Description-

Saturday 7th April 2018 – 02:30 pm

Bart Campolo is the son of high-profile Christian speaker, author and sociologist Tony Campolo. Bart became a Christian in his teens and went on to run an inner city Christian youth ministry. However Bart recently announced that he had lost his faith altogether and become a Humanist chaplain.

Justin interviews Bart alongside Sean McDowell. Sean also has a well-known father in ministry – Josh McDowell. But when Sean experienced his own crisis of faith he found the rational basis he needed to support his faith. Justin chats to Bart about the reasons for his deconversion as spelled out in a recent documentary ‘Leaving My Father’s Faith’, and Sean responds to Bart’s newly adopted Humanist perspective.

Crusades vs.Jihad?

I found This Article to be helpful on comparing the oft-cited atrocities of the west in the name of “Christianity” to the holy wars of Islam. there is a stark difference between Islam and Christianity that detractors of the west and Christianity should take seriously if they want to be intellectually honest.

I also recommend Paul Copan’s book Is God A Moral Monster?: Making Sense of the Old Testament God for an honest discussion about the God of Christianity as well as a rebuttal of many arguments against God by the “new Atheists”.
