The City Podcast: Homophobia and Other Power Words

by Timothy Motte on August 25, 2014

Some words stop discussion dead.

Being committed to the Liberal Arts, this is not something we are in favor of. And yet, we still need to be able to sum up our positions in a word. We still need labels.

So today we have a political scientist, a philosopher, a Bible translator, and a Great Books educator discussing how to continue discussion in the face of words that demonize and marginalize.

Featuring: Dr. John Mark Reynolds, Cate MacDonald, Dr. Robert Stacey, Dr. David Capes

The City Podcast: Christianity on Trial

by Timothy Motte on August 18, 2014

We place a lot of faith in the judicial system’s ability to discover truth. We use it to determine everything from parental custody to bankruptcy of corporations to the death penalty. These are weighty matters.

Why would we not apply this tool that we trust to the claims of Christianity?

That is the subject of today’s podcast, featuring Mark Lanier, author of Christianity on Trial.

The City Podcast: The Future of Science

by Timothy Motte on August 11, 2014

Will science always be the way it is now?

Dr. Phillip E. Johnson doesn’t think so. Dr. Johnson is considered to be the father of the Intelligent Design movement, and he has kept a close eye on the scientific community. In this episode he talks with Dr. Reynolds about some exciting new directions starting to emerge in the fields of quantum physics and information theory.

Science need not keep its materialist foundation forever. It can change and is changing. 

Featuring: Dr. Phillip E. Johnson, Dr. John Mark Reynolds, Randall Gremillion
