story before bedtime? Why do they listen so intently and question you about every detail? Why is it that whenever you overhear two or three little children on the playground, they’re almost undoubtedly in character as warriors, or princesses, or police officers, or cowboys, or…
 
Classical Christian educator and CIRCE Institute contributor Heidi White joins Shane at the Anselm Society’s “Imagination Redeemed” conference to explain why reading the great stories to your children can awaken them to moral truth. ** In Show References ** The Anselm Society: www.anselmsociety.org Circe Institute: https://www.circeinstitute.org…
 
Foreign affairs are a new beat for the Upstream podcast, and one with a complicated relationship to worldview. The idea that ideas can affect the fortunes of nations isn’t a new one, but it is a tricky one to trace out. As I talked with Pastor Jean-Lubin Beaucejour and Darrow Miller about the plight of Haiti, I was reminded of two equal but opposit…
 
In this blast from the past, Jim talks about the problem of natural evil as an obstacle to faith in an all-powerful and all-loving God. How can such a God exist and allow natural evil to exist in our world? Also, Jim discusses the importance of prioritizing issues as we approach the General Election, and responds to a listener email.…
 
Shane visits with Pastor and director of Bethesda Evangelical Mission in Haiti, Lubin Beaucejour in the first of two part special on Haiti. Pastor Lubin gives a "boots on the ground" perspective of the crisis and Haiti and helps us understand the cultural underpinnings. In the second half of the show, Shane visits with Darrow Miller, co-founder of …
 
No political movement has taken refuge behind as many excuses as the “pro-choice” movement. Early advocates of legal abortion dismissed unborn babies as “clumps of cells,” and “fish-like”—non-entities without moral value. When the Supreme Court handed down its ruling in Roe v. Wade in 1973, the majority based their justification for legal abortion …
 
Max McLean is bringing Lewis to life for a generation of theatre goers. His Fellowship for the Performing Arts has toured the country bringing C.S. Lewis from the page to the stage. During Covid, McLean pivoted their in-person presentations to transform one of their most popular presentations to a feature film. The Most Reluctant Convert chronicles…
 
I’ve had the same exchange with perhaps half a dozen fellow Christians over the years. It goes like this: I’m talking about the numerous benefits of regular exercise, especially outdoors. I point out, following writers like John Piper, that taking care of our bodies is an essential part of spiritual, not just physical, health. We are embodied spiri…
 
Why has Jesus inspired more famous, historic musicians than any other person in history? What impact has Jesus had on music and architecture, and what can we learn about Jesus from studying the history of music? J. Warner answers these questions in this episode of the NRBtv Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast.…
 
The Abolition of Man is likely C.S. Lewis's most challenging work. It is dense and rich with analysis and direction. Thankfully, Dr. Michael Ward has written a companion to guide readers through Lewis's piece thought-by-thought. Shane interviews Dr. Ward today, exploring Ward's After Humanity and explaining a few of the finer points of The Abolitio…
 
As far as I can tell, the original quote came from an episode of “That 70s Show.” A character whose name I don’t know because I never watched it says, “Well, I’ve decided to major in philosophy.” Another character responds, “Well that’s good, because they just opened that big philosophy factory in Green Bay.” We laugh because we immediately get the…
 
Shane visits with Joe Rigney, President and Associate Professor of Theology and Literature at Bethlehem College & Seminary. Dr. Rigney has written numerous books on Lewis, including Live Like a Narnian: Christian Discipleship in Lewis's Chronicles and Lewis on the Christians Life: Becoming Truly Human in the Presence of God. Shane finds a deeper un…
 
Why did C. S. Lewis describe bad teaching methods—out of a grammar text, no less—as “the abolition of man?” Wasn’t he being a tad dramatic? Not if you understand Lewis’ biblically-and-theologically-informed view of what it means to be human, and how evil dehumanizes us. Let me explain. Scripture speaks of the penalty for sins in various ways. Somet…
 
Is there a reason so many famous scientists from history were Jesus-followers? Is there something about the Christian worldview that encourages an exploration of the natural world? Why have Christians dominated the sciences and what did these Christians say about Jesus? J. Warner answers these questions in this episode of the NRBtv Cold-Case Christ…
 
Shane welcomes C. S. Lewis guru Andrew Lazo to explore the countless themes from “The Abolition of Man” that Lewis scatters through Narnia, the Space Trilogy, and numerous other books. To receive The Abolition of Man, by C.S. Lewis, and After Humanity, by Michael Ward, as well as a video series explaining each chapter in Abolition of Man and access…
 
When I welcomed Dr. James Cantor to the program, we talked a great deal about science—about what it can tell us of gender dysphoria in minors, and what it can’t tell us. We discussed the wisdom of performing medical or surgical alterations on children, and whether science supports such radical interventions as a means of restoring mental health. Ab…

Is there something unique about Jesus when compared to other alleged gods? Why do so many other world religions acknowledge Jesus in some way? Should people who are interested in the existence of God start with an investigation of Jesus? J. Warner answers these questions in this episode of the NRBtv Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast.…
 
In their new book, “Treading Boldly Through a Pornographic World,” Josh Glaser and Daniel Weiss tell the stories of parents who suddenly noticed changes in the behavior of their teenage sons. These young men were inexplicably losing interest in hobbies, relationships, sports, and other activities that once excited and motivated them. They became re…
 
Facebook is, well, Facebook. There’s a certain element of absurdity to it and that’s just part of the package. Logging in to this establishment and expecting the best of the human mind is like walking into a Burger King and expecting filet mignon on fine china. Nothing wrong with Burger King if that’s what you’re after. But there’s a definite ripe …
 
The Babylon Bee: It’s a go-to source for us beleaguered believers who need a chuckle. Or two or three. Shane Morris welcomes the Bee’s Editor-in-Chief, Kyle Mann, as they discuss the role satire can play in telling the truth to a culture that no longer believes in truth. What are the Bee’s boundaries? At what point can satire go too far? And how do…
 
Writing in the New York Times this week, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary professor Karen Swallow Prior calls abortion “a failure for every woman and her unborn child—a failure of love, justice, and mercy.” She goes on to praise Texas’ controversial new heartbeat law as a call back to these ideals and a reminder of biological and ontologic…
 
Is the story of Jesus like ancient mythologies that preceded Him? What are these alleged similarities? Can they be explained in some way? Do they invalidate the claims of the New Testament, or do these similarities actually VALIDATE the Deity of Jesus? J. Warner answers these questions in this episode of the NRBtv Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast.…
